What Is Anti-Stress Skincare and Why Do You Need It?

What Is Anti-Stress Skincare and Why Do You Need It? Today, there is no need to explain to anyone what stress is because, sadly, everyone has experienced it. Since there is a physiological aspect to stress, it can affect different organs and systems of the body, including the skin. Because of this, cosmetic manufacturers have created anti-stress skincare which is specifically designed to prevent the negative effects of stress on the skin.

Every modern person experiences stress almost daily. Of course, this simply cannot but affect the condition of the skin because increased levels of cortisol, a steroid hormone the body produces in response to stress, can affect some of the processes in the body, including the synthesis and destruction of proteins responsible for the firmness and elasticity of the skin such as collagen and elastin.

In addition, stress makes the skin lose moisture more actively. A combination of increased moisture loss and reduced production of collagen and elastin can make the skin look dull and exacerbate various dermatological problems such as acne, rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis.

How else can your skin respond to stress? It can become dehydrated, begin to flake, and get more vulnerable and sensitive to various external factors. Other reactions to stress include skin redness, itching, rashes, and signs of premature ageing such as pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.

Luckily, there is a way to prevent or at least reduce the effects of everyday stress on the skin. Anti-stress skincare products are specifically designed to relieve stress and keep your skin looking healthy and radiant. The key to their effectiveness is a thoroughly balanced combination of active ingredients that target stress-related skin problems.

Anti-stress skincare products are formulated with soothing, moisturising and regenerative ingredients, antioxidants, and probiotics. The most common active ingredients that can be found in anti-stress skincare include vitamin A (retinol), vitamin C (ascorbic acid), vitamin E (tocopherol), collagen, panthenol, magnesium, various plant extracts (rose hip, orange, green tea, red grape, sea buckthorn, thyme, raspberry, chamomile) and essential oils (citrus, lavender, sage, jasmine, patchouli, cedarwood, geranium).

Many of such products also contain muscle relaxant peptides. When you’re stressed, you might tighten your facial muscles more than normal which may eventually lead to premature wrinkles. Peptides help to relax the facial muscles and prevent the formation of wrinkles.

As a rule, skincare products from anti-stress collections (serums, masks, moisturisers, ampoules, patches) have an instant effect to restore the skin’s health and glow as soon as possible. Unfortunately, they do not solve the underlying problems. As long as your body is exposed to stressors, you will need anti-stress skincare to keep your skin looking healthy.

Because of this, you need to combine the use of anti-stress skincare with simple ways to relieve stress which include getting at least eight hours of sleep at night, eating a healthy, balanced diet, alternating work and rest, and getting enough exercise and fresh air.
