Be Guided | Ways Your Emotions Affects Your Skin

Raise your hand if every time a full- fledged conversation on emotions begins, you think of the movie Inside Out. It' s a fantastic film that demonstrates how multiple emotions are always at work inside our bodies daily, and how an overdose of one may be a burden! But did you know that our emotions have an impact on our skin? Yes, any repressed emotion can hurt your skin. Here are some of the emotions that have a significant impact on our skin, as well as how to address them right away! (As much as possible, choose happiness and optimism. )

1. Anger

We' re all irritable from time to time. We all come into contact with things that irritate us, whether at home, at work, or on the go. However, you can avoid the worst impacts of anger on your skin by remaining calm in the face of such rage. Frowning tightens the muscles in your face at first. Over time, this might result in visible lines and wrinkles. It also has the unusual effect of slowing down your skin' s capacity to recover. When you' re furious, your body creates cortisol, which is a stress hormone. Collagen production is hampered as a result of this. A crucial component of skin healing.

The longer you' re furious, or the longer you' ve been upset, the slower your cuts and bruises will heal. It sounds so ominous that I' m irritated by the fact that I' m irritated. *ugh*

2. Anxiety

For most of us, stress has become second nature. While it' s natural to feel anxious from time to time, and even healthy, excessive stress can hurt the skin. Cortisol has a significant influence on this as well. When you' re stressed out, your body produces extra cortisol, which circulates freely throughout your body. This can cause your blood vessels to become more brittle, slowing down the formation of skin cells by up to 50%. Stress and cortisol are, in essence, the leading drivers of premature skin aging.

This has further negative consequences. For example, to feel better, we may turn to comfort foods such as chocolate and alcohol. Our skin condition can be exacerbated by poor food habits. Skin problems such as acne, rosacea, and eczema are aggravated by stress.

3. Depressed mood

Depression is horrible enough as it is, whether it' s a reaction to a single event or a full- blown clinical depression. Cortisol (yeah, again! ) slows down your body' s capacity to deal with damage and inflammation, thus frowning and furrowing your brow can create lines on your skin. Sleep deprivation is a typical depressive side effect. If you don' t get enough sleep, your skin won' t be able to effectively heal itself from day- to- day damage, and indicators of this can show up as dull skin, dark circles, diminished skin elasticity, or even uneven pigmentation.

So, how can we preserve our skin in good condition?

Let' s be honest: we can' t completely avoid experiencing negative feelings. The greatest method to deal with these feelings is to confront them instead of avoiding them. Avoid toxic individuals and places that drain you physically and emotionally, plan your day, and, most importantly, get plenty of rest.

That being said, what makes a person feel comfortable varies from one person to the next. So do what you think is best for you.
