To most people, natural beauty is always a result of good genes. However, this is not always the case since beauty is a combination of different factors which include stress and lifestyle. Most people who are stressed tend to look way older than their age. This is because high stress level is known to trigger the release of cortisol, a hormone which ends up causing all sorts of things to take place in your body.  Here are some of the ways in which stress can negatively affect your appearance and what you should do if you are to have a glowing skin again.

  • Hair Loss

There is a very close relationship between stress and the loss of hair that you may be experiencing.Whenever you are stressed, your body tends to accelerate the natural hair cycles causing it to fall out faster than is the norm.This action takes place since stress switches your hair’s growing cycle from the growing phase to resting phase. To be on the safe side, you will have to carefully look back at your stress levels over the last couple of weeks or months in order to determine the trigger. Once the trigger is successfully controlled, your hair will go back to its regular growing cycle.

  • Puffy and Tired Eyes

When sleeping, your body performs a skin repair to fix any damage that may have taken place during the day. However, staying awake for longer periods will end up putting more stress on your skin since you will not get that restorative sleep that your body badly needs. You will, therefore, end up having a pool of fluids under your eyes thus creating a dark, puffy beneath the eye circles. This can be quite frustrating as you can no longer interact confidently with your colleagues at work thus lowering your performance levels.

  • Acne

Stress is known to increase the inflammation of your body thus causing skin issues such as eczema and acne. At first, you may see it as a normal skin problem which can be treated using products like Minetan. However, with time, you will realize that these products will not work unless you decide to deal with your stress levels. Once you do this, you will no longer have acne formed on your face or any other body part.

What to Do About It

In order to restore your beauty, you will need to look for ways in which you can handle your stress. This will mean taking some breaks and relaxing in order to limit the effect that stress has on your skin. It is highly advisable that you look for the best possible ways of depressing so as to decrease the levels of cortisol in your body. In addition, you must also get enough sleep while at the same time eating well if you are to give your body ample time and the nutrients it needs to repair itself.
