Does The Way You Think And Feel Impact The Overall Health Of Your Skin?

April 27, 2021
Do you ever feel like your skin just doesn’t like you, no matter how well you treat it? You’ve tried a wide range of products ranging from drug store brands to expensive high end lines, different skincare routines, altered your diet, and switched to silk pillowcases. Your skin should be healthy and glowing, but despite all your best efforts you still encounter issues. Perhaps there’s an underlying issue that you may never have considered: your own mind.

Does The Way You Think And Feel Impact The Overall Health Of Your Skin?

Even the highest quality skincare products can’t combat the effects of stress on the body. We all know that excessive stress can take a toll on our mental health, but not everyone realizes just how much it affects our physical well-being. When the body is under constant pressure it produces more cortisol, the ‘stress’ hormone. Cortisol is responsible for many things, including acting as an anti-inflammatory, and controlling salt and water balance. These are very important when it comes to the condition of your skin. Dehydrated skin looks dull and dry, while inflamed skin has redness and sometimes even rashes.

Sometimes stress is unavoidable, but you can train your mind to respond to it better. Learning to think, speak, and act more positively will improve your mental (and consequently physical) health in many ways. You can start by reading books about how to achieve a more positive mindset, practice yoga or meditation, and just surround yourself with positive things and people. Your mind is infinitely more valuable than you realize.

Holland Rose strives to create skincare that is unparalleled in its quality and sustainability efforts, but it works best in combination with a positive outlook on life.
