Impact of Stress on your Skin & Ways to Fix them

All around us, things are contributing to our stress. Although we choose to ignore it, stress can have very devastating effects. Also, it could be difficult to explain to others, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that all is in your head. Researchers have revealed that the body goes through a lot of changes when under stress, damaging your skin and hair. So if you don’t keep those stress levels under check, this stress can devastate your beauty. Here are some ways this stress can affect your skin along with the ways you can counteract them.

Eye Bags

Your task list could have a lot of weight on your mind, which could keep you up for hours, preventing you from getting any sleep. This could result in the fluid pooling below the lower eyelid, creating a puffy mess. The stomach sleepers will get it even worse, thanks to gravity.

To prevent this from happening, make sure that you get at least 8 hours of sleep. Make sure to turn off any electronic devices an hour before you go to sleep. During this hour you can make yourself a nice cup of caffeine less chamomile tea to alleviate your tensions and calm you before bed. If you still wake up with puffy eyes in the morning, hold the back of cold spoon to the lower eyelid area to help the drainage of the fluid.


The chemical reaction caused by stress can help promote skin issues regardless of your proneness towards eczema, psoriasis or acne. Stress releases cortisol, which can throw off the balance of other hormones in your body causing acne breakout all over your body. Also, stress can mess up the balance of the good and the bad bacteria inside your gut, resulting in acne all over your body.
To get rid of these, practice deep breathing. Inhale to fill you belly, hold for a few seconds and exhale through the mouth. It will help calm anxiety. Throughout the day drink a lot of water and eat a balanced diet, since the body fails to properly handle stress without proper nourishment.

A Flushed Face

When in stress, people tend to take shorter, shallower breaths and even hold their breath for short time periods which can produce redness on your face.

When in stress try to remember to breath in elixirs such as the ones which contain patchouli and chamomile, which help alleviate the situation and keep you from getting super stressed. Although it sounds naively simple, it is integral for a properly functioning system along with lower stress levels.

These are just some of the ways stress can manifest on your skin. Other ways include deep groves on your nails, thinning of hair, gray hairs, fine lines, hives & rashes along with dry and flaky skin. Either try to keep calm and carry on, or if you feel like the situation getting out of hands and you don’t have enough time feel free to contact Dermatologist Dr. Shumaila Khan at Skin and Laser clinic in Islamabad – Dermalase for quick and long lasting fixes.

Some natural tips to help your Acne Breakout under control

Acne troubles people all over the world. It is such a skin disorder that plagues people in their teens all the way to their late life. Not only is acne disgusting to look at, it is very painful and distressing and it leaves very long lasting scars even after successful treatment. There are thousands of skin care products in the market targeted at treating acne, but finding the right one for you is a very tedious task. Most of the times, even these products helping in promoting the situation and worsen it for you. So let’s take a look at some of the ways you can fight acne naturally.

Keep your face clean

Whether you have acne or not, it is very important to wash the face twice a day, every day, to remove all sorts of impurities, extra oil and the dead skin cells from the surface. That said, washing more than twice isn’t necessarily better. It can do more harm than good for you. Make sure to use a bowl of warm water along with a very mild facial cleanser. Using strong products can hurt the skin and cause even more damage.

Cut off the dairy

All of us have heard that greasy food as well as chocolate causes breakouts. Studies have revealed that, dairy is usually the cause of these breakouts. Try cutting the dairy out of your diet, and watch your skin starting to clear up instantly. Also there are other ways to increase your calcium intake such as orange juice, asparagus as well as broccoli, etc.

Don’t Pick

The normal life of a breakout is just a couple of days, or maybe even a week, but when you pick at an acne, the red marks left behind could stay there for the rest of your life.  A better substitute is a regular facial practice which can help clean the pores better.

Don’t go overboard with makeup

During an acne breakout, avoid wearing any blush, foundation or powder. If it is absolutely necessary, then make sure that you wash it off at the end of the day. Also make sure to use Non-comedogenic makeup, which is made to inhibit an acne breakout.

Keep an eye on your hair products

Avoid the use of oils, pomades or styling gels on your head. When and if they get to your face, they can block the pores leading to irritation on your skin. Make sure to use a mild shampoo and a conditioner on your skin. Also remember that oily hair can add oil to your skin, so wash your hair often and keep your hair pulled away from your skin.

Other than these tips, there are some foods which can help keep the acne breakout at bay. If you just arrange your diet and include these, you can significantly improve your skin’s condition. They are:

  • Water: the more in your diet the better.
  • Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries: great anti-oxidants.
  • Green Tea: Antioxidants as well as anti-inflammatory.
  • Whole Grains.
  • Olive Oil: rich in mono-saturated fats, good for skin.

So make sure to include these in your diet and have your skin restored to its former glory.
