In honor of National Stress Awareness Day, which focuses on identifying and reducing the stress factors in your life, we present Stress Repair for the Stress Aware!
Tired of your stressed out skin? When you're stressed out, your body releases hormones like cortisol and adrenaline into your body. Cortisol causes an increased amount of oil production in your skin glands. This can lead to an uneven complexion, blotchiness, dullness, clogged pores and acne breakouts.
In order to relieve stressed out skin, we recommend:
- Maintaining a good skincare routine every day/night
- Exercising regularly
- Eating a healthy, balanced diet with whole foods
- Getting enough sleep
- Upping your self-care game
The Mask draws impurities to the surface of the skin, gives a minor exfoliation, and rebalances sebum production. It also promotes and even skin tone with the cicer seed extract.
Next up the Essence Toner, our “miracle water.” It adjusts the pH level of the skin. It also contains cicer seed extract to promote an even skin tone, and hydrates skin with three types of Hyaluronic Acid. Plus it accelerates cell turnover.
This is a great destress formula to use anytime you're feeling the pressure. Taking time to heal your skin and center yourself will reduce stress in and of itself. Taking a little extra time to meditate or garden or forest bathe before or afterwards will multiply the healing effects dramatically. Enjoy scrubbing and toning!
