Your Stress is Failing Your Skin. Now What?

By Just Her | February 24, 2021

Stress is an inevitable part of life and as you hit 30, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and patchy skin begin to show. What you can’t see however, is that your skin is gradually losing its luster and elasticity, unable to bounce back and repair itself like it used to. Here are 6 easy steps to give back your skin the love it deserves. - By Rhythm Bharal

1. Use Vitamin-Rich Sunscreen Indoors

If a year in quarantine has taken you off your sunscreen game, bring it back now. Staying indoors has led to a lot of screen time–a major source of Blue Light and a leading cause of pre-mature aging, loss of collagen and elastic tissue, and the appearance of age spots. A sunscreen (SPF 50 or over) can help block the rays and keep your skin cool.

2. Practice Stress Management Techniques

Yoga, meditation, and exercise not just do a world of good for your physical and mental balance, but also your skin by minimizing the impact of stress caused by stress hormone, cortisol. increases the skin's oil production leading to break outs. Take out 20 minutes a day to declutter your mind—you will be surprised with the wonders it does to your skin.

3. Take Your Antioxidants Seriously

Perhaps the longest trending buzz word on social—and not without reason—is antioxidants. Antioxidants, found in blueberries, bell peppers, spinach, broccoli, and nuts among other foods, reduce inflammation and help repair damaged skin. A daily inclusion of antioxidants protects you from sun damage and keep you looking younger.

4. All Superheroes Need A Sidekick

While we girls love to be superheroes at home and at work, we all need a sidekick to catch us when we flail. When collagen production slows down after 30, fine lines and wrinkles appear, causing us to lose our shine and radiance. JustHer’s Vegetarian Collagen Builder is a clean nutrition supplement that acts as your sidekick while you run the world.

5. Don’t Compromise on Sleep

Ambition, social life, or hobbies that eat into your sleep time cause more harm than mental peace. Sleep is essential for the body to repair itself, which is why you need to dump your engagements to catch those precious hours at night.
