Is Stress Affecting Your Skin?

Is Stress Affecting Your Skin?

I’ve heard the question many times in clinic. Is stress affecting my skin?

With the pace of modern life, stress has become an unwelcome but frequent guest, it’s not just our peace of mind that’s at stake—it’s also the health of our skin. I’m Dr. Sunny Dhesi, and today, I’m looking into the relationship between stress and your skin health and how the changing seasons affect our skin’s aging process. You can also watch the video newsletter at the end of the blog.

The Hidden Impact of Stress on Your Skin

As a GP and aesthetic doctor, I’ve witnessed firsthand the physical manifestations of stress on my patients’ skin. Itchy, dry patches, and the sudden flare-ups of eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis are not just discomforting but also telltale signs of the turmoil within. The culprit? A hormone called cortisol, which, when elevated due to stress, leads to chronic inflammation and a cascade of skin problems.

Mindfulness and Skin Care: A Dual Approach

In our clinic, we emphasise the power of mindfulness to combat stress. Meditation and a positive mindset are foundational, but sometimes, the skin needs extra care. Our bespoke skincare solutions, like the Made of More range with its CBD balm cleanser, offer a reprieve by targeting inflammation and promoting healing.

Hormones and the Winter Skin Blues

With the winter months come longer nights and a dip in outdoor activities, leading to a decline in skin health. This seasonal shift can accelerate the appearance of ageing, deepening lines, and sagging skin. But fear not, for we have a range of non-invasive treatments, from skin boosters to advanced radiofrequency and IPL therapies, to rejuvenate and restore your skin’s vitality.
