Your Skin on Stress

????????????????????When you’re living life in the fast lane, your skin is often the first thing to freak out. What happens when a schizo schedule becomes totally routine? — Keep calm and read on.

Stress factor: Working like Crazy
What you’ll see: Redness and Breakouts

Chronic high levels of stress – a by-product of a competitive job market and 24/7 reachability – trigger your brain to release neuropeptides that cause blushing and sensitivity. On top of that, your body releases an excess of androgen hormones that can bring on breakouts.

Calm It Down:

Stress factor: Partying Away Stress
What you’ll see: Wrinkles and Dullness

Drinking dehydrates skin, making fine lines look deeper and complexion look dull. Your favorite cocktail or martini  – plus, the carby snacks you binge on after you get home from the party – is packed with sugar and can make you skin look older, faster, through a process called glycation. During this process, sugar impairs the production of collagen and elastin in the skin and can cause your skin to stiffen and lose its springiness. Another issue: smoking (whether you inhale it or not) is full of collagen eating carcinogens that increase your risk of skin cancer.

Party Smart:

Stress factor: Skimping on Sleep
What you’ll see: Flakiness and Dullness

Those late nights at the office and a little late-night DVR time can leave you playing “catch up” on ZZZs during the weekend. This erratic sleep schedule can through off your natural time clock, which inhibits your skin’s ability to stay hydrated. Research shows that poor sleep weakens the barrier function, causing moisture to escape. And chronic sleep deprivation impairs collagen production. After six months of sleep loss, skin starts to lost its suppleness and glow.

Skin Care Mixology – The Line Eraser

c600x1024The Recipe

1. Cleanse: If fine lines and wrinkles are your concern, start with a mild cleanser that also replenishes moisture with ingredients like glycerin, aloe, or panthenol. These plump up skin so the surface looks and feels smoother.

We recommend:

2. Exfoliate: Removing dead cells allows skin to absorb anti-aging ingredients and moisturizers more effectively. Try using pads soaked with an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) like glycolic acid to exfoliate and prompt collagen production.

We recommend:

3. Treat: Apply a rentinol every other night for anti-aging benefits. You can alternate between the AHA and retinol, but don’t use them both on the same night or you risk inflammation that can trigger more wrinkling.

We recommend:

  • SkinMedica Tri Retinol Complex
  • PCA Skin Retinol Renewal pHaze 26
  • Neova Matrix Active Retinol

4. Hydrate: Us moisturizes with collagen boosting peptides or antioxidants like green tea and vitamin C that prevent and repair damage to collagen and elastin, the “scaffolding” that keeps your skin plump, firm, and smooth.

We recommend:

  • Revision Vitamin C 30% Lotion
  • Topix Replenix Power of Three Cream
  • Revaleskin Intense Recovery Treatment

5. Protect: Always add a broad-spectrum sunscreen in the morning for protection against the sun’s damaging rays.

We recommend:

Cheers!

How Your Phone is Messing with Your Skin

04-acne-hiddenYou feel like completely lost without it, but your lifeline to your friends, family, and work could be wreaking havoc on your skin.

Habit: Squinting your eyes to read the small type on your screen.

Problem: Crow’s feet and 11 lines (the vertical frown line between the brows), which normally don’t show up until your 30s or 40s, are showing up more and more on people in their 20s.

Quick Fix: Increase your font size to “Grandma” (20pts or bigger), and up your screen’s brightness. Look for products with argireline to temporarily freeze muscle movements. Some studies show up to a 60% reduction in wrinkle depth in one month of use.

We recommend:

Habit: Constantly looking down to check texts, emails, Facebook, etc.

Problem: It’s called text-neck—a slack, untoned neck and jawline caused by a breakdown in collagen and elastin. These tiny fibers only have an infinite number of times they can fold. The constant up-and-down movement weakens this support structure.

Quick Fix: Hold your phone eye level to minimize folding at the neck. Apply a skin-firming, peptide-rich cream on your jawline and down your neck. According to a study in Molecular Pharmaceutics, products containing high levels of Matrixyl can nearly double collagen production.

We recommend: 

Habit: Talking long enough that your phone gets hot against your face.

Problem: Prolonged exposure to heat from any source can increase melanin production in that area—and if brown spots and an uneven tone weren’t bad enough, research shows they can make you look up to 10 years older!

Quick fix: Use a handsfree headset or speakerphone. A brightening cream, with ingredients like licorice, can help fade unwanted spots.

We recommend:

Habit: Pressing your face against your phone. (See those oil and makeup streaks on your screen?)

Problem: The touch-screen trend has caused a rise in acne in the “phone zone”—temples, cheeks, and chin. The dirt and bacteria that live on your screen are transferred to your skin when you talk on the phone which may lead to breakouts.

Quick fix: Clean your phone daily with an anti-bacterial wipe. Use a benzoyl peroxide lotion or glycolic acid face pads to keep your pores clear.

We recommend: 

Are you guilty of any of these bad habits?
