why stress wrinkles more than just your mind

distorts the turnover of skin cells, which in turn cause gaps in your skins barrier wall.


The Effects

  • Accelerated aging, reflected in the formation of deep wrinkles.
  • Destruction of optimal skin hydration leading to dehydrated skin cellsthis is driven by essential water being evaporated.
  • Your skin may start to dry out and become more sensitive and overreactive.
  • Increase susceptibility to skin allergies such as atopic dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.
  • Itching and flaking.
  • Facial redness and flushing.
