We all experience some level of stress, whether mental or physical stress. The human body is not built to withstand the constant stress of modern society. When you experience any level of mental or physical strain, it can compromise your immune system and lead to thinning hair and create a borage of skin disorders. Here are 7 Self Care Practices that will help combat stress inducing skin conditions:

  1. Schedule a relaxing facial with a certified esthetician that can help you understand and determine where your skin disorder is stemming from. At Lasting Looks we take an inside-out approach. What I mean by that is your face (your outside organ) is connected to an inside organ. Taking an inside-out approach, we help to treat your skin’s condition by using nourishing ingredients to rebalance your skin from the inside, while using various LED lights and micro-currents on the outside to calm your skin. This is where we like to say “eastern philosophy meets western technology”.
  2. Schedule a massage with a licensed massage therapist. Getting a massage flushes toxins out of your lymphatic system, easing away stress, pinched nerves or pain.It also encourages you to move slower and listen to your body’s needs.
  3. Practice Meditation. Daily meditation allows you to calm your mind and reconnect with yourself.Getting your body into a homeostasis state is critical for your overall health to promote healing and less inflammation in the body. 
  4. Create Work-Life Balance by creating clear boundaries between your work life and your home life. Set daily, manageable goals you can achieve, schedule time to unplug and take care of you. Honor your work commitments at work and honor your life commitments outside of work.
  5. Exercise reduces levels of the body’s stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. It also stimulates the production of endorphins, chemicals in the brain that are the body’s natural painkillers and mood elevators. Endorphins are the chemical known to reduce stress and increase optimism.
  6. Spend 10-50 minutes a day outdoors. Spending a minimum of 10 minutes a day in nature walking or sitting, will improve your mood and lessen the effects of physical and mental stress. You’ll notice that your muscles will relax, blood pressure will lower, and your mental activity will regulate.
  7. Add more laughter into your life! Spend time with family or friends to laugh. Laughter will stimulate your organs by enhancing your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulating your heart, lungs and muscles, and increasing the endorphins that are released by your brain. This activity stimulates circulation and aids in muscle relaxation, which can help reduce some of the physical symptoms of stress. Long term practice in laughter will boost your immune system, relieve pain, boost personal satisfaction and improve your overall mood!
