Wipe That Stress Off Your Face

How you can undo the dam­age that anx­i­ety wreaks on your skin

Men's Health (Australia) - - GROOMING -

SLEEPLESSNESS AND STRESS mess with more than your mood. Look in the mir­ror. Any new lines or jowly-look­ing skin could be traced back to last night’s news or yes­ter­day’s of­fice has­sle. That’s be­cause stress spikes lev­els of the hor­mone cor­ti­sol in your body, which “cre­ates ox­ida­tive stress that re­sults in sag­ging and less abil­ity to re­pair skin,” says der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr An­gela Lamb. “It can also ag­gra­vate pre-ex­ist­ing skin con­di­tions or cre­ate new ones.” Now that re­searchers are de­vel­op­ing prod­ucts with in­gre­di­ents known to counter this dam­age, you can worry less about worry lines and do some­thing about them in­stead.
