When it comes to owning skin that glows and hair that shines, it’s not necessarily up to the products you buy that will make all the magic happen. The most essential secret to healthy skin and hair starts with your mental health.


Picture this: a man or woman overly anxious and stressed out. What can you see on their face? How are they moving their body? What are they doing with their hands? Now picture this: a man, woman or child completely relaxed, generating a calm energy, moving with ease. What does their face look like? How do they sit or move across the room? What do their skin and hair look like? It doesn’t take a scientist or chemist to comprehend how damaging stress can be to your skin, hair and overall health. But to understand the effects a little deeper, let’s dive into how stress directly affects your skin and hair. 


How Stress Affects Your Skin

Daily stresses can trigger a series of breakouts, whether it’s acne, or eczema, and in the long run, wrinkles (plus all those other ‘fun’ conditions that ruin our day, potentially our week, or even our year!) When the body is under stress, the endocrine system will send out Cortisol, the stress hormone from the adrenal glands, which at the end of the line will lead to a production of more oil and sebum. Excess cortisol will lead to lackluster skin, wrinkles and you guessed it, pimples. According to an article in Science Daily, Dr. Mayoral explains, “psychological stress adversely affects the normal functions of the skin.” So imagine what happens when you stress over a rosacea, psoriasis, or acne breakout. That’s right, more redness, more dryness, more stress. Sounds like a vicious cycle!


What to do about it

So, now that you’re totally stressed about trying not to be stressed what can you finally do to cure your temporary or long term skin condition? First of all, let’s try to accept the rhythm of our skin during the good times and the bad. Because yes, we all have highs and lows when it comes to our skin. Even some of your friends or colleagues, who according to your standard have perfect glowing skin, will have, in their minds, according to their standards, a breakout. We believe the best remedy for your skin is to start by drinking more water, filtered water if possible. This way you can naturally hydrate your skin and rinse out any toxins clinging to your pores, skin, or inner stomach lining. Don’t become a victim to your skin, instead take positive action. 


After you’ve treated yourself to a relaxing lavender bath, and have made sure you always have a bottle of water around, (ie in your car, by your desk, by your computer, etc.) then let’s pay attention to what we eat. Healthy nutritious food, like fruits, vegetables, nuts, lean meats and fish will replenish your skin and hair. Unhealthy fried foods with heaps of saturated fats, processed ingredients, allergies that you may not even be aware of, all affect the condition of your skin! Who needs New Years to make big positive changes? We sure don’t!


How Stress Affects Your Hair

When the body’s in overdrive, trying to combat external environmental/social ‘villains,’ all the energy and healthy nutrients your body has stored up will go to your key survival organs like the brain, heart and lungs. This means, the healthy blood flow and nutrients aren’t making it to your scalp and hair follicles. And, if healthy soft coils or curls is what you’re after, you may not find it in a stress filled life. The interruption of healthy blood flow to the scalp can often lead to hair loss, frequent breakage, or prevent new growth. Now obviously we want to avoid such consequences at all costs! But how do we encourage new hair growth and healthy sheen looking hair?


What to do about it

We have a few natural solutions to encourage healthy hair growth and own a head full of nutritious hair. After the panic phase has passed, and you’re ready to start making positive changes, you can start by treating yourself to a soothing head massage. We mean this with all seriousness. Ask a partner to massage your scalp, or love yourself and do it yourself! Massaging the scalp encourages blood flow to the scalp, so besides for it’s blissful feeling, it will also improve your locs! Drinking lots of water and eating a healthy diet will also have a tremendous impact on the condition of your hair. Try cutting out sugary sweets and heavy meals and meats for two weeks, combined with a more active lifestyle and see how your overall health and wellness shift in a more positive direction. No matter what the season is, we deserve to feel and look our best! Don’t you agree?


Our Final Thoughts 

You got this! We know it’s no fun dealing with dry skin, scalp or hair, or breaking out on your face, back or chest. The good news is, you can handle it, even in moments you think you can’t. Pay close attention to the rhythm of your body, when you're prone to breakouts, when you’re having great hair days vs bad hair days. And work with your body by feeding her/him with all the nutrition you need to look and feel your best. Stay calm, it’s the best you can do for your skin and hair!
