Modern life in all its glory can be wonderful. There are so many things to be grateful for. Indeed, in the world of skin aesthetics, it’s an excellent time for technological advancements that keep us looking youthful for longer.

And yet, very few of us can say we’ve found a way to avoid the more stressful side of modern life.

And while it’s helpful to stop and remind ourselves of the simple things that make life great, sometimes life will throw us a curveball leading to more moments of stress and worry than we deserve.

Stress leaves us with a furrowed brow and keeps us awake at night when what we really need is eight hours of uninterrupted restorative sleep.

Short periods of stress can be managed by the body, but if left unchecked, the stress hormone cortisol can take up residence and lead to frazzled nerves, burnout.

Stress can be insidious, and it’s not until you hit a crisis point in life you realise you’ve been under far more pressure than you might have been aware.

Sleepless nights, low energy or feelings of fatigue, even stubborn belly fat are all signs your stress hormones have been quietly running the show, and many medical conditions are now being linked to long-term stress.

So, even though you may feel like you’re coping with all that modern life can throw at you, it’s certainly worth taking the necessary measures to reduce and relieve stress while your body adapts.

Aiming for a better sleep routine, keeping alcohol in moderation, taking time for yourself, and, whenever possible, eating healthy, nutritious meals and engaging in mindful meditation even if that just means sitting quietly for 10 minutes to soothe your mind and disengage with stress and worry.

Your skin’s response to stress.

And, as the largest organ in your body, your skin plays a vital role in balancing external and environmental stress and healthy functions within your body.

Scientific research has confirmed that the skin is both an immediate stress perceiver and a target of stress responses.

Unfortunately, stress can show up on your face, and your once easy-going skin becomes problematic. Signs of ageing show up, as if overnight, or your skin seems far more sensitive than you ever remember it to be, with irritation, dehydration, facial redness and breakouts your new normal.

Or course, we can brush these things aside as a change in the weather, or you’ve let your usual skincare routine slip a little, which could be true. However, it’s worth noting that your stress hormones can wreak havoc with your skin.
