Working for that flawless and glowing skin can be tricky. You’ll have to cut on a lot and bring about a few necessary changes into your lifestyle. Ever heard of ‘stressors?’ Well, they are the factors which can strain your skin and bring out those unwanted pimples and blemishes.
Here are the 4 stressors that could damage your skin.
1. Processed Sugar
We love a sweet treat every once in a while but a diet high in processed sugar accelerates the development of fine lines & wrinkles. Have that gulab jamun, drink that coke. Just don’t binge it everyday.
2. Over Exfoliation
We should only exfoliate once weekly. The thin layer of bacteria is a vital part of our skin’s lipid barrier. When we exfoliate, we eat away at this barrier. It does rebuild, but if we constantly erode at it all week, we destroy a crucial part of our skin’s natural protection.
Fragrant skin products like essential oils have an accumulative effect on our skin barrier, causing irritation. They can cause contact dermatitis, eczema, photosensitivity (making the skin more sensitive to light and UV rays), & burns.
Neglecting to hydrate properly can cause a cascade of health issues, but we’re going to see it on our skin first & foremost. Our skin will appear dull, uneven, patchy, & flaky. Drink soothing herbal teas, at least 2 liters of water a day, & eat hydrating foods like cucumbers, leafy greens etc.
Try these few steps for a clearer skin. Keep in mind, results will take up to two months. Got to do it for a healthy and flawless skin, no?
