Is stress making us look older?

Pevonia Lessens StressWithout a doubt, and you probably don’t need a blog post to tell you this, stress is written all over our faces! You can see it in your skin tone, texture, elasticity and the absence of a youthful glow.

It would be easy to say, “stress less” but we know that’s easier said than done! However, if we understand why stress affects our skin as well as change a few habits, we will be able to manage the stress and in turn look a whole lot younger!

Dark Circles

When we are stressed our blood flow increases and the fragile capillaries beneath our eyes become engorged so dark circles become more obvious. Drinking more water can help, getting more sleep will certainly improve things, while gently massaging a good eye cream or gel to the delicate eye zone will to help increase blood flow. Apply a soothing eye gel around the eyes and slide your middle and ring finger around the orbital bone (slide outwards on the brow and inwards beneath the eye). We recommend Pevonia C Evolutive Eye Gel, the ginkgo biloba, this helps increase the circulation while soothing and hydrating the eye contour.

Mini-menopause

When we are stressed our body creates cortisol, which can lead to a drop in Oestrogen, much like it does when we are in menopause. Less Oestrogen means less collagen and less moisture. Nourish your skin from within with hydrating food such as fish, nuts, avocado, sweet potato, olive oil and cucumbers to name a few. And “up the hydration” with products rich in collagen and hyaluronic acid. We recommend Pevonia Power Repair Line for bringing back the bounce and youthfulness of dehydrated skin.

Wrinkles

As our hydration levels decrease our collagen and elastin production decreases. The skin cells that form these vital proteins take a siesta and meanwhile our expressions seem to become indelibly etched into our faces. Maintaining hydration is key but to restore the damage already caused it might be time to get out the big guns and reboot the skin cells which have become lazy. We recommend Pevonia Micro-Retinol line to help rejuvenate the skin from within.

Stress leads to inflammation which may lead to rashes, rosacea, eczema flare ups and changes in skin moisture. It’s vital to maintain your skin’s barrier function with filmogenic products that trap moisture and to reduce inflammation in the skin. Take cooler showers and baths, avoid synthetics in warm weather and apply soothing products such as Pevonia Propolis Concentrate and Reactive Cream which provide both anti-inflammatory properties as well as restoring your protective acid mantle.

A Heavy Jaw

Grinding teeth and clenching of the jaw are common symptoms of stress. Unfortunately, these habits can cause the jaw muscles to work overtime. This can result not only in damaged teeth, but also a heavier than usual jawline, as the muscles become larger with the grinding action. Be mindful of this habit by relaxing the jaw whenever you think of it, and massage the jawline every evening while cleansing your skin and applying your moisturiser. Take time out to completely relax with a warm bath, a short nap or just doing something that distracts you from over-thinking! Even though you might only be able to spare 10 minutes your body trains itself to be more relaxed over time and will thank you.

Stress can cause sudden hair loss by literally flipping the switch on the hair follicle’s growth stage from an active to a resting phase. Once the follicle enters this resting phase prematurely, it stays there for about three months, after which time a large amount of hair will be shed. Avoid over-styling hair and using too many heat appliances. We recommend a weekly hair mask using the Micro-Emulsion Massage Oil Anti-Stress. This not only helps stimulate a healthy scalp, but leaves hair soft and conditioned too.

Adult Acne

Acne isn’t just for hormonal-crazed teenagers. Many adults can’t seem to outgrow it because of stress hormones. Cleanse your skin thoroughly every morning and evening and exfoliate every couple of days to keep skin clear and pure, we recommend Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser for mild breakouts or the Clarifyl Line for more serious adult acne. It purifies, calms inflammation and deals with pesky breakouts pronto.

Clearly there is a connection between how we look and how we feel and think. The good news is that we can get to the root cause of our stress and manage it!

Hyaluronic Acid with that?

Pevonia Organic Skincare Australia - Hyaluronic Acid with thatYou may have heard of the ingredient Hyaluronic Acid. Beauty editors, bloggers and skin care aficionados are currently having a serious love affair with it. It’s not a new ingredient, in fact, it has been a staple in skin care and makeup for the last couple of decades. However technical innovation has changed it for the better.

Once described as “ineffective” by the medical profession as an ingredient that does little for anti-ageing due to its large molecule, recent advances in cosmetic manufacturing have resulted in lower molecular structure which can penetrate the skin and help stimulate your own collagen production.

With all that said, the more hyaluronic acid you put into your skin, the more youthful you’ll look—and now there are a number of ways to load up from lotions to serums to creams.

Hyaluronic acid is a bit of a misnomer. First, it’s not actually an acid. It’s a sugar. Also, it’s a sponge. Every molecule can hold 1,000 times its weight in water. But one thing about hyaluronic acid that’s absolutely true: It’s a skin-care wonder.

PEVONIA POWER REPAIR LINE

Any Pevonia fan will tell you this is the “go to” line for rehydrating the skin and smoothing away dehydration lines.

Abundant in Hyaluronic and Collagen, the serums and creams are like a moisture magnet, plumping and firming the skin.

“I’ve been using this product for 2 years now and can’t live without it! It’s wonderful… a little goes a long way, and it’s not greasy or heavy! Love, Love it!”

By RM

“Love it. The smell is amazing!”

By Jhalber

“This product is perfect for me. It is difficult for me to find a night-time moisturizer/anti-aging serum that fits my unique skin. I’m turning 44 this month, but still tend towards oily skin and occasional breakouts every once in a while. I’ve finally found something that gets the job done without feeling greasy nor clogging my pores and causing breakouts. It has a nice smell, too! It only takes a few small dabs dotted around your face and massaged in, so the small container actually lasts a good while – a good buy.”

By Mosaicgirl
