Our New Year Resolution here at The Face Place is to be more present. To resist the urge to rush through life. Become more in the moment. Less stressed.
Did you know that stress has a direct affect on your skin? Have you ever noticed that you break out more when you are stressed? This is because stress causes your body to release stress hormones including cortisol, which may increase the skin's oil production. Oily skin is more prone to acne and other skin problems.
There is no way to avoid stress completely, but here are some tips to practice for 2018:
- Make gratitude part of your daily routine - Gratitude is the very simple act of expressing thanks for the things you have in your life.
- Work on breathing - focusing on your breathing helps you to be present so you can exist in the here and now.
- Increase your awareness - Engage all of your senses to become more aware during routine activities.
Happy New Years to all!
We hope you have an incredible 2018: a year filled with happiness, joy, enjoying each moment, and feeling beautiful in your skin!
