STRESS: THE NEW SKIN AGING CONCERN
The skin is directly connected to the central nervous system and the circulatory system. For this reason, any alteration in our organism has a negative impact on its appearance and on the health of the skin.
States of anxiety and nervousness, as well as exposure to external agents (wind, cold, sun, pollution…) cause hormonal imbalances and weaken our immune system, lowering skin defenses, causing inflammatory processes and stimulating the production of hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol.

What consequences does stress have on the skin?
An increased cortisol secretion allows us to cope with stress and the demands of the day, as well as increasing the availability of energy. But, while it is necessary for survival, it can also bring health problems, as high cortisol secretion can cause short-term skin problems such as dermatitis, acne and can even worsen pre-existing conditions such as psoriasis or rosacea.
In the long term, this exposure to cortisol will accelerate the aging of the skin since it manages to break down the collagen at a much faster rate than it naturally occurs, resulting in the early appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
In addition, anxiety also causes hyaluronic acid to be destroyed and damages cellular DNA, specifically affecting the part responsible for controlling cell aging.
In recent years, stress has become the main concern of skin aging, replacing exposure to UV rays or pollution. This concern is more present in younger generations/under 40 (Source: Mintel) and that is the reason why, now more than ever, we need to include in our beauty routine anti-stress skincare products that prevent and correct its effects.
