That old saying that laughter is the best medicine is true! Your emotions play a large role in how you look and how others see you.
Of all the emotions that rip our youth to shreds, stress ranks at the very top.
Why? Stress stimulates the hormone cortisol. When you’re stressed it taxes every organ in your body.
– Blood vessels become more fragile
– Skin cells don’t form as quickly
– Cell turnover eventually slows to half!
Stress also causes you to eat differently. Do you drink less water? Crave chocolate or potato chips all the time?
Anger can also affect how quickly your skin rejuvenates and heals. Again, that pesky hormone, cortisol, takes center stage.
It limits the production of collagen, that great anti-ager, and you certainly don’t want that!
None of us can hide out from life. That’s why self-care is so crucial. Get a facial, a massage, ride a bike, whatever it is that calms and soothes you.
It will subtract years from your face and add years to your life!
