ZO Complexion Clarifying Serum: Your Stress Awareness Month Saviour

If you’re feeling stressed out, then April is dedicated to you and your wellness. Since 1992, April has been ‘Stress Awareness Month’, labelled as such to raise awareness of the modern-day stress epidemic that we all face. Our lifestyles have changed drastically over the years, leaving many of us feeling more stressed than we know how to manage. The result? Well, it shows in our skin.

How does stress really affect the skin?

Your skincare routine plays a vital role in helping to visually manage stress and ensure that it doesn’t contribute too heavily to our complexion.

Studies show that both acute and chronic stress can exert negative effects on overall skin wellness, as well as aggravate a number of skin conditions, including psoriasis, eczema, and acne.

Psychological stress can also disrupt our epidermal barrier. If this top layer of the skin becomes irritated then its ability to lock in moisture, fight off harmful microbes and resist the affect of wounds can all become compromised.

Even the simplest of stress reactions such as excessive perspiration can have a negative impact on our skin, for example by increasing congestion and worsening acne flares.

And it doesn’t stop there, stress impacts our hair growth too.

The negative effects of stress have also been demonstrated in hair. Psychological stress particularly inhibits the hair growth phase, reducing your follicle’s ability to regrow and as a result leading to thinning hair.

Stress has also been linked to hair greying due to the depletion of pigment-producing stem cells that can be caused by things like sleep deprivation.

Thankfully, we’ve got something to help you through Stress Awareness Month!

It’s not all bad news. The impact stress can have on our skin only adds weight to the importance of a good skincare routine – just in case you needed any more reasons to prioritise! We are proud to partner with ZO Skin Health to offer our patients only the very best in skincare solutions.

When it comes to stress, your skin saviour has to be the Complexion Clarifying Serum.
