Ahhhh. My skin is so bad!!
I hear this so often I can’t begin to tell you! And do you know what? If your stressing out about having bad skin, your actually making the problem a lot worse.
Stress releases a hormone called Cortisol into your body that has a horrendous affect on your skin! Without getting too technical, excess cortisol triggers the skin to overproduce oil, which leads to spotty breakouts or acne flare ups.
Follow this emergency ABC for Skin breakouts.
A: APPLY a layer of organic natural yoghurt or if you prefer honey, all over the face avoiding the eyes.
B: BREATHE. Begin to take longer, deeper breaths, in and out through your nose.
C: CHILL OUT. Lie down, close your eyes, and continue to breath deeply. Do this for at least 10-15 minutes. Then rinse off facemask.
This simple routine will switch off the production of Cortisol, and allow the mind, body and skin to de-stress and heal.
