Why stress therapy for skin matters
Stress causes the brain to release the hormone cortisol, which at the right levels can actually help us deal emotionally with stress and boost mental clarity. However, in too high doses for too long, cortisol has damaging effects on both our mental wellbeing and skin. Connected via intriguing pathways, the brain, body and skin are more closely connected than we many of us might be aware of.
The action of cortisol on skin is well studied, and – like us – you have surely at some point experienced stress-related acne or hyper-sensitivity. Cortisol affects the skin barrier, which means that skin’s ability to produce oil and trap juicy moisture inside while locking out pollution and irritants is weakened. To compensate, skin over-produces sebum, inviting acne-causing bacteria.
Cortisol is also known to inhibit the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen, as well as interfering with the cell regeneration process. The consequence of this is that skin becomes less hydrated and can look dry, flaky and red.
Acting as both a soothing stress therapist and personal security guard that protects skin from sabotaging free radicals, CBD is the best friend every modern skincare should include.
