What’s wreaking havoc with my skin?!
Summer has come and gone and maybe you’re noticing changes in your skin like facial brown spots, uneven tone, or dullness. Between COVID, mask wearing, smoky conditions, it’s no wonder stress may be having a lasting effect on your skin health. Here’s what you can do about it from Epionce:
During times of physical and/or emotional stress, aging of multiple organ systems, including skin and hair, is accelerated at the molecular and cellular level. Yet, it may not be visible until months later. Most of us have witnessed household members, friends, or acquaintances quickly age after a season of severe stress. Fortunately, sometimes these changes are reversible as the stressor is addressed and enough time for the body to heal has occurred.
Physical and emotional stress accelerates aging by multiple mechanisms of action, some of which include:
- Reduced Blood Flow: Nutrients are shifted away from skin, hair, and nails to the damaged organs inducing nutritional deficiency among the various cell types. These blood flow changes induce “graying” or sallowness of the skin with textural changes like roughness.
- Reduced Repair of the Skin: A damaged barrier allows increased UVL and pollutant penetration while increasing one’s risk of irritant and allergic contact reactions as well as local skin infections to bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeast.
- Exaggerated Inflammation: The normal protective inflammatory responses to any insult lasts longer. It is further activated by damaged, non-repaired skin.
A holistic approach to addressing these mechanisms of aging should include not only ways to moderate the stress level, but also a proper diet and topical skin care regimen. Consume a diet focused on anti-inflammatory foods dominated by a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables and high-quality protein. Oral supplements such as quercetin and niacinamide can be helpful as well.
The foundation of the Epionce product line is to address a damaged skin barrier and inflammation while re-balancing skin immunity. Many products are clinically proven to address multiple signs of skin aging.
