With warmer weather on the way and skin exposure an almost guarantee, many people are considering ways to make their skin appear healthy, moist and supple. While your skin may be on show more often in the summer months, it’s important to remember that your skin is the largest organ on your body and often the first to show signs of bad health. Keeping your skin healthy is a year round game, so read on to find out the best ways to get better skin.
4Keep stress under control
Stress takes a huge toll on almost every part of your body. From your joints to your organs to your skin, stress can wreak havoc on a body. In a study conducted at Stanford University, it was found that students in the midst of high stress exams suffered from severe acne breakouts while those without exams did not.
Stress increases the body’s production of cortisol, a hormone that makes skin oilier and decreases our body’s ability to fight off acne-causing bacteria. To keep stress under control and your skin happy, consider regular practice of stress-management techniques, such as deep breathing or yoga.
