In affairs to preventing coronavirus from spreading, we have put the risks of mental health on the backburner. Further, the narrow space, lack of social interaction, travel restrictions, and so on have disturbed our lives to infinity. In addition to this, stress is causing hormonal imbalances, which can damage your skin and hair.
Are you having acne, rashes, or hair thinning or falling? If yes, then we have an effective solution to this. Read on the blog to know the ways to stop stress from attacking your skin and hair.
- Follow your beauty routine:
Many people are still locked indoors and working from home. Well, that does not mean you need to skip or overlook your beauty routine. This habit can make your skin suffer from stress and anxiety.
A simple routine includes a night-time mask, daily cleanser, and some moisturiser; all of these can save your skin’s beauty. Plus, if you want to make a quick visit to the market or grocery store, then remember to apply sunscreen for your skin. No matter you are putting on your makeup or not, your face will glow more than ever.
- Nurture your hair too:
Though hair is a non-essential part (when it comes to survival), it can go off-balance due to stress. It can push your hair follicles to rest mode so that it fails to produce new hair. And through routine shampooing and all, the remaining hair falls. In addition to this, nurturing your hair can easily fall to the wayside.
So, put in warm and natural oil to your hair gently, comb your hair like before, and shampoo and condition, as per your routine. Additionally, if you have any plans to apply hair colour at home, then know how often you should colour your hair. Otherwise, chemicals will ruin your hair’s beauty.
- Cope up with skin breakouts:
Stress leaves a chemical response in your body, which makes your skin reactive and sensitive. Sometimes, this can also worsen your skin-related problems. You can further undergo redness and acne on your skin. Stress can also make you skip your daily skincare.
So, whenever you feel the explosion of skin breakouts, avoid exploitation, and start cleaning your face thrice a day. If you have dry skin, then stick to it two times a day; that too with a foaming face wash. In case your skin needs more care; then, add vitamin C foods in your diet to help combat loss.
- Eat healthy food:
Someone has said that beauty comes from inside. Yes, it is true! Your beauty has a lot to do with your diet plan. As many people are working from home, there must be a reduction in physical activities. It can cause your digestive system to work unpleasantly, leading to skin-related issues.
Hence, experts highly recommend eating healthy foods during this crisis. Most importantly, avoid having meals from outside and stay away from spicy and fried foods. You can either apply vitamin E to your skin or consume foods that are rich in it. That includes peanut butter, almonds, corn oil, and many more. Last but not least, drink lots of water to keep yourself hydrated all day long.
- Exercise has a connection with beauty:
Yes, it does have beauty benefits. The best way to get glowing skin, fewer wrinkles and healthy hair is to exercise daily. It helps you to stay calm and feel relaxed. Plus, it improves your blood circulation, promoting hair growth and preventing pore-clogging.
So, what should be your exercise plan? Put on your sports shoes and work upon a sweat. There are various YouTube videos that you can prefer. Also, some yoga poses can elevate your hair, which you can include.
Jot down your plan of action:
What you need to do is get a self-care plan. Simply put, it’s committing to and following a routine that will benefit vital parts of your body (skin and hair). Include the above ways in your self-care plan and prevent stress from affecting your skin and hair.
Furthermore, whenever any crisis arises, we always look at its negative side (its human tendency; we understand that!). But, move your eyes and mind to its positive side too. That is, you have all the time to reap the benefits of the habits (in this case, the above-listed ones). So, stay calm, stay healthy, and enjoy your beauty.
