The past few months that I’ve been away have been the absolutely worst. I had barely 3 hours sleep a day. For someone who stress messes up her skin, you can imagine what I’ve been looking like.
Enough about me, let’s talk about… you (in Joe Goldberg’s voice).
We’ve all had stressful weeks or months. You’re so caught up with work or school, you forget to take care of your skin. You miss a day, 2 or 4, till you don’t care anymore.
Or maybe you still do your skincare routine but it seems not to work , you’re at that resistant state. You feel as though your skin simply doesn’t care.
So let me tell you about how I managed to cope with my stress and my skincare:
Don’t Stress about it
A key part of skin care is knowing what triggers your acne. In this case, it’s stress. Removing the trigger would make things easier but sometimes you can’t remove the trigger. You need to get that deal, you need to pass that examination. You can’t just get rid of stress. So just give in. Let your skin process the stress. It’s only for a while.
How can you keep up a skin care routine when your skin keeps getting worse? Yes, I know it’s hard but it will definitely pay off.
Do not use too many products
Your skin is going through a hard time. It’s really not in your best interest to use 10 products all at once. Keep your skin care simple and be consistent.
Drink lots and lots of water
Water is life, bestie. It’s not just great for your skin, it’s perfect for coping with your stress. It’s a win win, trust me.
Just Do you
Skin care is individualized care. Know what works for you and just do you.
Be kind to your skin
Pick a mirror, tell yourself that your skin will be fine when your stress is all over and it’s only a matter of time.
Here are some questions for you:
Have you been stressed lately?
How did you cope with your stress?
Does Stress affect your skin or are you God’s favorite?
Can you tell me about a time you had the worst stress induced break out?
Did you miss me while I was away? 🙈
