Antioxidants and your Skin

Updated on April 25, 2016

Lets look at Stress.

Stress is a big reason why what we put in our body may not be a good thing. Worries about work might cause us to call a friend while munching on a bag of potato chips and eating the whole bag while downing a cola, not even diet, along with a side of fries.

What does this have to do with my skin? Well, a lot! For one thing your not even hungry. Eating because your worried is never a good thing. Because what your eating is going to cause your body to heat up just from the very act of digestion thus inducing oil in your skin,which by the way it already does just because your alive and your heart is beating, so your skin is getting over loaded so low and behold you have zits almost over night!

There are ways to stop or at least do something about your worries and emotions which the two of these things work hand in hand to make you feel miserable..


Stress less Snacks

Instead of reaching for a whole tub of your favorite ice cream, and I'm talking REAL ice cream not the light version, you might consider fruit or almonds, blueberries to mention a few. These foods are good sources of antioxidants and far better on your overall emotional state which, believe it or not can take a toll on your skin and not just your face. Tomatoes and carrots are also high in antioxidants to help your immune system.

Give yourself some down time.

We all need down time. Easier said than done, non the less, your always better for it. Try to find at least 30 minutes for yourself. While your having your down time try not to think about the very things that are stressful to you. No bringing your notebook or projects or phone. That's not the idea behind down time. Do bring your face masks, good book, candles, lotions, creams, latte and just relax for that short amount of time or longer. Have some spa time. You will be amazed at the change in your skin, But you have to make the time.

Fluid intake.

Last but not least. Drink plenty of water. Soda, alcohol, coffee although maybe relaxing at times have other things in them that are not designed to really hydrate your body. Water and mineral water with a slice of lime can be quite refreshing and there's no after taste so it won't stay with you for the rest of the day. After all, our bodies are 95% water which stands to reason why we cannot live without it. I'm not saying you shouldn't drink soda and coffee. But they are not the best thing for you when you need hydration on a daily basis. So relax and enjoy yourself . Stay happy!
