What's New at Faces by Vicki   
  Stress...and your Skin 
As the song goes, "it's the hap-hapiest time of the year!" Perhaps that's true after the Christmas stockings are hung and Menorah Candles are lit, we can finally take a breath and relax a bit. In the meantime, along with the normal responsibilities and work, there is a little holiday madness to deal with.  All this may create skin problems for even those with the best of skin.  There are many skin conditions that stem directly from stress.  Yes...stress definitely has an effect on the way your skin looks and its ability to repair

The mind and skin are intrinsically connected, There are lot of nerve endings which are connected to the skin,
Take acne, for example. When you are stressed, your body releases hormones including cortisol, which may increase the skin's oil production, making you prone to pimples. Autoimmune disorders of the skin such as  eczema, psoriasis.and cold sores are greatly triggered by stress.  Stress even reduces the lipid barrier on the skin, allowing fluids to evaporate and leading to dry and dull skin.

Here are a few antidotes to help alleviate stressed skin.
1.  Fill a bath with relaxing essential oils and soak.
2.  Increase your exercise regiment or take-up a Yoga class.
3.  Deep breathing: Exchanging oxygen for outgoing carbon dioxide can slow the heartbeat and lower or stabilize blood pressure.
4. Vitamin C: Allows the body to quickly clear out cortisol, a primary stress hormone that increases sugars in the bloodstream.   Vitamin C Serum
5. Essential Oils: Ylang Ylang: releases anger and frustration; Chamomile: calming, soothing, Frankincense: relaxing and aromatic, Rose: the queen of oils to help with all stress issues  Rose H2O Spray.

I hope that these tips and suggestions help to make this holiday season, "The Hap-Happiest Time of the Year" for you and your family.
