Have you heard of the brain-beauty connection? Research has long established a relationship between a person’s attitude and their overall health. But did you know that having a positive attitude may help you have better-looking skin, too?
It makes sense. The more stressed you are, the faster you age, according to leading skin research. Stress raises your cortisol and adrenaline levels which, in turn, causes inflammation, resulting in a loss of collagen and hydration, both of which are vital to your skin’s appearance.
Other research reveals that exceptional agers (women who look 10 or more years younger than their actual age), are more likely to have a positive attitude. You may be thinking, “Of course they’re happy — they look amazing!” But researchers think a more likely explanation is the reverse scenario: exceptional agers look amazing because they feel amazing.
Studies have shown that having a positive attitude can improve pretty much everything about you — your overall well-being — and is generally associated with healthier behaviors. In other words, when you feel good about yourself, you’re more inclined to take better care of yourself.
Are you inspired to inject more positivity into your life (and, consequently, enjoy better-looking skin)? Here are a few simple tips:
Make self-care a top priority.
The top two complexion offenders are sun and stress. Genetics are responsible for about 20 percent of your skin’s aging, while 80 percent of your skin’s appearance can be attributed to lifestyle factors, which you control. In a nutshell, wear sunscreen daily and do whatever you can to keep your stress levels under control! Breathing exercises, yoga, short walks at work, unplugging from technology, petting your dog. You know what to do!
Adopt a skin care routine.
You can also lower your skin’s stress levels with replenishing and revitalizing skin care ingredients. Years of scientific research goes into discovering which formulations can help to reveal your best-looking skin at every age. Skin professionals, such as aestheticians, dermatologists, and plastic surgeons are trained to help you choose the ideal skin care regimen that meets your unique needs and goals. Plus, taking care of your skin with scientifically researched and results-driven products promotes a feeling of accomplishment, which perpetuates your positive outlook on life. And so the cycle of positivity goes…
