We live in a super fast world, and it’s not too much of a surprise to hear that the pressures, stresses, and strains of modern living have a significant impact. Not only does it increase our chances of getting ill - in mind and body - but it can also impact the way we look and feel about ourselves.
If you are worried about stress lines, dark circles under your eyes, or looking and feeling exhausted all the time, perhaps it’s time to seek out more relaxation - there are some incredible benefits of taking it easy, and we’re going to explore some of the best of them right now.
Say goodbye to colds.
Working hard all the time with no periods of downtime lowers your body’s resistance to bugs and illnesses. So, if you are tired of picking up colds and flu all the time, it might well be due to chronic stress. A little rest and relaxation are thought to be the cure, as it improves your chances of fighting off inflammation. That means no more puffy and red eyes, runny noses, hacking coughs and throat irritation. And who doesn’t look better without any of those annoying issues?
Say hello to lighter moods.
Chronic stress and overworking can also kill your brain cells, and even stop your brain from creating new ones. When this happens to your body, your chances of losing your appetite, and feeling sad and hopeless, the symptoms of depression, increase by a significant amount. All that stress and worry will ultimately start showing on your face in the form of lines, wrinkles, tension, and more.
So, we’ve already established that overworking can lead to stress, which is the result of an increase of Cortisol in the body. Cortisol doesn’t just cause you feel miserable, it also makes you crave sugary, fatty, and unhealthy foods. So, although we are always told to keep active, you still need to ensure you have some downtime. Without it, you are more likely to reach for the junk food on a regular basis.
If you’ve been needing an excuse to visit your local spa services, here it is: relaxing activities like getting a massage have incredible benefits for your body, including the skin and hair. Massage and other spa treatments help you improve your circulation, which results in giving your skin and hair vitality and a healthy glow. Massage even promotes hair growth and can stop your scalp from getting dry, itchy or developing dandruff. You’ll get a better night’s sleep, too!
If you suffer from acne and breakouts, it could be because you are working too hard. Stress ramps up the production of oil produced by your skin, which ultimately ends in clogged pores and acne issues. Finding time to relax helps your body rejuvenate itself properly, balance out its oil production, and reduce the impact and amount of the breakouts you are experiencing.
So, if you want to improve your appearance naturall, add a little rest and relaxation into your beauty regimen.
