Whatever your circumstances are, this pandemic will be affecting you - and quite probably your skin too. Read on to learn more about how stress messes with your skin and creates an "inflammatory cascade".
But first - the good news.
Do these 3 things without spending a cent - and your skin will love you for it.
1. Drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated is key. Stress can dry your skin out.
2. Avoid over heating. Keep showers or baths warm, not hot. As winter approaches here, dress up warm but don't wear too many layers.
3. Get enough sleep. Lack of sleep can boost cortisol levels. It's a vicious cycle....
When we're stressed our "fight or flight" response kicks in. Our levels of hormones cortisol and adrenaline skyrocket. Our digestion in the gut slows down, affecting gut bacteria. Our skin suffers....

Staying safe and well
- keep washing hands thoroughly with 'soap'. Soap actually makes coronavirus ineffective. It's more than just good hygiene, it will save lives.
- keep hands well moisturized. This will help prevent hands and fingers cracking (and limit potential infections).
- stressful times can trigger skin conditions and flare ups. Use High Factor Peony Root Skin Remedy frequently and early to help prevent any flareups.
