The way you feel not just affects your inner body, mental health but also your skin. Yes, your skin has to do with your mood. Long lasting mood swings could have irreversible effects on your skin. There are lots of emotions we feel in our life and each one of them affects our skin. Time span of mood swings influences the extent of damage caused.
You must have heard, ‘Laughter is the Best Medicine’, this phrase has been apparently written in this context only. When you are in a cheerful mood, your skin smiles and glows, but when you are tensed, the entire turmoil going on inside you reflects on your skin. The roller coaster ride of emotions can be the cause of those wrinkles and dullness of your skin. Moods mess with skin.
Here are the Ways in Which your Mood Swings Affect your Skin:
Stress & Tension:
In today’s fast-paced life, stress and tension have taken the front seat in the lives of people. They are the main enemy of a healthy skin. When you are stressed, your body makes elevated levels of Cortisol which badly affects the facial skin cells by disturbing the pattern of blood flow, which results into early and quick skin changes, and packs your skin with wrinkles. The skin becomes dull, and at times causes eczema, acne, or psoriasis.
In the present era, people don’t think twice before getting upset or angry. It is like anger is always present on the tip of their nose. Anger is very bad for the skin as it impacts the facial muscles and slows down the healing process of the skin.
Depression is the main cause of spoiled or bad mood. There are so many people out there who are depressed but you couldn’t make out that it is the case with them. When a person is depressed, there are high chances that he won’t reveal it to the world and silently reach into a worse situation. There are countless reasons behind depression. It is a condition that produces high cortisol levels in the blood which results into early skin problems such as wrinkles, pigmentation, weight gain, and hair loss. This depression can suck out the glow from skin, making it dull and full of wrinkles.
Happiness is the key to a lot of problems. It is the positive key to the lock of healthy body. Happy people have healthy, glowing skin. You will always find that the ones who always stay positive and happy have glowing, vibrant skin. A cheerful mood is a boon for your skin tone. Happiness keeps wrinkles away from your skin.
We often come across this emotion, but never imagined its effect on our skin. The moment an individual feels afraid, his body produces adrenaline. Adrenaline production increases the speed of heart rate, blood starts flowing to the huge power muscles of the body at a high speed, resulting into high blood pressure. Fear makes a person sweat because adrenaline brings blood to the surface of the skin, resulting into opening of the pores and thus, allows sweat pour out. Sweat causes many skin problems.
