Our bodies go through many ups and downs, much like our emotions. If you get the random breakout or even occasional suspicious rash, there are skincare disruptors that can be to blame. If this is you, don’t be alarmed because many of us experience the same issues.
While you may feel annoyed or even embarrassed when your skin is acting out, this may not be as “out of the blue” as you may think since your skin is a reactive organ. Here are five skincare disruptors and ways you can help calm things down:
Using the Wrong Skincare
If you’re using the wrong skincare products for your body and skin type, you’re more likely to break out into a rash or experience acne breakouts. You may want to double check if your skin care products contain toxic chemicals like parabens that can lead to clogged pores and more importantly be harmful to your body and skin.
To prevent further harm and damage to your body and skin, we recommend using skincare brands like Eminence Organic Skin Care, which are 100% natural and free from parabens, toxins, and animal by-products. It’s never too early or too late to make a positive change for yourself and the environment.
Not everyone can stick to a strict diet or completely part ways with their favorite junk foods, but if you’ve suddenly upped your intake of sugars, dairy, and fatty foods, your body may be struggling to process it all. Just remember, everything in moderation! We all have our occasional binge out moments, but if your skin is reacting, you may want to throw in some healthy options. After all, it’s important to feed your body with essential vitamins and minerals to maintain your overall well-being.
If you have a sweet tooth, swap out your favorite sugar treats for a healthy smoothie or even dark chocolate (the higher percentage of cocoa, the better). If you’re more of a savory person, try some oven-baked kale chips or a handful of roasted almonds.
Your skin may be acting out due to seasonal change. During the cold season, some people may experience dry skin that can often lead to red rashes and in worse case scenarios, eczema. Alternatively, during the hot season, you’re more prone to break out because oil production kicks into overdrive.
While the effect of seasonal changes to the body and skin may vary from person to person, it’s always good to anticipate any changes by adjusting your daily skincare regimen.
Stress and Pressure
Let’s face it you’re just stressed out! When you are physically, mentally, and emotionally drained, your body produces stress hormones, making your body more sensitive and reactive, leading to problematic skin.
Although people deal with stress in different ways, we recommend indulging in something that you enjoy or even love doing, as it will help decrease your stress levels. Whether that be taking a yoga class, going for a drive, or having a girls (or guys) night out, do something that makes you happy. More importantly, get at least eight hours of sleep. Getting the right amount of sleep can help you decrease your stress levels, which will help keep your skin calm.
Your Pillow Case
If you haven’t changed your pillowcases recently, you may want to, as the oils from your hair and face get transferred directly to your pillow. These oil build-ups can lead to clogged pores that can cause your skin to break out.
We recommend washing your pillowcases every few days to avoid potential pimples and facial acne. The cleaner the sheets, the better the sleep! Besides, we all deserve our beauty rest.
While there may be other factors that are causing your skin to react, we hope we’ve provided enough insight and ways on how to tackle these given skin disruptors!
