When you do not take proper care of your skin or adopt an unhealthy lifestyle, it can take a toll on your skin. Here is all that you need to know about skin fatigue:
Signs of skin fatigue
When under stress your skin starts to appear dull, dry, and inflamed. You may also notice dark circles and fine lines under the eyes and prominent stress lines on your forehead.
Causes of skin fatigue
Skin fatigue is often caused by stressful lifestyle factors, such as the lack of good quality sleep, an unhealthy diet, excessive smoking and alcohol, or poor environmental conditions like pollution. Over time, these factors cause your skin’s barriers to break down, resulting in a noticeable difference in your skin where it feels like it’s aging more rapidly.
Solutions for skin fatigue
Skin fatigue is reversible with the right changes made to your lifestyle!
Mindful lifestyle improvements
Take time to practice self-care and wind down after a busy day at work. This can be as simple as practising the right habits to get good quality sleep, and being mindful of the types of food you are consuming.
Choose your skin products wisely
Check your skincare products to see if they contain some of these ingredients your skin would love: antioxidants (for anti-inflammatory & anti-aging benefits), retinol (to speed up cell renewal and refine large pores), l-ascorbic acid (aka Vitamin C, to reduce UV ray damage), resveratrol (to improve fine lines, wrinkles and skin elasticity), niacinamide (to minimise appearance of pores) and hyaluronic acid (to boost hydration).
Wear a bright lipstick
Applying your favourite bright and bold lipstick would bring the attention towards your lips and brighten your overall look. Just like a pick-me-up, colors have the power to boost our emotional and mental state too!
What if there is another way?
While a good skincare routine is important, seeking aesthetic treatments helps to complement your routine to achieve a more glowy and youthful look. Minimally-invasive treatments like the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can actually hydrate deeper than skincare.
