Your emotions play a large role in how you look and how others perceive you. But of all the emotions that can shred away your youth, the number one spot goes to stress.
Stress stimulates the hormone cortisol. When you’re stressed it taxes every organ in your body. It makes you eat different, making you crave junk food like chocolates and potato chips all the time. Other effects of stress are:
- Blood vessels become more fragile
- Skin cells don’t form as quickly
- Cell turnover eventually slows to half!
Anger can also affect how quickly your skin rejuvenates and heals. That pesky hormone, cortisol, taking center stage once more. It also limits the production of collagen which is the great fighter against aging.
However, we can’t stop how we feel. So when life gets the best of you, take some time for yourself. Get a facial, a massage, do whatever it is that calms and soothes you. It will subtract years from your face and add years to your life!
That old saying that laughter is the best medicine is true!
