Raise your hand if you've ever looked in the mirror after a stressful week and wondered who replaced your face with a crumpled-up piece of paper.
Yep, we've all been there.
A bad day at work? Stress. Too tired to cook after a long day? Stress. Netflix account expired? “INSTANT STRESS!”
In our current lifestyle, stress is absolutely inevitable. Who knew that a lifetime of worrying and anxiety could leave such a lasting impression on our faces? I mean, those lines between our eyebrows and deep forehead wrinkles are like a permanent reminder of every stressful situation we've ever been in.
Don’t you wonder if you can just say goodbye to those stress lines, altogether like – “Pretty please?!”
Stress lines and wrinkles generally result from multiple skin aging issues – commonly known as intrinsic and extrinsic factors. As we age, our body produces a lesser amount of collagen and elastin. On the other hand, external factors like sun exposure, smoking, or chronic stress can cause wrinkles to develop over time.
In this blog post, we'll dive into the world of “Mind-Skin” connection and share some surprising ways to keep stress wrinkles at bay with SEREKO’s Neurocalm(s)™ infused products.
1). An overview of Stress Wrinkles -
If you are someone, who wears their emotions on the face; extreme stress can lead to certain expressions that result in fine lines and wrinkles. While we cannot control our DNA and life experiences, we can make sure that our mind is in a calmer and less anxious state to prevent more serious skin issues in the long run. Sereko’s Calming Gel Pen is like that “deep breath” which you need during stressful times. Apart from being extremely handy and travel-friendly for regular usage, it prevents under-eye wrinkles and reduces internal stressors. Apply as frequently as required, on your temples, wrists, and forehead to obtain maximum results.
2). How to get rid of Stress Wrinkles?
Repeated muscle movements like furrowing and raising your eyebrows can cause wrinkles on the forehead. To eliminate them altogether is an impossible task, just how people tell you to “stop stressing out” the minute you talk about something worrying. However, getting a hold of yourself on a regular basis prepares you to “RESPOND” instead of “REACTING” during stressful situations. Sereko’s SUPER GLOW KIT is enriched with Vitamin C, Neurocalm(I)™, and other mind-relaxing ingredients that heals oxidative stress and imparts a radiant glow to the skin. Experience a drastic improvement in your overall mental state within 2 weeks of consumption.
3). What causes Stress Wrinkles?
Stress can arise from various sources such as work, relationships, finances, and surroundings. However, the underlying scientific explanation for this can be summarized in one word, i.e., “Telomeres,” as per Friedman. Telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA which protects our chromosomes. When they shorten in length to a certain point, they can no longer replicate. This is when a person starts to show several signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. Individuals who suffer from mental disorders like depression, anxiety, or trauma have shorter Telomeres. Research has found that psychological stress makes an individual susceptible to multiple signs of aging. Sereko’s Clarifying Moisturizer contains Neurocalm(s)™ which when incorporated into your daily skincare routine combats everyday stressors while imparting a radiant glow to the skin.
4). Stress Wrinkles vs Age Wrinkles –
With age, one loses collagen production in the skin. Elasticity and firmness are reduced which causes the skin to sag and wrinkle. Although we can’t shut down aging completely it is possible to reduce the signs with skincare and lifestyle changes. Incorporating products that contain Retinol in your skincare routine, staying hydrated, eating clean, and leading an active lifestyle can drastically reduce multiple signs of aging over time.
Stress, on the other hand not only affects one’s mental and emotional well-being but also takes a toll on their physical appearance. If you are in your thirties or above and facing prolonged psychological stress, you may notice a combination of age and stress-related wrinkles, such as hyperpigmentation and under-eye circles, more prominently. Use Sereko’s Clarifying Serum which contains 15+ botanical active ingredients and Retinol to experience 70% reduction in Stress Hormones within 2 hours of application.
