Did you know that your mental health affects your skin/body? As important as it is to take good care of your skin, using the appropriate skincare products for your specific skin type, there are other things that fall into that equation.
The more stressed out you are, the more strain there will be on your physical health. It’s always important to make sure your stress levels are not high. Of course, with everything going on around us, especially these days, it’s hard to do that. But worry not! There are simple things you can do to help with that.
Have you checked out our Areej collection? Some of the scents they provide decrease your stress levels and give you a clearer mind. Soothing scents, in general, do that, like mint and lavender, for example!
We’ve talked before about the foods that help/harm your skin based on your skin type, but that’s not all, ladies!
It’s also very very important to make sure your diet is balanced and healthy and that your mealtimes are close to a routine so that your body is always calmer and healthier. Make sure that all your meals are balanced with all the nutrients your body needs, and that the food is good for you. Fast food is definitely not a good choice!
Another thing that affects your mental health is your sleep schedule! I know that while we’re staying at home, our sleep tends to flip a little and we end up sleeping too late sometimes. But it’s important to remember that to replenish your health and your energy you need to get decent sleep hours between 7 pm and 6 am! This makes your mood a lot more stable and it refreshes your skin, giving you a healthier mind and a healthier body!
It’s also important to remember to do things that make you happy, no matter how small they are. If you have a hobby or a certain activity that makes you feel good about yourself, make sure to make some time for that! It doesn’t have to be every day, but at least twice or three times a week. Work can become very stressful and everyone needs to find a way to blow off some steam. The happier you are, the happier your skin will be!
