Can Stress Make You Ugly?

| by The Woodhouse Day Spa, under Wellness

When you are stressed, you can feel it, and others can see it. But does stress really have a noticeable effect on your appearance overtime? It's known fact that chronic stress has a detrimental effect on the immune system, and can open the door to mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression. But does being under a copious amount of stress have a noticeable effect on your appearance? Recent studies have proven the answer to this to be yes.

When you are stressed, your cortisol levels rise, this causes more oil production on  your skin which can cause acne, as well as a greater chance of developing wrinkles. If you're feeling stressed, the best way to combat it having an effect on your appearance is to get either an Orlando facial or massage. Not only will the products we use benefit your skin and eliminate the symptoms, but the decrease in stress will help to naturally eliminate the problem as well.

If you are particularly worried about your appearance due to recent stress issues, it's probably a good idea to try to relax. Studies show that women who have less cortisol in their bodies are found to be more attractive to the opposite sex. Stress is something that everyone has to face, but that doesn't mean that you have to let it take control of your life and your appearance. Give your body and your mind a break and enjoy a stress free day at The Woodhouse Spa.
