So far everything has been fine. Sure, a little pimple here and there. Sure, I also see a few wrinkles when I get up in the morning. But what is suddenly going on with my skin? Redness, pimples or some kind of rash? Where does that suddenly come from?If your skin reacts, it can have different reasons. Let's take a look at the five most common ones:
Many skincare products are too strong and attack the skin. Cleansers in particular oftenstrip off too much of the skin's natural sebum. This leads to redness andirritation. Foam-based cleanser or milk is usually gentler to the skin andcleanses just as well as stronger alternatives. The same applies to skincare:Often substances are contained that simply do the skin no good - parabens, forexample. Or silicone - which makes the skin feel wonderfully soft and wellcared for - but in fact the skin can no longer breathe at all.
Are youstressed? Excited? Is something big on the horizon? Many people react(unfortunately) with rashes and pimples - mostly at a time when you canactually use it the least. Stress triggers chemical reactions in the body - forexample the production of cortisol. Cortisol increases the oil production ofthe cells - a perfect breeding ground for pimples 😉
What canyou do? Reduce stress. Not easy, of course. How about a lot of sleep? Thatshould help if you don't manage to reduce stress being awake.
Especially now when it's getting colder outside (and warmer inside in comparison), the skin often reacts strongly. It dries out - becomes "brittle", red, scratches. What can you do about it? Supply moisture and cream cream cream! But be careful with what (see point one 😉)
We'reprobably all familiar with that. The skin reacts to (a lot of) alcoholconsumption, sweets or other "bad" nutrition. Even if you have nopsychological stress - physical stress (e.g. due to bad sleep) influences yourbody in the same way. The stress hormones that develop can cause inflammatoryreactions in your whole body - also in the skin of course.
