So you probably have read a lot about stress.
There is no doubt that stress is not good for us, with high levels of cortisol being linked to numerous health issues including heart disease, auto-immune diseases, weight gain and diabetes.
Stress has a dehydrating effect on skin because when you’re under stress, the body takes blood flow away from peripheral organs – such as skin – to provide muscles with energy, order to facilitate the flight, fight or freeze response
It also reduces the skin’s own protective barrier made of healthy oils known as lipids, causing them to evaporate. This rich, moist barrier is hard to replace, which often means that those who experience high levels of stress, also experience dry skin issues.
There has been a lot of research and talk about the impact of stress on premature aging, and the impact stress has on our Telomeres.
Telomeres are the protective caps at the end of cell chromosomes. These protective caps, like the plastic tips on the end of shoelaces are an essential part of our human cells and affects how our cells age. Without the coating, shoelaces become frayed until they can no longer do their job, just as without telomeres, DNA strands become damaged and our cells can’t do their job.
It is believed that stress has an effect on the shortening of these telomeres, which contribute to damaging our cells and skin replenishment.
That’s why Tapping is not only essential for reducing stress and anxiety – but also helps you LOOK younger!
Tapping has been proven to lower cortisol levels and ultimately our stress and that’s a good thing to keep us looking good!
