The Best Herbal Relaxants for Stress and Skin

The Best Herbal Relaxants for Stress and Skin

Ever feel like this?  Loaded question, I know!  

But little do many know that if stress is balanced with relaxation, then its negative effects may be diminished and a balance can be achieved. Really! 

And if a balance is not achieved, stress affects our skin in a variety of ways.

  • Adrenaline redirects blood away from the skin and sends it to the muscles instead. This is why in times of relentless stress the skin becomes pale and "washed out".
  • Anger, irritability, excitement and frustration unleash chemicals, which stimulate the sebaceous glands into pouring out more oil. The excess sebum can block the pores and encourage the pimples to form. This is why we tend to break out in spots on the eve of an important occasion.
  • Chronic stress makes muscles tense up and become stiff. This prevents the flow of blood bringing enough oxygen and vital nutrients to the skin. Tension also is responsible for slowing the swift removal of wastes from the underlying tissue. Stressed skin lacks vitality and looks congested.
  • Strain slows down the rate of cell turnover so the fresh epidermal cells take longer to reach the skin surface and much of their moisture has disappeared. Under constant pressure, the skin looks dull.
  • Continuous stress increases cortisone secretion, which suppresses the body's natural immunity. The skin's defense breaks down and allows the skin to be irritated by outside chemicals and pollutants.
  • Stress shatters serenity and fuels self-doubt. It is important to balance, regulate and compose your inner body environment, which in turn expresses itself on the surface of the skin.

Herbal Acne Treatments

Acne is a prevalent skin disorder affecting nearly 17 million people. Over-production of oil plugs pores and causes pimples. It is common to see acne on the face, back, shoulders, arms and chest. Effective over-the-counter treatments are numerous, but many can cause adverse side effects, such as dryness, redness and itching. Herbal treatments can be as effective as the commercial products, but may cause fewer side effects.

There are several reasons why herbal acne treatments are effective. In general, this kind of natural acne treatment uses the purest ingredients extracted from various plants to cure the problem at its very source. Herbal treatments are made with natural elements that have been proven by experts over centuries to heal skin problems like acne and help in promoting a healthy clear complexion. Furthermore, each type of herbal acne treatment has its own specific reason why it gives effective changes.

First, herbal capsules have safe and natural ingredients that target the inner source of acne and subsequently take away the said cause. In addition, these capsules work to promote a clear skin tone from the inside. This type of natural acne medication is taken orally for several weeks in order for it to show full results.

Second, herbal cleansers take away debris, dirt, and excess oils acquired from daily outdoor and indoor activities. They provide relief from painful inflammation caused by acne and retain the softness and smoothness of skin. Aside from these, herbal cleansers prevent causative organisms from building up. This kind of treatment is used with warm water as a daily facial wash which can be done once or twice a day.

The third type of herbal treatment is the topical gel. It has healing nutrients that penetrate skin and it provides antibacterial activity that quells organisms that initiate the appearance of acne. Herbal gels also reduce swelling, scarring, and redness by modulating the inflammatory reaction of the skin. This topical medication can be applied sparingly on the thoroughly dried skin after the facial wash.
