Life can be stressful and you may not know it, but the wear and tear of daily life are showing on your face. We all wear stress as wrinkles, sagging skin and dark circles, but there are a few easy things you can do to take your blood pressure down and relax!
Here are just a few easy tips to take a load off and learn to relax. After all, it’s for the health of your skin!
Do A Quick Meditation
Meditating doesn’t need to be difficult or time-consuming. In fact, experts agree that even 10 minutes a day of focusing on your breath can have some serious health benefits for your body and mind. You don’t need much to get started meditating but for those who don’t know where to start, you can find lots of different guided meditations on youtube.
Find a comfortable chair or spot on the floor. Sit up with your back straight and your hands and shoulders falling gently to your side or in your lap. Practice paying attention to your breath, in and out, in and out. This will not only relax your muscles but your face as well as you breathe and collect your thoughts.
Go For A Run
Running is a great way to stay healthy and get some stress out. Even just 15 minutes will help clear your head and get your heart rate up, which will cause blood to flow to your skin and create a natural glow. Running is also great for heart health and keeping your body mobile and in shape.
Throw on your favorite playlist or podcast and hit the pavement. If you suffer from any chronic skin conditions like eczema or acne, running can actually help repair these conditions and improve the overall health of your skin. Getting your body and skin healthy with a quick run has never been easier!
Dance It Out
There is a reason why music makes us feel so good…it gets us moving and grooving to the rhythm in no time! Whether your stress is from work, family, or something else entirely, you can’t underestimate how mood-changing it can be to dance it out to your favorite tracks.
Pick a few songs that remind you of one of the happiest times in your life. It can be a wedding song, your favorite group from college or even the newest pop hits. Just make sure that it’s something with enough beat to dance to and watch your stress and worries melt away!
