These two things contribute to our overall health and this shows in the state of our skin. When we are stressed we often suffer from ‘breakouts’ due to the chemicals that stress induces in our bodies. This is often reflected in our sleep patterns which can become interrupted and difficult to get back on track. These two things either separately or together can have a huge impact on the state of our skin. Finding methods of relaxation can help us achieve a better sense of balance. If you have an ongoing issue with sleep and stress it is advisable to seek help from your GP. It could well be something easy to resolve and your skin will thank you for it.

Finding ways to be good to ourselves will be reflected both on the inside and on the outside. It is important that we look after our minds and bodies as the feel good factor we feel as a result will be passed on to friends and family. They will thank you for it.
