De-stress this summer for healthy, beautiful skin

Get Glowing Skin this Summer from Skin & Vein Institute, CA

We encourage you to truly relax this summer – for the health and beauty of your skin! The American Academy of Dermatology acknowledges a growing body of research, linking stress to chronic inflammatory conditions like psoriasis and rosacea.

Stressed-out? It shows (on your skin!)

Your skin’s nerve endings release chemicals or neuropeptides as the first line of defense against infection and trauma. But they can also cause discomfort – tingling, sensitivity, itching. This helps explain why acne, fever blisters, or hives flare or worsen before a big test or work presentation. Your partners in skin health will pamper you! Our customized skin care and dermatologic therapies are best combined with stress management tactics – as great for body as they are for mind and spirit.

  • Meditation, tai chi, yoga, or the physical activity of your choice can all be great stress-clearers and, possibly, skin-clearers!
  • Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Did you know stress can make your skin more permeable and reactive to “outside influences,” such as irritants and allergens? Products recommended by Dr. Lloyd help maintain your skin barrier so it functions at its best, protecting you from irritants that can penetrate the skin and make acne more inflamed or rosacea redder.

Skin also produces feel-good chemicals called beta-endorphins in response to broad-spectrum natural light. Your skin still absorbs these “happy rays” even with your broad spectrum sunscreen since sunscreen only filters the ultraviolet rays. Therefore, when wearing your sunscreen and enjoying life you’re getting the best of both worlds. Psychologically, the sun is associated with a sunny outlook. Think about it, the warmth of the sun on your skin is relaxing and brings a break from everyday demands. We canot stress enough to enjoy the sun responsibly – slather on broad-spectrum UVA-UVB sunscreen! Want more healthy tips?
