Acne is a serious skin condition that needs to be treated. What makes it complicated is the fact that acne can be caused by a wide variety of factors, from poor hygiene, food allergies and insomnia to stress. One of the causes of acne is stress, especially chronic stress, or living in a long period of stress. I'll tell you how stress affects your skin and how to get rid of the stress acne.

Stress is a part of life and it is not possible to get rid of it completely. However, it is possible to cope better with stress and keep its level in the body as low as possible so that it does not endanger your health. This is something you need to be able to do for yourself or learn to do it.

Stress arises in order to be active and "awake" when we are in a dangerous situation or when we need to react quickly to something. The hormones cortisol and adrenaline emerge so that we can be active and quick, but they should not be constantly represented. These are stress hormones that, when present for a long time, cause chronic stress. This in turn brings out a number of diseases in the body, including acne and other skin problems.

Chronic stress needs to be addressed, it needs to be cured. No human is immune to stress. It's up to us how we deal with stress and how well we can help keep stress low.

To understand if you are suffering from chronic stress, analyze if you have these symptoms (or some of them):

- You have problems with overeating / underrating and prefer unhealthy foods.

- You are not in the mood to meet someone and socialize.

- You are constantly nervous and get upset easily.

- You’re moody and what other’s say often hurt you.

- You are afraid and expect bad things to happen.

- You sleep too little or want to sleep constantly.

- You have chest pain, blood pressure problems or your heart is beating too fast.

- Libido is very low.

- Constantly ill with various diseases.

- You are annoyed by things that shouldn't really irritate you.

- You have depression that cannot be resolved.

- You have problems concentrating and memory.

- You are constantly worried and upset.

- You feel that you have too many responsibilities that you cannot keep up with.

Spiritual message!

Spiritually, your body is signalling to itself that it needs help to cope with stress. If you have acne on your face, it is a spiritual message to you to help yourself. Your body invites you to heal, and therefore your routine, habits, and mind should be changed to release the stress that can no longer fit in your body. The stress that has grown over your head starts to come out of you through your body.

First step

Chronic stress slows down the normal functioning of the body, thus stopping the regeneration and renewal of skin cells, and thus their health suffers. Stress does not allow your body to recover and produce collagen, which is important for the beautiful appearance of your skin.

The first step you could take is to start eating plenty of vitamin C right away. It could be in any of your foods. Make sure it is always part of the menu and consume it as a dietary supplement. This vitamin is most needed by the body, and when you suffer from chronic stress, you consume it significantly more than a person who does not have chronic stress.

I recommend vitamin C from Acerola cherries because it’s 100% plant-based, or orange-based 100% plant-based gummies, which is comfortable to carry anywhere during the day and which is absorbed very well by the body. Also, Your Super superfood mix Forever Beautiful containing Acerola cherry helps to achieve radiant and healthy skin. In addition, vitamin C is found in other Your Super superfood mixes that are easy to add to your daily meals. You will find them HERE.

Vitamin C helps produce collagen, which in turn helps restore skin and improve acne marks. It is important to consume plenty of vitamin C to get the result quickly. It also helps to improve mood and fights the symptoms of chronic stress.

Step two

The skin needs hydration from the inside because chronic stress makes it dry and lifeless. Because stress prevents the skin from recovering and slows down the production of collagen, you need to restore the skin's moisture level. This is best done by moisturising the skin both inside and out.

From the inside, hydrate the skin with buckthorn oil and omega 3 fatty acid. Both help to make the skin beautiful, radiant, elastic and have a good complexion and prevent the formation of excessive oiliness. However, they also help prevent the skin from drying out excessively. 

In addition, I recommend consuming flaxseed oil, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. The right food helps the skin to recover and also relieve stress.

The right fatty acids also help reduce the stress symptoms I mentioned above.

If chronic stress has made the skin lifeless and dull, it must be moisturised from the outside with carrier oils. They help to instantly improve your complexion, helping you to be radiant. After a long time, they restore dry skin and make it silky soft.

Step three

Bring natural antidepressants, such as rhodiola, which has a great effect on hormonal health. Rhodiola is good alternative medicine for chronic stress acne that could be used for at least half a year to eradicate an advanced problem. It helps you keep up with everyday tasks and cope with them, feel good and relaxed. It increases well-being and helps to get rid of constant fears and sorrows. Rhodiola is good for anxiety, weakness and mental fatigue. You can also use other Ayurvedic antidepressants like Siberian ginseng, ashwagandha, bacopa monnieri or l-theanine.

Universal stress-fighting crystals are Amethyst and Rock Crystal. Carry at least one of them as a piece of jewellery to reduce tension. They help to heal your subconscious by helping to relieve stress from the Aura Field. Amethyst and Rock Crystal cleanse your thoughts and energy and contribute a lot to your well-being.

Step Four

Cleanse your skin with the right methods. HyssopSage, clary sage, tea tree, lemon and many other essential oils are great for acne. All oils can be used to cure acne, but these four are best for stress-induced acne

Do this: moisten a cotton pad with water, add about 3-4 drops of essential oil and a little carrier oil.of your choice. Use a cotton pad to clean your entire face, décolleté and back if acne has spread to other areas. Do this at least once or twice a day, preferably at bedtime or in the morning.

Add more carrier oil to the cotton bad, if the skin tingles after cleansing. This suggests that you simply used too little carrier oil.

In case of acne, try to use as few cosmetic products as possible, they can be irritating and also cause acne. You can read more about toxins in beauty products from HERE.

Milk Thistle has a restorative and cleansing effect on the skin, helping to expel toxins that come out of the skin. Milk Thistle helps the blood cleanse itself to reduce the signs of acne. It is an Ayurvedic blood purifier that is suitable for maintaining the youthfulness and beauty of the skin.

CBD oils also help fight stress. It is hemp oil that is the fastest-acting self-help in alternative medicine to date for those suffering from any kind of mental stress, tension, and problems. CBD oil also works well with other alternative sedatives and well-being herbs. When using oil, it is important that it is an organic product (free of pesticides and herbicides) and Nordic oils are of excellent quality, I recommend using them for self-healing. In addition, you will find a selection of CBD cream VALKYRIE specially designed to relieve acne in the La Tene selection. All products can be found HERE and in LA TENE stores.
