NEW! Stress Positive Eye LiftStress - just the word depicts a negative state. But it’s not all about heart palpitations, road rage and hot sweats! We need to remember all the good things that stress does for us as well. There is a beneficial outlook on stress referred to as Eustress, derived from the Greek prefix - eu- meaning “good” and defined as a healthy cognitive response to stress that gives one a feeling of fulfilment or other positive feelings. Eustress can motivate, focus our energy and improve performance. When your body is under stress, it releases adrenaline and cortisol. When cortisol is released, it’s has a visible effect on the skin through a process called glycation, a stress effect on the skin that damages collagen, hardening it, increasing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. When adrenaline is present in the body, blood flow to the skin is decreased, taking important nutrients, such as oxygen, away from the skin resulting in a dull and lacklustre appearance.
