Most of us have experienced stress in our day to day lives. Whether yours comes from long days at work, a new-born baby who likes to party into the early hours or a family emergency – it’s your skin that’ll take the hit. Yep, life’s full of these little curve balls and, short of changing your whole lifestyle (and hiring a live-in night nurse...?) there’s not a lot we can do about them. But the one thing we can do something about is how our skin behaves when tensions rise.
When you’re stressed, your skin feels it too. If you’ve been experiencing breakouts, dehydration, redness, fatigue, itchiness or an overall imbalance that you can’t quite put your finger on, chances are it’s stress that’s causing it. According to our recent survey, 89% of people said they felt stressed (regularly or sometimes) and 90% agreed that stress can show up on your skin. Feel seen? Hey, it’s no stress.
Luckily, it is possible to stop everyday worries from impacting your complexion, starting with a clever little ingredient called Niacinamide. It packs a punch when it comes to fixing things and is, quite frankly, the holy grail for gorgeously clear, de-stressed skin. Even our survey showed that 72% of people are interested in trying Niacinamide for stressed skin. So why is Niacinamide stressed skin’s hero? Well, not only is it a brilliant anti-inflammatory, it also helps to brighten the skin, lock in moisture, refine pores, keep excess oil at bay, improve skin tone and texture and generally leave it smoother, firmer and clearer. So any stress life chucks at your skin, Niacinamide throws straight back, boomerang style.
So, how can Balance Me help? It’s well known that going natural with your skincare is the best way to bring balance back to your skin, as well as combatting signs of stress. And, well, Balance Me is 98% natural, so it’s a no brainer really. If your skin is stressed and you need a nudge in the completely perfect direction, Balance Me has all bases covered thanks to our superhuman, super-balancing products. Take our Ceramide Barrier Booster for example. It’s so lightweight in texture you barely notice you’re wearing it and yet the muscle it puts behind comforting, soothing and restoring the skin’s barrier is well and truly mind-boggling. The same can be said for our Niacinamide Complexion Booster, which brilliantly brightens, clears, hydrates and adds radiance to stressed, dull skin. And then there’s our Tri-Molecular Hyaluronic Serum, packed with a trio of thirsty skin-quenching hyaluronic acids, to help plump and protect the skin.
So you see, when it comes to de-stressing your skin, we’ve got you. Say “so long” to stress-face and welcome in a new era of well-balanced, happy skin.
