Stress can both cause and trigger premature aging, acne, eczema, rosacea, and vitiligo. Your skin and mood are so closely interconnected that when you experience intense negative emotions, your skin will show it. When stressed out, your adrenal glands release the hormone cortisol. A surge in cortisol causes increased sebum production, which triggers acne. Anxiety about stress at work, school, and home can make eczema flare up. Dealing with visible symptoms of stress can trigger more issues, which can lead to even more stress. And stress negatively impacts your immune system. Being anxious or stressed can aggravate autoimmune conditions (including vitiligo and psoriasis). To relieve stress – and keep your skin naturally glowing – use sleep, meditation, exercise and touch. A good night’s sleep gives your skin time to rejuvenate. Optimally, you should get about 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. Meditation and moderate exercise are known to help you manage stress. Meditation helps boost your mood, decrease inflammation, and even lower yearly doctor visits! If you exercise every morning (without overdoing it), it can help balance your adrenal function to help you better cope with stressful situations. And, touch causes the release of hormones in your body that make you feel happy and connected. Check out these tips on sleep, meditation, and exercise for more.
Clean your nails regularly and make sure all your nail tools are periodically washed and sanitized. Make sure that your nails don’t grow too long as that makes it easier for the dirt to accumulate below the nails. Apply natural disinfectants on your nails like tea tree oil to keep the bacteria away and protect your nails from germs. Back To TOC
Sun protection is essential for healthy skin and natural beauty. While some sun may give you a sun-kissed glow, we know that too much damages your skin and predisposes you to premature aging, uneven skin tone, and other chronic diseases. When it comes to sunscreen – avoid those with chemicals linked to hormone disrupting effects and opt instead for one that’s mineral based. Mineral sunscreens use zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as active ingredients — two natural minerals. And instead of absorbing into your skin, these minerals sit on top of your skin; protecting it by reflecting UV rays away. Here’s one of my favorites. For added protection you can nourish and protect your skin from the sun’s damaging effects by using skin care with natural ingredients such as chlorella and resveratrol. Due to its high levels of chlorophyll, green algae extract (or Chlorella Vulgaris) helps to shield your body from UV radiation. Being an antioxidant, green algae protects your skin against free radicals too. Because cell damage is at the root of most aging disorders, protecting the skin from free-radical activity is a significant preventative measure for healthy, younger-looking skin. The high amount of essential amino acids and vitamins such as A, B, C and E also work to protect your skin and prevent premature aging. And green algae helps to instantly hydrate and condition your skin, leaving it more supple and moisturized.

The skin around your eyes is softer, thinner, and more sensitive to inflammation. Which is why environmental or topical toxins, a lack of sleep, hormonal changes and allergies often lead to tired puffy eyes. To eliminate tired puffy eyes just use chilled tea bags. The antioxidants, caffeine, and tannins in green, black, and chamomile teas help reduce irritation and work to soothe your skin quickly. The anti-inflammatory properties in teas also reduce fluid retention and promote blood circulation around your eyes – giving your eyes a fresh, renewed appearance. To use chilled tea bags – briefly steep 2 green, black, or chamomile tea bags in hot water for less than a minute. Then remove the tea bags from the water and chill in a small bowl in the refrigerator. Once chilled, place 1 bag over each closed eyelid. Leave on your lids for 5 to 15 minutes.

Stefani says her number one tip for making her skin glow is getting enough sleep. "However, second to that, I think a lot of people will just keep piling one more makeup, more powder," she told Elle.
