Tips on managing stress


By Mercedes Sanchez

ways to manage stress It’s true. Stress can aggravate sensitive skin. How? Stress hormones increase the amount of oil your skin produces which can lead to clogged pores and zits.

The first way to treat stress and prevent sensitive skin occasions is by washing your face at least twice a day with facial skincare products like Simple Skincare’s Moisturizing Facial Wash, which leaves your skin thoroughly cleansed and nourished. Here are some other ways to manage stress and keep your skin happy:

#1 Treat yourself. Think about something you’ve been wanting to do but haven’t made time for. Whether it’s just a pedicure or manicure or going a little over your budget with your next visit to the shoe store.

#2 Watch something fun. Hit the movie theaters and watch a new film, or browse through my BeChicTV original videos for tutorials and celebrity interviews.

#3 Meditate. Take a walk through your local park or participate in your community to get your mind off whatever is causing you stress.

#4 Sleep more. Get more sleep by cutting back on your night routine a few nights a week and use Simple’s Cleansing Facial Wipes to remove your makeup faster while soothing your skin with pure, skin-loving ingredients.

#5 Spend time with those you love. Whether it’s your immediate family or your friends and family away from home, talk about your projects, goals, love life or your favorite new dress or lipstick!
