SKIN CONDITIONS

Physical Changes to the Skin

Physical Changes to the Skin

While emotional imbalance and genetics can lead to physical changes to the skin, the health and appearance of a woman’s skin is greatly affected by diet, exercise, the environment (sun damage), pregnancy, menstrual cycle and diseases, such as diabetes, thyroid conditions, or cancer. Such changes may cause accelerated skin-aging in the form of acne, fine lines and wrinkles, dry, irritated skin, loss of elasticity, change in color and tone, brown spots, and hair loss.

Emotional Changes to the Skin

Emotional Changes to the Skin

A balanced state of mind helps to balance the body and the skin. When women become highly emotional, their bodies react to stress in many way. While dermatologists are still debating whether emotional stress actually causes skin disorders, they seem to agree that stress definitely triggers or aggravates skin conditions such as acne, hives, eczema, psoriasis, rashes, Rosacea, warts, cold sores and blisters. Ongoing day-to-day stress adversely impacts the body’s immune system.

Physiological Changes to the Skin

Physiological Changes to the Skin

Genetics and life stages such as puberty, pregnancy, and menopause cause physiological or biochemical changes affecting the way the skin and its cells function. For example, during pregnancy, the skin retains more water due to hormonal changes that increase the production of estrogen. Puberty and pregnancy may increase oil production in the sebaceous glands causing acne. And during menopause, estrogen and progesterone levels decline causing dry, itchy skin and dry hair.

Our primary goal at mybody is to provide the best skin care products possible to suit the unique needs of women through different life stages.
