Stress is inevitable. Whether it’s daily stressors chipping away at us or a big, life-changing experience that rocks us to our core, stress isn’t just giving us agita and making us irritable. This natural physical and mental reaction can wreak havoc on our faces and bodies, aging us faster than a lifetime of smoking and bad eating habits.

How our skin responds to stress is particularly interesting, Although we may live in a skin-care obsessed culture, according to New York dermatologist Julie Russak, MD, our body hasn’t caught on yet:
“Our skin, hair and nails are of the lowest importance to our survival,” she says.
“So, at times of stress, valuable vitamins and minerals are prioritized for our body’s vital metabolic processes and the production of stress hormones. Skin is an external barometer of what is happening internally, and we often see dull skin at times of fatigue and stress.” A dull complexion is the least of our worries—we can also expect more lines and wrinkles, too.
But there is some sweet relief
New Beauty put together a selection of their Skin Savers. These skin savers and mindfulness miracle workers can help us calm our nerves and achieve a better mood, better skin and better sleep. Our MitoQ Skin Support Complex was included in their selection.
