As I grow older, I’ll feel moody and pessimistic easily. I know I need to be cheerful more often. So whenever I encounter mood swings, I will remind myself not to get too emotional on things and be more positive. Life is too short, you won’t know what will happen tomorrow.
I have gone through many obstacles lately and many times, I will ask myself ‘WHY ME?’. But I guess that’s life, I will have to except what it comes.
One thing I realize is, whenever I’m happy, my skin is happy too. My skin will feel hydrate, supple and radiance. Wrinkles, lines and dark eye circles are also less visible.
But when I’m stress or depressed, my skin will look dull, haggard and dark eye circles will look so bad even though I have sufficient sleep the day before. Wrinkles and lines will appear more obviously and new ones seem to form rapidly. I will look ‘aged’ as though I’ve added 10 years to my skin!
It is because when a person feels depressed or stress, the body will create more cortisol – a stress hormone. Cortisol is very damaging to the cells that make up the facial skin and other important organs in the body. Prolonged, excessively high cortisol levels worsen intrinsic facial aging changes by damaging collagen.
So even that $500 wrinkle cream will not able to diminish that aging look!
So I have learned the quick and more effective way to maintain my youthful skin – is to be happy.
More laughters, more jokes!
Although many people will think that laughter will create more lines but I do not agree with that.
That is why woman will look at her ‘best’ when she has JUST fallen in love or married! She’s at her most happiest moment.
Studies have shown that happiness is not only good for the skin but also for the body. People who are easily depressed or stress will get more illness than a happy person.
Are you a happy or depressed person? How do you make yourself happy, can share?
