Cultural Stress May Be Affecting Your Skin And Well Being
We live in a fast-paced environment, where we are more digitally connected than ever. In some instances, the digital connection develops into a dependent. This is a significant element of cultural stress. Spending hours on your digital devices can directly affect your skin. When we are constantly checking our Instagram or emails we are exposing ourselves to blue light, which can accelerate visible signs of aging.
Of course the stress of modern day living can have an affect on your skin. From environmental damage, lack of sleep, to travel, changes of season and now digital devices. Dermatologist/ founder of Murad skincare, Dr. Howard Murad, has done research over the past decade to help people manage cultural stress.
“I believe that healthy skin is a direct reflection of how you live your life. But today, nearly all of us are living in an increasingly stressful, always-on environment,” noted Dr. Murad, “The irony of technological advancement is that we are more digitally connected than ever before, yet less connected to one another in meaningful ways. This has profound implications for our skin, health, and ultimately happiness.”
Today, Murad is launching their campaign, EyesUp to educate people about the danger of digital-only relations and the power of real-world human connection. EyesUp, means just that: Put the smartphone down, look up and engage in face-to-face conversations. And remember to take care of your skin. Their City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer ($70) detoxifies skin overnight from the pollutants accumulated throughout the day. It is part of the Environmental Shield collection of formulas that helps prevent and combat the effects of environmental aging.
