It’s Stress Awareness Month this month, and at Dalia Botanique, we want to discuss how stress, including environmental stress, takes a toll on our skin.
From everyday stress to environmental stress, our skin needs to be looked after.
Stress can have a significant impact on both the health and appearance of our skin.
When our bodies are stressed, a hormone called cortisol is released, which can cause inflammation and breakouts. In addition to this, stress often causes poor sleep, which can impact the skin’s ability to repair and regenerate overnight, leaving our skin with a dull and tired appearance.
Our skin can experience environmental stress caused by the negative effects of things such as pollution, UV, and climate change.
Here are some ways these factors can impact our skin:
Pollution: Air pollution can cause clogged pores, increase inflammation, and cause stress to the skin, which can result in dull, blemished skin and premature ageing.
UV exposure: exposure to the sun and humidity causes damage to skin cells, leading to premature ageing and wrinkles.
Climate: Changes in temperature, humidity, and wind can damage the natural barrier function, leading to dryness, sensitivity, and irritation, including blemishes. When the air is cold, it can strip our skin of its natural oils, whereas hot air causes excessive oil production and results in breakouts.
So, what can you do?
Let's face it, we can’t always avoid stressful times in our lives, but what we can do is control how we support our skin to overcome its impact.
It’s important to have a skincare routine that you can trust to reduce yourskin's stress levels, maintain a healthy glow, and replace anything your skin may lose across the seasons.
Dalia Botanique can help you establish a simple skincare routine that protects, nourishes, and revitalises your skin.
We've got a range of natural and organic skincare products that will protect your skin from those pesky stressors. Our ingredients are sourced from organic and sustainable farms, so you can protect your skin and the environment at the same time.
Dalia’s recommended skin care products to combat stress on your skin
Dalia Botanique’s milky cleansing oil provides a lightweight, simple, yet luxurious cleanse both morning and night.
Our gentle cleanser not only dissolves makeup, sunscreen, and pollution, but also combats the effects of environmental stress on your skin.
The powerful botanical blend removes impurities that can clog pores and cause inflammation, leaving your skin feeling cleansed, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
How to use our cleanser
Simply apply 2-3 pumps to your skin, add a small amount of water to create a milky consistency, and massage into your skin. Then wipe it off with a warm, damp cloth.
Secondly, apply our botanical serum, which contains natural ingredients sourced from UK farms that are extremely effective in moisturizing the skin and improving elasticity.
Our ingredients work together to nourish and hydrate your skin, leaving it soft and supple. It is rich in antioxidants, which help protect your skin from environmental stressors.
Over time, regular use of our serum can help improve skin texture, firmness, and elasticity, resulting in a more youthful and radiant complexion.
How to use our serum
Apply 2-3 drops of our botanical serum to clean, and dry hands, and massage onto the face and neck using upward strokes to enjoy the regenerative scents of citrus and
flowers. It can be used alone or over moisturiser and sunscreen for added protection.
Our nourishing lip and body balm with cocoa and oils such as Hemp and Monoi de Tahiti is the perfect addition to your skincare routine. This multi-purpose balm is perfect for applying to both your lips and any dry skin patches, such as elbows and knees.
How to use our balm
Apply to lips before and after going out, and apply to any dry areas such as elbows and knees as and when required.
A full Dalia Botanique skin range collection should include our luxury body oil, which is formulated from rich oils such as Primrose, Shea, Tomato seed, and Calendula.
Our pleasing range of natural botanical oils and various scents to choose from can help repair the appearance of your skin after spending time outdoors while leaving it soft and moisturised.
How to use our oil
Apply the oil to slightly damp skin. This will help fix the appearance of sun-damaged and stressed skin. Apply daily or as and when you fancy a little treat.
We are a natural and organic skincare brand that prides itself on using the best natural products sourced from sustainable suppliers. Our products are gentle, nourishing, effective, and, most importantly, beautifully luxurious.
Our aim is to provide products rich in ingredients that are affordable for all budgets.
