Whether at work, in the family or in leisure time – pressure to perform and multitasking are part of everyday life for many today. And the current pandemic reinforces this trend even further.
How do stress hormones work?
Whether at work, in the family or in leisure time – pressure to perform and multitasking are part of everyday life for many today. And the current pandemic reinforces this trend even further. Whether it’s the double burden of work and homeschooling, financial existential fears or concerns about your own health – in the current situation, stress tends to increase.
Actually, stress hormones – the best known are cortisol and adrenaline – serve to temporarily increase performance and concentration. For example, adrenaline causes an increase in heart rate and blood pressure, which in turn briefly boosts the oxygen supply to the cells.
Stress hormones are therefore a natural reaction of the body to exceptional situations. However, if the situations do not occur for a short period of time, but rather for a longer period of time, the body cannot regenerate – and this is also reflected in our appearance. The best remedy is rest and a break from everyday life – but that’s not always possible. We show immediate measures that you can use to reduce stress-related consequences for skin and hair.
What to do? As an emergency measure, simply provide more volume at the roots, e.g. with hair powder or volume products. In the long term, it is advisable to consult a doctor who can diagnose a potential nutrient deficiency and suggest appropriate measures.
