Stress always has an impact on your skin. It makes your skin tired and dull. So you must manage your stress and channelize your anxiety correctly. For example, meditating for a few minutes in the morning or before going to bed will significantly help release stress.
Follow a healthy diet
We know the famous saying that your skin reflects whatever you eat. So you should ask a dietician to make your diet plan. Chocolates, chips, french fries, sodas are a big no-no! Instead, it’s best if you slowly start eliminating excess carbohydrates and sugar from your diet. But having a sudden change in the diet will have undesirable effects on your health. Thus, you need to gradually start following a balanced diet full of green veggies, protein, and fruits.
