New Study: Can Looking Younger Help You Climb the Corporate Ladder?

As outlined in a recent article in Sydney, Australia’s Morning Herald, women today feel that looking younger can help them both personally and professionally. Because women in their 30s, 40s and beyond are often competing with colleagues fresh out of college and graduate school, many feel that a youthful look gives them the edge they need to succeed.

The article states, “Research statistics say ageism in the workplace is running rampant, with nearly a third of workers over 45 saying they face discrimination. For many women, this means lying about their age and checking into the skincare clinic to wind back the clock with laser treatments, BOTOX and dermal filler injections.”

Effects of Stress on Skin: Not Pretty!

PerfectionDid you know that stress can seriously effect your skin? It’s sad, but true. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, stress has been shown to impair skin barrier function and dehydrate skin.

This allows more harsh, harmful irritants, allergens and infectious agents to penetrate the complexion and cause problems like acne, psoriasis, rosacea and signs of aging.

Marie Claire Magazine recently explained the effects of stress on skin in depth: “The way stress affects your skin is that when you’re tense, your brain releases cortisol, a stress hormone, into your bloodstream. That tells oil glands to ramp up production, leading to breakouts. Stress also dilates blood vessels, which causes redness and aggravates rosacea.

Another side effect is skin becomes dehydrated, sensitive, and more susceptible to damage. Besides causing lines from furrowing your brow, stress also makes you look markedly older. We already lose 1 percent of our skin’s collagen supply every year after we hit age 20, but stress can accelerate that.”
