Stress may crop up from time to time throughout your days, and it can have a detrimental effect if it sticks around long enough. It can affect your ability to think clearly and sleep soundly, and it can also affect your skin. Stress effects on skin can include an increase in blemishes, pimples, dryness and itchiness. It can likewise exacerbate any existing skincare issues you may have, making them much more noticeable. Sabon NYC is here to help, with these simple steps to destress your skin.

Relax and Repair

Facial muscles often get a workout during stressful times, with frowning and worry lines seemingly becoming etched in your facial skin. Stop wrinkles before they start by paying attention to your facial expressions, relaxing any tenseness as soon as it arises. Keep your facial skin relaxed and maintained with a high-quality facial cleanser and nourishing serum. Serums can be especially helpful for maintaining optimum skin hydration by repairing cell membranes and preventing water loss.

Remove Dead Skin Cells

Stressed-out skin doesn't shed old skin cells as rapidly as skin normally would. This can leave you with dull, rough, itchy skin on your face as well other areas of your body. Give your skin a boost with an exfoliating scrub for the face and Dead Sea salt body scrub for the rest of the body. Exfoliating scrubs can be used once or twice a week to help remove dead skin cells, stimulate circulation and give your skin a healthy glow. Get extra stress-relief for the facial skin by following the scrub with a hydrating facial mask.


Regular use of a luxurious moisturizer is a must for soothing stressed skin. Choose a formulation based on your skin type. Thicker creams tend to work best for dry, itchy skin, while milky, thinner formulations can be a dream come true for oily skin. Choose a day moisturizer and night moisturizer for your face, along with an all-day moisturizer for your body.

Following a skincare routine designed to help destress your skin can transform dry, tired, dull and itchy skin into skin that's soft, supple and smooth. Review the multiple luxury skincare options at Sabon NYC and place your order today.
