As we cope through the uncertainty that this extraordinary situation brings us, we are exposed to different levels of stress. These stress not only influences our mental health, but also our physical wellbeing.
To know more about the effects stress has on our body, Oilatum, a pedia-recommended skincare solution for dry and sensitive skin, hosted a webinar talking this, and focusing on the largest organ of the body, our skin.
“People respond to stress differently as we are unique individuals,” says Dr. Antonio Sison, “it could affect different aspects of your life, from work, to physical and mental wellbeing. Stress specifically triggers hair loss and accelerates skin aging.”
With the current happenings, stress could trigger inflammation, dry skin out, and even aggravate current skin conditions like acne and eczema. Make sure to regularly check your skin for symptoms and take precautionary measures to prevent further aggravation of the condition – such as the use of a mild and moisturizing soap and minimizing wearing makeup under one’s mask.
“Children’s skin is much more prone to dry skin as compared to adult skin. To make sure your kids are protected against this, make sure to use a gentle, non-irritant cleanser that has no parabens, non-GMO, and made with natural cleaning ingredients. It’s important to choose cleansers that maintain moisture in our kids’ skin,” shares Dr. Sison when asked about how to take care of children’s skin.
A child’s skin loses water five times faster than adult skin. Parents should invest in a trusted skin care brand and show their love through unlimited hugs and kisses with a pedia-recommended quality soap like Oilatum to help address children’s dry and sensitive skin.
“Here at Oilatum, we believe that parents should be able to show their love to their kids however they want. As we go through this extraordinary time, we want to make sure that we are also taking care of our children’s skin indoors. Oilatum has Moisture PROTECTnology, which helps leave the skin soft and moisturized by trapping in moisture without the greasy feeling,” says Sharmaine Abarientos at Oilatum Philippines.
