We all know how much stress can negatively impact your skin. From annoying breakouts to dark circles under your eyes and dry skin. There’s no denying that chronic stress isn’t good, especially for our skin.
But, what about happiness? When we think about how to improve our skin, one of the last things many of us think about is how our mood impacts our skin. However, happiness is an essential component in having naturally glowing skin that lasts.
That’s why at BB Aesthetic, we pride ourselves on creating a happy and comfortable place for all clients to feel and look their best. We aren’t just a top medical spa, we are family.

Furthermore, we want you to carry that same happiness through in your day-to-day life until your next appointment with us.
In this post, you’ll learn how stress negatively impacts your skin, how happiness can improve your skin, and ways to prioritize happiness in your daily life.
Stress Negatively Impacts Your Skin
According to WebMD, the mind and the skin are closely related. This explains why chronic stress harms your skin. For instance, when you are more stressed and tense, your body in turn releases stress hormones that increase your skin’s oil production. This increase in oil production then increases your chances of experiencing breakouts.
Acne isn’t the only sign of how negative emotions can be seen in the skin. Eczema, hives, and rosacea are just some skin problems that can result from negative emotions and stress.
How Happiness Improves Your Skin
On the other hand, happiness is the all-encompassing secret ingredient that naturally provides you with radiantly healthy, glowing skin. This is because happiness reduces stress levels, which previously discussed release stress hormones that can cause a variety of skin problems.
There’s no denying the power of positive emotions in improving your skin. Sometimes called the “happiness glow”, this theory believes that positive emotions can help repair and heal your skin, causing your skin to effortlessly look healthy and glowy.
It’s important to note that happiness is important in improving your skin; however, you still need to keep up with your daily skincare routine. This includes removing all your makeup before bed, washing your face with a quality cleanser, moisturizing, and of course, applying SPF. At BB Aesthetic, we offer a variety of gentle cleansers and sunscreens so you have all the skincare product essentials to maintain your flawless skin.
Ways To Prioritize Your Happiness Every Day
Now that you know the importance of happiness when it comes to skincare, you must prioritize your happiness. Bad days are inevitable, we’re all human. However, following the below ways to consistently bring happiness and joy into your life will make you feel loved and confident. Feeling loved, confident, and comfortable in your own skin will in turn make you happy and will naturally give you a more youthful, glowing appearance.
Research has found that genuine smiles make for healthy, glowing skin. This is because smiling uses your brain’s reward mechanism which ultimately stimulates endorphins and serotonin. These make you feel happy and over time improve your skin.
Look for something to smile about in your daily life. Whether it be watching a funny pet video or enjoying nature, doing things that naturally make you smile in turn triggers the “happy”/feel-good part of your brain.
Prioritizing Time With Loved Ones
Spend time with loved ones. This will surely put you in a positive attitude by being surrounded by those who love and appreciate you for being your unique self.
By spending time building loving relationships instead of toxic relationships, you are setting yourself up for success in feeling genuine happiness instead of having to “fake a smile”.
Consider calling your friends and/or family members weekly or spending time with them to put yourself in a good mood.
Practice Relaxing Techniques To Reduce Stress
Another way to prioritize your happiness is by daily practicing ways to reduce your stress levels. Stress is normal; however, intense, chronic stress is harmful. Consider practicing meditation, reading, doing yoga, or whatever method helps you manage your stress levels.
Last but not least, it’s important to treat yourself to make you feel the best, most confident version of yourself. At BB Aesthetic, we offer a wide range of services in a happy, comfortable space that will help improve your skin’s youthful, dewy glow. From facials to chemical peels, you deserve to feel confident and happy to look and feel your very best.
