Since mental  or emotional stress impacts adversely on skin and appearance, we at Herbally Radiant have been monitoring new techniques and studies on stress management, and experimenting with several combinations of Essential Oils to bring about calming and soothing effect on skin. This is especially crucial in our anti-aging formulations, as stress is known to speed up the aging process which gets reflected on face.

The new book by Stanford psychologist and award-winning teacher Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D. has offered new perspective on causes and effects of stress.  In her book “The Upside of Stress” she highlights that stress is not always harmful, and in many cases it makes us stronger, smarter, and happier. She advises that to deal with stress, the best technique is to embrace it rather than trying to escape, avoid or attempt to reduce it.

With her long experience of conducting dozens of studies, her view merits support that it is not the stress which is harmful, but the feeling of potential harm from stress which is the culprit. And to overcome stress, one needs to change the negative mindset.

Focusing on stress from the point of skin specialists, we have seen how a recent women's survey, conducted by a brand skincare company, revealed that as many as 92% of them admitted that "stress impacted on the quality of their skin".  (It was followed by diet, sleep, hormones, genetics.) Another survey by beauty journal Cosmetics Design recently reported a survey of women in which 88% of women thought that personal care products impact their skin, and 56% found it stressful when they have not gone through regular skin care regimen.

To our customers, therefore, we have been advising  that for maintaining beautiful appearance, it is essential that they learn to avoid stressful factors, and should go in for those natural  products which are safer, skin-friendly, wrinkle-repairer and which gently restore skin’s glow and beauty. We have been experimenting with several combinations of herbal organic ingredients, especially for our anti-aging formulations, and have found that some Essential Oils, when combined with right proportion  of extracts of plants and herbs, create amazing calming effect on skin. This helps in relieving a great deal of stress, which in turn gets reflected in the overall appearance.

Some of the effective Essential Oils we are using are: Geranium, Rosewood, Neroli, Pink Grape Fruit, Roman and German Chamomile (in anti-aging formulations like REJUVENATING and RADIANT).  The specially tested combinations of these Essential Oils create amazingly beautiful effect by rejuvenating and revitalizing the skin, and are strongly recommended for those wanting to give anti-aging treatment to their face.

Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil and Tea Tree Essential Oil in Herbally Radiant’sCLEAN range of products show excellent effect on sensitive skin, and are best suited for acne-prone skin, or other sensitive skin types that have other skin disorders, spots or lines.
