True or False: Stress Causes Wrinkles

This is true.


The stress hormone cortisol actually degrades Collagen, which is one of the main proteins found in youthful-looking skin. Wrinkles, which are caused by lost or weakened Collagen, can begin to form during times of prolonged stress when cortisol levels are high. There’s no avoiding stress; that’s why it’s so important to make time for relaxation, allowing the levels of stress hormones to lessen. Reach a state of inner peace by doing yoga or other exercise, taking regular walks, listening to music, talking to a good friend and/or practicing meditation. Additionally, you can help to stimulate your skin’s production of Collagen by using Collagen-stimulating Peptides. If you'd like to include Peptides in your anti-aging regimen (and we really suggest you do if you're serious about fighting wrinkles), check out our
