Stress and Your DNA

After you come back from vacation, what’s the most common remark people tell you that’s totally positive and makes you feel great about your appearance?

“You look so relaxed!”

Think about it – when you look relaxed, chances are your skin smoothes out and the dark circles around your eyes reduce or disappear altogether, because you’ve gotten enough sleep and took it easy while you were away. Even a Toronto Botox treatment achieves wrinkle-smoothing results by “relaxing” the muscles, making you look better by doing so. Stress is your enemy in the battle against the signs of aging, and now scientists have discovered why.

The study, conducted at Duke University Medical Center, finds that the feeling of stress releases chemicals that damage your DNA and reduce the amount of P53 in your body, a protein that protects cells and keeps us healthy. The result – aging signs, abnormalities, and a higher risk in the development of diseases. Yes, stress does bad things to us, both physically and mentally.

So when is your next holiday (or Botox treatment)?
