If the idea of feeding your face seems a little offbeat, then consider the negative impact stress has upon it and you’ll suddenly be reaching for a spoon. Research suggests stress can cause premature aging and also trigger ailments such as eczema and psoriasis, which is worrying in itself. To the rescue, a line-up of new moisturisers aiming to correct tired-looking skin with formulas rich in anti-oxidants and botanical extracts. Among them, Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer Daily Hydrator, a fragrance-free cream fortified with chamomile and olive-derived extracts, as well as Aesop’s Parsley Seed collection featuring intense anti-oxidant hydration that promises to leave skin feeling refreshed. Now, if only life’s other pressures were as easily calmed.
