4 Bad Things Stress Does To Skin, And How to De-Stress

According to Bellaplex reviews, this age defying moisturizer is snatching attention from other products thanks to its wonderful ability to reduce the appearance of aging signs on the skin. However, there is one skin enemy that you still need to battle along with using the best anti aging product.


It is stress.


Stress has become part and parcel of modern life. Some amount of stress is important, as it makes you push your abilities higher. It throws challenges that keep your creative juices flowing. Life becomes more thrilling and interesting. Your brain works harder to find solutions.

However, high amounts of stress and consistent stressful conditions are detrimental to physical and mental health. This includes the health of the skin. People who live in constant stress tend to age faster. It shows on their faces.


How prolonged stress affects the skin

  • Your body releases stress hormones that constrict blood vessels. This reduces blood flow. This, in turn, reduces oxygen and nutrients to skin. Consequently, skin becomes pale, dry, and irritated.
  • Stress makes your breathing shallow and quick. This, again, reduces oxygen supply to the skin, making it dull and aged. Your eyes look fatigued. Your skin lacks glow.
  • Skin problems like eczema, rashes, and breakouts worsen. Many people find their skin breaking out in periods of extreme stress.
  • You usually frown when worried or anxious. Constant frowning encourages the formation of frown lines. It also encourages wrinkles formation on face.


How to de-stress

  • Have some “me’ time daily. Read your favorite book or have a long bath. Do what you love.
  • Manage your time well so that you can accomplish more in less time. This way you will have free time for yourself.
  • Learn to say ‘no’.
  • Watch what you eat. Have lots of fruits and veggies, nuts and seeds, and up to 3 liters of water daily.
  • Sleep soundly for 7-8 hours every night. Watch your skin glow in the morning. That’s why it is called ‘beauty sleep.’
  • Exercise for 20-30 minutes every day or at least 4 times a week. It flushes out the toxins from your body systems, improves blood circulation, and encourages production of more endorphins, which are happy hormones. All these provide a healthy glow to the skin.
  • Do deep breathing exercises. Meditate for 10-15 minutes daily. Do some yoga poses to stretch the body. All this creates a positive impact on the skin. This is the largest organ of the body, covering you from head to toe. Whatever happens inside body, whether good or bad, shows on skin first.
  • Get a good massage. It relaxes the body muscles and the mind.
  • Do not stress about choosing the right anti aging products. Learn about the top-rated ones. Try them and see how they work. Buy accordingly. For example, Bellaplex risk free trial offer is a rage these days.


Choosing age defying products without stress

Educate yourselves about the ingredients needed to make an anti aging product workable. Once you know them, you simply need to read the labels and reviews of products to make your choice.


An age defying moisturizer should have:

  • Collagen boosters that stimulate natural collagen production in the skin
  • Hyaluronic Acid, which is skin’s natural moisturizing compound
  • Adequate sun protection factor
  • The latest skin care and peptide technology to increase elastin production in skin


Combined performance of the above ingredients creates dramatic results on the skin. Your face attains a lovely glow and it becomes almost impossible to guess your true age. Bellaplex reviews clearly show that this age defying moisturizer contains all the necessary ingredients needed to make it work successfully on the skin.

And Today, This Happened on Amazon...

Longtime Amazon customers are probably aware of the recent plague of coupon club reviews that have been infesting the site over the past year or so. Basically, the word is out that certain reviewers/bloggers, etc, are enjoying the privileges of getting all kinds of free & cheap crap (in every sense) from various companies and they want in. no matter what. No one seemed all that interested in free books, though...


Naturally, shady stuff commenced. Companies like Amazon Review Trader (AMZRT) popped up, offering all kinds of bullshit on the cheap, so long as you provided them with an "honest & unbiased review". Which would lead to more cheapies, and so on.


Well, not anymore. Or at least, not so much until they figure out a way around things. https://www.amazon.com/p/feature/abpto3jt7fhb5oc


Update on Customer Reviews

October 3, 2016


Customer reviews are one of the most valuable tools we offer customers for making informed purchase decisions, and we work hard to make sure they are doing their job. In just the past year, we’ve improved review ratings by introducing a machine learned algorithm that gives more weight to newer, more helpful reviews; applying stricter criteria to qualify for the Amazon verified purchase badge; and suspending, banning or suing thousands of individuals for attempting to manipulate reviews. Our community guidelines have always prohibited compensation for reviews, with an exception – reviewers could post a review in exchange for a free or discounted product as long as they disclosed that fact. These so-called ‘incentivized reviews’ make up only a tiny fraction of the tens of millions of reviews on Amazon, and when done carefully, they can be helpful to customers by providing a foundation of reviews for new or less well-known products.


Today, we updated the community guidelines to prohibit incentivized reviews unless they are facilitated through the Amazon Vine program. We launched Vine several years ago to carefully facilitate these kinds of reviews and have been happy with feedback from customers and vendors.


Here’s how Vine works: Amazon – not the vendor or seller – identifies and invites trusted and helpful reviewers on Amazon to post opinions about new and pre-release products; we do not incentivize positive star ratings, attempt to influence the content of reviews, or even require a review to be written; and we limit the total number of Vine reviews that we display for each product. Vine has important controls in place and has proven to be especially valuable for getting early reviews on new products that have not yet been able to generate enough sales to have significant numbers of organic reviews. We also have ideas for how to continue to make Vine an even more useful program going forward. Details on that as we have them. The above changes will apply to product categories other than books. We will continue to allow the age-old practice of providing advance review copies of books. Thank you. – Chee Chew, VP, Customer Experience


Sounded great to me! Until I read this:




Promotional Content in Customer Reviews

Our goal is to capture all the energy, enthusiasm, and feedback (both favorable and critical) that customers have about a product while avoiding use of reviews to advertise, promote, or mislead.


To help illustrate, here are a few examples of reviews that we don't allow: • *A product brand posts a review of their own product

• *A customer posts a review in exchange for cash, a free or discounted product, a gift certificate, or a discount off a future purchase provided by a third party

• *A customer posts a review in exchange for entry into a contest or sweepstakes or membership in a program

• *A customer posts a review of a game in exchange for bonus in-game content or credits • *A relative, close friend, business associate, or employee of the product creator posts a review to help boost sales

• *A customer posts a review of the product after being promised a refund in exchange for the review

• *A seller posts negative reviews about a competitor's product

• *An author posts a positive review about a peer's book in exchange for receiving a positive review from the peer


(It's that second entry that's giving me pause.)


And furthermore: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201929730


Promotions and Commercial Solicitations

In order to preserve the integrity of Community content, content and activities consisting of advertising, promotion, or solicitation (whether direct or indirect) is not allowed, including:

• Creating, modifying, or posting content regarding your (or your relative's, close friend's, business associate's, or employer's) products or services.

• Creating, modifying, or posting content regarding your competitors' products or services.

• Creating, modifying, or posting content in exchange for compensation of any kind (including free or discounted products) or on behalf of anyone else.

• Offering compensation or requesting compensation (including free or discounted products) in exchange for creating, modifying, or posting content.

• Posting advertisements or solicitations, including URLs with referrer tags or affiliate codes.


(That third line is what's bugging me.)


And last, but not least: "Book authors and publishers may continue to provide free or discounted copies of their books to readers, as long as the author or publisher does not require a review in exchange or attempt to influence the review."




I often review books from book tour companies and whatnot, so while it says ARCs directly provided by publishers are ok it's also saying no third-party providers allowed. 


I'll admit I'm a little confused here. I'm not mad about the changes; I'm glad this finally happened and think they should've gone even further with cleaning things up. I just wish they'd be clearer about what's what to help avoid mistakes.

Customer Reviews on Oakmere Home Advisors

Janette Borodin, The Oaks, Longtown


"The team at Oakmere were so accommodating and so helpful in progressing the purchase of the bungalow. They treated me like an individual with a very personal approach, rather than just another customer - nothing was too much trouble. I had already sold my own home and they really went the extra mile to get me moved into the bungalow"


"I love the modern bathroom and fitted kitchen, and the bungalow offers a very good standard of finish both inside and outside - it has real kerb appeal, right down to the block-paved drive. As soon as I moved in - it just felt like home"


Dave and Kate Dickinson, Riverside View, Kendal


"Thank you so much for the super contact Oakmere have provided and the wonderful plumbers who have been to solve the problem. We really do appreciate the wonderful after care"


Derek Brookfield, The Orchards, Bolton Le Sands


"Thank you so much for helping with my house purchase and move"


"It has been a lovely experience and made better by your patience and consideration"


Graham and Sophie Lumsden, The Orchards, Bolton Le Sands


"We would like to thank you for all your help, time, advise, and patience over the past few months. It feels like our lovely new home wouldn't have been possible without you"


Thomas and Jess Proctor, The Orchards, Bolton Le Sands


"We definitely wanted 3 bedrooms and a new home was our preferred choice. The modern specification in terms of energy efficiency and the 10 year NHBC guarantee should make it low maintenance"


"We were also very impressed with the detailing of the home - nice little touches in the design - and particularly the high quality of the fitted SieMatic kitchen"


"Moving in was absolutely trouble free and any minor issues we have come across since then have quickly been sorted by Oakmere and their site representative Janet, who really stays on top of things"


Helen Elliott, The Oaks, Longtown


"The Oaks development itself is lovely and so are the people there.  I surprised myself by buying a bungalow; I always thought they were for old people who had trouble getting about, but it is wonderfully practical with all the advantages of an apartment, except that you have a private garden and drive, and of course you don’t have anyone living above or below you."


"I have been very impressed with the quality of the build and the thoughtful touches, like a hard-wired doorbell, exterior lights, external water tap, soft closing cupboard doors and the general high quality of the kitchen.  But most of all I have been impressed with how easy Oakmere were to deal with on the part exchange and the move – they just made it all happen.”


Andrew and Wendy Wilkinson, The Oaks, Longtown


"The build quality is excellent with high levels of insulation to keep down heating bills, and The Oaks is in a good location for us – easy to get onto the motorway or into Carlisle for work. It is very quiet and we get on with the neighbours – so it has all worked out very well.”


David and Ingrid Young, The Oaks, Longtown


"The bungalow at The Oaks suits our needs perfectly. Because it is brand new there are no worries about maintenance or repairs; whenever you buy an older house you generally find something needs doing or replacing, whether it is electrical wiring or a new boiler, but the fact that it is brand new with a 10 year NHBC guarantee removes all that worry."


"We wanted a bungalow where we could enjoy our retirement and now we have one – perfect.”


Peter Goode, The Oaks, Longtown


"The Oaks is just a few yards away from where I used to live and I knew they were building houses but I didn't realise they also built bungalows. Oakmere bought my existing home which left me free to move into the new bungalow."


"It is brilliant having everything on one level; when I was travelling up and down the country I always used to sleep in the lorry cab so I didn't have much experience of posh hotels but that first night in the bungalow I thought ‘this is what it must be like'.”
