The Murad Approach to Stressed Skin

“It’s not the stress; it is how you respond to it.” - Dr. Howard Murad

Dr. Murad is an authority on the link between stress and skin. He coined the term Cultural Stress – the unrelenting day to day stress of modern living as the most powerful factor in his patient’s lives – and a significant impactor of skin health.
Inspired by Dr. Murad’s lifelong commitment to science-backed wellness, we create products and experiences not only for healthier skin, but for happier lives.
At Murad, we’re committed to conquering the global health epidemic of stress. “Stress less. Be imperfect. Live longer.” - Dr. Howard Murad

4 Pillars to Holistically Treat Stressed Skin

Nourish Your Skin

Whether 5 minutes or 15, daily skincare is the best way to care for stressed skin. “Skin is beautiful when it’s healthy at the cellular level. Look for powerful hydrating ingredients that support the skin’s barrier function to protect cells from environmental damage and dehydration, while encouraging healthy cell turnover,” says Dr. Murad.

Eat Your Water

Getting your daily 8 is great but eating your water might be best. “Drinking too much water can sometimes cause vitamins and minerals to be flushed out,” says Dr. Murad. Eating foods that are high in water content (like celery, watermelon & cucumbers) can help hydrate the body from the inside out. And hydration is essential to the health of skin.

Awaken Your Body

Exercise is not one size fits all: a 7 am HIIT class is great for some, a sunset walk at the beach benefits others. Here’s the good news: No matter how you move, it does wonders for your mind, body, soul, and skin. “By exercising, you’ll help promote circulation, and skin is the body’s largest organ,” says Dr. Murad. “Increased blood flow helps carry oxygen to the cells and helps carry away waste such as harmful free radicals.

Be Kind to Your Mind

Meditation is wonderful—but it doesn’t have to be all about the ohm. Flower arranging, journaling and cooking are great ways to unwind and give your always-on brain a break. “By caring for your emotional self, you can reduce the cellular impact of stress, which can lead to signs of unhealthy skin,” says Dr. Murad.
