Whether it’s a breakout of eczema, redness, rosacea flares up or acne. When you are feeling very stressed you will notice your symptoms get worse.
How can stress affect my Skin?
Stress causes a chemical response in your body that makes skin more sensitive and reactive. It can also make it harder for skin problems to heal.
You can break out more when you are stressed. This is because stress causes your body to make hormones like cortisol, which tells glands in your skin to make more oil. Oily skin is more prone to acne and other skin problems.
It can also make existing problems worse. Stress can aggravate psoriasis, rosacea, and eczema. It can also cause hives and other types of skin rashes and trigger a flare-up of fever blisters.
If you’re anything like me I let stress affect my skincare routine. This is because it makes my mind foggy and it’s often not on the top of my list of things to prioritise.
It can also be stressful to have problems with your skin. Some people feel so bad about how it looks that they keep to themselves, which adds more stress.
