Stress & the Skin

Stress causes a chemical response in your body that makes the skin more sensitive and reactive. This is because stress causes your body to make hormones like cortisol, which tells the glands to produce more oil. So the oilier skin-type is prone to acne and other skin problems.
Stress can also have an impact on those suffering from eczema, acne, hives, rosacea, and psoriasis. It can cause these conditions to have what they call "a flare-up."

We are seeing a lot of these skin conditions at the moment, given the stress and anxiety attached to these uncertain times. All we can do is try to manage our stress and anxiety the best we can.
Trying to take care of our mind can mean a variety of things for different people.

The first piece of advice is if you are not coping please seek professional help; this is so important, and no one should feel embarrassed or ashamed if they decide to do this. We have so many resources out there to help with our mental health.
The other things that may help are exercise, as this is a great way to release those good endorphins.
Meditation is also beneficial for some, and there are so many Apps that you can download and follow.

Once we have addressed some of the internal stress factors contributing to skin issues, then we need to look at our home-care at this time and make sure we are keeping the skin as healthy as possible. Take the time to look at your skin and work out what it might be needing. It is really important to get the right advice from a professional.
Cleansing, exfoliating, correcting with a specific serum, hydrating, and protecting the skin will give it the best possible chance to stay healthy.
