Even with how careful you are, things sometimes go out of hand when we talk about maintaining clear and healthy skin. Frantic days, demanding scheds, are just one of the common culprits of stress which certainly affect the skin that you usually ignore, but will surely be a cause of big skin problems if not being taken care of. Now, it is really important to know the symptoms that show your skin is indeed in a stressful situation. Let’s assess and see the solution.
Acne Flare-ups / Break-out. - Study shows the relationship between stressful times and acne breakouts. The more we are stressed out, the higher the level of androgens ( acne-causing hormones) is. This stimulates the oil glands that lead to pimple-panic.
Good news: Opt for a gentle face cleanser and toner. Doing so will calm down your skin and give a refreshing sensation that boosts happy hormones. Toning also removes any last traces of your skin specks of dirt, grime and impurities which are stuck in your pores after you wash your face. It tightens up your skin texture thus controlling oil to accumulate.
2. Skin Rashes/ Hives: This could be caused by an allergic reaction or an infection but also implies skin that is suffering from stress. Though this could come from a variety of factors, studies show that skin rashes are one of the most common skin stress reactions.
Good news: You can Apply over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream to the affected area if the rash is very itchy and causing you real discomfort. Calamine lotion also soothes out the itchiness and redness appearance. And don’t forget to have a warm bath before the application to ensure the efficacy of the treatment.
3. Eczema - is a general term that describes several different conditions in which skin is inflamed, red, scaly, and itchy. Eczema is a common skin condition, and atopic dermatitis (also called atopic eczema) is one of the most common forms,
Good news: You can treat eczema with moisturizers that are fragrance-free and contain ingredients such as ceramides, glycerin, and mineral oil.
