Stress + Your Skin
It’s a simple equation: chronic stress + increased hormone levels + increase in oil (sebum) = Acne.
Don’t be picky- It can be so tempting to “pick” or “pop” your pimples, but doing this can lead to further problems. The drainage & bacteria can produce more breakouts.
If you can’t keep your hands away from your face make sure that your fingers/fingernails are clean to avoid spreading more acne causing bacteria on your skin.
Find a skincare regime that works for your skin. Keep in mind that your skincare needs do change with age and lifestyle. Topical treatments such as salicylic acid can lead to successful results.
If possible, avoid stress related triggers…this can be difficult but it is worth the effort.
