Leading busy lives, feeling stressed and under pressure can also cause physical symptoms like skin distress. If you are feeling stress in your everyday life it’s worth looking at these 4 signs to evaluate the impact it’s having on your skin.
When we are stress we tend to stop being kind to ourselves. We often skip meals; stop exercising, skip our skincare routine and we often don’t keep hydrated. These factors that cause your skin to dry out and become flaky.
To treat dry skin use a light moisturiser such as SkinB5 Acne Control Moisturiser.
Research indicates there are links between acne and stress due to hormones. Stress causes your body to release hormones like cortisol, which causes the skin to produce more oil. More oil can mean your skin becomes clogged and exacerbates acne.
To manage your Acne flare-ups take SkinB5 Acne Control Extra Strength Tablets or Caplets on a daily basis.
Hives are itchy red lumps over the skin. It can be caused by an allergic reaction, but some people experience chronic hives that can be caused by heat, exercise and stress. Existing hives can be made worse by stress.
Hives can be treated with antihistamines. We recommend you see a doctor or pharmacist to rule-out an allergic reaction.
Do you break out in a sweat when you are stressed? It’s common for people to experience increased sweating when they are under stress. Sweat can cause the skin to clog and spread bacteria.
Increased sweating due to stress is best managed by treating the stress. Try breathing techniques to help you relax, yoga and exercise.
When you are in distress so is your skin! Try relaxation methods to keep yourself calm and to release stress. When you take control of your stress you may find your skin improves.
