3 Things Stress Can Do To Your Skin

We’ve all felt stressed and burned out, and perhaps you know that stress can cause physical symptoms like palpitations and muscle tremors, but did you know that it can also cause dermatological problems as well? Stress is not just a psychological problem, but a physical one as well. Read on to learn about what stress does to the skin.

1. Breakouts

Breakouts can be anything like pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads. When dead skin, oil, dirt, and bacteria build up, they clog your pores and form these nasty bumps on your skin. Poor eating habits, like consuming greasy food, which is common when stressed out, can also trigger breakouts. You can avoid this problem by eating healthier and sticking to a good skincare routine.

2. Dry Skin

Irritated, itchy, and flaky skin is caused by a lack of moisture on your skin, which can happen when stressed. A good moisturizing ointment or skin cream can help fight off these symptoms.

3. Rashes

Allergies, medication, and even some cosmetic and skincare products can cause allergic reaction, but even stress can cause rashes to flare up on your skin. Hives and dermatitis are common rash types. These rashes can appear anywhere on your body and can be in multiple places at once. A good hydrocortisone cream and some cold packs can help reduce itchiness and swelling.

You only have one skin, so damaged skin will likely stay damaged for a while if not treated immediately. Although we told you how to treat each stress-induced skin problem, the best course of action is still prevention. Even if you can’t avoid stress, there are things you can do to prevent stress from manifesting harmful symptoms. Eating healthily and sticking to your skincare routine are both good practices, but to truly figure out what’s best for you and your skin, schedule a consultation with us here at Advanced Skin Fitness.
