How Stress Management Benefits Your Skin

1. Prevents acne breakouts

Stress can increase cortisol levels in the body. This leads to the increase of oil released by the sebaceous glands. As a result, your skin pores and hair follicles become clogged with oil, and acnes appear.

2. Stops wrinkles

Stress directly effects the elasticity of your skin. It changes the proteins in skin cells and causes the skin to lose its elasticity. Also, the more stressed you get the more you frown and more wrinkles appear on your skin.

3. Removes bags around your eyes

The loss of skin elasticity around the eyes appears with sagging skin and bags formed under the eyes. This also makes the person look more tired.

4. Reduces skin dryness and sensitivity

Stress damages the skin’s outer protective layer. This way your skin may become more susceptible to the effect of irritants or bacteria. As a result, it can get more sensitive and drier. Also, your skin may either get inflamed, feel numb, and itch intensely, or in serious cases suffer from psoriasis and fever blisters.
