Having Many Skin Problems? You May Stop Stressing Yourself Out

July 31, 2023


Your skin tells when you are stressed out. Studies show that stress can have negative effects on overall skin wellness and exacerbate many skin conditions, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, scalp rash, hives



How stress affects skin


Our brain and skin communicate with each other. When we feel stress, our brain secretes hormones that induce the release of cortisol from our adrenal glands for our body to respond to stress. Cortisol can slow the production of beneficial oils, which makes skin dry, rough, and much more vulnerable to inflammation, irritation, infection, and hyperpigmentation. And cortisol simulates the overproduction of sebum which is implicated in acne. That is why when we are under stress, our skin seems more oily and more acne-prone.


If stress continues, an overabundance of cortisol can affect the immune system and make it difficult to fight off toxins and control inflammation which is important for wound healing. Stress hormones can also break down the collagen and elastin in the skin and interfere with rejuvenation, speeding up the aging process and causing more fine lines and wrinkles.




How to reduce the effects of stress on your skin



  • Exercise regularly. As mentioned above, stress induces the release of stress hormones that have negative effects on the skin. and exercise can help reduce levels of stress hormones and stimulate the production of endorphins which are the body’s natural painkillers and mood elevators.


Exercise may slow the aging of the skin. One study showed that aerobic exercise stimulates the release of interleukin 15 (IL-15) which regulates skin aging by enhancing mitochondrial biogenesis in the skin.


  • Do something you enjoy. Doing something you enjoy is good for our physical and mental health. People with hobbies are less likely to experience stress and depression. Activities make you feel happier and more relaxed. Being happy is the most important thing in our life. It can heal or at least aid in addressing many troubles.



  • Intermittent pneumatic compression. When stress makes it difficult for your body to fight off toxins and control inflammation, intermittent pneumatic compression can help improve lymphatic drainage, remove toxins, and reduce inflammation. It is also a great way to relax your body and mind by providing improved blood circulation and ultimate body massage.
