STRESS INDUCED ACNE.
Stress induced acne is caused by (hello obvious) stress. There is a difinitive link between stress and acne, which becomes exacerbated when your body is under pressure. Stress caused hormone changes effect your health in many ways, one of the unfortunate outcomes can be your skin health. Cortisol and androgen are hormones secreted by the endocrine system in response to stress. These hormones escalate the production of sebum, an oily substance naturally produced by glands near skin hair follicles. Increased sebum plus high levels of Propionibacterium acnes, a bacteria that lives on human skin and feeds off sebum, creates an ideal catalyst for inflamed skin/breakouts.
HOW TO TREAT STRESS INDUCED ACNE.
Unfortunately, stress is unavoidable but there are steps you can take to help counteract the negative affects on your skin health. Try meditation, stress management techniques and also in addition, eat healthy meals that are good for your gut bacteria. This will help combat any changes to your gut that stem from stress. Now, the most important line of defense or treatment is a diligent at home skincare routine. And If you want to boost your acne fighting power and get even closer to clear, glowing skin there are many fantastic professional treatments available at our clinic. more about professional acne treatments >>
