Surely many of you suffer from stress constantly in your day to day, but you may not be recognizing the effects that living in such a busy way has on your skin.
It is possible that for many people, suffering from stress is not related to changes in their physical appearance, but others can cause skin rashes, acne, hair loss or weight changes, among others. Today we will focus on the effects that stress has on the skin.
Effects of stress on the skin
As we have commented previously, stress can affect those who suffer it physically and mentally.
One of the parts of the body where this effect is most reflected is the skin, and it can affect you in numerous ways, here are some of the most common:
Urticaria caused by stress
Emotional stress can be associated with an outbreak of hives that can trigger a skin rash. This is due to hormonal imbalances or chemical changes that our body makes in response to a state of stress.
Hives appear as small red bumps that can appear anywhere on the body. The individual notices how the affected area itches constantly and even, sometimes, a burning sensation may be noticed.
Psoriasis and eczema get worse with stress
Suffering from stress can make existing skin problems heal worse, such as psoriasis and eczema.
Adult acne due to stress
Stress, accompanied by an inadequate diet and hormonal imbalances are factors that produce an alteration in the production of skin oil and with it the appearance of acne, even if it had not been suffered in adolescence.
To avoid this, it is recommended to keep the skin clean and use specific care products.
How to prevent stress from affecting the skin?
A large part of the population suffers from stress very regularly caused by work or personal situations that are difficult to avoid.
Our recommendation to improve your state is that you introduce small habits in your day to day that make you escape from stressful situations, such as exercising regularly and following a balanced diet. This will help improve the condition of your skin and make you feel much better.
Hygiene of the skin is very important in these cases, remember the importance of cleaning the skin and treating it with specific products for the diseases that may have been carried out.
You can also combat stress with therapy or relaxation techniques to help your mind evade these problems.
