Stress Relief Tool – Take Care of Your Skin

Your skin is your billboard to the outside world.

Have you ever noticed that your skin breaks out more when you’re stressed? Anxiety causes a chemical response that makes your skin more sensitive. Your body also produces more cortisol when stressed, which causes your sebaceous glands to produce more oil. More oil means oily skin that is prone to acne.

Taking an extra few minutes before you go to bed to wash your face and remove any facial products and makeup you’ve worn during the day will make a world of difference. If you’re prone to oily or dry skin, choose skin care products that are specifically designed for your skin type.1

Because your skin is your billboard to the outside world, it’s important not to neglect your skin-care routine, especially when you’re stressed and tired. Your skin will thank you for it.
