5 Stressed Skin Solutions To Soothe And Restore Your Complexion

Stressed skin solutions to soothe and restore.

Skin prone to stress breakouts? Don’t worry it’s really common, and we’re here to help. Everyday life, politics, work, and lack of sleep can lead to stress and anxiety, causing a cortisol spike in your body – perfectly fine if the anxiety is short-term. If this anxiety becomes more of a long-term issue, lasting for days, weeks, or months at a time, these elevated cortisol levels can lead to stress-induced flare-ups on your skin, landing you in a seemingly unending cycle of stress acne, stress relief skincare treatments, and more breakouts.

Along with a flooding of cortisol, the stresses of modern lifestyles can also trigger the release of Substance P – a neurotransmitter in the nerve endings of the skin. An influx of Substance P causes the oil glands in your skin to overproduce sebum, which can lead to clogged pores, inflammation, and skin breakouts. Not fun, but a warning to slow down, make more time for self-care, and invest in stressed skin products to kick acne to the curb, boost your mood, and brighten your skin.  

To reduce the stress of trawling for something to calm your inflamed skin, we’ve compiled a handy list of the best products for stressed skin, making it quick and simple to get your skin glowing again, boosting your self-esteem, and hopefully banishing future breakouts.
