My Skin is Stressed...

Your skin can have a variety of reactions to stress: from pimples, rosacea, eczema and splotches to rashes and dryness.
The following are common effects of stress on your skin:

1. Skin Flare-Ups: Stress can increase oil production with can cause pimples, redness and rashes to develop.

2. Dryness and Dullness: Stress can reduce skin's moisture creating a breeding ground for dead skin cells to accumulate which results in a dry and dull complexion.

3. Eczema: Those affected by eczema tend to notice more flare-ups when stress is high.

The skin is the first and best indicator that you're under some sort of stress. A well balanced diet, plenty of water, adequate sleep and regular exercise can help your body cope with stress and its effects on skin.
