Anxious Acne

So, your teen years are just an adolescent memory. Yet you look in the mirror and find … acne. Does this stress you out? Well that could be part of your problem.

Increases in adult acne have now been linked to an increase in stress. When you’re under stress, a hormone is secreted in the same skin glands that produce oils and plug your pores. The debate continues on the connection between anxiety and acne, but this new scientific evidence convinces me.

Whether you are a teen — or just tense, acne may be an issue. And your family physician or dermatologist can help.

If stress is a problem, now may be the time to work on controlling it.

Clear your mind — and you might clear your skin as well.
