Life can be demanding. Our normal day is filled with lots of potential stressors – work, finances, personal relationships. To make matters worse, you’re never really “unplugged,” because technological advancements ensure that you’re constantly connected, robbing you of the precious “downtime” you need to rejuvenate.
Stress affects our lives in a lot of different ways, physically and mentally. While many of those negative effects are well-known – weight gain, sleep problems, heart disease, depression, etc. – you may not realize that it’s also wreaking havoc on your skin.
Stress can manifest itself as blemishes, hives, rashes, fever blisters and premature aging. The good news is that you can control stress by managing your response to it.
