What Happens to Skin under Chronic Stress?

Stress makes the skin more sensitive and more reactive which can lead to a variety of skin issues. When you are under high levels of stress, your body produces more cortisol.

Cortisol is a stress hormone that increases skin’s oil production. More oil on your skin can create a breeding ground for bacteria which can lead to variety of skin problems. Also, extra cortisol lowers the immune function, increase blood pressure and in some cases lead to weight gain.

Collagen is the most plentiful protein in the skin that makes about 75% of your skin. Collagen and elastin are responsible for warding off wrinkles and fine lines. Chronic stress reduces body’s natural ability to produce collagen.
