The Impact of Stress on Skin Health

February 28, 2023

Did you know that stress plays a role in the following conditions?

  1. Acne
  2. Eczema
  3. Psoriasis
  4. Hair Loss
  5. Rosacea
  6. Pre-mature aging

Acute and chronic stress cause changes in our hormones that can alter inflammation, sebum production, digestion, immune functioning, and wound healing. All of these factors contribute to flares in many common skin conditions. Often, these flares can result in more stress, which can exacerbate the cycle.

If you struggle with any of these conditions and deal with stress often, it’s time to support your mind and body by breaking this cycle. Through a holistic lens, naturopathic medicine can support your stress levels through lifestyle changes, acupuncture, supplements, and herbal support. Additionally, topical and internal skin treatments can be utilized to get your skin clearer, faster.
