Stress and nerves can result in acne breakouts

nerves and acne

Ever notice how your skin seems to breakout right before a big event like a job interview? It’s not a coincidence. Simply put, stress is terrible for your body — and that includes your skin.

Nerves and acne go hand in hand. Stress raises levels of cortisol, which increases inflammation and causes oil glands to go into overdrive – potentially causing acne breakouts. While completely avoiding stress is impossible, you can improve your skin (and overall well-being) by meditating, relaxing, spending time with animals, or doing anything else that calms you.
