Skin Care Tips for Stressed Out Skin

Jan 20, 2015 | Blog, Skin Care

Skin_CareJanuary tends to be a stressful month! The holidays are over; everyone is back at work and trying to stay on track with their fitness goals. Our emotional well-being can affect how we look on the outside. Stress can make the skin more sensitive and irritate existing skin care conditions.
Stress can take a toll on your complexion, here are 4 signs that your skin is stressed out.


When you are stressed out, you may neglect your skin care regimen or eat foods that can cause you to breakout. Stress increases the inflammation that leads to acne. The key is to exfoliate to unclog pores, remove dead skin and then hydrate with a moisturizer. There are several acne treatments at North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care clinic that can help with acne and scars.


Stress can cause redness and may trigger flushing, known as rosacea. Since stress weakens the immune system, the inflammation may be more persistent and last longer. A PhotoFacial can help rejuvenate the skin, improve complexion and dramatically erase redness or rosacea.


Suffering from itchy and dry skin? Stress may be the culprit. When you are stressed out you also become dehydrated which can result with sensitivity, flaking, peeling, redness, rosacea and eczema.  It is important to drink plenty of fluids, moisturize  and stay away from hot water since it strips skin’s oils.


Stress keeps us up at night! Whether we toss and turn all night or can’t shut our brains off, the next morning you can see the affect it has on your skin. The best remedy for puffiness and tired eyes is making sure you get a good night sleep.
It is essential to find ways to manage your stress. At North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care clinic we offer acupuncture and facials that can help you relax. If the stress has already taken a toll on your skin, make an appointment for a free consultation with one of our skin care professionals.
