Everyone experiences stress from time to time. However, long-term stress is not just detrimental to your health but it can also have consequences for your skin, nails and hair. In times of stress the sebaceous glands produce more testosterone receptors than normal, causing an increase in sebum production. The skin becomes oily and impure, especially in the T-zone because it has more sebaceous glands.
A stress-sensitive person is more susceptible to outbreaks of skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. A healthy diet and enough sleep and relaxation can help to battle these disorders.
