Does stress cause acne in teenagers and adults?

According to a research published on the Achieves of Dermatology in 2003 found that acne in students was more likely to get worse during exams (a period of time when the stress levels elevate significantly). This suggests that stress may have a role to worsen acne.

But it’s still not clear yet whether stress does have an effect to cause acne. Because in fact, not all people with stress (both teenagers and adults) develop acne!

How does stress affect acne?

Experts still don’t have the answer with certainty of how this emotional problem affects acne. But they do know that skin cells are sensitive to stress. And stress may make sebum more likely!

Sebum is oily property in the skin can mix with dead skin cells and sometimes with bacteria. More sebum that you have – more likely to have clogged skin pores which may provoke acne!

Moreover during stressful period, you are likely to squeeze your pimple. This can exacerbate your blemishes. Even squeezing mild acne can be potential to cause terrible scars!

Does stress management help relieve acne?

Yes, it does – but typically it doesn’t work alone, and the improvement may vary from person to person. While managing stress can help significantly treat acne in some people, others don’t!

Other appropriate treatments and home remedies (such regular exercise, getting plenty of sleep, and a well-balanced diet) are also vital to provide a quickly healing and to restore the health of your skin.
