Have you ever noticed how when you are stressed out about work, friends, or life in general, your skin would suddenly break out?
The more stressed out you are, the worse your skin will look. So how to maintain healthy skin when you’re stressed? Try these tips:
– Try to control your stress as best you can by thinking through the things that are worrying you
– It can be a challenge to find time to go through all the steps of your usual skin care routine but cleansing twice a day is a must
– Exercise regularly. Exercise improves blood flow and normalizes hormone levels, which will keep skin healthy and smooth.
