It seems like we break out at the worst possible times. Between work, school, and your personal life, it seems almost impossible to escape the stress from one thing or another. When we become stressed out our bodies react to it negatively. One of these ways is our skin breaking out. Many of us have experienced stress acne, and it seems some what difficult to subdue it. The immune system is directly effected when we are under stress. The skin is our bodies largest organ, and like the rest of our body, is connected to the mind. When we become stressed out our bodies send blood and oxygen to other parts of the body to fight the stress off. This in turn leaves parts of the skin depleted of the blood and oxygen. This causes the skin to breakout, clog, become dull and dehydrated.
