Q. I try to manage stress as best as I can, but I think it’s starting to affect my skin. What should I do?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
In today’s fast paced world, we’re always on the go—with added stress to boot. Everyday environmental aggressors, hormones and diet are all contributing factors to frazzled skin. Signs of stressed skin show up in various ways, from dehydration and dryness to irritation and redness. Heck, even breakouts can arise. Signs of aging can also become more apparent when skin is under stress. Definitely not what anyone wants to deal with.
