Stress and Acne

When we are stressed our blood sugar and insulin levels rise to ensure that the body organs deal with the stress. However this action is a protection mechanism that helps to handle stress, but it may have a negative impact as well. Stress causes a serious increase in inflammatory chemicals at a cellular level which can lead to acne.
We also need to know that during the rise of sugar levels of our bodies, hormones are produced to help mediate this process.
So if you already have acne or just acne prone skin it is vital that you find ways to eliminate or at least to reduce physical and psychological stress that is indeed directly correlated with breakouts.

Certain ingredients like Chamomile and Aloe Vera help soothing skin while preventing external stress. O3+ Aloe Derma Hydrating Gel calms the skin from within while reducing any form of imperfection. In case the acne has developed more, try the O3+ Agelock Acnesis Serum. Cleansing with O3+ Chamomile Cleansing Lotion or Seaweed Cleansing Gel daily at night helps keeping skin relaxed and clean. A O3+ Chamomile mask that is known for its jelly like texture helps soothe and calm skin while boosting glow leading to internal satisfaction.
