Stress Pimples And How To Get Rid Of Them
Our skin is very delicate and it’s often influenced by a number of different factors. One of those factors is our hormones. The hormones within our body control the amount of oil that our skin produces. This oil production takes place within our pores. Don’t worry, there’s a point that I’m trying to make here. Having proper hormonal balance is part of the equation if you want nice skin. Has stress levels increase, our bodies tend to produce more oil and sebum production kicks into high gear.
Ded skin cells and oil packed pores are the perfect recipes for a pimple breakout! You need to know how to treat your skin in order to best avoid this issue.
Preventing Stress Pimples From Forming
I’m a huge advocate of prevention. I’ve always operated like this with regards to personal health, fitness, and overall well-being, the same goes keeping my skin nice looking. Prevention can be as simple as attempting to reduce your stress levels. If there are areas in your life that seem to be causing more stress than others, I encourage you to evaluate them and attempt to change things.
You can start by exercising daily and eating nothing but healthy foods. Consistency is key regardless of what you decide to do to reduce your stress levels. I’ve shared my personal diet, I suggest you try it out for a few weeks.
On top of that, you can prevent stress pimples from forming by cleansing your skin regularly. Doing so will help further prevent pores from clogging with bacteria and oil.
Let’s get back to exercising since I’m such a strong advocate for this. I recommend doing some physical activity at least four times per week and doing in at a strenuously enough level to which you’re physically sweating. It helps reduce stress levels, improve your circulation, unclog pores and more.
You’ll love to hear this one, get some more sleep! Believe it or not, sleeping is great for you and if you’re not getting enough of it, then it might be part of the problem. When possible, try to sneak in a quick 20-30 minute nap during the day. Be sure to also get plenty of sleep every night.
Have you tried incorporating witch hazel into your routine? Using this as a toner post cleansing can help further regulate oil production. Not to mention, it simply ensures that your skin is as clean as can be!
If you have a gym or spa membership, then I suggest finding out of they have a sauna. Hitting the sauna a couple times each week can really help you clear your skin up. It opens your pores, increases circulation and as an added bonus it’s pretty darn relaxing to boot.
I also recommend taking fish oil supplements. I buy the Vitamin Shoppe brand because they are potent and affordable. You can buy any kind that you’d like. The reason to take these is to help better regulate your hormones.
In the event that you have a bad breakout area, you can try applying a clay mask to help make it disappear. It’s not a guarantee, but it does work quite well most of the time.
Last but not least, I want you to take a very close look at your day to day schedule. Determine whether or not it’s too much for you to handle or if there is something you can do to reduce the number of tasks that you need to get done daily. Your schedule is directly related to your stress levels (most often) and having a well planned out schedule definitely helps eliminate the stress factor.
Treating Stress Pimples
The same steps can be taken to treat stress pimples as to prevent them from forming. However, in some cases, when you have bad breakouts, you might want to connect with a local physician or dermatologist. The reason I say this is due to the fact that science is on your side, for the most part. Professionals have the ability to better examine and diagnose your condition better than you think. There are medicines that you can take to reduce your stress and anxiety levels. There are activities which a professional can recommend or prescribe you to partake in on a daily basis.
What’s most important here is that you do whatever you have to in order to help clear up your skin. Taking zero action won’t get you anywhere! Don’t even think that it’s an option!
