Don't stress about acne, Dr. S has the answers!
Question: It's finals week. How do I fight stress-related acne?
Answer: Stress-related breakouts are caused by a spike in cortisol, the stress hormone. While finals are a stressful and busy time, taking a few minutes to practice stress-reducing techniques can help reduce those cortisol levels.
Go for a walk, get exercise, eat balanced, nutritious meals, and try to keep a regular sleep schedule (I know that one's hard). It's also important to stick with your skincare rountine - taking that extra minute to wash the day's oils and bacteria away will drastically reduce breakouts.
