Dehydrated skin is possibly the most common skin condition around. As we grow older, our skins constantly change. During your puberty years your skin type is most likely oily due to overactive hormonal production. In your middle to late twenties your general skin type is normal to combination with an oily t-panel. Then something happens. Yes, you guessed it, STRESS!
Feeling stressed-out? Here’s why.
Usually by your 30’s, you are adulating well. You have a proper job, your dinner plate may be looking more colorful with actual vegetables, as compared to your junkfood teenage years. You may be working out even. With this though, comes extra responsibilities.
The dirty thirties are also the age group that gets married, have car payments and mortgages to pay. Going out is definitely not as exciting as it may have been a few years before. A cosy night in bed watching series now gets your juices flowing.
How does stress affect your skin?
Stress can play havoc with your skin. Even though it is an emotional and internal issue, it will always manifest on the skin. In more extreme cases it can trigger eczema and psoriasis flare-ups, even itchy rashes . Stress is also be the reason why you are experiencing dehydrated skin.
Fact: Dehydrated skin looks oily and feels dry at the same time.
The reason why this occurs is because a body under stress shunts blood flow away from the peripheral organs, such as the skin. This action is a protective measure to provide energy to muscles and the brain, and the result of this homeostatic action is dehydrated skin.
Stress also causes an inflammatory response in the body and leads to pores becoming clogged and acne breakouts. The adrenal glands, key organs that control the stress hormones cortisol and adrenalin, go into overdrive. This leads to the release of more androgens (male hormones), which in turn leads to more spots!
