Does stress cause acne or does acne cause stress? Here it is, another of those, which came first the chicken or the egg.

The way we can look at stress causing acne is that it can be an indicator of what is going on in your body. Stress can stimulate the adrenal glands, which in turn produces certain hormones, which can create the formation of acne. When stress hits your bodies it has been proven that decreases your bodies ability to healing and the first hit for that is the immune system and the second is the effect on acne.

Another thing to note is that stress also affects and worsens your overall skin condition, so for those of us that are wanting to look younger and to not have aging faces, this is a really good thing to remember, when those stress flairs go up, practice all of our de-spressing things like, meditating, going out into nature, practice a few yoga possess, listen to some favorite music, call friend that loves to laugh with you.

It has been said that stess doesn't real cause acne, it just accelerates it and promotes the lack of well being in our bodies. In the end stress can lead to acne and this is why so many teenagers have tendencies for acne, their stress levels and hormone balances are very high.

We have talked about the subject of inflammation in many of these articles and acne is another form of this inflammation, and the main culprit is stress and the chemical reaction stress has on your body, and the worst part of it is it is so visible to others, you can't hid it like a stomach ache, diabetes, heart disease, it is right out there for everyone that looks at you to see.
