If you don’t already know you do now; anxiety and stress can do a number on your skin. Excessive anxiety can in fact have a major impact on your skin. And the worst part is, the more you stress and obsess over it the worse it will continue to get. Anxiety has also been known to specifically cause hormonal acne. Hormonal acne occurs along the jawline and also near the neck. To make matters worse, hormonal acne can result in painful cystic acne. It is important that you don’t pick at your cystic acne. This can interfere with the healing process also as you are placing bacteria onto the pimples when you are touching them. It is also important that you try not to obsess over your acne in the mirror as this will make you want to touch your face more and then result in picking. The good thing about this is that your skin can go back to normal once your anxiety is reduced. Getting to the root of your anxiety will be important in reducing acne on your skin since anxiety does link to breakouts. It takes about a month to 45 days for your skin to regenerate new cells and skin. So, you can expect to gain better results after a month that’s if your anxiety becomes reduced and more manageable.
Aside from reducing your anxiety and stress something you can do before coming to visit us at Mederm Esthetics & Laser clinic is not touching your face, not picking your skin, using a cleanser and moisturizer for your skin every morning and evening, and if you are experiencing pain due to your cystic acne try icing the area to numb the pain. Also, you can apply tea tree oil to the affected area if you have any. But remember to not use it excessively as it can try out your skin resulting in more breakouts. Only apply a
small amount to the affected area.
