Acne

Are you suddenly getting acne you weren’t getting before? When you’re stressed, you release cortisol, which can interfere with other hormones in your body and cause breakouts on your face, back and other parts of your body.

Fix: Take deep breaths, drink plenty of water and eat healthy foods like high quality proteins, fruits and vegetables.

Dry Skin

Making sure you drink enough water is great for your skin and when you’re not keeping hydrated, your skin lets you know. Often when you’re stressed your go-to-drink is anything with caffeine. You’re looking for a drink that gives you the energy to keep up, so make sure you’re drinking plenty of water.

Fix: Drink plenty of water–green tea is also great for a boost of healthy antioxidants; also eat fruits and vegetables with high water content to get beautifully hydrated skin.
