When you are stressed regardless of cause the body’s response to stress sets off an inflammatory reaction and spikes cortisol levels, which may trigger concerns on your complexion. Cortisol is needed to activate the body when it is under stress enabling you to get through situations that are known as the fight-or-flight. This inflammation may weaken the barrier function of the skin, causing redness, dullness, flakiness, breakouts, tired eyes, fine lines, and wrinkles and slowing the regeneration process.
