Some people report that their skin condition gets so much worse when they are under stress.

Blemishes and spots and soreness are not caused by stress alone, the most commonly-held understanding is that this can be related to hormone activity. At around puberty, hormones, predominantly testosterone – produced by males and females, are produced in large amounts.

They trigger the skin to produce more natural oils, skin pores can become blocked and bacteria from the surface trapped inside. This causes the inflammation that leads to blemishes and the formation of zits at the surface. All the more reason to use Skinetica twice-daily!

Skinetica forms a bacteria-fighting layer close to the skin. The bacteria principally involved in blemish formation is Propionibacterium acnes. Skinetica is a special side-effect free treatment which is especially suited for all skintypes, as it is oil-free. It targets P.Acnes and goes on working for up to 12 hours. Take some of the stress out of dealing with troublesome skin by using Skinetica in your skincare routine.

Stress and constant blemishes and soreness

When we are stressed then the body can be induced into producing more hormones, and it is not surprising that issues can arise. Especially in the years following puberty and on into adulthood. Some people are still affected with the occasional outbreak of blemishes on into their 30’s an 40’s.

During puberty the sheer complexity of growing up and dealing with the world as your body and moods change is stressful by itself, then there are specific examples of things that raise emotional stress:

  • Anxiety over a big event, a wedding or performance
  • School exams and tests
  • Bullying
  • Relationship problems
  • Family issues
  • Overwhelming workload
  • The health of a pet
  • The loss of a loved on

You can increase stress levels at a physical level too:

  • Frequent, demanding team sports or individual sports
  • Exercise without building in adequate resting time
  • Lack of sleep
  • Packing lots of events in to every evening, every day
  • Drinking too much
  • Smoking/drugs
  • Being too overweight for good health
  • Little or no physical exercise

Does stress affect women more than men?

When we experience stress, our adrenal glands go into overdrive. Androgens (male hormones), which this gland produces, increase in level. Higher androgen levels can lead to more acne. This is especially true in women, who produce a much larger percentage of their androgens in the adrenal glands than do men. This may explain why stress seems to affect women more than men when it comes to skin condition.

People prone to having skin blemishes, have skin that develops clogged pores that you can’t even see until they are inflamed. Stress causes an inflammatory response in the body and can make your immune system attack the pores to deal with any bacteria or fragments of skin trapped in them. This is a perfectly natural process. You cannot catch this from anyone else, nor can you pass it on. When this immune response happens, then redness around the pore, and an buildup of pus (a zit) can form.

Skinetica is your real friend when it comes to dealing with these inflamed areas. It’s not just the face that can be affected. Inflammation in and under the skin surface, can form – and Skinetica can be safely applied twice a day – to the back, neck, shoulders indeed anywhere except broken or damaged skin.
