Is Stress / Many Thoughts Can Cause Acne?
Good Morning Doctor, I want to ask whether the problem is the emergence of pimples, if the cleansing is appropriate and regularly cleaned but acne still appears even though it wasn’t? Is it because of most thoughts or because you’re in love?
Hello Nita! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Stress does play a role in the formation of zits, but does not directly cause the appearance of zits. Stress can make our adrenal glands stimulate oil glands to produce more oil. The excess oil can be a good tool for the growth of bacteria on the skin, resulting in acne. Stress can also inhibit the delivery of nutrients to the skin, so acne on the skin becomes more difficult to recover. If falling in love makes you stressed and anxious, of course it will also affect the formation of acne. If falling in love reduces your stress, maybe your zits will actually reduce. Taking deep breaths, doing physical activities (such as yoga or morning jogging), and getting enough sleep can help reduce stress and control the adrenal glands so that they are functioning normally again. You should also reduce your consumption of caffeine (including soda, coffee, tea and chocolate) and sugar. Stay in good skin care and avoid washing your face too often because it can actually make your face dry. If your acne is very large and difficult to control, you should see a dermatologist.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
