3. Are You Stressing a Lot?

People who have a lot of stress also have the greatest increase in acne severity.

Stress not only influences acne breakouts, it aggravates your overall skin health.

The adrenal glands produce excessive amounts of cortisol, a steroid, which then makes sebaceous glands excrete more oil and make skin even oilier.2

When you stress more, you get more acne, which can stress you out and create a vicious cycle.

Try to control your stress to help reduce the number of breakouts you have.
