Do you know stress affects your skin?

Stress is no introduction especially in these fast-paced times. But do you know stress affects your skin? Well, the answer is a very big YES!

Dr Jaishree Sharad discussed the same in a video titled “Stress and Skin”.

In the Instagram video, the dermatologist says that stress could be anything that’s making you overthink, anxious, or unhappy. There could be physical stress as well in the form of surgery, trauma, or accident.

Dr Jaishree Sharad explained that stress can cause hyperpigmentation, early aging, patchy and uneven skin tone, dry skin, acne, and dark circles, especially when you don’t sleep well. You may experience itching and different allergic reactions, she said. Sometimes “nerve endings in the skin release mediators that cause itching when you are stressed”.

“Hypothalamus will then release the Corticotropin-releasing hormone. This hormone will send signals to the pituitary gland located in the brain to release another hormone called Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH),” she said.

“These will then go down to the kidneys to the adrenal glands and these adrenal glands will release cortisol hormone,” the doctor said.

“Your existing skin conditions like psoriasis, Atopic dermatitis, Urticarias, eczema will exacerbate. This is all because of this entire play of hormones,” she said.
