Lower Your Stress Level

Stress causes skin to turn red and can exacerbate inflammatory conditions like psoriasis and atopic dermatitis.

Plus, Japanese researchers recently found that the skin’s barrier may be compromised during high-tension times, which opens the door to dryness.

Short-term solution: Soak a cloth in equal parts skim milk and cool water, then wring out and drape over skin. Air-dry, then apply moisturizer. But nothing will really change if you don’t alleviate anxiety. A tip: Stay off social media after a crazy day. A new study found that frequent Facebook users who surfed the network after feeling under pressure sustained higher levels of cortisol (your stress hormone) than those who read quietly. Proof that it’s worth logging off for future #nofilter selfies.
