With School Coming up, How Can I Control My Stress Acne?

With School Coming up, How Can I Control My Stress Acne?

School is just around the corner, and you’re probably bracing yourself for the stress of homework, tests and getting good grades. If you’re like many people, adding stress to your life inevitably leads to acne breakouts. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. Here’s how to build a skincare routine that will help you control stress acne.

Cleanse Daily 

When you’re constantly feeling rushed, it’s easy to skip important steps in your skincare routine. However, if you want your skin to remain healthy during the school year, it’s imperative to cleanse it daily. Make sure you choose a cleanser that’s gentle on the skin and doesn’t use harsh ingredients to strip it of nutrients. Look for natural cleansers that rely on nourishing ingredients to remove impurities. 

Moisturize Intentionally 

Moisturizer is essential for stressed-out skin. You may feel like you don’t need it, since excessive stress tends to send your own oil production into overdrive. However, you can trigger your body to ease up on its own oil production by providing it with adequate hydration from an outside source. In addition to standard moisturizers, use serums and oils to deliver hydration to your skin. Look for Squalane Oil for sale, or turn to other natural oils that create a protective barrier for the skin. Squalane oil for acne is one of the best ingredients you can use. 

Protect Your Skin 

Most commercial sunscreens do more harm than good for your skin because they contain a variety of toxic chemicals. However, you still need to protect your skin from UV rays in order to minimize stress acne and keep it healthy and supple. Fortunately, there are natural products that can not only protect the skin from UV rays, but heal and repair it after sun exposure. Hyaluronic acid serum is just one of these products. Hyaluronic acid for acne can help prevent breakouts and soothe irritated skin so you can face the school year with confidence.

There are so many fun pairings in life, a chilled glass of crisp rosé with a fresh green salad, high waisted jeans with a colorful midriff top, a smoky eye with a neutral lip. But when it comes to skincare, the risk of layering or pairing the wrong ingredients together can leave lasting, skin-deep effects. Breakouts, rashes, redness and excessive peeling and flaking are just some of the pitfalls of bad pairings!  

With the growing number of concentrated, active ingredient products on the market, it’s a good idea to know which products work best together, and which to avoid. Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C are some of the most popular skincare ingredients on the market right now. But should we be using them together, and if so, how should we layer HA and Vitamin C?
