With our hectic modern-day lifestyles and with more and more worries and stresses mounting upon us everyday, it’s no wonder many of us feel worn out and tired all the time. The link between our brains and our skin is not new, but people don’t realise that scores of cases of problem skin are due to stress.

It is well known that stress can cause premature ageing, but it can also cause unnecessary outbreaks of acne. It is suggested here that “When you are stressed, the brain releases chemicals that affect the skin biology and when this changes the structure of the skin, it will result in dermatitis, eczema and acne,” said clinical psychologist Dr Alvin Ng Lai Oon.

Being happy and having positive goals is the first step to tackling skin problems, and you can read our resident expert Peter Beard’s advice here.
