Does Stress Lead You to Get More Spots?

When You're Stressed, Does It Affect Your Skin?

Appearance makes us more anxious than we might think. When we polled you last week about the things that stress you out the most, bad skin came in third, just behind work and finances, but ahead of love life and family.

It's no surprise to us that our biggest organ can be responsible for so much stress and worry, but it can cause a vicious cycle if stress itself causes our skin to chuck a tanty. With this in mind we want to know how stress shows itself on your face. Do you find that you get a bout of breakouts if you're under the pump? Or does you skin take on a kind of greige tone if you're worried about something?
