STRESS AND ACNE CYCLES

There are two ways stress can cause breakouts:

    1. The delayed cycle in which breakouts appear 14 days to 1 month after the onset of stress.
    2. The immediate cycle in which breakouts appear immediately following a moment of stress (ex.a big event, a competition, a test etc).

DELAYED CYCLE

Stress signals the adrenal glands to produce excess hormones which aggravates breakouts.


IMMEDIATE CYCLE
