It is no shock that along with all the recent stress, we can be experiencing more breakouts. We are taking care of kids and parents, cooking seven days a week and churning out work emails and spreadsheets. Our stress levels are up and our hormones are in high speed.
Increase Oil Production
When we are stressed our hormone levels increase and our oil production goes into over drive. When we are between the ages of 15 and 35, our sebaceous glands increase in size and we secrete the most sebum. When the sebum mixes with the dead skin cells within the pores they can cause blockage, which is acne. The sebum-filled pores are an ideal place for bacteria to live and even colonize, which can even worsen our condition.
The At-Home Peel Solution

In worse case scenarios, picking can cause the pimple’s bacteria to spread through vulnerable areas like your nose and lips, entering your bloodstream.
