Hey does anyone know how stress affects your skin. For about the last year I have been emotionally back and forth and I've noticed that this affects my skin immensely. To start, when I am extremely stressed by something emotional, my skin gets really dry and looses its glow, the pores on my face will enlarge and my skin texture will change. This may be weird but it's something that I have notice about my skin as of recently. I felt great last week and my skin looked amazing.
