Cortisol and its effects on the skin

Do you know that this famous stress hormone, cortisol, which I have been talking to you about for a few videos, can be the cause of your skin problems?

Different skin types

For oily skin, stress stimulates the sebaceous glands which intensify the production of sebum. Pores clog, bacteria proliferate and pimples multiply.
For other skin types, stress can also affect the skin's ability to retain water, making it dry and dehydrated.


It can also affect scalp health and cause diffuse or localized hair loss by increasing the production of certain hormones, such as testosterone.

Chronic stress can accelerate the aging process of the skin due to an increase in free radicals and a decrease in the synthesis of collagen and elastin. This results in a loss of elasticity and sagging skin.


Act on our stress

Regardless of your age, to act on the quality of your skin do not just take collagen and apply appropriate creams; you must first manage your chronic stress which causes wrinkles and loss of elasticity and radiance of the skin.
