From Dermatologist Dr. Adam Geyer
Q: What is the relationship between stress and the skin (our body’s largest organ)?
A: The skin contains a network of nerve fibers, which after stimulated from stress signals, induce inflammation and heightened skin irritation.
Q: What are the short-term effects of stress on the skin?
A: Inflammation leads to visible signs of stress on skin, resulting in redness, flareups, blotchiness, and general discomfort.
Q: What are the long-term effects of stress on the skin?
A: Stress gradually weakens our skin barrier, which makes it harder for the skin to heal itself, resulting in dehydration, fatigue, and premature skin aging. It also makes skin more susceptible to future stress episodes.
Q: How do we break the stress cycle?
A: Our first defense is to treat, calm, and hydrate the skin. Utilizing highly efficient ingredients, Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer Stress-Minimizing Daily Hydrator helps to address and reduce skin’s visible response to stress.
