Stress and the skin

The brain connects the body with nervous system. A lot of nerve endings end up to the skin. Psychological stress can be express through the skin. Stress compromise skin blood circulation causing dry skin. Stress hormones production increases, immune system overreactive and makes skin more sensitive and reactive. It makes the skin problems worse such as acne, psoriasis and eczma etc. Prolonged stress also causes immune dysfunction, increased production of reactive oxygen species, and DNA damage accelerates skin aging. Stress causes agitation. When agitated, one may scratch the skin making areas of thickened skin on the body. For example, patients with eczema and psoriasis often feel more itchy and scratching more when stressed. Scratching causes the release of inflammatory chemicals, causing more and more itching that can get you stuck in a vicious cycle.
