The connection between hormonal acne & stress

Hormonal acne is a very common symptom of PCOS, we all know that. BUT Did you know.... increased levels of stress can cause abnormality in hormone levels? Which in turn causes you to break out more? When you stress more, your body goes into fight 🤜 or flight 🏃‍♀️mode! Causing more stress chemicals (cortisol, neuro-peptides) to release. Now this causes more oil production in your skin, hence the acne⚠️ Now you know, why on the days of parties, events, important meetings & exams your pimple friends make their visit!!
