Beat Stress and Look Beautiful pg1

- COSMO

As you know, in crazy-busy times, you can end up not only feeling like a mess but looking like one, too. Here, we explain the specific ways your appearance takes a beating when you’re worried or under pressure – as well as strategies on how to fight back so you can feel great and look like a total fox.

Murphy’s Law as applied to beauty: Whenever you have a lot of big-deal events – whether they’re high-profile work meetings or back-to-back social obligations – you seem to start sprouting pimple colonies. The reason: Stress causes a flood of the flight-or-fight hormone cortisol into your bloodstream which helps you perform under pressure. But an elevated amount of cortisol leads to the production of a type of testosterone that increases your skin’s oil production and leads to acne, says Audrey Kunin, dermatologist.
