Don’t Stress About Your Skin!

by | Jul 20, 2017 | 0 comments

We all know our skin is really important to us.

A recent report by the British Association of Dermatologists found that 90% of patients with a skin disease also suffer psychological problems which are related to their condition.

It is well known that there is a close association between the brain and our skin.  For example a lack of confidence, depression or stress can lead to a worsening of any skin disorders.  In turn such disorders can themselves lead to psychological problems.

The result is a vicious self-perpetuating cycle.

It is important that we recognise the significance of skin disorders to the sufferer.  Being told ‘it’s only acne’ really doesn’t help.  To the sufferer it is a major issue.

In addition there are secondary effects which can also be debilitating.  Itching skin, for example, can lead to scratching which in turn may result in a disturbed night’s sleep.

Fortunately there are plenty of resources and treatments available for people with skin disorders.  If you have such a problem, stay calm and take advantage of the professional help available.
