It’s been stressful lately! And that stress can show up in unexpected ways, including on your skin. Anxiety and fear, which have become pretty regular feelings for a lot of us given the current situation, trigger a fight or flight response in your body. This fight or flight response releases cortisone, a stress hormone, that increases oil production. This means clogged pores, dull complexion and maybe even breakouts.
So, you’ve been doing your part to help keep our planet clean and healthy. Reusable water bottle? Check. Skipping the daily shampoo? Check. Bringing your own shopping bag to the supermarket? Check. What about your beauty products? Looking for brands that use sustainable and recyclable materials? We hope so.

sunshine. Staying in also gives us the opportunity to practice self-love in the
form of self-skincare. So, hunker down and give yourself a TLC “Better Me” day.
Here are a few ideas of what to focus on.
Last month we introduced Dedicated Derms, a three-month series where we shine a light on our partnership with three professional female dermatologists first introduced at Convention in September.
