Fight or Flight with Nowhere to Go

Fight or Flight with Nowhere to Go

Research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine shows there may be a strong correlation between exam-related stress and acne severity in college students. A volunteer sample of students with varying degrees of acne was assessed during both non examination and examination periods. The result was that as students approached exams and experienced a higher level of stress, they also experienced more severe acne. And according to an article from Dermatology Insights, 91% of respondents said that emotional stress caused or sometimes caused their rosacea flare-ups.

I can definitely see a correlation between the two. From my years in highschool and college I feel as though the stress did increase my acne as well as physical exhaustion.
