How stress and anxiety can affect your skin
How stress and anxiety can affect your skin


Stress and anxiety can affect more than just our emotions and mental abilities; they can also cause physical symptoms such as acne and a lowered immune system. Life can be stressful and finding a balance between work, relaxation, family and relationships is not always easy. Every single person experiences stress on a regular basis. Some people are better at managing it than others, while certain people find that stress causes their skin to breakout.

Well-being and stress are inextricably linked – like two opposing ends of a seesaw. When stress levels are high, your body starts to show signs of strain. Your skin can be a good indicator of anxiety, tension and the worries that consume your thoughts. While there are many ways to manage stress, promote relaxation and look after your skin, there are few products available that can do all of these in one go.

Soji Health offers a range of CBD products that can be used to calm the mind, improve relaxation and promote healthier, more radiant skin. Our carefully-formulated range of skincare products contain full-spectrum CBD oil, which helps to improve skin conditions and appearance. We recommend using our Gentle Facial Cleanser, Nourishing Body Lotion and Relaxing Body Oil to cleanse the skin and leave it looking for even, vibrant and smooth. 

The effects of stress on the skin

Stress and anxiety can have various negative effects on the body. They can lead to a compromised immune system, swollen glands, insomnia and weight gain. However, stress often affects the skin first – acne is a common symptom, but the skin can develop an uneven tone and texture too. Puffy bags under the eyes are a sure sign of sleeplessness and angst. Dermatologists have shared their thoughts on the effects of stress on the skin.

“As we all have unique and changeable skin, stress-induced symptoms can manifest differently in everyone,” explains Andrea Pfeffer, founder of facial spa PfefferSal. “This can include acne flare-ups, rashes, inflammation (especially for those with psoriasis and eczema), excessive dryness and rosacea,” she adds.

“Breakouts on and around the chin and jawline area are mainly down to your hormones. Your body’s reaction to stress is to produce the hormone cortisol – which, unhelpfully, tells your sebaceous glands to produce more oil, leading to oilier skin, congestion and breakouts. It also destroys collagen, weakening the skin and leaving it more susceptible to uneven textures and pimples,” says Pfeffer.

Stress and anxiety can also cause dry lips, increased skin sensitivity and a chalky complexion. While tired skin and dryness are fairly easy to treat, acne takes longer and is more noticeable. CBD oil is an ideal treatment for these conditions as it has deep moisturizing effects and helps to restore skin complexion. 

CBD oil can help with skincare

The natural compounds contained in CBD oil have various beneficial properties, including the ability to help the consumer manage stress directly. Tackling the source of stress or managing it directly is the best way to minimize the side effects. Every individual has their own way of coping with angst; finding a way to manage stress and improving relaxation is key to well-being.

CBD oil can help to minimize acne, reduce wrinkles, moisturize the skin, improve blemishes and leave the skin looking healthier. Soji Health’s CBD-based lotions and creams have undergone triple independent tests to ensure their effectiveness. Our skincare products are completely natural and contain a healthy dose of full-spectrum CBD. They can be used for a variety of reasons; from acne and wrinkles to blemishes and overall skin health.
