Stress can build up especially during these unprecedented times. Unfortunately, it can cause your skin to be more prone to sensitivity, irritation, inflammation, breakouts and dullness.
Many countries have made mask wearing mandatory and there is no doubt that this situation will last till next year. Prolonged mask wearing has stressed the skin of many individuals leading to inflammation and “maskne”. Other than physical stress resulted from mask wearing, stress also comes from other sources like pathogens, allergens, chemicals, sunlight and environmental pollutants.
How does your skin get inflamed?
Stress factors may induce cytokine production which can cause acute and chronic inflammation. Cytokines are small proteins (approximately 25kDa) which are released by various cells in response to stress. They transfer the signals through binding to specific receptors on other cells and cause some functional change in target cells. Some inflammatory cytokines are IL-β, IL-6, TNF-α and iL-8. Our skin is also inflamed when allergens trigger an allergic reaction.
