We Ask the Pros: What Are the Best Skin-Care Products for Stressed Out Skin?
Have you noticed that during stressful times you tend to break out more? Or that your skin is more sensitive to products?
The good news is that there are a number of products that can help. We asked three experts to share their top picks according to your concerns, but all of them noted that in addition to using the right products, it’s important to find ways to manage your stress (through things like meditation, yoga, going to the gym, meeting up with friends, or working with a psychologist) for long-term benefits.
