I definetly agree with you in the stress area for sure!!!! Ive had very mild to medium Acne pretty much since puberty. Sometimes i would have nothing at all for quite awhile. But ive also had some pretty severe outbreaks where i could/would not even step foot outdoors and even shy away from my own husband in utter embarrassment. Every time ive had those upsetting outbreaks is during a very very stressfull time in my life such as almost on the verge of divorce ect... you get the picture also during these times i was eating bad food for me including tons of Sugar which i tend to turn to as well during stressfull times. My hormones would be very messed up and my periods would be off not as in not having them but maybe having them for a longer period of time in a month such as 2-3 weeks out of the month or having a light one for a week then have a week off then start a heavy one a week later??? bizarre. I know for me stress is #1 second to my eating habits. I'm also learning that there are other factors for me. Obviously hormonal since it usually flares right before my period every month and also that i have a toxic build up in my body. I think i might also have a high testosterone level because i have quite a high sexual drive once a day sort a girl... so all this combined when i get very out of balance in stress it triggers everything else to kinda go downhill and thats why i get the really bad breakouts that seem to take alot longer to heal the older i get. I'm 25 and hoping i can get all the above in order so i don't reach 35 and my body breaks down to the point of not wanting to return or my toxic level is so bad that my skin can and will not ever recover. I think that this fight to be healthy is a fight for normalcy in our apperance and mental image of ourselves..... Well just wanted to put in my two cents..
