Stress. We are all guilty of it. And ofte , we have no idea how to get rid of it. Stress affects not only our health and ability to function, it can also have a negative impact on our hair and skin.

Stress often causes breakouts, red spots and excessive skin oiliness. If you are sleep deprived because you’re up at night worrying about work, life, the kids, it can cause puffy eyes and wrinkles. Stressing too much can also cause your hair to fall out.

It’s time to de-stress! Looking good is ultimately about feeling good.

Here are some easy tips on how to prevent the breakouts and fallouts caused by stress:

1. Get Plenty of Rest!
I know this difficult for many of us, but it is recommended that we get about 8 hours of sleep a night. It’s also a good idea to go to bed before 10:00pm at least one night a week.
