Acne Treatment: Mind
Reducing stress will benefit your skin. Devote time for sleep (7-8 hours) and keep consistent bedtimes and waking times. Keep good sleep hygiene such as keeping the bedroom dark, cool, and quiet, avoiding naps, and only using the bedroom for sleep and sex. Engage in stress-reducing activities such as meditation, gentle yoga, guided imagery, breathwork, prayer, therapeutic art, dance, and music. A regular practice of the relaxation response will help keep cortisol in check.
