Stress and How It Affects Health, Hair & Skin – Discussed by Dr Lycka & Dr Ablon

Two leading dermatologists discuss how stress affects skin conditions by triggering them, causing them or making them worse.


Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/19/2016 -- Stress is an unwelcome part of modern life, and has been found to cause several health problems, and many of these are widely known about. However, it has also been discovered that stress is at the root of many skin conditions too. Stress can cause skin conditions, trigger skin conditions and make skin conditions worse.

This week (18Jul16) on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, show host Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka talks with Board Certified Dermatologist Dr Glynis Ablon from her practice on Manhattan Beach, California. Both doctors have many years of experience in treating skin conditions, and Dr Ablon shares her research and advice regarding how stress affects skin conditions. She has published a book on the subject, 'What's Stressing Your Skin?', and has experienced first-hand the devastating effects of too much stress on one's physical health.

In this in-depth interview Dr Lycka & Dr Ablon begin with a discussion about stress and how it affects the body. Dr Ablon shares her personal story of how she was literally paralyzed by stress, which led to her research about how stress affects the skin. Dr Ablon shares her research and goes through several skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis and eczema, that are either caused by stress, triggered by stress or made worse by stress. The two doctors talk about ways to relieve stress, including meditation, diet, and lifestyle changes. They also consider how stress affects the hair and highlight a couple of conditions where stress causes hair loss.
