Stress comes in many forms and can really wreak havoc on your skin, but Chanel is getting to the bottom of it all with its latest video series: "In Conversation With Dermatologist Amy Wechsler: The Mind/Body Connection." Dr. Wechsler has a unique board certification in both dermatology and psychiatry, which has helped her treat patients' many skin care concerns. "A lot of patients come for help with their appearance and end up talking about life issues," she says. "Skin care can be so emotional. So much of how we think affects how we look, and vice versa." In part one of the series (above), she discusses how to help reverse the damage caused by your body's inflammation response to stress.
"There's the basic science of it, where there are so many interconnections between the brain and the skin in terms of the circulation, neurotransmitters, and hormones," Dr. Wechsler explains. In part two of the video series, Dr. Wechsler talks about keeping your skin in tune with your biological clock, which will help your complexion stay radiant and healthy. Stress, technology, and lack of sleep can all cause your skin to deviate from your natural rhythm, but watch the video above to see how you can get your skin back in sync.
