Your skin is the largest organ of your body, covering about 3,000 square inches of area. It keeps you warm, retains moisture, and protects you from infection. The skin is a remarkable organ, but it can also be a source of embarrassment when breakouts of acne occur.
If you are looking for some tips for dealing with body acne, here are some of the most effective ones.
1. Get Adequate Rest
Stress hormone levels increase by 14% for every hour of sleep lost in a night. Glucocorticoids are a type of stress hormone well known to affect skin structure and function. Increases in glucocorticoid levels can worsen acne and reduce your skin’s ability to heal.
Researchers recommend that you get an average of eight hours per sleep each night and that you keep the room temperature between 65 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit to improve sleep quality.
