Just talking about the effects of stress on our skin is enough to stress us out. We know you don't want to hear it, but the lack of sleep and the overall tension can cause your complexion's mood to darken almost literally. Dullness, dark circles, and dehydration usually happen first, and then come the breakouts. While you can't always dodge stressful situations, one thing you can do is to stop the negative consequences before they even happen. Below, we break down a few helpful products that will save you from a pending skin disaster:
