De-stress Test: Skin Care

Acne is a typical thing about 80 percent of teens experience. Even though it’s very common, dealing with it is difficult and people often find embarrassing. The stress of everyday struggles can make the skin more prone to acne. The more homework and extracurricular activities you have on a daily basis, the more prone you are to getting consistent acne. So for the past week, I’ve tested the effects of face masks and skin care to de-stress.

One of my favorite things to use on my skin is sheet masks. Walmart actually has an awesome selection of sheet masks for any skin type. I prefer sheet masks to clay masks solely because they don’t dry out like clay masks do. Sheet masks are much more gentle on the skin. I find it nice to do face masks over washing my face everyday because I can do other things while wearing it. For the 15 minutes you wear it, that’s enough time get started on your homework or housework.

Another mask I tried was a clay mask. A clay mask does the same thing a sheet mask would but instead you wipe it on and wait for it to dry. The clay mask can get messy at times and can also make your skin super irritated and tight. I would recommend clay masks to anyone except people like me who have sensitive skin.

Overall, I did feel much less stressed from this experiment because it allowed me to multi-task and also made me feel good about my skin. I would highly recommend doing them two to three times a week to help cope with stress and the acne it may cause.
