American Academy of Dermatology: How You Feel on the Inside Could be Affecting How You Look on the Outside

Dermatologists can help minimize the effects of stress and emotions on

skin, hair and nails

NEW YORK, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- In the emotional rollercoaster of life, sometimes the "down" periods have long-lasting effects on more than just our mood. In fact, numerous studies link factors that impact our emotional well-being -- such as stress, depression and anxiety -- to an increase in skin, hair or nail problems. Now, dermatologists are advising patients to recognize these secondary symptoms and to seek treatment early before they cause additional stress.

Speaking today at the American Academy of Dermatology's skin academy (Academy), dermatologist and clinical psychologist Richard G. Fried, MD, PhD, FAAD, of Yardley, Pa., discussed the reciprocal relationship between feelings and appearance, and how failing to address these concerns can affect how we look, feel and function.

"When patients are going through a rough period in their lives, negative emotions can wreak havoc on their appearance," said Dr. Fried. "So, as a result, patients might start to notice that their hair is thinning, their skin is inflamed or their nails are brittle -- which can be physical manifestations of their mental state. These unwanted physical changes can have a profoundly negative impact on how they feel. The negative emotions can trigger a vicious cycle of worsening skin, hair and nails leading to worsening of their emotional state and can lead to further worsening of the skin problem. Dermatologists can play a key role in helping patients not only alleviate these physical symptoms, but also help enhance their quality of life during a difficult time."

Stress can manifest itself on one's appearance in many ways, primarily by making the skin more sensitive and more reactive. For example, Dr. Fried noted that stress can make rosacea more red, result in acne lesions that are more inflamed an
