Loose or sagging skin caused by a significant amount of weight loss in a very short amount of time is very common among individuals that have had weight loss surgery. Unlike weight loss that occurs over a slower period of time, bariatric surgery usually removes 100+ pounds at one time and the skins elasticity does not have time to catch up. The most effective way to address the excess skin is through cosmetic surgery.
Stress can affect your whole body including your skin. Everything from rashes to skin sensitivities are possible when you are under too much stress. You might also notice an increase in breakouts due to an increase in the stress. When you are under stress your body produces more of the stress hormone cortisol, which is responsible for increased oil production which may in part lead to an increased amount of breakout on the skin. Stress can also put a damper on your sleep and impact the appearance of your eyes and skin. Try to get at least eight hours of sleep each night, apply A-Dream brightening eye cream to moisturize the eye area, and talk to your health care provider if stress is negatively impacting the quantity and quality of your sleep.
