I had always been a girl that had stress issues. Some people itches or gets stupid under stress but me I get dandruff I know it's disgusting but I would just like to share to you all that the only way to avoid this stress is to find an outlet that is not only a reliever for your stressful life but also productive. So for me what I did was I found working out, reading and petting my dog is very rewarding. So my suggestion finds something that will de-stress you yet tremendously productive. What about you guys? What do you think is your physical manifestation of stress?

yeah, that's true stress can cause dandruff. It's really disgusting that your dandruff keeps on dropping on your black dress. For me, what I did is took a shower after having a very stressful day. Then listen to a very soothing music and think about the happy moments happened to my life. You may also try having a 30 minutes yoga after bathing. This one is also good way of relaxation.

Everybody faces stress in some phrases of their life, including me. I don't get dandruff when i'm stressed, instead i have breakouts. I know i'm at breakdown point when i see my first pimple, that's where i will begin to take necessary steps to control it, find my outlets to relieve my stress. It can be anything as long as it takes my mind off the pressure i'm facing.

Stress can easily be seen on my face so the moment that I see my skin gets drier and looks awful, that's the time that I have to think of ways to relieve them. Will take a leave from all of the tasks or things that stress me. I always want to go out and stay at the parks especially on ordinary days wherein there is less people so I can concentrate or if I have plenty of time and enough money, I will go hike mountains.

When i am stressed, i cannot sleep fitfully at night. I would toss and turn on my bed and it seems i cannot sleep. Whenever, i encounter that, i would wake-up, put a light pillow on hubby's sleeping eyes and i would turn on my side table lampshade and get the bible. I would read verses and ponder on them. Eventually, it would soothe me and make me feel lighter and sleepy.

In my case i have two of the worst physical manifestation of stress and that's dandruff and pimple. Lately my schedule is really stressful because i had to work until midnight and had to wake up early because i have to start work again at 7am. This is giving me a lot of stress since i couldn't sleep enough. I drink plenty of water during the day. Take a nap during my vacant time and then clean my hair regularly and i have to use anti-acne soap and creams for my face as well. But i think i should add exercise to my daily regimen.

Stress makes me fell generally unwell and I think it is a condition that should never be dismissed and ignored because I believe that stress over load can go as far as kill a person! For me writing, reading and petting my cats relaxes me and de-stresses me. I take one of my cats to my parents’ house because they have the tendency to raise my stress levels lol! So my cat, who has been trained to travel, sits in his basket while I pat him and I feel much better when mum and dad start on me...

Yes, i do agreed that whenever i stressed a lot, i found that my dandruff built-up on my head and makes me head feeling itchy all the time. I ever tried using Anti-dandruff shampoo but seems not effective at all. At last, after i try to de-stress myself, then only i discovered that my dandruff had lessen down. I found by listening to music and play games with my son is the best way to de-stress myself. It seems like we must know how to de-stress ourself then only able to control the dandruff problem.

Getting out and doing lots of exercise works for me, plus looking at my goldfish. Every time I get a little stressed, I just go over to my goldfish. I seem to talk to them a lot as well, which makes me feel more relaxed, but my parents just think I'd being crazy!
