"Stress is a major deterrent to having good skin," according to Howard Murad, a dermatologist and CEO of skin care company Murad, Inc. "Even if you eat a perfect diet, if you're under stress you're not going to like the way it looks on you." The link between stress and skin is becoming clearer all the time.

2) Elimination Effect Clear Skin Depends on Internal Wellness

Inhalation and exhalation by the skin allows it to open pores and perspire.
