Listen now
“When a patient comes in, I sit down with them and ask all about their stress, sleep, relationships, work, exercise, and sex lives. Usually they’ll be confused and say ‘Oh, I’m here for a skin thing,’ but a lot of people are walking around with undiagnosed and therefore untreated disorders, and we need to start there,” says double board certified dermatologist & psychiatrist Amy Wechsler M.D., one of the handful of physicians in the country with both certifications. “Research shows that when people go to the doctor, even more than looking for a diagnosis—they are looking to be heard. It’s important that we listen to them.” In this episode of Clean Beauty School, mindbodgyreen’s beauty director & host Alexandra Engler and Wechsler discuss the immediate and long-term consequences of chronic stress on the skin—plus, her go-to solutions.   Show notes: -Read up on the brain-skin connection.  -Understanding how brain & skin cells develop.  -Learn about the benefits of sex for skin.  Comments: [email protected] Sponsorship inquiries: [email protected]
