Due to hypersensitive SNS
We all know our body is highly sensitive to stress. Naturally, the sympathetic nervous system takes over the body when we are under tress, and hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline norepinephrine are secreted as SNS respond to stress. Sympathetic hyperactivity is easy to understand when we imagine confronting a bear in the woods. To 'fight or flight,' we require a large amount of blood supply to the muscle tissues, and our heart rate goes up to pump more blood. Stress hormones dilate blood vessels, which increase capillary permeability, thus cause the bodily temperature rise, especially the skin and muscles. The heat in the body increases sebum production in the skin. This type of acne patients has extra sensitive skin from the acute stress response, overreacting to external stimuli such as metal and cosmetic products.
