Abstract:   (617 Views)
Psychological stress can play a crucial role in detrimental physiological and functional consequences on the skin. Psychological stress cannot be monitored directly, hence in this study, we tried to monitor stress via recording some biophysical parameters of the skin (skin moisture, skin sebum (oil), and skin temperature) and compared to stress levels assessed based on Perceived Stress Scale. Skin biophysical parameters were recorded from 20 subjects, which experienced three different psychological stress levels. The answers to the Perceived Stress Scale questionnaire were used to assess the subject's stress levels. Skin moisture, sebum, and temperature were reduced as a function of psychological stress levels. However, statistically, no significant differences were observed among the three levels of stress. This study illustrated that different psychological stress levels led to a reduction in biophysical parameters of the skin. These findings suggest that the skin parameters might be used as a method for monitoring psychological stress.
