Résumé

«La peau est le miroir qui reflète l’état de l'esprit»«La peau est une fenêtre sur l'esprit». Ces proverbes sont anciens. Ils sont le thème de cet article. Aujourd'hui, la technologie de l'information rend notre vie commode, mais trop d'informations souvent nous surmènent. Nous souffrons de stress mental plutôt que de stress physique. Depuis la réaction au stress découverte par Selye, de nombreuses réactions du corps ont été décrites. La peau est également un organe cible de la réaction au stress. Cette revue récapitule les effets du stress et comment ce dernier agit sur la peau. L'utilisation potentielle de parfums pour réguler la réaction au stress est également abordée.
