Studies have demonstrated fluctuations in cortisol levels can cause surges that are detrimental to the function and cyclic regulation of the hair follicle. When cortisol levels rise rapidly the synthesis and acceleration of the degradation of important skin elements, namely hyaluronan and proteoglycans can occur at an alarming rate of 40%.
