How Stress Affects Our Physical Body.
Chronic stress can change your physical appearance. How stress affects your looks is by changing the levels of cortisol in your body. Cortisol is a hormone that can have negative effects on your physical appearance. Other stress related problems include; accelerated aging, dry or dull skin, weight gain, acne, and brittle nails. Stress can also add weight and make it near impossible to lose. It affects men and women differently. Men tend to store their stress weight in their stomachs whereas women normally store stress weight in their legs and thighs.
