Stress can affect the body in many ways regardless of the cause of stress. One of the effects of stress is on the skin. The following effects on stress include:

  • Stress causes an increased release of certain hormones. These hormones will cause an increase in the production of sebum (oil) and this will lead to oily skin. The increased production of sebum will also increase the risk of acne formation.
  • Effect of stress on the nails: stress can affect the nail in the way that some people when stressed they pick their nails, others bite their nails in reaction to stress.
