11 Signs Your Body Is Under Too Much Stress

- Page 1

There are a lot of psychological ways to tell if you're stressed, but did you know there are physical signs your body will give you as well?

1. Acne

When you're stressed, your body can produce a hormone called cortisol. This, unfortunately, clogs your pores and causes breakouts, according to dermatologist Dhaval G. Bhanusali.

2. Red Face

If you notice your face is getting red when you're not exerting any type of energy, this could be stress-induced flushing.

"It has to do with increased heart rate, respiration, perspiration, and stress," Dr. Nikki Martinez says. "This will turn you bright red because the body is not operating at a level of homeostasis, where it is able to cool itself."

3. Constant Exhaustion

Feeling tired all the time when you're not doing anything necessarily strenuous can be a sign of stress. Dr. Stephen Wander says this unique tiredness is called adrenal fatigue, which happens when your adrenal glands become overrun with cortisol.
