Here are signs that show you are overstressed:
Out of the blue acne breakouts – Whether you have always had a smooth and acne-free skin or have been experiencing breakouts here and there, stress will cause you to have breakouts and even worsen your acne. The severity of your acne is correlated to your stress levels. This is based on a Stanford University study in 2003 published in the Archives of Dermatology where they found that college students experience breakouts during their exams.
When you are stressed, your body discharges sebum. The level of stress depends on how much sebum your body secretes. Sebum is an oily substance, which protects your skin from drying out. However, if your body releases too much of it, it may only cause clogged pores and hair follicles, further leading to breakouts.
