We all go through bad patches. It might be problems at work or at home, and some problems can be very difficult – even impossible – to solve. In a lot of cases it is a case of getting our heads down and getting through it, hopefully coming out OK at the other end.

This is often very difficult to do, however, and some people will experience chronic stress as a result. It is a potentially very serious condition and anybody suffering from chronic stress should speak with a professional. There are a few signs to look out for that somebody is suffering from chronic stress.

1. Acne

Acne is a common condition that tends to affect adolescents but can affect people of all ages. There are various causes of it, ranging from abnormal hormone levels, excess oil production, bacterial infections, and blocked pores. Products are available that will often help to at least reduce the symptoms.

Studies have shown that people undergoing stress are more likely to develop acne. One potential reason for this is that people are more likely to touch their face when they are stressed. It could also be down to hormonal imbalances, such as a sustained increase in the levels of cortisol in the body.
