Gregory Landsman, the author of Face and Fitness, says that a high stress level is immediately visible on a person's face. Landsman said that those with oily skin will experience increased oil secretion and acne while those with dry skin will display signs of stress such as redness or inflammation on the skin.

Landsman's suggestion was supported by Brisbane chiropractor Jocelyn Olsson who said that increased stress will prevent the flow of blood towards digestive organs.

"When we are tense, our adrenal glands release "stress response" hormones. Once this response has been activated, the body responds by an increase in heart rate, an increase in blood pressure, muscular stress, and the blood flowing away from the digestive functions toward the muscles", she said.
