This leads to tachycardia, increased blood pressure, respiration quickens, change the water-salt balance, increases the sugar in the blood, etc. 
Stress, like any disorder of the digestive system, makes its presence visible on the skin. On the female body in general, stress has an extremely negative effect: frequent or chronic headaches, panic reaction, and infertility, the quick aging of the skin and deterioration, gastritis, stomach pains, a set of extra pounds of cellulite. All happens because of the stress.
