If a person has one month of chronic depression does that age the face or is that not enough time to do aging damage?

If one has chronic depression and stress for one month and only one month no more. Could that show up on the face skin or is that not enough time to create sagging wrinkling or aging of the facial skin or would you need a longer depressive period of time to show visible effects of aging on the face?

I dont think a month is enough to do alot of damage which I think is temporary anyway.
Try to look after yourself better with food, liquid, sleep (you may be getting too much already) look after your skin well with hydration like moisturisers and gels.

That is not enough time to age you. One month is nothing. Maybe several years would age you, but not one month.

You start aging more and faster only when the hormones go at age 50 or so. So don't worry until you reach that age! It's the hormones that keeps us looking young.

Chronic stress ages anyone. It is somewhat hormonal. Stress causes the release of cortisol, which can be destructive, also catecholamines, such as adrenaline. For women, of course, menopause, causes a big change in hormonal balances. The production of estrogen declines greatly. In the past many people took estrogen supplementation. I'm not sure if that is recommended anymore.
