Christmas season can be a very stressful time of the year. It’s the time of
year when we usually experience a lot of good stress like the excitement brought about
by Christmas shopping and family reunions. But we can also experience bad stress such
as Christmas rush traffic and year-end business activities. Regardless if good or bad,
stress may aggravate acne.
The increased levels of stress stimulate the body's production of various
hormones and trigger different changes in the skin. Sometimes it causes the skin oils to
become more viscous making you more acne prone. Stress also reduces your body’s
natural immune defense and your skin doesn’t fight off bacteria build-up as well. When
these happen, we become more prone to breakouts.
Acne begins when oil collects at the base of the hair follicle and becomes
trapped by dead skin cells. Bacteria flourish, form a plug and swell beneath the skin.
Stress can make acne worse, causing more anxiety, and creating a vicious cycle.
How to be stress-free this Christmas season?
- Avoid the Christmas rush and shop for gifts early.
- Eat and drink in moderation to avoid sudden weight gain.
- Hide from your inaanaks.
- Don't give in to friends who demands for specific gifts. Stay within your budget.
- If you can, travel, read a good book and sleep a lot.
- Use Proactiv Solution Combination Therapy to prevent acne before they begin.
