Have a stress-free and Acne-free Christmas!

Sunday, December 21, 2014


Four more days to go and its Christmas! I bet, most of you will be doing the last minute Christmas shopping, yeah? Well, I am. Work and personal stuff keeps me busy this month and squeezing some time for Christmas shopping for gifts is quite a struggle. Oh well, I already scheduled it tomorrow so I have to stick with it, else, I’ll be a loser. Meanwhile, this Christmas season is also 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, which I mentioned earlier, 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. That’s the reality! Ouch!

oh, hi there!


How is Stress related to Acne? 
So let me discuss it a little further. 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? 
Of course! We can avoid acne and have flawless skin this Christmas season. Here are some of my tips for you to do so.

One. Wash. 
Always wash your face. No matter how tired you are you should cleanse your face before bedtime as it is the only time your skin rest and free of chemicals and any other harmful ingredients that may contribute having acne.

Two. Moisturize. 
Yes, it relaxes and soothes your skin. It also prepares your skin for the big happening of your life the next day.
