While the Christmas season is definitely a well anticipated time of the year, truth be told, it is also one of the most stressful time for a whole bunch of consumers. Checking off each item on our list can be nerve-wracking as we squeeze that task in our already very busy grind. Another reason why our family is led to tone down on the stuff-giving this Christmas. Now, that’s another post altogether.
Toning down on stuff-giving this season might sound like a very radical, against-the-flow practice, shopaholics might even find it brutal. But it’s a great way to take the stress out of this holiday. But in the event you find yourself in the inevitable midst of the holiday chaos, we all know so well what practically goes hand in hand with stress – acne. Stress doesn’t just cause acne, it further aggravates it, for those who are already prone to it.
Our body is prone to produce excess hormones with our stress levels. This means, the more stress, the more stimulated our various hormones are. This triggers our skin to produce excess oil, which is the culprit to acne. This is why those who stay up late at night and stressed-out people are more prone to acne.
My Personal Checklist to a Stress-Free Holiday Season
1. The first on my list is like what I’ve mentioned, tone down on Christmas being the season of stuff. Shopping till you drop is crazy and has the ability to bring your stress level to its all time high.
