Christmas is fast approaching, I am pretty sure you guys are having list or a long list maybe of wishlist with you. Christmas season can be a stressful time of the year if you will not handle your schedule very well. 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.
So you might ask and wonder “How is Stress related to Acne?” Well, 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. Today, I will be sharing couple of tips on how to how to overcome stress and be acnefree this Christmas season and to stay acne-free with ProActiv Solutions and to prevent acne before they begin.
