Holiday Stress on Your Skin

Most everyone looks forward to the holidays. Spending more time with family and friends, giving thanks for shared traditions and making memories is what this season is all about. Some people will look forward to the tradition of getting a start on their Christmas shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday, as it has come to be called, can be a lot of fun but it can also cause a great deal of stress. It’s chaotic to say the least. Chaos leads to stress, stress leads to anxiety. Anxiety can cause depression. All of these conditions can have an adverse effect on your skin.

Holiday Stress on Your Skin

Most everyone looks forward to the holidays.  Spending more time with family and friends, giving thanks for shared traditions and making memories is what this season is all about.  Some people will look forward to the tradition of getting a start on their Christmas shopping the day after Thanksgiving.  Black Friday, as it has come to be called, can be a lot of fun but it can also cause a great deal of stress.  It’s chaotic to say the least.  Chaos leads to stress, stress leads to anxiety. Anxiety can cause depression.  All of these conditions can have an adverse effect on your skin.

At a time when you want your skin to be the most radiant, the stress factor can creep in and really put a damper on your mood.  Among other things, stress causes

  • Under-eye bags
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Acne
  • Rashes and Hives
  • Flushed Face
  • Fine Lines

 

Stress causes a chemical response in your body that makes your skin more sensitive and reactive than it normally is.  The hormone cortisol becomes your enemy in times of high stress.  When your level of cortisol is increased, your skin’s ability to stay hydrated diminishes.  It also triggers an elevation in blood sugar, which damages collagen and elastin.  Not to mention, the constant muscle tension caused by stress will lead to permanent wrinkling.  Stress can increase your blood flow causing your capillaries to expand, which can trigger rosacea.

Simply put, stress is not a friend to your appearance or your overall health in general.

So, we’ve developed a way to avoid the holiday stress with an alternative approach to the Black Friday madness.  We are offering numerous products and services at incredibly discounted prices during our On-Line Black Friday shopping experience.
