Factors That Can Affect Your Skin This Holiday Season

During the holiday season, you want to look your best and that starts with taking care of your skin. Your skin goes through a lot throughout the year, but some factors might play a bigger role during the holidays. Acknowledging and addressing these factors can improve your skin. 

Lack of Sleep 

Your body needs adequate sleep to recover from the day and to function properly. Lack of sleep can affect your entire body including your skin. Some common signs of poor sleep include red eyes, dark circles or bags under the eyes, dull skin, and more. Not getting enough sleep can even dry out your skin because during sleep your body naturally moisturizes itself. It’s also more likely to develop wrinkles and fine lines when you don’t get enough sleep each night. During the holidays, make it a priority to get plenty of rest so you can look and feel your best. 


While the holidays are a fun time to spend with friends and family, they can also come along with plenty of stress. High-stress levels can negatively affect your skin. When you’re stressed, your cortisol levels rise, which can trigger skin inflammation. When your skin is inflamed, it will appear less smooth and shiny and there’s an increased risk of an acne outbreak. It may be difficult, but you need to manage your stress during the holidays. Take time to relax and breathe. Little activities like meditation or using a gratitude journal can help you relax. During the holidays, you can also decrease your stress by setting healthy boundaries with those around you. 

Sugar and Alcohol 

The holidays are a time to celebrate and indulge. However, some things can also negatively affect your skin. Eating a lot of sugary treats introduces free radicals into your body and this affects your cells. It becomes harder for collagen and elastin to keep your skin looking smooth, tight, and healthy. Alcohol can have a similar effect on the body. If you eat and drink a lot during the holidays, it can cause duller skin. Try to cut back as much as possible and find other ways to satisfy cravings. 

Everything you do affects your skin. It’s helpful to know what factors to keep an eye out for, so you can still take care of your skin. This season, make a few changes to your routine and you can keep your skin glowing and beautiful.
