Being overwhelmed by the holiday period is normal. So is Post-Christmas Acne.

The buildup of tasks and emotions leading up to the festive period can leave you completely exhausted and stressed.

Then comes the excess – overeating, overdrinking, overcommunicating. The pressure to buy the perfect gift, to have the best time, do everything right on this one day can be a bit much.

Trying to please everyone whilst simultaneously getting along effortlessly is hard.

The pressure and comparison to other people’s Instagram reels is real.

Being overwhelmed by the holiday period is a legitimate thing.

Along with the stress of it all, you lose track of your routine, what and when you eat, this altogether takes away from the relaxed, stress-free festive period you had in mind.

Here is what we know to be true that might be helpful to staying sane and optimistic:

This is a time when break-outs are usually at their worst for everyone.

The stress leading up to Christmas affects our skin more than we think. The cold winter months also mean a shift in our immune system making breakouts more common.




Here are some things that may be helpful to remember during this time


Self-Care and You Time

It is common to prioritize other people during this time, but remember to set aside some time each day to do something just for you.

Make time for yourself to relax and rewind – it will do your hormones, mind and skin some good.


Everyone is talking about it these days, but there is a scientific link between expressing gratitude and increased levels of overall happiness.

Taking some time to reflect and write down people and things you are grateful for in your life is a powerful exercise and can help put things into perspective.

The Radiance Powder

Formulated to help you look and feel your best no matter what this festive holiday period throws your way.  

Remember that consistency is key, so use this daily supplement to get back on track with healthy daily habits. The Radiance Powder has undergone clinical and dermatological testing proving visible improvements in acne vulgaris and atopic dermatitis. It’s the ultimate supplement to take during this time, and if we could recommend one change to your daily routine to help skin and internal health over this period, this would be it.


Get some Alone Time Outside

I am not a huge fan of intense exercise, but I do not miss my daily walk or run. Research conducted by the NHS shows walking 20 minutes daily significantly reduces your chances of heart disease, stroke, dementia, colon, breast cancer and depression.

Apart from it being a game changer for your health, it will give you some alone time to clear your head and releases endorphins ultimately reducing stress levels.
