Besides those extra helpings of pumpkin pie, one of the biggest beauty busters during Thanksgiving  is stress.  We all know stress can cause last minute {{asin=B000052YJX,text=blemishes}} to pop out and cause those dark under-eye circles to appear.

Stress is a major beauty buzz kill which may trigger periods of {{asin=B000F8FBEC,text=insomnia}} and can cause hair to misbehave.

Misbehaving hair triggered by chronic stress may cause a tight scalp, dry frizzy tresses or generally unmanageable strands. It might also trigger excessive oiliness resulting in limp or lank strands.

Pounding caffeine or energy drinks to help relieve stress may actually cause more hair and beauty challenges, depending upon how much you consume.

The good news is that there are a wide range of beauty tips for Thanksgiving which you can utilize to relieve stress during this Holiday season.

1. Think Pink

Even though it's the season of orange, yellow, chocolaghe and gold, wearing pink has been shown to almost instantly relieve tension.

If you don't want to wear pink clothing, pop on a few pink accessories such as a beautiful hair flower, headband or even a ring you can gaze at when stress starts to mount.

It doesn't matter what color pink but make sure it is a version of pink you love so you don't feel stressed by wearing something which offends your beauty code.

2. Play Your Favorite Tunes

Listening to music you love soothes your brain which also calms a tight scalp. Don't forget that stress can tighten up the scalp and may impact blood flood to the brain, which can be a no-no for maintaining healthy hair and strands.

I often pop in my ear buds and listen to my favorite mixes on my iPod.  It instantly relieves my stress.

3. Take Little Beauty Naps

There is actually a comfy couch in the ladies' room at and when I am overly stressed I will sneak in there for a 20 minute rest. We call it the "hang out" because it can be a great way to hang loose and let the stress drain out of your body.

4. Try Pacing
