Why Is Skincare Important?

Why Is Skincare Important?

Why Is Skincare Important?

 

by

Skincare comes down to knowing your skin and selecting the right products to help. But why bother in the first place? 

Skincare is important because it’s part of a healthy lifestyle and basic hygiene, and will keep you looking younger for longer. If that’s not enough to convince you to invest in a skincare routine, remember that prevention is always easier than correction. If you don’t start taking care of your skin now, you could suffer the consequences of wrinkles, sun damage, and skin thinning later in life that will be much harder to alleviate. 

The biggest proponent of skin care is sun protection. We are exposed to UV light every day – whether that be from sun exposure or blue light from our computer and phone screens. Without protection, our skin is inherently sensitive and susceptible to sun damage. Prolonged exposure to UV rays and light can result in sunburn, irreversible sun damage (wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots), and even worse – an increase in the risk of skin cancer and melanoma. Bottom line, skincare is important because, in order to protect yourself from the damaging effects of sun exposure, you must put some extra thought and effort into your skincare routine. 

Health is Wealth

Investing in a healthy lifestyle is key to living a happier, longer life. There are many things people do to invest in their older selves every day, including eating a healthy, rounded diet, exercising regularly, monitoring alcohol consumption, taking dietary supplements, regularly seeing a doctor for checkups, and taking care of mental health through therapy, journaling, meditation, and more. 

Skincare is a part of living a healthy, happy lifestyle because it keeps your skin health in check. When it comes to the physiological side of skincare, it’s important to take care of the skin because it is the body’s largest organ, the skin sheds skin cells daily, and to protect the skin from environmental elements. As it comes to mental health, skincare can be a valuable form of self-care. 

Doing your skincare routine in the morning or nighttime gives your mind a chance to slow down, be intentional with taking care of yourself, and boost your confidence. 

Look Younger for Longer

We know we always say this, but skincare will help you look younger for longer. It’s true! 

Like all things with health, prevention is easier than correction. If you start investing in your skincare now, you will see the long-term gain once you’re older. Studies show that maintaining a good skincare routine and wearing sunscreen daily can contribute to a decreased formation of wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. 

Keep Your Skin in Good Condition

Consistency is key. We like to use the analogy of brushing your teeth. If you brush your teeth once every two months, you’re more likely to get a cavity and develop dental problems. If you brush your teeth every day, you will likely not notice a difference. But – we still brush them every day. Skincare is no different. You won’t see the results of taking care of your skin for a while, but if you stay consistent with it – one day you’ll notice an improvement in your complexion, less irritation and redness, and fewer sudden acne breakouts

It’s important to keep your skin in good condition because the epidermis is the body’s largest organ, and needs routine maintenance as the barrier between our vital organs and the environment. We shed thousands of skin cells every day, and cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing the skin are all important steps in keeping oil, dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria out of our pores. 

Find Your Routine

If you want to start investing your time in skincare, learn the essentials of skincare first. These are the basic components of building a solid foundation for a skincare routine:

Cleansing: Wash and cleanse your face twice a day. Once in the morning, and once at night before bed. Make sure to always cleanse after wearing makeup, sunscreen, or other applicants so that it doesn’t clog your pores over time.

Exfoliating: With our skin shedding dead skin cells every day, it’s important to exfoliate those away on a regular basis to ensure new skin cells can grow. Use an Exfoliating Face Scrub once to twice a week, or before you shave to reduce friction.  

Moisturizing: The skin loses moisture throughout the day, so ensure you’re using a Hydrating Face Moisturizer to restore the moisture barrier. If you struggle with oil, this means your skin is actually in need of more moisture, as your oil glands are producing in excess to compensate for the dryness. Moisturize once to twice daily for adequate hydration.

Eye Care: The area under and around the eyes is the most delicate skin on the entire body. Protect your eyes and skin by using a nourishing Eye Serum to battle puffiness, dark spots and circles, and fine lines.
