Skincare is talked about all over the internet, throughout the world. So many businesses have created a skincare line or even brands have launched specific to making skincare products. Taking care of your skin and prioritizing your skin care routine has only blown up in the recent 4-5 years. 📈 So now that we are all trying to learn about our skin and treat it right, it’s important to know the reason why we are doing this and not the reason of just hopping on a “trend”.
So why is skincare so important? For me there are several reasons why I care about treating my skin right and why I LOVE the whole process of skincare.
For one, our skin encounters so much bacteria, dirt, and exposure throughout the day. All from wearing makeup, just going out, talking on the phone, sun exposure, and especially touching your face. Most people touch their face without second thought and more than they can count! Fun fact, research has found that on average people touch their face 16 times per hour…Crazy!
The tips of our fingers naturally carry oils and of course bacteria from touching everything. So when we touch our face without cleaning our hands, all that bacteria and oils transfer to our face. That dirt, oil, and bacteria build up in your pores throughout the day. This is why it is so important to thoroughly remove makeup & dirt from your skin.
Now that seems pretty obvious. But if your face is clean, why is the routine after you wash your face necessary? 🤷🏼♀️
The skin on your face is different than the skin on the rest of your body. It is the most sensitive and thin. This is also where you deal with the most irritations, hyperpigmentation, acne, aging, rosacea, dryness, etc. The list goes on and on as to challenges people face with their skin. You want to restore and nourish your skin with the right key ingredients to help improve your skin problems and/or maintain the health of your skin.
It is also super relaxing and therapeutic to do your skincare routine. At least for me lol. It’s a moment where you can pause and simply focus on your self-care. 🧖🏼♀️
