Committing a mistake with skincare is something that you should not brood over. You can still correct your mistake. However, if you keep doing it over and over again, you need to have a change of habit. Not all people are concern over the health of their skin. They only do that once they get an infection, inflammation or irritation. But why wait for your skin to get hurt when you can prevent it in the first place? All it takes is discipline, yet this rarely gets done the right way. Take for example how most people disregard protecting their skin against the heat of the sun. They may look like they are unharmed and powerful against what the heat can do, but constant exposure to the sun without protection is only inviting skin cancer. It can also contribute to the likelihood of premature ageing. You do not want this to happen to you, right? Keep reading.
Reasons Why You Should Take Care of Your Skin
Some people who are very keen with taking care of their skin are often met with harsh criticisms from those who rarely take care of their skin at all. They are mostly talked down, saying that they are too serious when the skin can be left alone without worries at all. Whatever those people will say to you, ignore them. What you are doing is just the right thing.
Your skin is the largest organ of the human body. Its protects your inner organs against environmental hazards. This is its primary job to do. But when its main purpose is not assisted with the proper care that humans are expected to do, it would naturally lose its ability to fully protect the human body against any known and unknown hazards.
Common Skin Care Mistakes
Rather than calling them mistakes, it is best to refer them as excuses. The following below are the most common excuses you hear from people talking about their skin.
First is becoming too tired to wash their face before heading to bed. Not all people are aware, but their skin is exposed to outside elements that they eye cannot see. So when they head to bed right away without cleansing their face, they are actually inviting premature ageing, enlarge the pores or even develop acne. It is not good to sleep with your make-up still on. The same thing with oil and dirt still on the surface of your skin, especially on the face. You only need to spend at least 2 minutes to wash your face before bed. But if this is too much of a hassle for you, purchase those no-rinse facial wipes and always keep them in arms reach right next to your bed. So when you are going to sleep, you only need these wipes to wipe off any dirt and oil on your face.
As said before, it is always recommended to wear sunblock before you get out of the house, even if there is no “sun” outside. The absence of light coming from the sun does not mean there are no UV rays making its way into the atmosphere. It is still there. UVA rays is the primary suspect for ageing and it happens the entire year, even during winter. Always keep a product or two in your bag that protects you against UVA and UVB rays from the sun. The effect is long term, but you will never regret committing to this attitude.
People also blame products to be very pricey, which is why they ditch taking care of their skin. It doesn’t matter whether you are going for the branded ones or the lesser known ones, expensive or the cheap ones. What’s very important here is the ingredient that will help keep your skin healthy.
Discipline is all it takes to make sure that your skin is as healthy as the ones the youths have. All you need is to repeat the habit daily, even if you just have to clean your skin with plain water. There are even cases these days wherein all they did to keep a young look was just use plain water to take care of their skin. You should do the same, too.
