The Importance of Skincare
I’m not the only one who has seen people with very clear skin, and wondered what they use for their skin right? Because I don’t want to be the weirdo who does that but moving on with the topic.
Throughout the last decade especially, skincare usage and awareness has increased. In 2018, within the UK alone had made £86.5 million, while in 2010 they made just £27.7 million. Like for real, that’s an increase of over 50 million pounds just on skin care. From 2017 to now, the importance of skincare has become one of societies “norms” – meaning one of the most required things we need to put into our daily life and honestly as we should be.
Speaking of that, I honestly never truly knew how important it was to take care of your skin, as unlike my mother, I am truly careless when it comes to most things which I will be honest used to be with my skincare.
It is very important to do even the most basic things such as:
– Wash your face every day for 60 seconds/1 minute (no more than a minute and no less than a minute)
– Moisture 2-5 minutes after you wash your face (as it gives your skin more of an exfoliating feeling as well as your face would feel a lot clearer)
– Drink up to 7-8 cups of water (it helps your skin feel more exfoliated, as well as the fact that it also improves your immune system, and it does wonders to you the more you drink it, I PROMISE YOU)
– Eat your fruit and vegetables etc.
An example of a skincare issue was one that I had recently saw on twitter, and I thought that was a perfect example as to how many the beauty industry can sometimes fool everyone, myself included with their advertising skills. So, any people know that Kylie Jenner has flawless skin, and she has her own organisation called “Kylie Skin” I believe, and she has recently went on snapchat to promote her products to market out her products such as the “Kylie Jenner Walnut Face Scrub”. This is a product that was criticized by the majority of her fanbase due to the fact that she had created false advertising within her snapchat story while using a filter.
Walnut facial products can actually cause a lot more irritation to your face and especially for people such as myself with sensitive skin, it can also cause a reaction and it would make you feel that your skin is burning, which is something that no one would want to have, and I mean EVER. There are many other products that also do false advertising when it comes to their skin products, however I am not making this blog to bash any companies as I support every single organisation that strive towards skincare as it is very important.
My Personal Opinion about the Importance of Skincare
I feel that the importance of skincare can differentiate depending on the person as some people consider it to be very important, but other people might feel that it’s not as important as other things in life.
To me as individual, I also feel that the importance of skincare has drastically changed within the last decade, as I remember when I was younger, skincare from what I’m aware of wasn’t that talked about until I was about 13-14 years old. I also believe that the importance of maintain good skin is very important. In my opinion you feel more cleansed, more exfoliated and also more confident with yourself.
Much love everyone
