Skincare IS Selfcare

Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies. It plays an essential role in protecting us, regulating body temperature, storing water and fat, and helping to create vitamin D when we’re in the sun. But did you know that there are 3,000 skin conditions known to dermatologists that affect millions of people around the world? The most common of these issues include acne, dry or itchy skin and hyperpigmentation, or dark patches.


Skin issues can cause discomfort, leading to frustration, even in the most confident of women. Today’s societal pressures, heightened with social media, have given us the ability to present an idealized version of ourselves online. Coupled with skin conditions, unrealistic expectations can cause anxiety, depression, self-consciousness and low self-esteem for many, especially those who may feel their own imperfect skin is the exception rather than the rule. Hyperpigmentation (dark spots) occurs when excess melanin (the pigment that gives skin its color) is produced, affecting millions of individuals of all skin types and tones.

If you have visible skin problems, you might find yourself hesitant to attend social events or avoid them altogether, becoming withdrawn, frustrated or feeling uncomfortable in your own skin. But regularly practicing self-care, including taking care of your skin, can help!

A daily cleanser, a nighttime mask, or even a bit of tinted moisturizer can save the appearance of your skin — and have major effects on your emotional well-being.

Caring for your skin should be the first steps in your self care routine.

When practiced regularly, research has shown that self-care increases resilience, improves life expectancy, and makes us better able to cope stress. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it can promote and maintain health, prevent disease, and help us cope with illness and disability. Self-care should be an integral part of everyday life, with wide-reaching benefits that include reduced anxiety, increased productivity, higher self-esteem, and an improved immune system.
