The skin is an incredible organ. It is your first line of defence against disease, protects your other organs, warms you up and cools you down, and sends messages about how healthy you are inside. Dermatologists are expert medical doctors and skin surgeons with the unique skills and experience to offer the best care for the organ that cares for you.
Humans work better with a routine, and when you’re fighting off blemishes, they’ll respond much better if you take time for your skin daily, instead of just when you have time for it. Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it should be taken care of well, especially if you suffer from breakouts.
Here’s why you shouldn’t forget your skincare routine:
1. More Confidence
If you take care of your skin every day as you should, following an easy skincare routine, you’ll be rewarded with clearer, healthier skin. On a surface level, this can increase your confidence and make you feel so much better about yourself. Because isn’t it great when you’re blemish-free and feel like you can take on the world?
2. Consistency is Key
Consistent action produces consistent results. Trying a new product once or twice and expecting to see dramatic results just isn’t going to happen, unfortunately. The best way to see results with your skin is to keep coming back time after time, day after day, and sticking with it. In the end, you’ll see far more results with a long term plan than you will with a week-long “miracle treatment.”
3. Results Will Be Easier to Maintain
Starting a habit is always the hardest part, but once you see results, it gets a lot easier. If you see your skin getting clearer, won’t you want to keep those good results going?
Nothing comes right away, no matter what you do, but if you keep plugging away at it and keep going, you’ll see results over time. Once you see those results start to happen, it will be easier to maintain your skincare routine, which in turn will improve your skin even more.
Pro tip: Take a selfie when you first start a new skincare routine, and then once a week afterwards. Looking at the photos over time will help you to see the actual results!
