Skincare is Self-care

We talk about self-care so much, but quite commonly we only focus on the spiritual aspect of it or the dietary aspect. The topological aspect is something that needs to be talked more about and that’s what I’m here to do today. 

Do you Moisturize? 

This is something we’ve all heard but probably have heard all the time. But the reason why most people don’t do it is that they don’t understand how important it is to do so.

Sure, some might say moisturizers and other skin care routines are only the product of the 21st century, and yes you don’t necessarily HAVE to do them. It’s just like you don’t HAVE to have fruit, it’s just healthy to do so. Likewise, it’s not unhealthy not to moisturize, but if you want to take care of your skin and keep it fresh all the time, it’s important that you do so. 

Btw. On the note of it being a thing of the 21st century. Well, even Cleopatra was said to bathe in milk for moisturizing qualities. (Don’t try this at home – Please)

Also, another disclaimer I want to put out there. It’s not that you moisturize once and you feel that OH MY GOD. IT’S A MIRACLE. No, Karen, it takes its time!

There are no wonder drugs out there, there is no blue pill or red pill. It’s not Wonderland Karen. Just chill kay?

So what I’m trying to say is, that skincare takes time. Moisturizing isn’t going to make you look like JLo all of a sudden. It takes consistency and probably weeks, if not months, of consistency. 

What’s Moisturizing?

Moisturizing creates a barrier between your skin and the atmosphere where it doesn’t let any dry or hot climate suck the moisture out from your skin. Moisturizing also helps you rehydrate your skin and helps enhance your skin’s water retention capacity, 

Let’s get a little technical, shall we?

As you can see, the epidermal layer of your skin will release moisture into the air if you don’t take care of it. In dry climates, like your room when the AC is turned on, this will still happen regardless of your skin being healthy. And since we’ve created such atmospheres in the world, we need to do something about them to protect our skin from them as well. So, what do we do? We moisturize. 

If you want to know more about moisturizing, keep following us and we’ll keep you updated. 

For all of those who are thinking “I don’t need to moisturize, my skin is naturally oily”, well Ben, you DO need to moisturize. Sheesh. It’s tough talking to people who aren’t skintellectuals.
