Why is Skincare & Mental Health important?
For as long as there has been a skincare beauty industry, there has been an idea of what “healthy” or “beautiful” skin is. In particular, women and young girls have been held to unrealistic and contradictory expectations when it comes to their bodies and skin. As a result, multiple body positivity movements such as “#freethepimple” and “blemishes are beautiful” have transpired to counteract these views and change people’s perceptions of what is beauty, not only for women’s benefits but also for men’s.
In today’s society, multiple industries are beginning to change the definition of what is accepted and normal. With the evolution of skincare trends on social media such as YouTube and TikTok and the modern development of marketing campaigns, our world when it comes to skincare has only continued to grow bigger and more diverse. That positivity and inclusion have begun to do wonders for our mental health, encouraging more skincare users to start paying attention to their skin’s health.
Believe it or not, everything we put on and into our bodies is connected and can have a positive or negative impact, both internally and externally.
Similar to working out and your daily job requirements, a structured skincare routine can not only help give you a sense of stability, but also a sense of purpose and something to look forward to every day. Taking part in any skincare routine each day, if only the basics, can provide you with a sense of accomplishment that you took care of yourself.
Participating in daily tasks that benefit not only your physical health but also your mental health, is greatly encouraged to partake in to keep your overall health in check.
This may come as a surprise to no one that taking care of yourself, mentally and physically, leads to overall confidence and self-love. No matter the body or skin you’ve been given, it’s up to you and only you to feel comfortable with yourself and be accepting of who you are. It’s only important to accept yourself for who you are, nobody else. Even when it comes to physical and mental health, everything you partake in to feel better should be done for you and only you.
- Modern Conveniences/Personal Experiences
In today’s skincare industry, there are so many different variations of products and treatments to choose from. The early days of skincare procedures featured in hit television shows such as Nip/Tuck have evolved beyond any of our comprehension. Nowadays, you don’t even have to leave your house (or your bed) to receive high-quality treatments on the same scale as an in-office visit.
A great method for achieving instant, desirable results is the microneedling trend. Our Deepcare+ Serum-Infused Micro Dart Patches is a fan favorite when it comes to skincare treatments at home. With the increase in at-home options resulting from the pandemic and global lockdowns, it can be a lot of initial information in determining the best treatment for you and your skin’s needs.
What is beneficial for everyone when it comes to micro dart patches is that they are suitable for all skin types, so every user is encouraged to test them for desired results. Targeting dark circles, puffiness, and aging skin, these versatile patches contain 1,000 micro darts per patch, providing more efficient facial coverage than alternative treatments after just a single use. Why travel and step into a doctor’s office when you can have innovative skincare delivered straight to your door?
Investing time, energy, and finances into skin care can not only do wonders for your skin and mental health but for social purposes. There are countless blogs and resources on the Internet regarding skincare, whether it’s through informational forums or YouTube tutorials. You might even discover at the brunch table which of your friends engage in skincare routines daily and you can share different tips and tricks to continue evolving your respective routines.
These products and trends have a way of bringing us together, as well as more connected to our bodies and health.
The stress hormone, cortisol, can do a lot of damage to our skin and overall health. While it can’t always be fully managed, depending on personal and professional lives, your skincare routine is fully within your control. A proper routine, even if performed once per day, can do wonders to combat the stresses we experience as we go about our lives, both mentally and from external factors such as environmental pollution.
