We have heard the famous slogan from Dr. Maya Angelou, “people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” People are like skin, our skin remembers how we care and treat it. The aging process is an intrinsic and extrinsic process consisting of conditions, changes, environment, genetics, and skin care routines. The intrinsic factors of skin aging are heavily influenced by genetic coding resulting in facial changes causing fine lines, skin unevenness, and wrinkles. While our extrinsic factors aremore controllable like excessive exposure to sunlight, inadequate use of moisturizers, poor hydration, and insufficient skin care routine. Positively, we may not be able to maintain our baby soft skin, but we can impact and slow down the aging process with effective skin products and routines.
The skin being the largest organ of the body experiences a vast array of cold-hot conditions, environmental changes, and from humid to sultry conditions. Add all these conditions together and you have an amalgamation of impacts and influences that leads to aging and wrinkled skin. Our skin is forever experiencing the changes and shifting conditions leading to why it is most important to properly care, clean, hydrate, and maintain an effective skin care routine.
So, how can you get flawless skin to enhance and support your inner beauty? Well, it all starts with you being friendly and kind to your skin as you would treat a best friend. Glowing skin is always the result of using timeless products which are good hydrators like glycerin which helps the skin maintain moisture producing a youthful skin tone. The addition of skin strengthening components like niacinamide which helps to combat against the extrinsic factors like environmental exposures. Plus, the addition of vitamins C and E to one’s skin care routine further helps to strengthen and support the skin care process.
Positively, skin care is not an immovable target as one ages, instead skin care can be an enjoyable and opportunistic journey to dynamically support one’s inner and outer beauty. Yes, genetics are important to skin care, but nurture, love, support, and reduced stress are factors too. Focus on the positives of skin care and your skin will glow with the results of the nurture and it will thank you for the way that you treated it.
