Skin Care Quotes to Live By!
We all look for some inspiration online and there are many great skin care quotes out there. Mostly, it is about taking care of ourselves and making a conscious effort to maintain our skin. Here at First Derm we also frequently find ourselves recommending various advice to our patients. From this, we have devised some skin care quotes of our own that will no doubt help you too. Sometimes it’s the simplest of things that keep our skin in check but above all, it’s usually about consistency!
Fortunately, if you keep things simple and easy to follow, you’re more likely to be consistent. Our skin care quotes are exactly that. Simple advice you can follow without taking too much time out of your day.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
This one we should all be following by now. Moisturizing is key to healthy skin and we suggest moisturizing every day. This keeps your skin from drying out. This is integral to your skins wellbeing. If it dries out, this can cause cracked skin and even exacerbate conditions like eczema.
Avoid Hot Water
Obviously if you’re washing your dishes then this is a different story. Although we would recommend gloves to prevent skin fissures and if you can, bring the heat down a little.
What we’re referring to here, however, is hot showers. You must be careful not to over do it no matter how tempting! Try to use lukewarm water at best and never directly in the face. You can learn more about hot showers here.
Exercise to Revitalize
Another important aspect to healthy skin is exercise. Exercise to revitalize is a skin care quote to live by. Not only will exercise get your blood moving and improve your skin, it also, quite obviously comes with many benefits to your health.
When that blood starts pumping your skin cells start receiving more oxygen and nutrients. It is for this reason that we recommend exercise to revitalize!
De-Stress is Best
We know this one is easier said than done but stress is a big one to avoid if you want healthy skin. It plays a negative role in both our skin and overall well being. It affects our skin in many ways, both indirectly such as being too occupied to take care or directly such as skin inflammation.
Simplicity for Consistency
As mentioned at the beginning, above all else, it’s about consistency. This is a skin care quote you can take for all walks of life. Be it exercise, diet or learning a new skill, consistency is everything. As humans, we developed our cognitive skills through consistency and it is therefore also important for our skin.
If you have finally found the moisturizer that works or a routine that suits you, then the answer is simple. Keep doing it! This consistency will work wonders for your skin, primarily because this means maintaining your skin routine for longer. Remember there is not a quick fix to healthy skin.
So, how do we achieve this consistency? By keeping things simple. If your routine is too complex it can be off-putting. For example, maybe you don’t have time or really don’t feel like doing it that day. If your routine is simple and easy, you’re less likely to feel that way. Try to remember this when you start adding more layers to your skin care routine.
If in doubt get it checked
