We live in an internet-ruled, where social media and our phone take a toll on our everyday life decision, and while some great things have come out thanks to the power social media platforms can offer individuals, it has also distorted the real world with images of perfect bodies, faces, skin, and lifestyles, so sometimes it can be hard to feel confident about what you have or how you look in comparison to social media stars.
Being confident in our own skin can be hard at times, especially when we have access to so many other people we can compare ourselves with. When talking skincare, real skin has been threatened by multiple kinds of filters, photoshopped pictures, and fake skin-perfection goals, but skin is not perfect, is not poreless, and is not spotless. Our skin is different from everyone else’s, meaning no one but you knows what it truly needs to be healthy, or why it’s struggling.
But no matter your skin’s condition, there are some little steps you can take in order to start building up your own shield in order to be comfortable and in charge of how you see yourself, and how to appreciate the skin you’re in.
Build a skincare routine that makes sense for YOU
Don’t cover it up
Learn about skincare ingredients
Unfollow people who make you feel bad about your skin
Healthy doesn’t mean perfect
