Why Healthy Skin is So Important
It’s the season for giving thanks — and while you may be thankful for your loved ones, your career, and even your health — when was the last time you said you were thankful for having great skin? We’re not just talking about acne-free skin, we mean healthy, vibrant skin.
Here are our top three reasons why your skin’s health is so important — and how practicing gratitude can help keep it healthy.
1. Your skin is your first defense against illness.
Over the past two years, we’ve spent plenty of time preventing illness and trying to keep our bodies healthy. But, have you ever stopped to think how important your skin is in this process?
Your skin is your largest organ, and specific skin cells called Langerhans cells exist solely to prevent pathogens, bacteria, and viruses from entering your body. This means keeping your skin healthy helps to keep your entire body healthy — and can even indicate that something may be amiss internally.
2. Your skin keeps you safe.
In addition to keeping you healthy, your skin keeps you protected from injuries. Your skin regulates your body temperature to ensure you’re not too hot or too cold. And, if you are injured — such as by a cut or curling iron burn — your body works hard to heal those wounds.
3. It’s the first thing the world sees.
Your skin is one of the first things a person may notice about you — and clear skin can help you feel more confident in these situations. Whether it’s a date, a new job, or an important event, having clear, radiant, wrinkle-free skin can help you put your best foot forward.
Keep Your Skin Shining Bright
Now that you know how important your skin is — you should know how to keep it healthy! From mindfulness to at-home routines and treatments, here are some top tips:
1. Practice gratitude.
Take advantage of the spirit of the season and make time to think about the things you’re grateful for. Whether that’s keeping a journal or mindfully meditating, practicing gratitude can help reduce stress, prevent skincare blemishes, and overall lead to a happier, healthier life.
2. Work on your at-home routine.
There’s no better time to kiss those harmful skincare products goodbye. While some new products that hit the market may make big claims — they can actually damage your skin. Talk to your esthetician about what top-of-the-line products you should be using, and what the best brands are.
3. Try new skincare treatments for a healthy complexion.
From facials to laser treatments and dermal fillers — there’s a whole list of treatments that can help keep your skin not only feeling healthy but looking healthy and radiant.
