How can skincare be connected to mental health?

An expected question that must have popped up in your head to which we’d like to say that skincare is another way that leads to self-care.

Taking good care of your skin will improve your feeling of self-worth and help you feel more confident about yourself. When negativity is taking over, a little bit of self-care helps you stay afloat. Doing nice things for oneself gives a strong feeling of attainment.

Being regular with a skincare routine promotes mental health benefits that help you battle daily stressors and give your mind and body a much-needed break.

According to cosmetic companies, skincare products when contacted with our skin trigger positive emotions resulting in a positive effect on your skin.

Skincare is gratifying as with consistent skincare routines, you are more likely to see visible effects such as smooth and glowing skin, and no doubt it boosts one’s self-esteem, which will eventually lift up the mood.

When stressed, your body primarily the nervous system releases stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, cortisol increases the oil production in your skin glands which can result in clogged pores and acne breakouts.

In between all the pressure in today’s time keeping up with the personal and professional life can be really exhausting and sometimes overwhelming to the extent that these daily pressures start taking a toll on your mental health. Even though you may be practicing meditation, exercise, yoga, etc. but has this thought ever crossed your mind that a good regular skincare routine can help you stay calm and relaxed and can boost your mood on a daily basis.

Body researches have shown that self-care helps in battling mental health issues Skin Care is not just skincare anymore it’s more of SELF CARE.

Having a nice skincare routine can be really helpful as you have something really peaceful to look forward to. The time you’ll spend on yourself doing your routine will be your ‘me time’ away from all the stress and tension, a little bit of pampering is never harmful and you can take your self-care time a notch higher by adding a tinch of your favorite music or some amazing white noise. I know you can totally imagine the vibe.

At the end of the day, you should know that eventually, things will fall into place but meanwhile, you must step out of your hectic lifestyle, take a deep breath, sit back & relax and celebrate yourself with a little bit of self-care.
