Start Your Week with ASEA: Why Skin Care Is Self Care

Your skin is constantly repairing and regrowing itself, shedding cells throughout each day. As with all organs, your skin will perform better with proper maintenance. Good skincare can help prevent sun damage, sagging, wrinkles, and the harmful effects of time and environmental influences.

Prevention Is Easier than Correction

Putting in the effort now can save your skin in the future. Waiting for problems to arise leads to more extensive and severe problems down the road. Once any damage is done, it can be difficult to reverse. The sooner you can start to care for your skin, the better off you will be.

Slowing the Signs of Aging

As you age, your body’s internal processes slow down and take longer to complete or recharge. Skin cell turnover slows down, and signs of aging start to set in. Reducing the signs of aging is easier to do if you take precautions before they start happening.

Over time, the layers of your skin become thinner and contain fewer structure proteins like collagen, which gives your skin its shape. Loss of collagen may make your skin appear more veiny, thin, and prone to wrinkles. 

Sunspots and liver spots are flat spots on the skin that appear after years of sun exposure. Patchy discoloration can occur on the chest as we age. Similar to sunspots, these differing pigments can be caused by damage to the skin after sun exposure. Inflammation and hyperpigmentation can occur when there isn’t enough moisture in the skin. 

Boost Confidence and Encourage a Healthy Lifestyle

According to the US National Institute of Health, those with better routines tend to have better self-esteem and optimism. Studies have found that a skincare routine, an exercise routine, a meditation routine, and prioritizing your health give you a surge of confidence-boosting chemicals. Taking care of yourself helps your mental health, and those who follow daily self-care routines are more likely to be successful in business, education, and relationship outcomes.

Starting and ending each day with a skincare routine will save you money, stress, and help you prioritize yourself and your own care throughout the day. See why ASEA’s RENUAdvanced® Skincare system is a complete way to start your day.
