5 Reasons to Take Your Skin Seriously

Your skin is often overlooked until there’s something wrong, such as a breakout or dryness. But your skin deserves the attention of an expert who can help you maintain good health and make the most of what you have — because healthy skin truly matters. Here are five reasons why you should take your skin seriously and seek out the services of an esthetician or dermatologist if you want to learn more about how to care for your skin properly

People Judge

People judge you by the way you look. Even though many people who are considered unattractive are loved and successful, people will still judge them by their looks. It's a shallow world that judges people based on what they see, but it's also where we live our lives. You can choose how you want to be judged and what kind of life you want your appearance to project. However, if you're trying to be confident about yourself and show off your inner beauty but have skin constantly causing problems because it's not taken seriously enough, then this post is for you!

Health Complications

These are a few health issues related to skin problems: psoriasis, eczema, herpes, warts, boils, and pimples. Psoriasis is a chronic condition where skin cells rapidly rise from the bottom layer of the skin. Eczema appears as patches of red, inflamed skin with dry, itchy patches. Herpes is an infection caused by the herpes simplex virus.

Warts are contagious growths on the body and can spread from direct contact with an infected person or their belongings. Boils are pus-filled clusters that usually appear in hair follicles or under the arms and can be painful if lanced and drained by a doctor. Pimples are more commonly known as acne vulgaris, consisting of whiteheads, blackheads, papules, and pustules.

Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs are caused when hair is cut and curls back into the skin. They are most often found on the face, neck, armpits, and pubic region. The pain of an ingrown hair can be intense, but if you treat it quickly and correctly, it won't become infected or cause any other serious problems. Follow these steps to soothe your pain:

●    Clean the area with soap and water or a damp cloth. This will help remove any dirt or bacteria that might have built up around your wound. 
●    Use an exfoliant like sugar or baking soda to gently scrub away dead cells from the surface of your skin. This will help prevent future ingrown hairs by removing old cells that might be trapping hairs in place.


Skin infections can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi and are very common. You can get an infection anywhere on your body, but the most common skin infections are athlete's foot and jock itch. The two most dangerous skin infections are MRSA (resistant staph) and AIDS. 

Skin infections can be very serious if left untreated for too long, so you should consult a doctor if you're unsure what type of infection you have or need medical advice about treatment options.


Exfoliating is the key to maintaining an even skin tone and bright complexion. The dead cells that build up on your face result from not sloping off those old skin cells or wearing makeup for long periods. Exfoliation helps by ensuring your pores don't get clogged with all that excess build-up and cause blackheads, zits, and other blemishes.

Plus, a scrub will help remove excess oils that can make you more prone to breakouts. When you exfoliate regularly, you also have a better chance of slowing down aging because it will help keep your skin looking healthy and plump!


The most important takeaway is that having a healthy skin routine will help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. It doesn't have to be expensive or complicated, it just needs to be done. If you want your skincare routine to work for you and not against you, don't neglect it.
