New Year’s Skin Resolutions
Many of us are making New Year’s resolutions at this time of year. Some of the ones I hear commonly are – get more exercise, eat better, lose weight, take more time for myself, do more for others – all good ones.
I also hear about goals for skin. Sometimes people feel that skin goals are “vain” (left over from our puritan heritage?), but we also understand the link between feeling good about how we look and our psychological well being. Skin concerns are legitimate goals because our skin affects the way we perceive ourselves and the way others perceive us.
I sometimes joke that we spend way more time and money on our cars than we do our skin, but we live in our skin every day, 24 hours a day. We wash and wax our cars, why not make our skin look great, too!
