How skin affects self-confidence

Posted by National Skin Cancer Centres on Jun 11, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Your skin is one of the first things other people notice about you, and it is probably one of the first things you notice about yourself when you look in the mirror every morning. Your skin health has a powerful impact on your emotional and mental wellbeing, as poor skin tone, fine lines and blemishes can dramatically undermine your self-confidence. Unhealthy or damaged skin can also be indicative of more serious internal problems manifesting on the surface.

Here’s how healthy skin can change your outlook on life.

Beauty is more than skin deep, but it can be difficult to feel attractive when the face you present to the world each day is blemished, sagging, tired or dull. Makeup is not always effective at hiding imperfections, especially structural issues like volume loss, and can’t always be worn. It is refreshing to have naturally flawless skin without relying on cosmetics, knowing that your skin isn’t its best underneath. Instead, implement a skin care routine that will solve skin issues (such as dryness, acne and fine lines) and help maintain healthy skin.

 

Healthy skin increases your confidence

Skin problems can affect your confidence and self-esteem all the way from teenage acne to fine lines in middle-age. Facing daily life becomes much easier when you don’t need to deal with the insecurities brought about by unhealthy or damaged skin.

 

Healthy skin helps you become more social

You can be less self-conscious when facing any social situation when your skin problems are under control. You don’t need to put so much thought into how you present yourself or what other people might think of you when your skin looks fresh and healthy.

 

Healthy skin is part of a healthy lifestyle

A poor skin care routine, frequent breakouts, age spots, fine lines and other skin issues can be symptoms of an unhealthy lifestyle, or even indicate more serious issues such as dehydration or medical problems in your internal organs. Keeping up a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly will improve your overall health, which will in turn enhance your skin’s appearance. Good general health will also help you feel comfortable in your body and give you more energy to get through the day.

 

Although you can’t stop the ageing process or avoid getting the occasional breakout, it is possible to control skin damage and try to slow the signs of ageing. Maintaining a healthy routine can help you look good and feel more confident in your own skin.
