Everybody knows that the skin is the largest organ in the body. It may not be as important as our brain, heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys which play vital roles in our survival the skin still is as fundamental as every other organ to keep us alive and healthy. I am not here to explain human anatomy, though. I am here to promote what most of us (including me) neglects --- SKINCARE.
Not everybody has the same type of skin. But we we were all born with the same baby skin --- soft, smooth, and needs extra-care. Our skin develops and reacts to how we treat it as we grow. Our skin endured hours of sun exposure, extreme weather changes, cuts, burns, scarring and everything in between. Our skin is basically the first warning sign of our body's overall health. The moment we fell ill, we look at our skin -- is it too red, too hot, too cold or has it developed bumps and rashes. And then we start from there. So, when and where did we stop treating our skin with extra-care?
I was once rushed to the ER, the only thing stuck in my mind was how the medical practitioner noticed and noted on her pad that my skin was DRY. This happened more than 10 years ago. I was unemployed and just graduated from college then. I took my first job and did my skincare research. I couldn't afford a weekly/monthly derma appointment, so I started working on whatever works -- bath oils, exfoliants, body lotions, facial cleanser, moisturizer and sunblock. Most basic stuff (as I have read). I now have more stuff incorporated into my skincare regimen and I'd gladly share everything on a different post. This is basically how it started.
I am Maria Lourdes. This is my skincare journey. I'd like you to join the bandwagon with me. I don't have the perfect skin but I am willing to share what works for me. As I have said, skincare is a long and evolving process. Let's take it together.
Tell me what skincare concerns, issues and whatver skincare stuff you'd like us to discuss and let's talk about it one post at a time. Share your thoughts in the comments!
