We have all struggled to maintain a good skincare routine. Too many things to do? It takes too long? When will it end? Whilst it can be challenging, having a good skincare routine will help you conquer your skin condition, achieving healthier skin and a happier mind. Your future self will thank you for the efforts you are putting into your skin every day! Most importantly, consistency with a good skincare routine is key to getting results.
Here are 3 ways to find the motivation to do your skincare right:
1. Remember that you are doing this for your future self, and every time you do your skincare, you are helping yourself to have healthy skin in the future!
2. If you are struggling to do your routine, then try cutting back the number of steps and time it takes to do your routine. Start with the essentials only. If you have acne – cleanser, moisturiser, and sunscreen – and gradually work up from there. If you atopic dermatitis - creams from your doctor (if any) and moisturise your skin twice a day.
3. Remember that it only takes a few minutes per day, and just do it – try relying on discipline and commitment to self-care.
I have had eczema my whole life - atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema. It is frustrating most of the time but I have been able to manage my flare ups thanks to recommendations from my friends with eczema. I'm here to help others like me get better too!
