It’s kind of hard to feel like something like skincare matters in the kind of time we are in. It’s chaotic, depressing, and scary. But since skincare is self-care and self-care is really important right now, it’s a good thing to think about.
Also Chandler. Chandler is always a good thing to think about. (#favorite friend) I mean look at him, don’t you just feel better seeing him? I do.
But really, do any of us have a lot of discretionary income for expensive products right now? Maybe. Maybe not. The good thing is that there are options. You can spend a lot or you can spend a little, but what matters is that you do something.
But why is it important to do something? Well, for the most part, because we need to feel normal. We need to feel cared for (even if we are our own carer). And we need to make sure that we don’t let our stress snowball and keep us from doing basic maintenance because basic maintenance is KEY to NORMALCY.
Keeping up with cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting our skin helps us look good, and when we look good, we feel good- and when we feel good, we feel strong (or at least strongER).
So keep up the good work on that self-care. If you need help, give me a holler. I’ve got lots of great ideas for affordable skincare and self-care. In the meantime, stay well!!
