Have you ever met someone who constantly complained about something but failed to take the steps necessary to remedy it? Maybe youíve been guilty of this yourself. Whether itís a job you hate, a lifestyle change that needs to be made or money issues, just about everyone can relate to the bad habit of making excuses instead of doing what needs to be done. Even skincare falls under this category. The next time you neglect your complexion because of an excuse, just know that failing to take action could end up doing more harm than good for your skincare routine (or lack of).
Sometimes people have valid reasons for not taking action on something. However, most times those very reasons end up becoming excuses. Not happy with your complexion? Are you sick of breakouts, discoloration and other skincare related woes? Itís important to know that your skin can only become healthy with your help. Below are some of the most popular excuses people have for not sticking to a diligent skincare routine, as well as the solutions to take care of the problem.
Skincare Products Are Too Expensive:
In case you havenít noticed, there are a score of skincare products designed to not only tackle skincare issues but are available at an affordable price. No one says you have to purchase the highest priced items. Shop around your local store and compare prices of the various lines - youíre bound to find products that will suit even the tightest budgets. Additionally, shopping online is an even better way to get the best deal.
Thereís Too Many Products To Use, Itís Confusing:
The most basic breakdown of the skincare products you need for your complexion are cleanser, toner and moisturizer. Three items - thatís it! Throw in a good exfoliating product and youíve got a total of four to deal with on a daily basis. Still too much for you? There are plenty of 2-in-1 and even 3-in-1 products, which cut down on time and confusion.
Iím Too Lazy To Put On SPF Everyday:
Sure, slathering sunscreen with SPF on your complexion during the summer can be a hassle but the truth is that UV rays have the ability to damage your skin all year-round. Does that mean you have to inconvenience yourself by putting on sunscreen every day? Nope! Women now have the option of purchasing makeup items and other related products that already contain SPF. There is also daily moisturizer rich in SPF that both men and women can benefit from. So thereís no extra step in your skincare routine or an additional product to deal with.
I Donít Have Time For A Full Blown Skincare Routine:
Considering that a normal regimen only consists of cleansing, toning (if necessary) and moisturizing in the morning when you wake up and before going to bed at night (as well as exfoliating once to twice a week), there really isnít a whole lot of time that needs to be devoted to this process. From beginning to end, your skincare routine can be completed in 5-10 minutes or less. Even the busiest person on the planet has five minutes to spare twice a day.
The next time you start making excuses neglecting your complexion, keep the following information in mind and know that each time you give in to your excuses, youíre not doing your skin any favors. Make the time and effort to age gracefully now and in the long run, looking great will be the least of your concerns.
