Skin matters for women and men alike

Life is an interesting journey. Are you thick-skinned? It’s one of those things that matters to us all, especially to us ladies in more ways than one. During a facial some months ago, the aesthetician noted my facial skin had thinned some; the suggestion was a more intense moisturizer. Are you a male? Well then surely you can appreciate the gender bias and the need for men especially to be thick-skinned in the more traditional meaning of thick-skinned. Man or Woman though, we often fail to appreciate loving the skin we’re in.

Skin Basics

Our skin is the outer covering of our body. It is the largest organ and has up to seven layers of ectodermal tissue and guards the underlying muscles, bones, ligaments and internal organs.

Focusing on the top … Loving the skin you’re in

Our skin is our body’s coat protecting us and helping us to stay warm when it’s cold, and cool when it’s hot, noted an article https://www.aad.org/public/kids/skin published by The American Academy of Dermatology.

Imagine a coat we considered extremely valuable; needless to say, much care would be taken with how it is washed and cared for. Yet, many of us, and might it be said more so men than women, tend to treat our body’s coat with scant courtesy.

Ironically, many of us are well focused on our self-presentation. So, we know to present our best image by dressing right for that job, that date or to help us generally through our life. And Business INSIDER supports this in an article entitled 9 REASONS why Your Image Is Everything http://www.businessinsider.com/why-your-image-is-everything-12-2011

Our Coat

We agree our image is important and we agree that our clothes support our image. Well, what about our coat being part of our self-presentation? Should we not take care of our self-presentation? In so doing we are not only positively impacting our self-image, but our appreciation and love of self, which increases positive thinking behaviours and attitudes. And these actually help us to be more resilient and tough-skinned to purposefully progress through life.

Self-Love Keys

Psych Central highlights https://blogs.psychcentral.com/success/2014/06/self-love-5-keys/ “Self-Love: 10 Keys.” And the Sixth Key is Celebrate Your Body.

“Bathe it, feed it, decorate it with clothes and jewellery you like, and honor it with healthy decisions. Regularly and consciously breathe and stretch. Eat nutritious and delicious food and savor it. Make sure your body gets proper rest and exercise. Ensure your body has passionate sex. Practice mindfulness to focus your awareness on the feeling of aliveness from within the body.”

Celebrating Our Coat … Bathe it

Putting first things first … how many of us consider how the soap we choose helps with our self-presentation. Our Soap can either strengthen or nourish our first layer of skin or dry and deplete our skin’s moisture.

We have heard of #gogreen and how it relates to our environment, but what about our bodies? There are some products that have been generally naturally proven to support skin nourishment. Then there are some natural products that we have proven over time seem to work for our skin. One I’ve noted for myself is Shea Butter. If you have an idea of what works for you, then you can celebrate your body by ordering a soap specially designed for loving the skin you are in. And, if not, there is still the opportunity to get a soap made from natural ingredients proven to be skin-loving and nourishing. Who knows, maybe in time you would realize what works and can then order your designer soaps ASAP from Triple A Soap Products … Authentically Advancing Attractiveness
