Lies you are telling yourself about your skin
We live in a world of frequent altered reality and we are often conditioned to be polite and may tell people what they want to hear. We tend to do this because we want to be liked by others and we don’t realize others are doing the same thing to us. Eventually, we begin to lie to ourselves because the truth is painful. Here are the most common lies I hear from my patients.
My skin hasn’t changed a bit.
If you really believe this, get yourself under a Visia complexion analysis or even a magnifying mirror to see if it’s really true. More than likely, it’s not.
I don’t need skin care, I get Botox.
Botox relaxes wrinkles, but it doesn’t replace skin care. My patients who utilize a good skin care regimen age more gracefully and require less Botox treatments over the years.
I have always had great skin, so I don’t need to take care of it.
If you are blessed with great skin, you got really lucky and you should absolutely take care of it. Good skin care will leave you looking and feeling your best for years to come.
I have terrible skin and there is nothing I can do about it.
This is by far the worst lie I’ve heard people tell themselves. These are usually people who have tried numerous skin care products without improvement, most likely purchased at the drug store or department store. Most skin care problems can be repaired. You need a performance skin care product that targets your skin care needs.
Lying, especially to ourselves, serves no purpose. We are better off accepting reality and putting forth an effort to change and improve ourselves. Only then will we be able to live life to the fullest.
