Experts say that whenever you develop a skin condition, it will not only affect your skin or your physical appearance but your emotional and mental well-being as well. By taking care of your skin, you will enjoy a healthier, younger-looking appearance without undesirable skin conditions, which are known to lower self-confidence.
Proper skin care can go a long way in improving your overall beauty and good health and it can also affect your self-confidence. Knowing you are doing the best for your skin will really help with your self-confidence, help create your own glow!
Psychologists have long understood the connection between self-confidence and physical appearance. Low self-esteem and self-confidence can cause a major setback for anyone’s personality, growth and development. And since skin is connected to self-confidence, having beautiful skin can actually make one live a richer, more satisfying, and truly successful life.
There is no denying the fact that first impression lasts, at least to most people. Moreover, when you have healthy skin, you are able to face daily activities and life’s challenges with more confidence. With a healthy skin care regimen you will also find your overall confidence is boosted, resulting in a renewed, positive outlook.
The Skin-Ego Theory
[frame src=”https://rg-cell.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/brain.jpg” width=”250″ height=”259″ alt=”The Skin-Ego Theory” align=”right”]“Le Moi-peau” or “skin-ego” is a physical and emotional part of us, through which we come into contact with nature and other living beings, and endure the action of the elements. It is also a means of exercising power over others, of captivating them, influencing their impressions and judgement, and of conquering them.
The Skin Ego is part of our specific identity: it expresses the mutual relationship between our psyche, thoughts and emotions and the skin and it is part of the most modern trends in cosmetic care. Our perception of our body influences whether and how we accept our identity. This positive relationship with the body, which is a true driving force of life, in fact shapes our relationship with others.
Proper skin care facilitates the full development of this “cooperation” between the psyche and the skin, allowing you to be satisfied, happy and full of self confidence…. in other words – beautiful.
The Psychological Impact of Skin Problems
The research from the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) found that having a skin condition can really affect your confidence.
[quote_box author=”Anthony Bewley,” profession=”BAD chairman”]Having a skin condition can really affect your confidence and self-esteem. 85 per cent of our patients are worried about the impact it can have on their mental health.[/quote_box]
[frame src=”https://rg-cell.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/skin-problem.jpg” width=”250″ height=”162″ alt=”The Psychological Impact of Skin Problems” align=”left”]According to BAD, skin problems can lead to embarrassment, lowered self-esteem and self-confidence, anxiety and even depression. Furthermore, the skin of the face is often sensitive, and therefore more susceptible to damage and skin problems. In fact, experience with serious skin conditions can have lasting psychological effects, which can lead to social withdrawal. Clinical depression, social phobia, and certain anxiety disorders have been associated with skin problems.
Beautiful Skin Starts With Healthy Skin
It’s difficult to feel attractive without having healthy skin. When you have good skin, your self-esteem is also improved since you feel in charge of your health and body.
Accordingly, it is important to nourish our bodies with vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants to developing new healthy skin cells. Feeding our skin system—which runs deep below the surface—helps the constantly renewing skin cells to become more vibrant and healthy.
By encouraging cell renewal and providing protection from environmental damage, a good skincare regime and professional skin treatments can help stimulate production of new collagen and reduce the build-up of dead skin cells. The result is, a reconditioned skin texture, an even tone, less redness and a smoother, silkier, more vibrant and younger looking skin. That is exactly what the RG-CELL does.
When your skin has an even tone and a smooth, soft texture, you will not only look beautiful on the outside, you will glow on the inside as well. Remember, take good care of your skin and it will take great care of you.
