What Is Skin Investment
Skin investment is a trend that means putting effort into your skin health by investing in skincare products or by undergoing surgical or non-surgical skin procedures. The rising popularity of skin-vestment shows that people are more skin, health and appearance-conscious than ever. With the rise of social media, people are more aware of the permanent damaging effects of neglecting their skin health. This brought a sudden interest in skincare products and cosmetics that promise to give your skin a youthful and healthy glow.
But investing in your beauty products is not only for aesthetic reasons. Our skin is the body's largest organ body, and its main role is to act as a barrier and protect us from environmental stressors, toxins, and infections. Moreover, having great skin can give you a sense of satisfaction and improve emotional and mental health. To know more why you need to invest in our beauty products, read below!
5 Reasons to Invest in Your Beauty Products
Reason #1: Boost Self Confidence
Don’t you just hate it when you have an important event to go to and suddenly you wake up in the morning with a pimple or an acne breakout? Or when you feel unattractive because you see how dull, tired, and aging your skin is? It is human nature to feel self-conscious especially if you feel like people are staring at you; all you want to do is to be invisible and blend in with the surroundings. Investing in a good skincare routine can help gain your confidence back.
Glowing skin can make you feel beautiful and boost your self-esteem by fighting insecurities while you are suffering from poor skin health. Sporting healthy skin can make you more likely to engage in a social situation knowing that your past skin insecurities no longer affect you. Compliments from others can also make you feel good about yourself. So, start practicing self-love and take care of your skin to boost your confidence.

Reason #2: Prevent Skin Damage
Preventing skin issues to arise is better than waiting for skin damage to happen. Our skin is our first line of defense against bacteria and other external stressors. Due to frequent exposure to the sun, our skin can easily get sun damaged and show early signs of aging. UV (ultraviolet) light can cause cellular damage and photoaging — frequent and long sun exposure can cause you to develop wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. One thing you can do to prevent sun damage is to use sunscreen daily.
According to the skin cancer foundation, 90 percent of changes to the skin are caused by direct sun exposure. Additionally, using sunscreen not only can help prevent skin cancer but also be used as an anti-aging weapon and defense from photoaging.
Use at least SPF (Sun Protection Factor) 30 daily and apply every 3-4 hours especially if you will be under the sun for a long time.
Reason #3: Ward Off Diseases
The skin helps your body ward off diseases by fighting bacteria from entering your skin and body. The skin also supports the immune system by alerting it of potential pathogen threats. The skin is a host of different good and bad bacteria known as skin microbiota. A balanced skin microbiota is essential in ensuring optimal skin function. So how can you make sure that you have a balanced skin microbiome? Here are some ways:
- Eat a balanced diet and keep hydrated
- Take care of your gut (read more about it here)
- Don’t use harsh soaps and skin products
- Maintain a working skincare routine
- Check your stress levels
Reason #4: Slow Down Photoaging
Investing in skincare and beauty products can help slow down photoaging. As you may know, photoaging is caused by UV damage and can cause premature aging. Although you cannot completely reverse the effects of photoaging, you can take the steps necessary to prevent it.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles, dark spots, and fine lines. When applied to the skin as a serum, it can help minimize the appearance of blemishes and give you a natural healthy glow. Check out Pure Biology Vitamin C serum here.
You may also try adding vitamin supplements to your diet to keep your skin and body healthy inside out. Here are some of our favorites:

Reason #5: Give Your Skin a Healthy Boost
