πŸ’œ Realistic skin expectations

I feel that I'm seeing so many of us beating ourselves up about our inability to reach certain skincare goals. And this can be very demotivating as well as potentially difficult to deal with emotionally. We see so many glowing pictures with glass skin and other poreless individuals that make us look at our own faces with disgust and think why can't I have that. Well we can't, because no one can! Human skin has pores, hairs, texture and it sweats and blushes and gets acne and a rash and fine lines and hyperpigmentation and darker under eyes circles after a long night! And that is perfect and it's beautiful. Yes, skincare is something that can help us heal our scars and improve the texture etc, but that absolute perfection is unachievable and can affect how we feel about ourselves. Love your skin, be kind and patient to it, and be YOU πŸ’œ

Indeed. We shouldn't be too hard on ourselves. No one could love us more than anyone but ourselves.

i agree completely!πŸ‘πŸΌ let's not forget that all these "glass skin" pics are edited and/or achieved thanks to make up. SOOOOOO we need to let go of that fake and toxic trend. realistic goals and treating one or two concern after another is the easiest way to go, IMO of course.
