Hands Off!

“It is estimated that the average person touches their face between 3-5 times a minute.”

We all do it: stare at ourselves two inches away from the mirror, fussing and picking at blemishes, wrinkles, or whatever we find. Enough is enough. I am taking a hands off pledge, and I hope that you will join me!

By taking a pledge to not touch your face, you are accomplishing two things. First and foremost, you prevent disrupting the skin, which causes inflammation and introduces bacteria. You know what that means? Reddness, blemishes, and clogged pores. Secondly, you spend less time with your face pressed up to the mirror agonizing over what you deem to be less-than perfect skin.

Leave it be. Over time you will find that your skin actually improves because it is not being bombarded by your sticky fingers. You may also find that you will come to accept the imperfections because you don’t have them under a magnifying glass. I don’t always condone the phrase “what you don’t know can’t hurt you”, but in this case, I must agree. Leave the magnifying glass and bright lights to your esthetician and learn to embrace that beautiful face !

Take the hands off pledge and let me know how it goes!
