Skincare Changes Lives

Skincare Changes Lives

Skincare has existed for a long time. Some sources even say that skincare started in Egypt as far back as 3000 BCE.

Many teenagers struggle with their skin because of hormonal changes. Teens begin to have pimples or scars of acne that affect them emotionally. This can cause bullying and/ or nicknames.  This has prompted some teenagers to apply products to help clean their skin.

In the Fall of 2023, the students from Liberty High School were interviewed about skincare and how it changed their lives. Some teens think that the skincare products helped their self-esteem since they feel more comfortable with their new skin.  Martha Burgos, of Liberty High School, explains, “Skincare changes my self-esteem since now I feel my skin is healthy and it looks very good since I started using products on my face.” This demonstrates that if a teenager’s skin looks good, the person can feel more secure and it also inspires to them to continue taking care of their skin.

Martha Burgos, Nicolle Gomez and Jancy Lopez mentioned that taking care of their skin was a little confusing at the start because they did not know what products to use and how to use them. They watched YouTube videos to learn.

Skin type determines the steps one should take when deciding which product to use and how to apply it. For example, Jancy Lopez shares her experience in the process of finding her skin type. “Over time I was using different products that I saw on commercials that usually didn’t work on me because those products were for a specific type that wasn’t mine. However, with time I recognized my skin with videos and also with a dermatologist’s help. I had acne and I just wanted to not have acne.”

People sometimes have the thought that just girls need to take care of their skin. However, skin care is for everyone.  As Esteven Meza says, “We are in a generation where we do not pay attention to negative comments because I prefer to take care of myself and how I look.” One should not concern themselves with whether you are male or female when it comes to skincare.

Skin is part of our body and needs to be treated in the best way possible because it is exposed throughout our lives.
