91% of People Say Skin Has Improved in Pandemic
Obviously there is something wrong with me.
I literally laughed out loud when I saw this survey. Yes, this pandemic has caused me to wear way less makeup than I normally would which is great for our skin. However, this pandemic has been stressful which is not great for our skin and can cause us to breakout. Not to mention, I'm sure we've eaten our fair share of junk food during this time.
I've also neglected to wash my face on some days, but that's beside the point.
My skin hasn't been this bad in a long time. I've consistently had breakout for the better part of the last two months. Oddly enough they're only on the left side of my face, so maybe there's something else I'm doing to cause them. Either way, it's super annoying to hear that people are experiencing their best skin ever in this pandemic.
A survey conducted by CeraVe says that 91 percent of people have noticed improvements in their skin this year. Of the reasons listed, three stood out from the bunch. 46 percent say they've dedicated more time to their skin care routine. I mean, it's something to do these days. 45 percent believe drinking more water is the reason, while 44 percent credit less time outdoors in the elements.
I would add the fact that we are touching our faces less to the list. Dirty, greasy hands are never a good thing on our faces. Thanks to COVID, we are all being extra vigilant about not touching our faces with our germ-y hands.
As for me and my face, I must be stressing out. We all are at some level, and according to experts, we are stressing in new ways. Finding ways to manage that stress is crucial for your overall health and your gorgeous face.
