National Love Your Skin Day Date in the current year: July 8, 2024

National Love Your Skin Day National Love Your Skin Day is celebrated annually on July 8. It was created to raise awareness of the benefits of proper skincare and encourage people to develop a skincare routine and actually stick to it.

The skin is the largest organ of the human body, and it is very important to take proper care of it not just the sake of aesthetics but also because healthy skin is important for your overall health. Proactively taking care of your skin is easier and cheaper than dealing with various skin issues in the future.

Let’s delve a little bit more into the importance of skincare. First and foremost, skin acts as a natural barrier that protects our internal organs from germs, pollutants and sun radiation, as well as helps keep fluid in the body, preventing dehydration. Skin dryness can lead to cracks, which makes your body more vulnerable to infections. In addition, skin needs to be protected from ultraviolet rays, because they speed up skin aging (a phenomenon known as photoaging) and can cause skin cancer.

The aesthetic aspect of skincare is important, too. Taking care of your skin will help you look your best without having to resort to makeup (not that it is anything wrong with makeup and people who like it, of course!). Healthy, clean, and glowing skin will boost your self-confidence and make you feel much better about yourself.

Finally, taking good care of your skin is good for your mental health. A skincare routine is a ritual, and rituals are believed to improve mental health because they help reduce stress, create stability in an unstable and fast-paced world, and foster a sense of control over one’s life. In addition, there are many skincare procedures that help to relax and bring enjoyment.

National Love Your Skin Day was launched in 2020 by Dermastart, an American company that produces professional skincare treatments under several brands and hosts educational classes for skincare professionals to provide them with the latest scientific and technological knowledge. The main goal of the observance is to highlight the importance of proper skincare and encourage people to do something beneficial for their skin.

There are many ways to celebrate National Love Your Skin Day depending on how much time you have and how much effort you are ready to put into your skincare routine. Here are a few ideas:

  • If you don’t know your skin type, find it out, then revise your skincare routine and tweak it to meet your skin’s needs.
  • Organize your skincare cabinet and get rid of the products you don’t use, especially if they’re past their expiration date.
  • Treat yourself to a relaxing face mask.
  • Get a facial at a beauty salon or spa.
  • Splurge on quality skincare products.
  • Promise yourself to drink enough water and never skip sunscreen in order to keep your skin healthy and youthful.
  • Book an appointment with a beautician or dermatologist to address the specific needs and issues of your skin.
