Boost your beauty confidence
It’s amazing how beauty can affect your overall confidence. Get a great haircut and you step out of the salon feeling like you can conquer the world; realise you’ve applied your self tan incorrectly and you want to hide in your bedroom for a week. But it’s the skin related issues that can really crush your self-confidence. In a recent beautyheaven survey, 25 per cent of respondents* admitted that they would consider taking the day off because of bad skin. That’s one in four women who feel too embarrassed by the condition of their complexions to face their friends and colleagues! So what are some of the biggest confidence killers when it comes to skin? Here are three of your most common skin issues:
Beauty confidence crusher #1: breakouts
Probably the number one skin-related crisis, breakouts have the unfortunate ability to leave us feeling self-conscious and anxious. And yes, while we’re often the ones making things worse for ourselves by squeezing and picking at our pimples (which can spread the breakout and cause redness or scarring), it’s only because we’re coming from a place of desperation – willing to do anything if we think it will help clear our complexions.
Beauty confidence crusher #2: oiliness
You know how when you’re a bit sweaty you feel a little self-conscious talking to people because you know your face is all red and shiny? Well, imagine suffering that shine EVERY SINGLE DAY. Not only does it make you feel embarrassed about the constant oil slick on your face, but you’d also probably spend a large part of the day worrying about whether your make-up is still in place. It’s a definite distraction, and not in a good way.
Beauty confidence crusher #3: dullness
This one’s an issue that doesn’t seem obvious, but it’s definitely something that can get you down. If all you want is soft, radiant-looking skin, then a face that flakes and looks lacklustre will slowly but surely whittle away at your beauty confidence. Like it’s oily counterpart, a dull, dry complexion will also have an impact on how your make-up sits on your skin, so even when you’re made up there’s a big chance you’ll never feel completely happy with the way you look.
The simple solution
The good news is that despite these common and sometime soul-crushing skin concerns, there is a quick and easy way to start improving these issues and boosting your beauty confidence. It all starts with choosing the right cleansing products – those that can keep breakouts at bay, regulate oil production, and keep your skin nourished and hydrated. The products in the Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamins & Extract range do all this by combining effective cleansing technology with skin loving nutrients like avocado and pomegranate extract and vitamin E. The Wash works hard to eliminate the daily dirt, oil and impurities that can cause breakouts; the Scrub helps to remove dead skin cells and deep clean your pores; and both simultaneously nourish your skin allowing you to have a more healthy, radiant-looking complexion. How’s that for a beauty confidence booster!
