Opening Statement:

Every year, in the month of June, celebrates the idea of loving and enhancing your skin by opting for numerous skincare methods. The aim is to increase your confidence by providing tools that may tackle issues such as blackheads, acne, dry skin, etc. Yes, believe it or not, loving your skin is as important as taking care of your physical and mental health, after all, your skin is literally you at face value and is the first thing that people notice. Take the time out this month, stop being lazy, and start some skincare routines that will have you glowing in no time. Skin care is important for everyone, including those who are disabled. Unfortunately, with all the needed care that various disabilities require, skincare and sometimes also hygiene is very often overlooked by parents and caregivers.

History Of Beautiful in Your Skin Month

·         While everyone is beautiful in their own way, the fact is, nourished and smooth skin can do wonders for one’s confidence. This is because your skin determines how old or tired you look, or even how attractive your photos come out! Beautiful In Your Skin Month was formed to encourage people to love their skin and convince them to invest in a proper skincare regime. The purpose? To feel more confident in your skin than ever before.

·         The idea of loving your skin is not a new one and has existed for centuries. For instance, in 3000 B.C. Egypt, the wealthy spent hours perfecting their appearance with the use of makeup, products that kept them safe from the harsh glare of the sun, as well as natural remedies to enhance the quality of their skin.

·         The ancient Greeks and Romans also valued skincare and used honey as a natural moisturizer, whereas natural oils and sand were used as sunscreen. But this was not all, they even had slaves who were appointed to pull out hair from unwanted areas on their bodies. This was done to make their skin appear smooth. Like the Egyptians, they too spent hours treating their skin by taking baths in fragrant oils.

Closing Statement and Recap:

As I learned by researching this awareness topic, it all started in the year 1870, as Vaseline became a household moisturizer. Within a few years, skincare products were launched by companies such as Elizabeth Arden, Maybelline, and Max Factor. This month teaches men and women to love and nourish their skin as it is one of the most important parts of their bodies. This month is also a way to encouraging self-love as well as self-confidence to all. If you look good, you will feel good, if not GREAT! This is the exact encouragement and confidence that people with disabilities need! There are so many products that can make a great difference to your skincare routine and June is the perfect time to spread awareness regarding how every person can achieve beautiful skin and feel absolutely Fantastic about themselves!
