Sometimes it seems like skincare addicts, lovers, gurus and professionals share a world to themselves. Tell someone who doesn’t share your interest in skincare that your draining your lymphatic system – what sort of look would you get?
Their understanding of moisturizers is limited. They hear about toners on occasion, but aren’t sure of their purpose. And they have no clue about face serums.
Those of us who passionately care about our skin needs live on an island of beauty all to ourselves. And there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, we find some humor in it. Here are 8 quotes you’ll understand. Your friend whose skincare routine consists of lukewarm water to cleanse and a random drugstore moisturizer to hydrate probably won’t get it.
By the way, you do know that purchasing skincare products at drugstores is a huge no-no, right?
Quotes and Images Only Skincare Addicts Understand
When your friend sees an image like this, he/she will be aghast. “Is this supposed to be a Halloween costume?”
You, on the other, understand that this image is one step closer to more beautiful, glowing skin. Sheet masks have vitamins and minerals to treat your skin so you can skip a couple spa visits.
Your friend who is less knowledgeable about skincare will, again, question what in a moisturizer makes you a better person. Let’s explain the benefits of a high-quality moisturizer:
- It makes your skin look and feel younger
- Moisturizes and plumps your skin
- It encourages skin elasticity
- Keeps wrinkles away through hydration
Let’s not look at this from a superficial perspective only: we all know that when we look good, we feel good, too. When we feel good, we slowly gain more confidence. So, yes: “I’m a better person when I’m moisturized.”
Come on, this is just hilarious. And true for many.
In our pursuit to find the best skincare products, from moisturizers to exfoliators, we burn deep holes in our wallets. Sometimes the products are essential and highly beneficial. Other times, we’re jumping on the bandwagon. We’re drinking the kool-aid. We’re developing a serious case of fomo: fear of missing out. Just look at the increased popularity of the jade roller!
A personal favorite. Who doesn’t enjoy coming home to a much desired skincare product neatly packaged and waiting at our doorstep? It’s like a child on Christmas morning.
Properly shaped eyebrows can redefine your face and turn you into a better version of yourself. It’s almost magical. This quote is a freebie, because even your friend (you know, the less knowledgeable one), gets his or her eyebrows waxed or threaded at least twice a month.
Just tell this to your friend who does all her skincare shopping at Walgreens or CVS. Meanwhile, you’re feverishly on the prowl for all-natural, preferably organic skincare products. You’re reading and researching ingredients. They’re picking up the most attractive looking skincare product in the aisle.
They just don’t get it, you know?
Because you just have to have it. #Shelfie.
Your friend: “What’s wrong with St. Ives?”
We will not dignify that with a response.
