So here’s another daily tip from your friendly local dermatologist!
In all things in life, we need to have a plan. We need to anticipate problems and we need to anticipate how it’s not going to be a problem. Guys you know your skin, you know what you’re prone to. Are you prone to acne? That’s one type of problem. Are you prone to dry skin? That’s another type of problem. Are you prone to fill in the blank? So for all of these things, we have a ton of videos on them to help you become educated so that you can become your biggest advocate. So once you’ve watched those, how do you do the tips every day to get you to where you need to go? Where you need to go is living a life unencumbered by any diseases of the skin, hair or nails. How do you get there? Now everybody’s different in what motivates them and everybody’s different as to how they get to their point of completion. Some people need an accountability partner, so if you do, ask a friend and they check in with you. Some people just need a accountability application on their phone and there’s lots of free ones, if you need it do it! Some people just need to incorporate it with other habits that they do. So say you have dry skin and you just need to combine it with another thing that you do twice a day. So what I usually tell people is, hey you brush your teeth twice a day, and if you don’t, you need to, so hey you brush your teeth twice a day why don’t before you brush your teeth, you put the lotion on your body and then brush your teeth? You’ve already got a habit established just attach something else to it rather than come up with a whole other habit. Whatever you need to do, spend the five to ten seconds setting it up, because if you set it up and if you have a plan, you’ll get the home run that you’ve always wanted!
