Have you looked over yourself lately? As in taking a nice shower and doing your 4-step (or however many steps you have) skincare routine and once you’re done, you take a look at your body and see what’s going on. What about giving yourself a once-over after a long day of work? However you decide to check on yourself, can you remember the last time you did so? Can you remember if you found anything out of the ordinary? Maybe a bruise or a scratch? Those are pretty common mishaps that can appear on the skin.
