It is National Healthy Skin Month!

It’s time to pay attention to your skin. National Healthy Skin Month each November is sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology. You may not realize it, but your skin reveals a lot about your overall health. This month makes you aware of what it takes to keep your skin healthy as well as understanding how to treat and prevent common skin problems. National Healthy Skin Month stresses how to correctly use sunscreen and offers helpful tips on how to check your skin periodically to prevent skin cancer.

We hear plenty about keeping our skin protected from the summer sun. But the healthy skin message gets much less obvious as fall and winter roll around. But healthy skin is a year-round project! So if you’ve been neglecting your skin now that you’re covering most of it up … it’s the time to rethink your approach.

Get in the spirit of National Healthy Skin Month and banish dry, rough, cracked skin.

Start with these tips:

  • Sunscreen is for winter, too.
  • Moisturizer is your friend
  • Remember your lips
  • What you eat matters
  • Smoking is not your friend
  • Wash your face/shower with warm (not hot) water and a mild cleanser.

Disclaimer: Always consult your physician before beginning or changing any healthcare routine.
