November is National Healthy Skin Care Month. So, it is important to learn the best way to keep your skin healthy all year long.
National Skin Care Month is November
Because the weather is starting to change in most of the country, November is officially known as National Skin Healthy Skin Month. With a chill in the air, now is the time to learn the best methods for keeping your skin healthy. In the first place, the American Academy of Dermatology implemented this month to teach individuals the importance of keeping your skin healthy and hydrated all year long.
In the same way, it is important to find a good dermatologist. Since there are many free skin care, cancer screening tests available, use this time to schedule an appointment.
Tips to Keep you Skin Care Healthy
Of course, we all want our skin to look good. But, it is important to keep our skin healthy. First, wash your face every day. After any physical activity, use a gentle cleanser and warm water. It is important to know whether you have normal, oily or dry skin. Of course, it is important to use the right type of products for your skin type.
If you live in a warmer climate, make sure you protect your skin. Visit our Healthy Summer Skin Care Recommendations post for tips on taking care of our skin. First and foremost, it is important to always apply an SPF 30 or more. When you apply your sunscreen, it is important to keep it nearby. Make sure you reapply your sunscreen every few hours throughout the day.
Another tip to keep your skin looking fresh is to apply moisturizer. In my opinion, it is best to apply your moisturizer right after you get out of the shower or get out of the ocean. Consequently, petroleum jelly is another great item to have on hand. This is also used to treat any minor skin issues and also helps keep your nails healthy.
Also, what you put into your month has an impact on your skin. Make sure you try and maintain a healthy diet that is rich in Omega-3, Vitamin B and whole grains.
If you notice anything unusual on your skin or body; it is important to see a board certified dermatologist. Meanwhile, if you see any unusual spot, as well as any changes in your skin such as itching or bleeding, it is important you see a Doctor right away. To summarize, skin cancer is on the rise. Therefore, it is important to get a regular skin care check up appointment.
Above all, incorporate the tips above into your skin regime.
