As we move into another year, we often make resolutions about getting healthier. This year, don’t forget about your skin! Try incorporating these tips into your skincare routine this year.
Always Apply Your SPF
Water-resistant SPF should be part of your everyday skincare routine – not just something you apply during the summer! We have several everyday sunscreen options available at the front desk.
Stay Away From Tanning
Whether you like to soak up the rays by the pool, or visit a tanning bed, UV-rays cause irreversible damage to your skin. Instead, reach for self-tanning products!
Apply Moisturizer Immediately After Bathing
By applying moisturizer while your skin is still damp, you lock moisture into skin and help prevent dryness. Dry, itchy skin is one of the most common causes of skin discomfort, especially in the early winter months of the year.
Preform Regular Skin Self-Exams
Regularly checking your skin for changes can help detect skin cancer early. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime. However, with early detection most skin cancer is highly treatable.
Make an Appointment with Your Dermatologist to Treat Any Skin Problems
If you are experiencing acne, psoriasis, hair loss, or any other skin, hair, or nail problem, you should make an appointment with your dermatologist to rule out any underlying problems or conditions. They can help create a customized plan that treats your symptoms and gets you on the road to better, healthier skin this year!
