Skin Care Secrets: Healthy Skin Month

November 8, 2021

Did you know the largest organ in the body is the skin? We must take good care of our skin to avoid conditions like skin cancer. The National Healthy Skin Month is marked every November, and its purpose is to raise awareness of how to maintain healthy skin. Skin care secrets should be common knowledge, so we’ll share valuable tips to help you keep healthy skin from head to toe.

Stop Harmful Habits Like Smoking

Because smoking is harmful to your health, and it ages your skin quickly. It also prevents your wounds from healing faster and exacerbates some skin diseases like psoriasis.

Conduct Skin Self-Exams

Be sure to note any changes in your skin. Spots that look different, shift positions, or bleeding can be signs of a serious problem. Visit a medical dermatologist immediately to rule out the possibility of skin cancer.

Maintain a Healthy Skin Care Routine

First, you should determine your skin type, whether oily, normal, dry, or combination. Only use products that are formulated specifically for your skin’s needs. Shower/ bathe daily and moisturize well for healthy skin.

Use Sunscreen Daily

Some say using sunscreen is akin to dipping into the fountain of youth. Besides helping to prevent skin cancer, it slows down skin aging. A good sunscreen should have broad-spectrum protection of SPF 30 and above. It should be a mandatory daily routine before going outdoors.

Wash Your Face Frequently

Always wash your face when you wake up, before bed, and even when you sweat. It will help remove dirt and bacteria that may settle on the skin pores of your face. Before bed, always cleanse your face to remove makeup, dirt, and grime. Subsequently, this will significantly reduce acne flare-ups, helping you avoid those expensive acne treatments.
