November is National Healthy Skin Month
November is here, marking the start of National Healthy Skin Month! Your skin can reveal a great deal about your overall well-being. So, let’s take a moment to assess and ensure your skin’s well-being. Below, you’ll find valuable tips to maintain your skin’s health as we approach the upcoming winter season.
Embrace Skin Health Awareness!
Did you realize skin cancer is the most prevalent cancer in the United States and Canada? Now is the ideal moment to inspect any spots or blemishes that may have developed during the summer months. Be thorough in your examination and keep an eye out for any new moles. Skin issues affect individuals of all backgrounds, so even those with darker complexions are not immune to skin cancer. If you encounter anything that makes you uneasy, schedule an appointment with your dermatologist. Dr. Lubitz, our board-certified dermatologist, possesses a particular expertise in skin cancer detection and treatment.
Let's Take a Proactive Approach
Don’t wait for the signs of aging. Establishing a skincare regimen should start as early as possible. Adequately hydrating your skin, providing essential nutrients, and applying sunscreen daily can not only prevent further damage but also help reverse existing damage. We understand that winter is approaching, but that doesn’t mean you should stow away your sunscreen and forget about it. Daily sunscreen use is essential for combating the signs of aging and shielding your skin from harmful UV rays. We recommend our MD #50 protection Balm and Solar Sunscreen.
Avoid At-Home Skincare Treatments
We’ve all been intrigued by at-home laser hair removal and micro-needling, among other treatments. However, board-certified dermatologists strongly discourage these treatments due to the potential for long-lasting scars and skin damage. It’s crucial to book in with a board-certified dermatologist or medical spa for professional treatments. The results will be better, long-lasting and most of all, safer.
Prioritize Relaxation and Wellness
Your skin mirrors your health, both physically and mentally. Therefore, it’s essential to unwind, stay hydrated, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Reducing the consumption of high-fat foods and alcohol not only addresses acne but also lowers the risk of skin-related issues. Exercise improves collagen production and reduces stress. Moreover, managing stress can significantly enhance skin health, and staying well-hydrated is crucial for vibrant, healthy skin.
Consult a Board-Certified Dermatologist
Have you ever consulted a board-certified dermatologist? Great skin is not a one-size-fits-all solution; everyone’s skin is unique. Starting your skincare journey with a visit to a board-certified dermatologist who can provide personalized guidance is the first step toward achieving youthful, healthy skin.
