The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) first implemented November as healthy skin month in order to raise awareness about the importance of keeping skin fresh, hydrated and healthy all year round. There are many things people can do during National Skin Health Month, and all year long, to prevent skin damage, reduce signs of aging and protect one of the most vital organs of the body:
National Healthy Skin Month is a public health and awareness campaign that aims to raise awareness on the importance of having healthy skin. It is also for educating the public about the common skin problems that affect people and how they can be prevented. It also informs the public about how skin cancer can be prevented through simple tips Like
Regular use of sunscreen: sunscreen needs to be applied year-round, not just during the summer months. While the sun’s rays are more powerful in summer, they can still be damaging even in the cloudy, cool conditions of winter. A heavy sunscreen may not be necessary, so apply a moisturizer with SPF.
Eat a healthy diet: What we put in our mouths is just as influential to our skin’s health as what we apply externally. Eating a diet that’s rich in Omega 3s, whole grains and B Vitamins is essential to maintaining skin’s youthful glow. Be sure to incorporate plenty of fruits, vegetables and lean proteins in your diet. Since skin is made of protein, the more we consume, the better
Don’t forget your lips and around the eyes: Your lips and eyes need just as much protection as the rest of your skin, especially since they can get a lot of exposure to the sun. Carry lip balm and eye cream with SPF with you and apply it generously particularly in the dry winter months when lips can become very chapped and soar.
Meditation: Stress is a huge contributor to skin problems like acne and wrinkles. Making time to relax during your hectic days can greatly improve the condition of your skin. 10-15 in day make the huge difference in you aver all appearance 🙂
Moisturize: Your skin needs to stay hydrated to stay healthy. Apply moisturizer to your whole body every morning and at night before going to bed. Keep moisturizer near you during the day so you can continue to moisturize your hands. Along with these and many other helpful tips, you can keep your skin looking great all through the month of November and the rest of the year.
Plenty of water: Don’t forget about to drink at last 8 – 10 glasses of water every day. Water flushed out toxins from the body keep the skin breathable and firm.
Choosing the type of facial you want depends on what you’re looking for and what you can afford. Some facial treatments are designed to deep-clean the skin, while others offer moisturizing benefits, and still others help to relieve stress, which often causes acne.
