November is National Healthy Skin Month. Keeping the skin healthy and looking young is important. Don’t wait for the occurrence of skin problems before you start taking care of your skin. Be proactive by protecting the skin to prevent problems such as rough skin, wrinkles, liver spots, and skin cancers.
It is estimated that one in five Americans will experience skin cancer in their lifetime. Skin cancers are typically classified as basal carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Skin cancers can be avoided by taking care of the skin. The best protection against skin cancer is to avoid getting sunburned by covering up or wearing sunscreen.
Protect Against Skin Damage
Various skin damage is caused by too much exposure to the sun. Avoid skin damage by wearing protective clothing such as hats, long sleeve shirts, and pants when going out. If layers is too hot or uncomfortable, wear a high SPF sunscreen. Apply the sunscreen approximately 20 minutes before going out and reapply every two hours.
Washing and Moisturizing
While it is important to regularly clean your skin, did you know that taking a shower or bath for more than fifteen minutes washes away the oils off your skin. Using strong soap also removes oil from the skin, making the skin dry, brittle, and vulnerable to damages. Some perfumes and dyes could damage the skin due to allergic reactions.
Keeping your skin moisturized will keep your skin healthy. Natural moisturizers seal the skin, preventing the escape of water. A fully hydrated skin is elastic, soft, and young looking.
