November reminds us to take care of our skin

Face it. This long, hot summer and intense sun did a number on your skin. As Healthy Skin Awareness Month, November is the perfect time to take steps to refresh and renew your skin care regimen.

Observed in November, Healthy Skin Awareness Month is a public health and awareness campaign that aims to raise awareness about the importance of having healthy skin. Skin is our body’s largest organ, and this month is a good time to help learn how common skin problems can be prevented.

Embrace sunscreen. We often think to only use sunscreen during the summer, but we can actually use sunscreen every day to help maintain the skin’s youthful appearance. One way skin cancer can be prevented is also through the proper use of sunscreen. Apply SPF 30 or above in the morning before your make up.

Wash your face. Be sure to wash your face when waking, before bed and after sweating. Washing when you wake up removes the dirt and bacteria that settle on your face while sleeping. Before bed, you want to remove makeup and grime, such as smog, smoke or dirt, which may have landed on your skin.

Check for skin cancer. Take time regularly to check your skin for signs of cancer. Self-exams can help you find skin cancer early when it’s highly treatable. If you notice a spot that differs from the others, or one that changes, itches or bleeds, make an appointment to see a physician immediately.

Avoid smoking. Don’t take up smoking or make a plan now to quit smoking. Smoking is shown to speed up the aging of your skin and contributes to growing fine lines around your mouth.
