The right skin care can have positive effects on your health, appearance, and beauty. Fortunately, skin care doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Take care of the skin on your face and your body with these three simple steps:
Wash to remove grime, dead skin cells, and excess oils. Use the mildest method and product that gets your skin type clean. Be careful of scrubs and abrasive cleansers that can damage your skin and leave marks.
Moisturizer seals in hydration to prevent dry skin. Products are available for every skin type and condition.
Exposure to the environmental agents, particularly UV rays from the sun, damages your skin. Even moderate amounts of sun exposure can cause premature wrinkles, dryness, freckles, and discoloration. Extended or severe exposure can lead to skin cancer. Sunscreens and blocks are available for all skin types, facial and body. Many moisturizers now include SPF.
Common Skin Conditions
Despite the best skin care program, common skin conditions can occur.
- Acne breakouts can often be related to your skin care regimen and the products you use. Ensuring you have the right products for your skin type will help.
- Rosacea sufferers and patients with sensitive skin might complain of patches of course, scaly skin; bumps and pimples; redness and broken blood vessels. Your dermatologist will talk with you about mild skin care products, green-tinted cosmetics, and possibly oral medications or laser therapy to manage your rosacea.
- Eczema is characterized by extremely itchy patches of skin, and can be dry and scaly. Your dermatologist can tell you about possible triggers and various management techniques.
