 How to Celebrate Healthy Skin This National Healthy Skin Month

Whether you love your skin the way it is, want to try a new acne treatment, treat or prevent aging, or want a new way to improve your skin’s texture, now is the perfect time to implement new skincare services and celebrate healthy skin. This Healthy Skin Month, celebrate your skin by giving it a little extra attention. Here are some tips and services from the pros.

Always Wear Sunscreen

No matter what time of year, it’s imperative to wear ample amounts of sunscreen. Even on cloudy days, the sun can penetrate through the clouds and burn your skin. Sunburns can lead to premature aging, dry skin, and skin cancer. Speaking to a dermatologist will allow you to decide which products are best for your skin type. It’s essential to choose a sunscreen that doubles as a moisturizer with an SPF 30 or higher and to re-apply every two hours to ensure optimal coverage.

If you have a special skin condition, like psoriasis, there are plenty of products that will protect your skin from the sun without causing a flare-up. Especially with pre-existing skin conditions, it’s always critical to protect your skin from the sun’s rays.

Enjoy Safe Effective Skin Treatments

Prevention is critical when it comes to skin issues. One of the best ways to prevent daily pollutants from affecting your skin is removing dead skin regularly to reveal new fresh skin. A chemical peel is a safe and effective way to allow your skin to renew itself. Chemical peels help fade brown spots, uneven skin tone, and red discoloration from past breakouts and sun damage.

Dermaplaning is another effective treatment for the face. It removes peach fuzz, signs of aging, scarring from past acne or other skin issues, and gives the face an overall better complexion. This is accomplished by taking a sterile surgical dermaplaning blade along the skin.

Reduce and Prevent Signs of Aging

A Botox treatment from a board-certified dermatologist is another way to prevent aging. It’s essential to go to a doctor for these treatments as the wrong treatment or too much Botox can give you unfavorable results. However, after a consultation, you and your doctor will decide what is best for your skin and ensure you get the results you desire.

Over time, your facial expressions cause fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is injected into the face and relaxes the muscles so that expressions can't be as severe, therefore unable to cause such deep lines and wrinkles.

Celebrating Healthy Skin Month can also be done when you turn back the hands of time. Dermal fillers can help bring your skin back to life. These natural fillers are injected into lines, folds, and wrinkles with substances your body already produces, such as collagen. Again, it’s imperative you speak to your dermatologist about this and that they are doing the injection, so you don’t overdo fillers or have a bad reaction.
