The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) designates each November as National Healthy Skin Month to bring awareness to how important it is to take care of the largest organ on your body, your skin! Healthy skin is something that everyone should strive for. Your skin is the organ that comes into contact with the rest of the world. Since your skin plays such an important role in protecting your body, you should keep it as healthy as possible. This will help you keep from getting sick or having damage to your bones, muscles, and internal organs. Here are some tips for healthier skin: 1. Apply sunscreen every day before you go outdoors. Sunscreen is the closest thing we have to a fountain of youth. It really can slow down skin aging. It can also help prevent skin cancer. Look for a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection, SPF 30 (or higher), and water resistance.2. Don't smoke. Smoking speeds up how quickly your skin ages. If you smoke, your wounds will also take longer to heal. 3. Use skin care products that match your skin's needs. What's your skin type — oily, dry, normal, combination, or sensitive? Do you have a skin condition?4. 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.5. Stress less. Finding healthy ways to manage stress can help your skin, too.6. See a board-certified dermatologist if you dislike something about your skin. #BlackHealthEquity #longbeach #longbeachca#longbeachcalifornia #bhec #HealthySkinMonth #November ... See MoreSee Less
