New Year Resolutions for Your Skin

With a New Year comes the opportunity to be proactive in your skincare.  Here are five resolutions to benefit your skin:

  1. Use Sunscreen – the sun causes more problems for your skin than any other environmental factor – wrinkles, freckles, other unsightly blemishes AND skin cancers.  Use a moisturizer with sunscreen every morning and make sure to put on a full sunscreen prior to prolonged sun exposure.
  2. Moisturize – Dry skin predisposes to a myriad of problems.  Use a good moisturizing cream once to twice a day, especially after showering.
  3. Perform Skin Self-Examinations Monthly – Monitor your skin for changes in moles or new lesions, especially ones that bleed spontaneously or hurt.
  4. Gently Cleanse Your Skin – Harsh cleansers and soaps can dry out the skin and cause eczema and other skin problems. Use mild/moisturizing soaps and cleansers in your daily skin care.
  5. Don’t Procrastinate – If you notice a problem or suspicious lesion on your skin, seek care sooner rather than later to avoid complications or future problems.
