Skin health is on my mind these days because May is Skin Cancer Awareness month. You know what else? Marin County recently won a spot in the top-25 list of healthiest communities in America, according to an annual survey by US News & World Report! Well done, Marin County! Your hard work taking care of yourself and your community is paying off!
But I feel compelled to ask, as a skin care expert, how well do you care for your skin’s health? In honor of Skin Cancer Awareness month, here are a few key pointers for keeping your dermis in tip-top shape:
You are diligent about going to the gym and eating a balanced diet, but do you apply SPF every morning of the year? If not, it’s time to reevaluate your priorities! Rain or shine, SPF should be the single-most important ingredient in your beauty arsenal. Applying an SPF 30 daily will not only protect your skin from further sun damage, but is also clinically proven to enhance the look and feel of your skin by improving lines and other signs of damage.
ANNUAL SKIN CANCER SCREENING
If you don’t already have one, it’s time to pick a dermatologist who can perform your annual skin cancer screening. Dermatologists can also prescribe key beauty treatments, such as potent retinoids, for reducing wrinkles and acne, which are the perfect complement to our advanced skin rejuvenation treatments!
REVERSE AND RENEW
For a brighter, younger-looking complexion, you need to remove sun damaged skin every now and then with a professional skin treatment such as Halo™, BBL™ photofacials, or microneedling. Our leading selection of proven treatments also stimulate new collagen and elastin growth for dramatic overall improvements to the look and feel of your skin.
