Taking Care of Your Skin

Your skin reflects your health. It's your body's canvas and one of its most valuable assets. It's also the only skin you'll ever get, so your daily habits mean everything.

Are You Ready to Take Charge?

  • Start simple. Before spending a lot on skin care products, evaluate your current skin care routine. Do you properly cleanse your skin and wear sunscreen every day? Even though you won't see immediate results, those little steps make a big difference over time.
  • Start early. If you're a teenager or if you have a teenager at home, start now to develop healthy habits. If you're older, you can still nourish, pamper, and protect your skin for the future.
  • Seek professional help for skin problems. Don't expect perfection from your skin, but don't hesitate to get some professional help from a dermatologist to help your skin be its best.
  • Wear sunscreen daily. In every season, cloudy or sunny, sunscreen is a must. Make it a daily habit to protect your skin. Also do this:
    • Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
    • Wear wide-brimmed hats, long sleeved shirts, and pants.
    • Use a generous amount of sunscreen and reapply it every two hours, and more often if swimming or sweating.
    • Use sunscreens that have a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or more and that have UVA and UVB protection.
    • Don't use tanning beds. There is no such thing as a "safe tan."
