How to Celebrate National Healthy Skin Month

You may not realize it, but your skin reveals a lot about your overall health. This month is dedicated to sharing what it takes to keep your skin healthy.

The skin has vital job functions like protecting against trauma, regulating body temperature, keeping crucial nutrients in the body, and helping to prevent dangerous substances from entering the body. So, it is only fitting that there is a whole month to keep it healthy. Here are a few ways you can celebrate this month  


Cosmetic dermatology can do more for your skin than boost its appearance. Treatments like chemical peels, dermabrasions, and dermaplaning can improve your skin’s health by stimulating collagen production and removing dead skin cells, helping you better manage acne, diminish wrinkles, reverse sun damage, and more. Healthier skin is better-looking skin, so cosmetic treatments deliver dual benefits. Working with a specialist can also help you better understand your skin and what’s necessary to take proper care of it. Schedule a cosmetic consultation to learn more about achieving the clear skin you’ve always dreamed of!  


National Healthy Skin Month is a great time to take stock of your current routine and make key adjustments. Perhaps you’ve been using a moisturizer that’s not right for your skin type, or maybe you need to increase how often your active ingredients. People with different skin types require different products and routines. Work with one of our providers to develop an optimal, personalized skincare routine.


A considerable portion of National Healthy Skin Month is dedicated to skin cancer awareness, so celebrate accordingly by shielding your skin from the sun’s rays this month and every month. Prolonged, excessive sun exposure can cause your skin to age prematurely and increase your chances of developing skin cancer. 


Approximately 1 out of 5 Americans will develop some form of skin cancer in their lifetime.* Finding skin cancer at an early stage is crucial, and early detection can vastly increase your chances of a cure. The good news is that this condition is highly treatable when caught early on. Therefore, it’s imperative to keep tabs on your skin and remain aware of the signs of skin cancer. In addition to inspecting your skin on your own on a regular basis, it’s a good idea to receive a thorough inspection from a professional about once a year. If it’s been a while since your last examination, schedule your full skin exam or free skin cancer screening today.  


To achieve healthy skin, you must maintain a healthy body. One way to celebrate Healthy Skin Month this year is to find ways to improve your overall well-being. You might commit to getting regular exercise, try out de-stressing techniques like meditation or yoga, develop a better sleep schedule, take vitamins, stay hydrated, and so on. You will feel better making these lifestyle changes, and your skin will look better and become healthier.
