November is National Healthy Skin Month

Nov 1, 2017 | Skin Care, SkinMedica

This November is National Healthy Skin Month! Show your skin the attention it needs by following these skin care tips for the colder months up ahead. In addition to eating healthy foods, following these tips can keep your skin healthy and radiant all winter long.

Time to Transition Your Skin Care Routine

Don’t forget about your sunscreen—Even though the temperature is starting to drop, the sun is still intense, especially in Arizona! Don’t forget to put on sunscreen every morning. Although the UV rays are slightly less harsh during the winter, up to 80% of the UV rays can still penetrate your skin during the colder months, so sunscreen is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer.
Moisturize—The cooler temperatures often bring low humidity, especially as indoor heaters start running, so moisturizing your skin is a crucial part of any winter skin care routine. We recommend SkinMedica’s Ultimate Sheer Moisturizer as a great way to make sure your skin is hydrated every morning or every evening.
Take lukewarm showers and baths—If your skin has become dry, taking lukewarm showers can help your skin recover and become more hydrated. You should try not to take hot showers very often, as your skin can flake off and dry out.
Exfoliate—Exfoliation is one of the best things you can include in any skin care routine, as it restores your skin and makes it healthier and brighter. By removing layers of dead skin cells, exfoliation can make your skin look younger and can be customized to fit your needs best. Whether you use an exfoliating product like a foaming face wash, or whether you come in for a microdermabrasion facial at North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic, your skin will thank you for taking good care of it.
