Your skin is your body’s largest organ and an immediate reflection of your health. So it’s important to take good care of it! Since it’s National Healthy Skin Month, what better time than now to think about how to keep skin looking great. Here are four easy ways to get your skin in tiptop shape brought to you in part by the American Academy of Dermatology and us.

1. Wear Sunscreen Everyday

A leading cause of skin damage and premature skin aging is the sun. And a simple way to prevent this is by wearing sunscreen everyday – I’m talking 365 days a year. Sunblock really is the best weapon to fight sun damage and skin aging.

Also don’t forget to practice other sun protection measures including covering up, wearing sunglasses, seeking shade, staying out of the sun during peak hours and avoiding tanning beds.

2. Wash Your Face Daily

Dirt builds-up so make sure you wash your face at least once a day. Use a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water.

Make sure your hands are clean before washing; you don’t want to add more dirt to your skin.

But don’t overdo it as over-washing can lead to irritation and breakouts.

3. Moisturize Daily

Apply a moisturizer while you skin is still damp to lock in moisture and get the best results.

In the morning, to protect your skin, use a moisturizer and an SPF product or find a 2-in-1 moisturizer with SPF.

Definitely moisturize before bedtime to seal in moisture overnight and replenish the skin.

4. Perform Regular Skin Check-Ups

Examine your skin head-to-toe every month – look for new or unusual spots as well as anything changing, itching or bleeding.

As the Skin Cancer Foundation says – if you can spot it, you can stop it.

Additionally, see your physician every year for a professional skin exam.
