Cheers to National Healthy Skin Month
Being the largest organ of the body, it's a very protective friend—shielding us from harmful rays and filtering free radicals. The skin is a friend who's honest about what's happening inside our guts, minds, and hearts. We should be loving and protecting our skin every day. That's why November is dedicated to healthy skin by shining awareness on its importance.
Good skin habits are essential to keeping skin at its optimum health, at any age. The RxESCUESKIN family encourages a regular, yet, simple skin routine to give the skin what it deserves. We'd love to give you a few tips or reminders during this year's healthy skin celebration.
Always Use Sunscreen
Aside from cleansing, sunscreen with 30 SPF+ is the most important weapon against skin damage. Research shows that using sunscreen every day ages skin 24-30% slower. Almost 10,000 Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer daily. According to SkinCancer.org:
- 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70.
- More than 2 people die of skin cancer in the U.S. every hour.
- Having 5 or more sunburns doubles your risk for melanoma.
- When detected early, the 5-year survival rate for melanoma is 99 percent.
By visiting a board-certified dermatologist, a skin condition can be managed better with all the new advancements at hand. For example, in the colder months, eczema can be triggered. Find out how an episode can be prevented or minimized through a dermatologist.
Diet and Stress
How we treat our bodies is key. A unique study of several sets of identical twins showed the effects of either stress, sun, or smoke on one who did and the other who refrained. Diet and stress are linked both psychologically and physically. Stress can trigger the way one eats. One example is sugar craving. Sugar impacts our collagen production while throwing our hormones off balance. This can create acne, oily skin, trigger a skin condition or, even, sugar sag. Managing stress can be harder on some days, but by exercising, therapy, or having other healthy alternatives on hand can greatly help.
Water consumption is an essential food for healthy skin. We can hydrate through raw vegetables and fruits, smoothies, and oatmeal. Also, we can maintain hydration by avoiding alcohol, sugary drinks, and sparkling water which are all acidic and deplete moisture.
Our bodies heal through sleep. It's the only way. Without it, the body begins suffering. Of course, we go through phases where we can't help it, such as having a newborn. Outside of unavoidable situations, it's crucial to prioritize sleep for the best health and skin.
Good habits are vital to healthy skin. Try RzESCUESKIN serum. We're sure you'll love it when you see how your skin feels and looks.
