In the United States, November is celebrated as National Healthy Skin Month. It serves as a time to promote healthy skincare habits to protect children and adults from various diseases, including acne, psoriasis, and dry skin. Data shows that one of every three Americans will develop some form of skin cancer in their lifetime. Knowing the best times to go outdoors and protecting your skin is critical to reducing this high statistic. Additionally, there are many at-home precautions you can take to prevent future damage. Understanding specific procedures to maintain healthy skin will help you better care for your skin during National Healthy Skin Month.

Although it is popular to be tan, the ultraviolet radiation that comes with tanning can cause more damage than good. Many states have banned minors from using these beds; however, avoiding them altogether is the safest bet for healthier skin. Instead, choose self tanner or a spray tan.

Exercise offers many different health benefits but can also improve the tone and texture of your skin. If exercising outside, wearing sunscreen is very importan.
What we eat impacts directly how our body functions and looks. Ensuring that you are eating nutritious foods will help provide the energy your body needs while preventing other health problems such as arthritis.
This includes showering at night, using salicylic acid to cleanse pores, and sunscreen every day.
This includes treatments to create a toned and slimmer body shape. Some options include liposuction to reduce stubborn fat or Sculptra to define areas like the buttocks.
This includes facial procedures that minimize wrinkles and fine lines to smooth out the skin’s appearance. Non-surgical procedures like Botox injections can smooth wrinkles near the eyes or forehead. A facelift or brow lift can also be good options for more pronounced sagging and aging signs.
This includes laser resurfacing treatments that remove the top layer of the skin to uncover smoother skin underneath.
This includes softening the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines to smooth out the skin’s appearance. Dermal fillers like Juvederm can be used to soften wrinkles and restore lost volume.

I’m so happy with the results from the Botox shots that Dr. Wallach performed on me. He spent a lot of time talking about the different fillers that would make my face look the most natural and youthful.
