November is National Healthy Skin Month!

November is here and with its arrival comes beautiful fall foliage and holiday anticipation! Need another reason to celebrate? The American Academy of Dermatology has deemed November National Healthy Skin Month! During National Health Skin Month, everyone is encouraged to learn about the functions of the skin, importance of having healthy skin, and how to keep it working and looking the best it can.

Did you know that your skin is your body’s largest organ? Our skin has a total area of about 20 square feet! [1] Keeping your skin vibrant and healthy is a commitment, but it’s worth it! So, what steps should you take to achieve and maintain healthy skin?

1. Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! Did we say sunscreen? Sunscreen is the make or break when it comes to healthy skin! Sunscreen not only protects you from damaging ultraviolet rays that can affect the appearance of skin, sunscreen also protects you from skin cancer. Skin cancer doesn’t discriminate. Anyone can get it regardless of age, race or gender so apply and apply often!

2. Treat yourself!  Getting regular treatments like facials and peels can help you to achieve that healthy glow year-round! Clogged pores can cause the products you apply at home to be less effective. Enter: facials! Professional peels can also be stronger and delivery better results than products alone. It’s also important to note that as the seasons change, your skin changes. Your aesthetician can assess the changes in your skin and recommend the best treatment plan and at-home regimen for you.

3. Maintenance. You wouldn’t visit the dentist and not brush your teeth at home, so why would you visit your aesthetician and not continue using products at home?! Home care is key to maintaining the results of your in-office treatments. This month, you can even receive 20% off of products when purchased during your facial visit!

Achieving beautiful, healthy skin is possible and we’re here to help you along your skincare journey. CLICK HERE to make an appointment or give us a call at 210-255-8447 to learn more!
