Healthy Skin Care Regimen
Women of all ages need to take care of their skin because it is the largest external organ of the body. It is quick to display signs of aging and ill health. A good skin care regimen can prevent various skin problems.
In this video, NuFemme’s medical provider, Jennifer Hipp, gives us 5 tips for great skin care.
A good skin care regimen involves the use of the right sunscreen, especially in the summer. Prolonged ultraviolet exposure can cause extensive damage to the skin, which can lead to visible deformities like wrinkles, dryness and age spots.
The second most important aspect of a good skin care regimen is the regular use of a nourishing moisturizer. The benefits of a moisturizer extend beyond summer, it provides hydration and nutrients all year round.
Removing dead skin cells is another important part of a good skin care regimen. Dead skin cells clog the pores, which prevents nutrients from penetrating the skin, delaying the natural skin regeneration process. Learn more about our microneedling procedure.
Water and Hydration
Staying hydrated is the most important part of an effective skin care regimen. This includes drinking water and taking regular showers. Water aids digestion, absorption and circulation.
Skin Cancer Screening
A good skin care regimen should include regular skin cancer screenings. We should get our skin checked for irregularities once every six (6) months. Skin cancer is the 7th most common form of cancer in women under forty (40).
