With the new year just around the corner many of us will be coming up with our New Years Eve resolutions. For many it will involve getting rid of those few extra pounds from the holidays, for others it may be spending more time with the family or getting that promotion at work. But what about a resolution to take better care of your skin?
Our skin, especially our face, is the first thing someone notices about us, but it often is something that we don’t always take good care of. Many people think that in order to take care of our skin we have to invest money in expensive creams and lotions. However, good skin health can be simple.
Wearing a daily sunscreen is essential to protect our skin from the damaging UV rays that do not only age and wrinkle or skin, but cause skin cancers as well. Especially living in Florida where the sun is unavoidable. When out in the sun for an extended period of time it is important to reapply your sunscreen every two to three hours to give us the protection that is needed. Dr. Badia and her staff have done extensive research on different sunscreen products available on the market and can give you recommendations on a sunscreen based on your skin needs.
Another great way to take care of your skin is to see your dermatologist yearly. Dermatologists can treat precancerous lesions and can monitor or biopsy any suspicious moles or growths which will help reduce your risk of getting skin cancer.
We hope everyone has a safe and happy new year!
See you next year.
