An Ounce of Prevention – Healthy Skin For the New Year

 It can be all too easy to put off dealing with skin issues.  For medical issues, take an inventory of problems, even seemingly minor ones. Minor issues left unattended can become much bigger problems.

Here’a list to start with:

  • Do you need a mole check?
  • Do you have chronically scaley feet, which can be a type of athlete’s foot (which can spread to the toenails)?
  • Do you have problems with recurrent eczema or psoriasis? There are new treatments for these.
  • Do you have unexplained sores that don’t heal – could be chronic staph or early skin cancers.
  • What about rosacea or acne? If you haven’t been in to see your dermatologist, there are good options for better control.

Make a list and make an appointment!

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
