Taking care of your body with diet and exercise is as important as taking care of your skin. Skin care is important to maintain a natural, healthy glow. At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to helping individuals achieve the results they desire and offer a variety of products, skin care tips, and treatments to residents near Herndon, Virginia.
Common skin care tips
Your skin is your largest organ. It is important to protect and care for it. You do not have to follow a long drawn out regimen. Common ways to care for your skin include the following tips:
- Wear sunscreen.
- Use moisturizer.
- Perform routine skin checks.
- Visit a dermatologist regularly and with any skin concerns.
You do not have to live in the tropics to need sunscreen. Sun exposure increases the risks of skin cancer as well as dull, damaged skin. Sunscreen is important year round as it protects the skin against the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays.
Whether you suffer from eczema and dry skin or you have oily skin, moisturizer is important. This product keeps the skin glowing and healthy. It is important to select the appropriate moisturizer for your skin type so you do not further dry out the skin or cause your body to produce more oil. We will help you choose an appropriate product.
Pay attention to your skin
Performing routine skin checks helps you catch changes in your skin early. Watch for mole changes such as asymmetry, border, color, and diameter. If you do notice changes in your skin or simply have skin concerns, visit a dermatologist. A dermatologist is trained and experienced at treating skin conditions. Many common problems can be treated easily with the appropriate medication or product.
