November is National Healthy Skin

Welcome to November, the beginning of National Healthy Skin Month! Your skin is a mirror of your overall health and well-being. Let's take a moment to prioritize YOU and the health of your skin and embark on your skincare journey.

Discover Your Unique Skincare Type

Have you ever taken those online quizzes that claim to identify your skin type? Well, it's time to go beyond those and consult a board-certified dermatologist. Achieving great skin isn't a one-size-fits-all solution; every individual's skin is different. Starting your skincare journey with a visit to a board-certified dermatologist is an essential step towards attaining healthy skin. Dermatologists can offer personalized guidance and recommend a tailored skincare regimen to address breakouts, aging, sensitive dry skin and more.

Let's Take a Proactive Approach

Waiting for the telltale signs of aging is not the way to go. It's crucial to establish a skincare routine as early as possible. Properly nourishing your skin, supplying it with essential nutrients, and using sunscreen daily are not only preventive measures but also effective in reversing existing skin damage. As winter approaches, don't tuck your sunscreen away in the beach bag and forget about it. Daily sunscreen application is indispensable for countering the signs of aging and shielding your skin from harmful UV rays. We recommend our MD #50 protection Balm and Solar Sunscreen.

It's More Than Just Your Face

Remember, your body requires attention too. Especially in Alberta's dry climate, where the air lacks the necessary moisture to keep your skin hydrated. Combat wrinkles, aging signs, and dryness by using a moisturizing cream that reduces epidermal water loss. Our suggestion is the Fifth Element Body Cream.

Trust Dermatologically-Backed Skincare Products

Just as you wouldn't rely on an Uber driver for medical advice, you also wouldn’t rely on a non-professionally backed skincare line, would you? Remember, it's important to ensure that skincare products are endorsed by dermatologists. As we mentioned earlier, visiting a dermatologist to determine your skin type and the ideal skincare products is highly beneficial. Our Art of SKIN's Fifth Element skincare line is personally endorsed by Dr. Lubitz and is recommended to patients for addressing acne, anti-aging, scars, dry skin, eczema, sensitive skin, psoriasis, and more.

Prioritize Relaxation and Well-being

Your skin reflects your health, both physically and mentally. Therefore, it's essential to unwind, stay hydrated, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Reducing the consumption of high-fat foods and alcohol not only addresses acne but also lowers the risk of skin-related issues. Exercise improves collagen production and reduces stress. Moreover, managing stress can significantly enhance skin health, and staying well-hydrated is crucial for vibrant, healthy skin. 

The Key Takeaway

Neglecting proper skincare can adversely affect your skin, overall well-being, and self-confidence. A reliable way to assess the credibility of skincare guidance is to consider the source. If the advice is provided by a board-certified dermatologist, you can trust that it originates from an expert specializing in skin, hair, and nails.
