There’s a lot more to your skin than you might think and taking care of it is important for more than just your appearance. In addition to being your largest organ, your skin plays a vital role in detecting hot and cold, regulating your body temperature and protecting your muscles, bones and internal organs from outside infection and disease.

This is why it is so important to have a well-thought-out skin care routine. It is absolutely worth the time and energy to take care of your skin on a daily basis.  Most people can do this very simply without spending a lot on retail products.

Dr. Cohn tells her patients; 1. Gently cleanse your skin morning and night, 2. Moisturize in the morning with an antioxidant, 3. Exfoliate in the evening with a vitamin A derivative or alpha hydroxyl acid product and, 4. Protect yourself in the sun with a 15 to 30 SPF sunscreen.
