Your skin is the first line of defense against the outside world, including irritants and allergens. “Changes in the skin can reveal a lot about your health,” says Dr. Monique S. Cohn, of Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Twinsburg Ohio. More than simply playing the part as a protective organ, your skin functions as immune protection.
Walking down the skin-care aisle at any store can make the task seem overwhelming, but caring for your skin does not need to be complex. A well-thought-out skin care routine can be simple. Dr. Cohn recommends; 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 gel based 15 to 30 SPF sunscreen.
