Fall In Love With Your Skin

This fall, we urge you to FALL in love with your skin! Fall is a great time to take care of your skin after a summer of hot temperatures and lots of sun exposure. We have compiled a list of skin care tips that you can use this fall to get your skin looking healthy and rejuvenated!

Wear sunscreen daily

Even during the fall and winter months, applying sun sunscreen daily is one of the best things you can do for maintaining healthy skin. When applied correctly, sunscreen protects your skin against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. These are the same rays that cause sunburn, skin cancer, and premature skin aging. 

Know your skin type

Choosing skin care products formulated for your skin type is another way to keep your skin healthy. Understanding your skin type will help you learn how to take care of your skin and select skin care products that are right for you. Here’s how to identify and understand your skin type:

  • Sensitive skin: May sting or burn after product use
  • Normal skin: Clear and not sensitive
  • Dry skin: Flaky, itchy, or rough
  • Combination skin: Dry in some areas and oily in others
  • Oily: Shiny and greasy

Simplify your skincare routine

Less is more when it comes to skincare and achieving healthy skin. Using too many products, especially multiple anti-aging products, can irritate your skin. Instead, focus on the basics, such as a gentle cleanser, sunscreen, and moisturizer. Establish morning and nighttime skincare routines that work well for your skin, and stick with them.

Come in for a skin check

Keeping your skin cancer-free is essential for your health. Unfortunately, skin cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S., affecting one in five Americans in their lifetime. Further, nearly 20 Americans die from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every day. However, when detected early, skin cancer—including melanoma—is highly treatable. In fact, the five-year survival rate for people whose melanoma is detected and treated before it spreads to the lymph nodes is 98%. 

It is important to check your skin regularly for new spots, spots that are different from other spots on your body, or moles that itch, bleed, or change color, as these are often early warning signs of skin cancer. If you notice any suspicious spots, make an appointment to see a SkinMD provider.

Book An Appointment 

If you need help getting your skin back on track this fall, book an appointment with a SkinMD provider near you. With offices in Orland Park, Evergreen Park, Skokie, and Willowbrook, you are never too far from Chicagoland’s best dermatology care. Medical appointments can be made online, and cosmetic appointments can be made over the phone.
