Our skin is a window into the rest of our body – if we are taking good care of our skin, then we can look and feel our best!
The skin is the largest organ of our body so we should treat it with respect and protect it!
Many factors can affect our skin – some from the environment, like the sun, and others from within, such as prescribed medications.
A few simple concepts applied to daily routines are critical to protecting our skin from the harmful ultraviolet rays which can result in skin cancer and ageing. There are other measures we can take to help combat the effects that medical treatments, such as, chemotherapy or radiation, can have on our skin.
To help with changes like dryness, discoloration, fine lines or skin cancer, prevention is the key.
We cannot control our genetics or destiny, but we can engage in behaviors to help ourselves feel and look great!
