November – The National Healthy Skin Month

In November 1997, the AAD established the first National Healthy Skin Month®. Since that time, the AAD and dermatologists attend it annually, making it an important event in which skin concerns are discussed.

Down below we are going to share some tips that you should adopt from November on according to AAD.

November – The National Healthy Skin Month

Tips to adopt this November according to the American Academy of Dermatology:

Reduce wrinkles: When it comes to wrinkles, sun damage and age are big culprits, but sleeping on your side or stomach may contribute to ‘sleep lines’ on your face and chest. If you can, sleep on your back. It is a simple step that can reduce or prevent the formation of these lines.

Remove makeup while hydrating your eyelids: Petroleum jelly is an effective way to remove your eye makeup and rehydrate eyelid skin. To remove makeup, apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly and gently wipe it off with a tissue or cloth. Then gently spread any remaining jelly onto your eyelids, which will rehydrate your skin overnight.

Apply sunscreen all year long:
