Check Your Skin Regularly, Please!

The importance of checking your skin! Skin cancer is on the rise!

It is projected that there will be nearly 4 million new cases of non-melanoma skin cancer diagnosed this year in the U.S., which is on the rise. Additionally the incidence of melanoma in situ continues to increase with an estimated 56,000 to be newly diagnosed in 2012.




What's The Best Treatment For Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition usually involving inflammation of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, and even eyelids. It can also persist on the neck and chest/decollete as well. It generally appears as redness, prominent spider-like veins or broken capillaries, swelling, or even eruptions similar to acne. It is exacerbated by sun, hot foods, exercise, stress, changes in temperatue, and alcohol. There is no "cure" for rosacea but there are skin treatments and some products that can help.

 


ABCDES Of Moles/Nevi

If you've recently spotted a new mole on your skin, the first rule is, don't panic. Many people develop moles, atypical or acquired, over their lifetimes and many of these are completely healthy.

How Can I Make My Products Work Better?

Dr. Rueckl suggests a few simple things:

Make sure your skin is damp before you apply any products, including reapplication of sunscreen.

Spritz a little water on your skin, or apply products (thinnest to thickest) right after you shower. You don't want to apply products to dry skin for several reasons: 1. you will use more product than necessary, 2. your skin won't absorb the products as much because the skin is dry and your products will just sit on the surface. When your skin is wet, it's able to absorb products better, meaning you get better results and you apply less product.
