With National Healthy Skin Month in full swing, TIMETOSPA.com experts sat down to take a deep dive into some of the most important skincare tips for men and women today and what an amazing time to do this.
Created by the American Academy of Dermatology, this month is meant to make us more aware of the correlations between healthy skin and overall wellness. For example, stress can bring about flare-ups of psoriasis, eczema, acne, and rosacea; therefore, managing it helps to keep your skin in check. By simply following at least one of these tips, your skin and overall health will benefit.
TIP #1: Getting to know the functionality of the largest organ in the body is critical. It is vital to determine your skin type. From normal to sensitive, oily to dry, and or combination skin, your skincare regimen should be tailored to your type of skin.
TIP #2: Wash all day, every day. Make sure to wash your face upon waking to remove the dirt and bacteria that settle on your face while sleeping. Cleansing after a workout with a mild product and lukewarm water will help to remove the sweat. If you are on the move, pop one of your favorite travel-sized. skincare products into your duffle bag. Don't forget to wash your skin before bed — removing makeup, grime, smog, smoke, or dirt that may have landed on your skin throughout the day.
TIP #3: Moisturizing daily, once in the morning and once at night will help lock in your glow. Day moisturizer protects and hydrates, while night creams rebalance and brighten. Try applying your cleanser in a circular motion with your fingertips, rinse, pat dry with a clean towel, and apply moisturizer while the skin is still damp to lock in moisture.

TIP #4: SPF, the miracle to youthful skin! Protecting your skin from the sun with broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30+ reduces age spots and wrinkles while keeping skin healthy. Make sure to examine your skin for unusual spots, itching, or bleeding that could be signs of skin danger.
