Pop Quiz: What is the largest organ in the human body?
Answer: Your skin!
Did you know that your skin is the first in line of defense against infections, germs and pollutants. Therefore, it is crucial to include skincare into your healthcare regimen. Carefully choosing the right dermatologist is a great way to start the process to a healthier you.
I don’t know about you but the climate change has negative effects on my skin. Since I suffer from dry, combination skin, and dermatitis, making sure I use the right moisturizer, soap, and facial cleaners is very important. My skincare routine includes fragrance free soaps and cleansers for my sensitive skin but I need professional assistance in treating my dermatitis. Regular visits to my dermatologist, like Jonathan Zizmor, M.D., helps me get the best skincare possible. After all, achieving healthy glowing skin is possible with the help of a professional.

My Skincare Tips
Dress Appropriately For The Weather: Wear proper clothing to protect your skin from harsh winds and humidity. A pair of sunglasses, a scarf, and a lightweight jacket are perfect protecting your skin against those windy days. 100% cotton clothing is also essential in your wardrobe all year round. Cotton is a hypoallergenic fabric that naturally wicks away sweat on humid days.
SPF (Sun Protection Factor) Should Be Your BFF: Integrate a moisturizer with SPF. Just because you’re not sun bathing doesn’t mean your skin isn’t being exposed to harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Eat Healthy: Foods rich in “good fats” (essential fatty acids) like almonds, walnuts, flaxseed, salmon, and olive oil promote skin cells to stay hydrated, hence less dry skin. Sneak some nuts into your salads or oatmeal. Skip the red meat and order the fish at dinner. Your skin will thank you. 🙂
See A Professional: For people who suffer from dermatitis or any other skin condition should seek the advice from a professional. Don’t be afraid to see a dermatologist, they are there to help and get your skin healthy.
