Giveaway-November National Healthy Skin Month

I like getting tips from the experts.  When the weather drops so do some people's healthy habits, including skin care.  I suffer from winter's itch, do you?
Did you know that November is National Healthy Skin Month?  

Dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie is revealing her top five tips to keep your skin healthy this month and all winter long!

1.  The best way to keep your skin hydrated is to moisturize daily.  This time of year, I love the AVEENO® Skin Relief 24HR Moisturizing Lotion, which keeps my skin super hydrated, so it is not dry and flaky.

2.  Opt for hydrating body washes and in shower cleansers!  I use an unscented, hydrating body wash.  I then get out of the shower and towel dry before I moisturize. 

3.  Pay attention to hands, feet, elbows and knees, which frequently can become dry, cracked or irritated. Keep them covered with protective clothing and look for a healing ointment, with ingredients like glycerin, like AVEENO® Skin Relief Healing Ointment, to help soothe irritated skin.

4.  Healthy skin is protected skin.  Everyone should wear sunscreen every day, no matter the time of year!  I recommend an SPF 30 or above for the face and body.  Reapplication is also very important.  The incidence of skin cancer is rising in all ethnicities – I cannot stress the importance of sunscreen enough.

5.  Everyone should visit have a full body skin cancer screening once a year by a board certified dermatologist.  If you have an increased risk or family history of skin cancer, you may need them more frequently.
