Moisturize: Even oily skin needs moisturizer. Consult with a physician or dermatologist to determine your skin type and the right moisturizer for you.
Protect: Apply sunscreen before going outside. Sunscreens with a higher sun protection factor (SPF) provide greater protection. Follow the instructions on the sunscreen.
It’s also helpful to get enough sleep and make healthy food choices. This may help your overall health, including your skin health.
Sometimes skin conditions can impact your health, physical appearance, and even your state of mind. A few of those conditions include acne, rosacea, melanoma, eczema, and psoriasis. These conditions may be temporary or permanent and vary in intensity.
When you have psoriasis, patches of your skin can become raised, red, silver, or flaky. But psoriasis starts inside the body, underneath the skin. It happens when your immune system is overactive. This causes inflammation, which leads to your body making too much skin. The skin builds up on the surface and forms raised red, silver, or flaky patches. These are called plaques. They often itch and can hurt or bleed when touched.
