Tips for Healthy Skin

1. Wash up
Bathe in warm—not hot—water; use mild cleansers that don’t irritate; and wash gently—don’t scrub.

2. Block sun damage
Avoid intense sun exposure, use sunscreen, and wear protective clothing.

3. Avoid dry skin
Drink plenty of water and use gentle moisturizers, lotions, or creams.

4. Reduce stress
Stress can harm your skin and other body systems.

5. Get enough sleep
Experts recommend about 9 hours a night for teens and 7-8 hours for adults.

6. Speak up
Talk to your doctor if you notice any odd changes on your skin, like a rash or mole that changes size or color.
