Protection of your body
The skin is the protection of our body. That’s why our skin plays a crucial part in how we feel; good skin health adds up to feeling good. If you take good care of yourself and adapt your lifestyle based on your personal health than you should also consider your skin as an important part of this.
And skin protection is much more than staying out of the sun. It is also about moisturizing and checking skin sport regularly. As SkinVision, we want to make it easy for you to check your skin for any melanoma symptoms, and that’s a good start. Also, make sure that you protect your skin as a precursor, and that’s where we are talking about next!
Sun: healthy or dangerous?
The sun is both our lifeline and a risk. Our bodies take essential vitamins from the sun, that’s why we feel better when we’re in it. And that’s fine of course, please enjoy it. But make sure that you (and your friends) are also aware of the potential risk. UV exposure from sunlight has a proven effect on your skin, and with too much exposure it could lead to skin diseases like melanoma/skin cancer.
Always make sure that, based on your skin type, avoid exposing yourself too much to direct sunlight. When the sun is the brightest, seek some shade. And also use sunscreen, especially if you have pale skin – in that case, use a sunscreen with higher protection.
The food that we eat also has a direct impact on our skin. Healthy skin comes from nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and everything else that we take from good food. When you take good care of your eating, it will reflect on your skin.
So in the end, everything comes down to a healthy lifestyle and taking good care of your own skin and body.
