Skin Cancer Risk
  • Skin is the largest organ of the body.
  • Skin grows faster than all other organs. The skin renews itself throughout our lives.
  • You have about 19,000,000 skin cells on each square inch of your body.
  • Always wash your hands before you begin your skincare ritual to decrease the amount of bacteria put on your face.
  • Rinse your face with water that is warm, not hot. Hot water can dry out the skin and can cause broken capillaries.
  • Don't scrub, pull or drag your skin. Using forceful pressure on your skin can break capillaries, foster wrinkles and make skin sensitive.
  • Avoid wearing makeup when you exercise. When you exercise and your body heats up, your pores open and the makeup goes in the pores. Later when you cool off and the pores close, the makeup will remain in the pores and can cause breakouts.
  • Watch your stress level. Stress can affect our health as well as our skin. Stress stimulates adrenaline, cortisol and other hormones that can increase blemishes.
  • Eat natural foods like fruit for a snack. Not only will you give your skin some extra Vitamins C and E, your skin will also benefit form the extra water fruit contains.
