October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.
Fall Tips to Get Your Best Skin Ever
Schedule a professional facial or chemical peel. As much as skin care products can work wonders to improve the health of your skin, they can only do so much. Particularly when it comes to post-summer sun spots and acne conditions, most people would see faster and increased results from professional-strength treatments and facials.
Boost hydration by using an alcohol-free toner and leaving it damp on the skin. Toners that are alcohol-free are a perfect way to give your skin the water and hydration it so desperately needs in the fall when the temperatures are cooler. Your skin cells are like fish. They need water to live, and without water, they die prematurely resulting in unhealthy skin.
Re-assess your skin care routine. Chances are you have a mix and match of various skin care lines along with an abundance of skin care products that you may or may not be using–or even know how to use. Pull out all of your skin products and analyze each one. Toss what is over two years old, smells bad or has changed consistency.
Commit to cleansing your skin every night. Too tired to wash your face at night? Your skin doesn’t need to be washed five minutes before your head hits the pillow so do it earlier, rather than never! When you don’t do this, you’re letting your skin marinate in makeup while you sleep, not to mention a day’s worth of oil and bacteria buildup, which leads to clogged pores and blemishes!
Get your beauty sleep. There is no doubt that getting enough sleep every night can offer many skin benefits. Sleep can make your skin glow; a lack of sleep causes the skin to look pale and tired because the circulation has been impaired. Sleep deprivation also causes stress, which can aggravate all skin conditions, including acne, eczema and psoriasis. When you are tired, you look tired, so do your best to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night.
