Healthy aging is more than high blood pressure and watching what you eat. Healthy aging is also taking a step back and looking at the state of your mental, emotional and let’s not forget about your overall skin health.
Skin is the largest organ of the human body, so why do we neglect it so much?! Most of us are more focused on what we put into our bodies (which is fantastic, we need to eat properly) but we also need to start taking a little more time to pamper not only the largest part of our body but the most exposed!
It may not be considered “pampering” but doing a skin self-exam on a regular basis is a great way to make sure you are aging healthy. You know what they say, if you can spot it, you can stop it! Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers and the easiest to cure, so take the time to do those self-exams.
Not sure what to look for?! Here’s a good video to show how to properly do a skin cancer self-exam!
Not only do we need to do self-exams but we should schedule an annual exam by a medical professional. DermaBlue is offering a FREE Skin Cancer Screening on October 13th in honor of Summer ending and September being Healthy Aging Month!
