(http://ow.ly/LHUf30npxwb)

When antibiotics or creams don't treat your acne as effectively as you’d like, consider adding in medical treatments that can help. These may include chemical peels, light therapy, or injections. All these treatments are designed to treat the underlying cause of acne and reduce its appearance on the skin. Talk to your doctor about what treatments may be right for you.

Essential Vitamin
(http://ow.ly/e47A30npxw8)

Vitamin D is important in the development of healthy bones, as it helps the body to absorb calcium. The most common source to obtain this vitamin from is sun exposure, however too much can lead to skin cancer. Instead of risking the health of your skin, look for food sources high in this vitamin, such as fatty fish, dairy products, and fortified cereal products.

(http://ow.ly/eg6h30npxw7)

The sun emits strong ultraviolet rays that consist of UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays are less intense than UVB rays, and we are exposed to large amounts yearly. It is thought to contribute to common signs of aging, such as wrinkles. UVB is the stronger of the two ultraviolet rays and is the main contributor of skin reddening and sunburn in individuals.

During the winter months, your skin can become dry, flakey, and even show signs of eczema. ❄️ This winter season, change up your beauty regimen by reducing hot showers, drinking lots of water and moisturizing every day. Forget the harsh face masks and alcohol-based toners during the winter months as well. These types of products may make your skin even drier.

Melanoma Skin Cancer
(http://ow.ly/IYmQ30npxw6)

The most serious and risky form of skin cancer is melanoma, as it tends to spread to other parts of the body if not treated right away. As scary as this may sound, if it is caught early enough it can often be removed without causing further issues in the future. Be aware of the warning signs, such as darkening or growing moles, and seek out a dermatologist who can help you monitor or test for any changes.

(http://ow.ly/V0Ho30npxw4)

If you suffer from acne, you may think that using a moisturizer isn't beneficial for your skin. However, many different products that are intended to treat acne can also dry out or irritate your skin. If you choose a moisturizer that is oil-free and doesn't clog your pores, you may actually see an improvement in your overall skin’s appearance and acne.

Eating healthy and staying active are great ways to prevent cancer. Regular screening exams can also be used to find cancer early when they might be easier to treat. For this World Cancer Day, make sure you help create a future without cancer.
