What's the Purpose of Armpit Hair?
(http://ow.ly/yxxn30nwYUB)

Armpit hair is an annoyance for some, but there are several theories to explain why it might have served our ancestors. One suggests that armpit hair reduces friction, thereby making things like moving arms while walking less irritating on our skin.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Friendly affection doesn’t have to be so sugar-coated! Rather than giving boxes of chocolates or sugary treats to your loved ones, try gifting heart healthy options, like fresh fruits. Spread the love this Valentine’s Day by celebrating heart health and vitality.

What Are Acne Lesions?
(http://ow.ly/FWVb30nwYUs)

Acne lesions form as inflamed papules (small red or pink bumps on the skin) that can be quite painful if irritated. You should never try to pinch or pick at these lesions, as it can lead to scarring. Anyone can get lesions.

Don't Use Nail Polish Remover on Your Skin
(http://ow.ly/9E5430nwYUp)

When you make a mistake and get some nail polish on your skin instead of on your nail, don't reach for the polish remover. It's got loads of chemicals that aren't good for your skin. Instead, use a non-acetone remover or coconut oil to remove the stain.

If You've Built Up a Sweat, You Need to Wash
(http://ow.ly/18dY30nwYUm)

Acne is caused when debris and germs infect our follicles, which makes keeping them clean imperative. Whenever you're done at the gym, be sure to wash your face. This will help prevent the sweat and debris from your workout from causing acne breakouts.

Tired Skin at the Cellular Level
(http://ow.ly/nPFz30nwYUj)

If your skin is looking worn out, dry, or discolored, there's a good chance your skin cells aren't being replaced often enough. Dead skin cells can accumulate at the surface of your skin, which results in duller, less vibrant-looking skin.

#exfoliate #microderm #sknicare

To increase the turnover rate of your skin, you need a professional-grade exfoliation treatment. At Dermatology Center of Northwest Houston, our microdermabrasion specialist will gently remove this layer of dead skin cells to replace them with newer, more vibrant-looking cells. To schedule your appointment, call (281) 256-2000, or use the online scheduling tool to request your appointment: (http://ow.ly/lQJc30nwYUk).

What to Look for in Skin Moisturizers
(http://ow.ly/yHcs30nwYUg)

A good skin moisturizer can make any day a great-looking skin day. In general, look for products that contain natural oils instead of chemicals or fillers. Natural oils, like those from flowers and seeds, mimic the moisturizing capabilities of your skin.

What Do Skin Cells Look Like?
(http://ow.ly/2Sla30nwYUc)

You know what your skin looks like at a visible level, but what about at the cellular level? Skin cells resemble a 14-sided shape and are locked together in a sort of layer-like pattern to form what you see as your skin.

Can I Self-Diagnose Skin Cancer?
(http://ow.ly/NWTz30nwYU8)

Educating patients to be able to look for signs of cancer can be effective in getting early treatment, but it isn't foolproof. Only a certified dermatologist specialist with years of experience identifying and treating skin cancers should diagnose skin cancer cases.

#skincancer #melanoma #health

Skin cancer, fortunately, has one of the lowest mortality rates of any cancer, but it still isn't something you can shrug off. Lisa Hitchins, MD, a board-certified dermatologist at Dermatology Center of Northwest Houston, strongly recommends a regular physical exam, so any potential risks are identified early. To schedule a consultation, call Dr. Hitchin's office at (281) 256-2000, or use the online scheduling tool to request your appointment: (http://ow.ly/vtWP30nwYU9).

Your Skin Needs Protection In Winter Too!

Sunscreen isn't just for summer. Winter sun can still damage your skin. Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen to your face, hands and any other part of your body that is exposed, about 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply frequently if you stay outside for a long period of time.
