Month of November: Health Observance Topic

National Healthy Skin Month

November Observance 2015

November is officially National Healthy Skin Month in the United States. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) first implemented the month of November as healthy skin month in order to raise awareness about the importance of keeping skin fresh, hydrated and healthy all year round (healthyskinportal.com).

The most common skin condition in the United States is Acne. Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition - is characterized by blackheads and whiteheads, pimples, and deeper lumps(cyst and nodules) that occur on the face, neck chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms. Approximately 40 to 50 million Americans are affected by acne every year (ada.org). Acne usually begins during puberty and affects adolescents and young adults and approximately 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24 experience at least minor acne.

Ways of preventing acne or lower the including gently washing one's face multiple times a day and shampooing one's hair daily especially if it is oily, using oily-free cosmetics, toiletries, and sunscreens. There are also foods to avoid eating because they can actually make acne worse - such as white grain foods (pasta, rice and bread). For more ways to prevent acne, please visit the American Academy of Dermatology website.
