Take it easy on your face

Keeping your skin clean when its sensitive actually requires less work. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, washing the face once a day should be enough for people with sensitive skin. Be careful if you want to exfoliate. When you have sensitive skin, the exfoliation process can actually cause irritation.

Combating cavities

Helping prevent tooth decay and fighting cavities could be as simple as making sure fluoride is in your drinking water. According to the American Dental Academy, many community water systems contain fluoride, but if you prefer to drink bottled water, check the label to make sure it is an ingredient, as some bottled waters don’t contain any fluoride.

Rosy red cheeks? Could be rosacea

Red spots, bumps and pimples lead many people to assume that they have adult acne, but those symptoms could be indicators of a completely different skin disorder called rosacea. Rosacea often begins as a chronic disorder after age 30 and is characterized by redness around the cheeks, nose, forehead or chin. An estimated 16 million Americans suffer from some form of rosacea, though the primary causes are still unknown.

Cold weather SPF

Just like your skin, protecting your lips from the suns effects is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends year-round use of a lip balm with a broad spectrum SPF 30 to prevent chapped lips and guard against skin cancer.

Recovery mode

Artificial nails are fashionable, but they can be harsh on your actual nails when used for extended periods of time. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends giving your nails a rest every two or three months for a few days at a time.
