Skin Care Tips and Products
UAB Cosmetic Dermatology is dedicated to keeping your skin looking its best. Follow the tips below for healthier skin, or come by our office for a number of high-quality skin care products.
Applying 30 SPF sunscreen daily, even in the winter, is the single most important thing you can do for your skin. The sun's rays can cause wrinkling and premature dark spots, which can lead to skin cancer. Watch UAB Dermatologist Dr. Marian Northington explain why there is no such thing as a safe tan.
Drinking plenty of water (at least 8 8-oz glasses each day) keeps your skin hydrated and can help clear up blemishes and reduce dryness.
In addition to the host of medical conditions caused by smoking, lighting up can wreak havoc on your skin. Smoking causes premature wrinkles and tired looking skin.
