Dr. Sherry Ingraham Offers Skin Care Tips on KRIV-FOX 26!
Dr. Sherry Ingraham of Advanced Dermatology presents five manageable resolutions for prevention of aging and skin cancer. 1. PERFORM MONTHLY SKIN SELF-EXAMS. Be sure to examine everywhere and always be wary of your ABCDE's (Asymmetry, Border, Color, Diameter and Evolving). 2. SCHEDULE ANNUAL SKIN CANCER SCREENING APPOINTMENT. Visit a Board Certified dermatologist who is trained to promptly diagnosis any skin irregularity and provide accurate, advanced care. 3. WEAR SUNSCREEN. UVA rays cause skin aging, wrinkling and cancer. Apply an SPF of 30 or higher every day. 4. USE A RETINOID CREAM. Apply on your face before bed every other night. These vitamin A creams unclog pores, boost collagen to reduce fine lines and speed cell turnover to even out discoloration and smooth the skin. 5. CONSUME SKIN-HEALTHY NUTRIENTS. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins C, E and A. Pomegranate juice as well as green tea can help prevent sun damage and sun-induced skin aging.
