Maintaining the health and appearance of your skin relies on gentle but effective daily care and regular visits to your dermatologist's office to help prevent, diagnose and treat any potential abnormalities. The skin is susceptible to many different conditions, from acne, eczema and psoriasis to moles, warts and skin cancer lesions. Detecting these conditions as early as possible can often help minimize long-term damage to the skin, while a customized skincare regimen can help reduce the risk of developing these conditions and related complications. It is important to practice healthy skin care habits on a daily basis to help prevent conditions from developing. Unhealthy skin care habits can lead to long-term problems such as premature aging.
