Skin Care with Dr. Shatkin Jr. March 17th 2008

Proper skin care is essential to maintain a youthful look. Excessive sun exposure and smoking can create premature aging as seen with loss of elasticity of the skin, thinning of the top layer (epidermis) and loss of the organization of the collagen layer of the deeper part of the skin. I compare good skin care to brushing your teeth daily, eating good food and exercising regularly. You need to get into healthy routines and not expect to just go in once a year to get your skin buffed or teeth cleaned. Proper cleansing, exfoliation, moisturizing and sun protection are essential.
