Prevention and treatment of these common skin problems is not quite so simple. In treating acne, the first place to look is the daily diet of the individual. Our skin is often the best indicator of how healthfully we eat and if we are getting enough sleep. As for using skin care products, stay away from long lists of chemicals. For example, my moisturizer has three main ingredients: shea butter, neem oil, and lavender oil. Natural = better! In fact, the first step in preventing dry skin is hydration! Drink lots of water and your skin will thank you. Finally, studies have shown that sunscreens actually put you at higher risk for skin cancer (again, all those chemicals!) so be smart about sun exposure by covering up, wearing a hat, and limiting time in the sun.
