Best Skin Care Products in Utah - Revivology Medical Spa in South JordanWinter is just around the corner and living in Utah’s high desert with its cold, dry air often means dry, flaky skin.

But…Is it really the environment that causes your dry skin?

Utahn’s spend millions of dollars every year to combat effects of thirsty skin, but the best medicine might be FREE and flowing from every tap in your house.

“The skin is an organ, and just like any other part of the body, your skin is made up of cells which are made up of water,” said Miki Eberhardt, a local Registered Dietitian.

“If your skin is not getting a sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky,” she said.Best Skin Care Products in Utah - Revivology Medical Spa in UT

“Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling. When your skin cells are properly hydrated, it will give you a radiant, healthy, and younger-looking complexion,” Eberhardt, said.

Experts say drinking plenty of water AND using water-based lotions, especially during winter months, is an effective approach to regulate moisture inside the skin and keep it looking its best.

She was probably trying to help you avoid sickness and wanted you to grow big and tall.

It turns out that taking your vitamins isn’t just mom’s remedy for cold prevention anymore.  Certain vitamins can help your skin and face stay looking young and beautiful!

By now you’ve heard antioxidants, like vitamins, are good for your body, but did you also know they’re good for your skin?

Antioxidants in vitamins C, E and Selenium may protect your skin from skin cancer and sun damage. There’s also evidence that antioxidants enhance your skin’s natural repair system and prevent further damage, according to a Web MD article.

Vitamin B also plays an important role in keep your skin at its best.  If you’ve got dry itchy skinSkin Care Products at Revivology in South Jordan, Utah, experts say it could be caused by a Vitamin B deficiency.

As Summer Bids a Fond Goodbye, here’s a refresher on skin cancer

That amazing beach vacation in Hawaii may soon be a distant memory but cooler weather brings walks, ski vacations and additional time under ole sol…when your skin will again be exposed to damaging UV rays. It’s a fact: premature aging, wrinkles, spots and skin cancer can all trace their beginnings to the sun. 
When abnormal cells invade or spread to other parts of the body, the result is skin cancer.Scary words for sure, that none of us want to hear. But many skin cancers can be easily and successfully treated if caught early. That’s why it is important to have your skin – all of it – checked at least once a year for changes or abnormalities, to have pre-cancerous lesions treated and to examine any otherwise suspicious growths. This is especially critical as you age. The three types of skin cancer are:

    • Basal cell…a slow growing cancer which is unlikely to spread to distant areas of the body or cause death. It appears as a painless, sometimes shiny raised area of the skin.
    • Squamous cell…is more likely to spread. It appears as a hard lump with a scaly top.
    • Melanoma…is the most aggressive. Moles that have changed in size, color or shape or are itchy or bleed are some of the signs of melanoma.
  • Skin cancer is serious, but most skin cancers, if found early, are treatable.
  • People with many moles have a higher risk of melanoma.
  • Other risk factors include advanced age, heredity, light skin color and exposure to tanning beds.
  • Over one million people in the U.S. each year are diagnosed with skin cancer. Unfortunately, many more go undiagnosed.
  • UVA and UVB sunscreen helps block the rays than lead to skin cancer but it does not prevent it…sun damage is cumulative.To be effective, sunscreen must be worn!
