How To Treat Your Skin Economically

Calling your skin an actual organ may be a bit of a stretch, so to speak, since your skin stretches across your whole body. But your skin does cover most of your exterior surface, so treating your skin correctly is essential to your overall health.

Many natural and inexpensive skin care products are available at a much lower cost to treat your skin, nail, and hair problems when you can’t afford fancier treatments.

Some low-cost skin care tips include the following:

  • First, have your dermatologist determine your skin type—If you have dry, sensitive skin, you may need more hydration. Oily skin can cause more problems with acne. The feedback from your dermatologist is instrumental to determining your skin type.
  • Keep your skin clean and moisturized—Use a mild soap and warm water to avoid any harsh chemicals.
  • Use products that don’t contain harsh chemicals—Vaseline is a great, inexpensive and multipurpose hypoallergenic product that can treat dry skin, blisters, cuts, and abrasions.
  • Protect your skin from UV rays—Excessive UV light exposure can create skin lesions that may progress to cancer, so be sure to check with your dermatologist to help avoid any complications.

If you notice any changes in your skin color or condition, or if you need help determining what type of skin you have, see your board-certified dermatologist to ensure the most effective and efficient treatments.
