SMART Health Today – July 2022

TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY’S LARGEST ORGAN — YOUR SKIN! Your skin performs many vital functions to protect you. It’s your first layer of defense, acting as a barrier to prevent germs from entering the body and causing infections. Sweat glands and tiny blood vessels in your skin help to control your body temperature. The nerve endings in your skin alert your body to potential dangers by detecting pressure, pain, heat, and cold, so you can quickly react.

Published by OASH I Office on Women’s Health https://www.womenshealth.gov/blog/7-tips-sun-safety A few years ago I had a small skin cancer removed, making me one of the nearly 5 million people treated for skin cancer every year in the United States.

Most sunscreens sold at major U.S. retailers and their websites now offer broad-spectrum protection, are water-resistant and have an SPF (sun protection factor) of 30 or higher as the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends, a new study found. But more than a third of sunscreens sold by several of the nation’s largest retailers fell short. Forty-one percent of sunscreens did not meet all three recommendations, researchers [...]

Newborn Skin 101

Published by Johns Hopkins Medicine https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/newborn-skin-101 Odd rashes, suspicious crusting and bumps that crop up from out of the blue are all common afflictions of newborn skin that rarely portend something ominous and are easy to treat. Yet, they have scared many first-time parents into calling their pediatrician after hours or rushing to the emergency room. “Neonatal rashes tend to develop suddenly and have a dramatic appearance that can easily frighten a rookie parent, but luckily most of these are completely benign,” says Johns Hopkins Children’s Center dermatologist Kate Püttgen, M.D. Offering her dual expertise as a mom and [...]

A defense against the external world, but it’s also a way to explore new sensations and to caress what we find desirable. There’s a connection between the mind and the skin, says Ted A. Grossbart, PhD, a psychologist at Harvard Medical School in Boston and author of Skin Deep: A Mind/Body Program for Healthy Skin.
