New Year New Skin

mother and daughter

When it comes to your body and your health, it’s the perfect time of year to start doing things better. While making your list of New Year’s resolutions for more exercise and better eating, don’t’ forget the largest organ in the body – your skin. Giving your skin some extra TLC will not only protect your health, but it can also make a dramatic difference in your overall appearance. What changes will you make in 2017 to improve your skin health? Here are some suggestions:

#1 Wear Sunscreen Daily.
Regardless of the temperature outside, go ahead and lather up with a good SPF 30 sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Remember you are still exposed during the winter or while sitting next to a window in the car or at work!

#2 Schedule A Full Body Skin Check.
An annual skin screening from your dermatologist is the best way to stay on top of your skin health. We can look for suspicious lesions and moles, including those that you can’t see very well on your back. During this annual exam, you’ll also have a chance to discuss special skin care products that are best for your skin type.
#3 Follow Better Makeup Rules
If you are a woman and wear makeup on a daily basis, you’ve got more responsibility when it comes to your skin health. First, make sure you remove your makeup each night before bed. Your skin needs to breathe and have a chance to renew itself while you sleep. This will also help prevent acne breakouts and delay the onset of wrinkles. Also, be sure to change out your makeup brushes often or clean them on a weekly basis if you can. Oil and dirt can build up on your brushes and sabotage your skin care efforts.
#4 Hydrate!
Your skin needs hydration. If you don’t already do so, apply a moisturizer or lotion on your face and body after showering. Hydrating your skin can help your skin look healthier and younger! In addition, it can reduce the likelihood of skin rashes and other conditions that arise from dry, itchy skin. Ask your dermatologist for the best moisturizing product for your specific skin. Another way to hydrate your entire body and boost your skin health is to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Increasing your water consumption is an excellent New Year’s resolution!
#5 Get Enough Sleep.
Yes, it is true that you need your beauty sleep. Getting adequate amounts of shuteye each night allows your entire body to restore itself, including your skin. You will benefit from a more glowing complexion and less dark circles under your eyes if you make sleep a priority this year.

To schedule your annual skin screening with a reputable team of dermatologists in Atlanta, call Olansky Dermatology Associates. We look forward to doing our part to make 2017 a year of better skin health for you!

Mandy Ramer, NP-C was such a pleasure to meet with. She listened to all of my concerns and addressed each one with a plan that fit my needs. I am so glad I picked Olansky Dermatology. Absolutely thrilled with their service from appointment setting through check out.

Kara E.

The appointment process is quick easy and convenient online. Parking is easy enough. I got in basically right at my appointment time. I didn’t have to wait hardly at all. The doctors and nurses are nice, knowledgeable and helpful. The procedure I had was easy and I got out fast and was on my way.

Suzanne H.

This was probably the best experience I’ve ever had going to a dermatologist. Every interaction I had with the staff was pleasant and they were so helpful. I had accidentally cancelled my appointment and the girls at the front desk help me get in so I could be seen and someone could help me. Which I really appreciated, most places would have just turned me away. The doctor or pa I saw that day I can’t remember her name was lovely and took great care of me. I will be going to Olansky’s going forward. You will not be disappointed! The staff is excellent!

Coriana W.

Dr. Bender honestly changed my life around. I had extremely bad hormonal and cystic acne, and have been told for years that there is nothing I can do but wash my face and etc.. Dr. Bender gave me hope that there is hope she helped get my confidence back and now I’m finally free. She cares about her patients and takes her time with you every visit. If you need help in anything derma-logical then you really need to go to her.

Jenny S.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

Tamima D.

My husband is a patient of PA Sharon Doering I appreciate all she did for my spouse. She’s very down to earth & made him feel comfortable. Sharon communicated in a way that he can understand.
Thank You

Betty G.

I have had excellent experience at Olansky Dermatology. Dr Burger is meticulous and thorough and has a most pleasant and calm manner. I have every confidence in her and this office.

Cheyenne G.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!
