A dermatologist is a doctor who specializes in diseases of skin, hair, nails, sebaceous and sweat glands. In addition, there are such specialties as a trichologist (specializes in treatment of scalp and hair), dermatologist-cosmetologist and dermatovenerologist.
Skin health isn’t just about looks; it is vitality, immunity, quality of life. Therefore, it is very important to consult a dermatologist on time.

How to prevent rapid skin aging?
Skin aging is a natural process, but there are factors that can accelerate it. Two essential factors are:
- Hormonal background. Women, who have had an early menopause, can suffer early skin ageing. In this case, after having weighed up the pros and cons, the doctor can prescribe hormone replacement therapy that will affect not only the skin condition, but also other important functions of the body.
- The sun. Studies show that sun exposure is the key factor of skin ageing. One should use sunblock even on days when the sun is not very bright, and even more so – in the heat. Also one should remember that “toasting” on the beach certainly does the skin more harm than good.
How to moisturize dry facial skin?
To get rid of dry and tight skin, try to follow these easy recommendations:
- Change your moisturizer every few years, as the skin gets used to the same ingredients and stops responding to them. The moisturizing cream should include hyaluronic, milk or glycolic acid that retains moisture in the cells.
- Moisturize your skin with thermal water before applying the cream.
- Make moisturizing face masks twice a week.
- Do not expose your face to the sun, protect it from frost.
- Drink more water.
- Do not wash your face with hot water.
- Buy a small air humidifier and put it near your workplace, if possible.
