Summer officially starts in less than a week and the National Women's Health Resource Center (NWHRC) is helping women gear up to have a skin-healthy season.
"Women & Their Skin" examines the latest trends in skin health including the growing problem of skin cancer and the myths that keep women from using sunscreens and limiting sun exposure. For example, the myth that tanning booths are safe. The truth is that just 15 to 30 minutes in a tanning salon is the equivalent of an entire day at the beach.
A highlight of the issue is the lifestyle column of NWHRC Medical Advisor Pamela Peeke, MD, gives her "Ten Foods to Eat for Your Face, " a list of the good for your face foods, the foods which may prevent wrinkles. She also examines the role of nutrition, stress and exercise in your skin's health.
The eight-page National Women's Health Report also offers insight into common conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, adult acne and rosacea that require medical treatment.

"Beginning in adolescence we collectively spend billions on cosmetics and cosmetic procedures," she continued. "We should also recognize that there is other women struggle with ongoing skin conditions that seriously affect the quality of life
