A good skin care routine is the foundation to great looking skin. However, you will have to adjust your skin care regimen periodically, to meet the changing needs of your skin. This will require a visit to your dermatologist, but you may not be sure when is the ideal time to get your checks done. Are you wondering – How often should I consult a doctor about my skin care treatment plan. Let’s find out.
The regularity with which you need to consult with your doctor about your skin care regimen depends on several factors including:
The changing needs of your skin: The needs of your skin change as you age. The skin care regimen that may have been great for you in your 20’s, won’t work for you when you get to your 30’s or 40’s. So you’re going to have to switch it up for every decade of life. It’s therefore a good idea to consult your doctor every 5-10 years about your skin care program.
Extreme weather changes: If you are suddenly faced with temperatures that are much colder or hotter than normal, it’s always a good idea to consult your doctor andreview your skin care plan. When faced with harsher weather, you need to take extra care of your skin, because it will need added protection and deeper hydration.
However, if you develop any major skin issues, then be sure to visit your doctor immediately for an evaluation and treatment.
