Ten Questions to Ask Your Dermatologist / Cosmetologist
Inform yourself about your skin and help your doctor to help you.
It is best to visit the dermatologist / Cosmetologist once a year, more often if you have a history of active skin problems.
When you visit your doctor, arrive with educated questions:
*How much is enough sunscreen and what active ingredient should I look for?
*What are the signs of skin cancer and how often should I have my moles checked?
*How is my makeup affecting my skin?
*What can you tell me about the latest anti-aging products?
*What is the best way to treat visible sun damage?
*How will hormone replacement therapy or birth control affect my skin?
*How should I take care of my nails?
*Are self-tanners really safe and do you recommend them?
*What is the best facial cleansing routine for me?
*How should I take care of my hair if I perm or color-treat it?
