November is National Healthy Skin Month so it’s a great time to review your current skincare regimen and implement some new healthy routines.

That’s ok! Your goal should NOT be based on the outward appearance of your skin, but to have the healthiest skin possible.

And it’s not just external triggers that affect your skin health. Unmanaged stress can also make you appear older and take a physical toll on your skin, hair, and nails.
