Protecting your skin throughout all of the seasons of the year is an important, but often overlooked, aspect of health. Using sunscreen is extremely important when it is hot and sunny outside, but it is also important to moisturize your skin too!
Moisture helps your skin repair itself. This comes in handy if your skin is damaged by something more serious, like the sun or an infection. A good amount of moisture in your skin also help reduce the likeliness of minor skin problems like tightness and itchiness.
Make sure you are using both sunscreen and moisturizer this summer!
Sleep is an important--and often ignored--part of health. That's why we encourage our residents to have good sleep hygiene, which involves creating a good environment for restful, restorative sleep.
Try these tips for better sleep: - Keep your sleeping environment dark and free from noises - Stop using electronic devices at least 1 hour before bed, as the blue light emitted from screens can disrupt sleep - Keep your room between 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit, which is proven to be the ideal sleep temperature
