A skincare-themed forum and education campaign in Beijing marked the 12th National Skin Care Day on Friday.
Incorporating scientific skincare techniques, reasonable cleaning, moisturizing and sunscreen use, the campaign was initiated by the Chinese Medical Doctor Association (CMDA) and Peking Union Medical College Hospital to unveil guidebooks to popularize scientific skincare information.
According to the forum, skin cleansing is the foundation for skin health while moisturizing helps maintain a protective layer. Sunscreen is to protect skin from aging and lesions.
The guidebooks focus on the three processes and use easy-to-understand language. They tackle questions of common concern, like how to properly wash the face and how to select moisturizer and sun cream.
Dermatological experts with the CMDA gave a detailed interpretation to the guidebooks and answered questions from forum participants.
The books are geared to everyone, and as well those with special concerns, such as senior citizens, teenagers and pregnant women. Free skin care consultation was offered after the forum.
The campaign was conducted simultaneously among more than 500 hospitals nationwide.
