When he is not at the clinic, Dylan enjoys finding new areas in Toronto to explore, as well as baking delicious treats for his friends and family.

Dylan’s skin care tip: Sunscreen is the most important thing you can do for your skin. When used consistently and correctly, sunscreen can prevent sunburns, skin cancer, and premature skin aging. A broad-spectrum, water resistant sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher should be used whenever possible.

Ashley's skin care tip: Avoid using harsh exfoliants like ground nut shells, pumice, and sand, which are damaging to the skin. Instead, try using a natural or chemical (with guidance) exfoliant depending on your skin type.

She hopes to take additional nursing courses and travel more in the near future.

Ellen's skin care tip :For sensitive skin it’s best to pick a body wash that is hydrating and fragrance free. Ceramides support the skin barrier and help with skin hydration.
