SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A unique new Web site created by dermatologists lets kids learn how to practice good skin care virtually, or risk the consequences of pimples, greasy hair, a poison ivy rash and sunburn. The interactive game, "It's a Skin Cell's Life," is just one of the many features on the American Academy of Dermatology's (Academy) new Web site www.KidsSkinHealth.org, which provides information about caring for skin, hair and nails to kids ages 8-12 and their parents.

"The Academy is committed to teaching children and their parents about skin, hair and nail care, and an interactive and engaging Web site is the perfect way to do that," said dermatologist David M. Pariser, MD, FAAD, president of the Academy. "The Web site, which was created with feedback from children and their parents, helps us encourage the development of lifelong habits that ensure good health, such as using sunscreen for protection against the harmful rays of the sun."

The KidsSkinHealth.org home page features two portals: For Kids and For Grown Ups.

  • Kids Portal - Sammy the Skin Cell guides kids through the site, which explains how skin, hair and nails work, and how to take care of them
