Never do these things to your skin
All of us would like clear, healthy skin. However, we all have habits that compromise the health of our skin and we do not even realize it. Dermatologists tell us how we should treat our skin.
Never step out without sunscreen
Make sunscreen a part of your daily routine. When you expose your skin to the sun without using any sunscreen, you not only increase the risk of skin cancer but also damage collagen which results in lines, wrinkles and sun spots.
Avoid miracle products
Miracle products with secret ingredients may promise you the sky but these may contain toxic chemicals that can harm you. Steer clear of them.
Never try high end treatments D-I-Y
A home peel may sound like you can save loads of money but trying to use a professional strength peel at home can put you at great risk. There is also the possibility of complications arising.
Breaking pimples and deep cysts
When you suffer from painful and deep cystic acne, you may be tempted to pop it. However, stop yourself. This can rupture the cyst inside which will result in severe inflammatory reaction and even infection that may need drainage and oral antibiotics. Do not pop pimples either.
Be judicious with using soap
Do not use too much of soap. The skin is our body’s barrier that protects us from infections. When you overuse soap or aggressively scrub skin, this breaks down the components in the skin and makes you more susceptible to skin diseases and infections.
Never use expired products
Many times, you might be tempted to use expired products because they look fine. However, this is to be avoided as their active ingredients may no longer work and there is the possibility of these irritating your skin.
