Wondering how to take better care of your skin? When it comes to your skin, there’s a lot of information out there, along with a lot of products, and a lot of skin care myths, that may be making it harder for you to take care of your skin.
So what are some things that you definitely need to avoid in order to maintain healthier skin?
Skin No-No’s That Are Hurting You
1. You have no idea what your skin type is. If you don’t know your skin type, then you’re probably using the wrong products. Using the right ingredients can make a significant difference in the appearance of your skin. To help you figure out what type of skin you have, please read The Key To Flawless Skin.
2. You’re not using SPF. This is one skin health fact worth repeatinng – darker skin tones need sun protection, too! One unpublished study by Unilever showed that using just SPF 5 every day for five years prevented significant sun damage. Do yourself and your skin a favor and use a moisturizer with at least SPF 15.
3. You’re getting too much sun exposure. 10 to 15 minutes of unprotected sun a few times a week can help your body get its vitamin D fix, but if you’re outside for an hour a day without sunscreen, your skin will eventually remind you of this.
