Sun Tanning

Sun Tanning

Some people feels that its good to spend entire days baking in the sun in order to tan their skin. But dermatologists says that sun worshipping will only causes premature aging -- and skin cancer.When the sun damages the cells and deeper skin tissues irreparably you get skin aging and you are more prone to skin cancer.Avoid getting sunburnt and damaging your skin, and make sure you make it a habit to wear long-sleeved clothing

Sun Screen

Sun Screen

Your sunscreen probably isn't shielding you from sun damage because most of us do not apply the right amount of SPF 30 or higher sunscreen. Most people under-apply by one-fourth. Whatever you're putting on is probably too little, so at least double it. Also, many people also don't apply sunscreen every two hours as dermatologists recommend.When you are going out in the Sun, apply sunscreen thicker and do not forget to re-apply after a couple of hours.

Tanning Beds

Tanning Beds

Some people thinks that tanning bed is safer than being outside in the sun. But think again!!!Tanning beds give you a concentrated burst of ultraviolet light that causes skin aging and will increase your risk for skin cancer. 'Never go into a tanning parlor,' Levine says. 'There couldn't be a worse thing to do to your skin.'Spray tans and self-tanning creams are a safe alternative to give you that golden glow without the harmful effects.

Smoking

Smoking

Lung cancer, emphysema, heart disease, and stroke aren't enough to scare you off cigarettes, how about all those wrinkles you'll get?Smoking does a lot of what the sun does. It just does it inside the body instead of outside also It makes the skin weak, tired, and dull looking. Smoking also yellows the skin, interferes with its blood supply, and slows wound healing.Don't think QUIT SMOKING as simple as that

Wrong Cleanser

Wrong Cleanser

Most people do big mistake when they wash their face is using a harsh soap that's meant for their body. Your skin will become very dry, chapped and may be even cracke if you are treating your skin wrong. Use right cleanser and moisturizer to give your skin a natural touch. - If you've sensitive skin use mild cleanser for your face.- If your skin acne prone make sure the cleanser you use is oil-free and noncomedogenic. - If your skin is dry follow up each wash by applying a layer of lotion (preferably one that contains sunscreen) to seal in the skin's moisture.

Scrubbing Skin

Scrubbing Skin

Washing your face is a good idea but scrubbing it isn't.Scrubbing can be very irritating to the skin. A lot of times people who have acne will feel like they have to scrub the skin to make it better, but that can actually worsen the acne.Be gentle to your skin. Wash your face using a soft, circular motion using your fingertips."

Popping Pimples

Popping Pimples

Many people have habit to pop up pimple to get rid of it. Whenever you feel tempted to pop a pimple, control the urge. 'Picking will make the acne worse and lead to permanent scarring,' Stein says. Better to leave it alone.Try over-the-counter pimple remedy containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. If that doesn't clear up your breakouts, call your dermatologist."

Overeating

Over Eating

Before you take another bite of that bacon double cheeseburger, consider this: When you gain a lot of weight, your skin has to stretch to accommodate your new girth. Lose the weight and you'll be left with flabby, saggy skin. If your skin isn't elastic enough to bounce back, you may have to resort to surgery to tighten it up. A healthy varied diet is important in maintaining healthy skin. Theres no one specific food that is good for our skin, but eating a good mix of healthy stuff is the first step.Make a habit to eat balance of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, as well as dairy and lean protein foods

Bad Sleep

Late Night Sleep

More than a quarter of us aren't getting the eight to 10 hours of sleep we need nightly, and our exhaustion is as obvious as the pallor of our skin and the bags under our eyes.Your skin rejuvenates while you're sleeping. And lack of sleep makes your face look dull and can exaggerate the appearance of dark circles.Always have a Good Night sleep of atleast 8-10 hours a day.

Ignoring Warning Signs

Ignoring Warning Signs

A changing mole is one of the clearest signs of skin cancer. Spotting it early gives your doctor a chance to treat it before it has time to spread. For that you must have to look after your skin completely?If you spot anything, or if you've got a personal or family history of skin cancer, immediately consult your dermatologist and let him do complete care of your skin.Once a month, you should be checking your skin from top to bottom, front to back in a full-length mirror.
