Top 10 Skin Care Don’ts

  1. Avoid indoor tanning. It can cause skin cancer and premature aging.
  2. Don’t smoke. It can kill you.
  3. Stay away from the sun from 10 AM–4 PM, when its rays are at their most damaging.
  4. Avoid stressful situations. Proper planning prevents anxiety.
  5. Don’t eat junk food.
  6. Avoid processed foods with a high nitrate, sugar and sodium content.
  7. Don’t eat fried foods.
  8. Don’t use soaps, and avoid benzoyl peroxide, hydrogen, retinoic acid and glycolic acid because they reduce the protective barrier of the skin.
  9. Don’t pick and scratch your skin. It removes a barrier and may cause infections.
  10. Don’t overdo anything—remember that less is always more.
