10 Things You Need to Give Up for Better Skin, According to Dermatologists
After vowing to take the best possible care of my skin—even when certain vices rear their addictive heads—I needed to know more about what common behaviors yielded negative results. Of course, we know you shouldn’t smoke, and you should drink water, wear sunscreen, the works. But what habits, if any, was I blindly partaking in to exacerbate my problems?
“Sun is at its strongest midday,” explains Dr. Rachel Nazarian of Schweiger Dermatology Group, “which means you’re getting more skin damage for every minute you’re outdoors. Try moving your schedule so you’re outdoors early in the morning, or later in the day.” And, of course, daily sunscreen is vital. Nazarian says, “Sun damage is cumulative, so that one-minute walk you take into the office every day adds up. By the end of each year you have hours of sun exposure, and the skin aging to prove it. Do yourself a favor, and take the extra step to put it on. Minimum SPF 30 each morning will keep your skin, and your dermatologist, very happy.”
