5 Things Your Dermatologist Wishes You Would Stop Doing


From picking that pimple to using every skin-care product under the sun and spending hours Googling that rash, there are some skin-care habits that do more harm than good. We asked some of our favorite NYC dermatologists what their patients do that drives them mad. Ahead, find out what they had to say. Read, repent and resolve to stop making these cardinal skin-care sins.

While we ordinarily encourage you to wear all the makeup, consider taking it off before you visit your dermatologist. (The same advice applies for nail polish, too.) “These things can make it difficult to properly evaluate the skin, which can cause slight changes or discolorations to be missed,” says Dr. Nava Greenfield of Schweiger Dermatology Group. And don’t bank on taking your makeup off at the office, either. “It’s too time-consuming,” Dr. Greenfield adds.
