There are a couple of things that should not be done by any person who loves to have good looking skin. These things are often not mentioned a lot in discussions because most people only focus on what to do to have good looking skin and not on what not to do to yourself to avoid ruining it. There are many things that you shouldn’t do or expose yourself to if you want to keep your skin looking good. One of them is exposing yourself to too much sunlight. Even though sunlight provides us with the much needed vitamin D, too much of it can be hazardous to your skin and generally your health. So much so that it can lead to serious diseases like skin cancer for those people who do not have a lot of melanin on their skin. If you find the need or find yourself in a situation where you can’t avoid too much sunlight, then it is highly recommended that you use sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun’s ultra violet rays. Other minor situations that you should avoid are the following. If you have oily skin, its best that you avoid products that will clog your pores and are greasy like some soaps. If you have dry skin its best you avoid staying too long in a hot shower for steam is known to remove oil on one’s skin thus living the skin drier.
Another thing that you shouldn’t do to yourself is touch your skin with dirty hands, especially your face. Many people often touch their face with dirty hands unaware that they are transferring bacteria from their hands to their face. And since the skin on somebody’s face is more sensitive than in many other parts of the body, it becomes affected in a negative way. Pimples, blemishes and even boils may appear because of these bacteria. Another thing that you shouldn’t do is use products that have negative side effects on your skin. Even though these products could be genuine and licensed, it’s best to stop using them as soon as you notice their negative side effects. It’s important for many people to understand that there is no such thing as your skin slowly getting used to your new product. Even dermatologists recommend immediate stoppage of the use of products that have allergic and negative reactions on your skin.
Yet another thing that you shouldn’t do is leave your skin dirty after been in polluted environments. Dermatologists recommend that you wash your skin every time you get exposed to pollutants in an environment. More important is you wash your face before going to sleep. This allows the skin to repair itself easily while you sleep. Last but not least on our list of the things you shouldn’t do is giving yourself stress. Dermatologists have come to the realization that our thought process affects our body organs very much. They’ve used the occurrence of heart attacks in people as proof of their hypothesis. Skin been the largest organ in our body is also not spared by our thought process. And so to avoid the implications of stress, it is important that one stays positive in their mindset even when dark clouds are over their heads. These are just some of the things you shouldn’t do to your skin if you want to have your skin looking flawless.
