Bad Skin Habits You Need to Break Before Summer

April 15, 2014


Spring has sprung and that means that the dog days of summer are just around the corner. With the hot weather means showing more skin and you want it to look clean and perfect before you show it off in your new swimsuit. To get summer ready skin, there are likely more than a few bad habits you need to break and some new habits you should do instead.

Bad Habit #1: Popping pimples

There’s a reason that dermatologists disapprove of popping pimples. While the desire to take care of unsightly pimples is common, popping a blemish actually does more harm than good. Oils from your fingers can cause an infection and in the long run, you may actually end up scarring your skin.

In order to avoid the temptation of squeezing every unsightly mark and clogged pore in sight, the best thing to do is to get rid of the problem altogether. Rather than taking care of each blemish as it appears, treat your skin using products and tools that eliminate acne. To prevent acne, use a ProSonic Glow exfoliating brush system to get rid of the dirt and bacteria that hide in pores and cause acne. When used in combination with your favorite anti acne cleanser, it can be even more effective at preventing acne. The ProSonic Glow can also be used to on body acne, just switch out the head for effective cleansing. And if you do happen to spot a pimple making it’s unsightly way to the skin’s surface, get rid of it quickly with the Tanda Zap, which uses blue light to destroy the bacteria that causes blemishes.

Bad Habit#2: Skipping sunscreen

Although it may not seem like sunny days are yet upon us, it is important to get in the habit of wearing sunscreen daily, even on cloudy days as sun exposure not only causes painful sunburns but also signs of aging like wrinkles and dark spots as well as cancer. To prevent sun damage and cancer, be sure to use plenty of sunscreen on all parts of the body. Don’t forget the hands and feet. Because these areas are frequently forgotten, they are often the locations for melanoma and also give away a person’s “real age,” thanks to be susceptible to signs of aging.

Look for sunscreen products that have a high SPF and block both UVA and UVB rays. If you plan to be out for a long time or in water, don’t forget to reapply and look for waterproof products. There are also sunscreens available that are suitable for sensitive skin and fragrance free if have allergies.

Bad Habit#3: Skipping Your Neck and Chest

When it comes to good skincare, don’t forget to go below your chin. Signs of aging and sun damage are often most apparent on the neck and chest because people forget to treat them like the rest of the face. These areas have delicate skin and are prone to wrinkles, but using skincare products, combined with a ProSonic Glow exfoliation device can help to prevent and reduce signs of aging. When used with The NutraLuxe Botanical Facial Cleanser, the ProSonic Glow can help to get rid of the damage from summers past and help to prevent future signs of aging.
