  • Skipping Sunscreen: Failing to wear sunscreen daily accelerates premature aging and increases the risk of skin cancer. Skin Cancer Foundation
  • Inconsistent Routine: Results may take time, and switching products frequently may lead to skin irritation. American Academy of Dermatology
  • Picking and Squeezing: Popping pimples can cause scarring and worsen acne. Mayo Clinic
