13 Everyday Habits That Are Giving You Acne
Your hormones aren't always to blame -- turns out some of these unconscious habits might be causing your acne
Habit No. 13: TanningWe've all heard that the sun dries out your skin and UV rays have an antibacterial element. But baking in the sun is not a sufficient way to clear up acne. And remember, over-drying your skin will cause it to produce more oil, not less.
Also, tanning causes your skin to increase cell production (which means more dead skin cells --- the thing we are trying to avoid). So while you might get a bit clearer at first, tanning will end up giving you more breakouts -- not to mention an increased risk of cancer and extra batch of wrinkles when you're older.
