To get all scientifical for a second, your skin is your biggest and most exposed organ, which should be enough to convince you that taking care of it is pretty essential (read: of the utmost importance). However, way too many people fall short in the skin care arena. You would think taking care of your skin would be easy and revered, yet so many people a) don’t realize what they are doing is wrong or b) don’t even know what they need to be doing to their skin.

That is why we have pulled together what experts are calling The Ultimate Skincare Guide. Okay, so that’s not exactly true, but these top tips on how to look after your epidermis are.

Baz Luhrmann Was Right: Wear Sunscreen
How many times do you need to hear people tell you to wear sunscreen before it will eventually sink in? The sun is great, don’t get us wrong, but too much of a good thing can be bad, which is why you need to be generous with the amount of sunscreen you wear. If you don’t, well, you are playing a pretty dicey game where the jackpot prize will either be skin cancer, actinic keratosis, hyperpigmentation and skin so leathery it sags.

Your Deodorant Is Making Your Skin Irritable

News flash: not all deodorant is born equal. We know this may be a hard pill to swallow, but if you are using just any old deodorant then you may well be using a deodorant that harbors aluminum. Stop doing this right away and go get yourself the best aluminum free deodorant money can by. Why? Simple. Aluminium has been linked to some pretty severe conditions, like breast cancer, bone disorders, kidney issues and even Alzheimer's. Point made.

Why Are You Still Sleeping In Your Makeup?
It doesn’t matter how tired you are, how many glasses of wine you sipped on what time it is when you finally get back from work, it is not okay to sleep in your makeup. Even if it is that nice mineral makeup the lady over the counter sold you. While you are catching up on your sleep, your skin needs to be breathing in air and releasing toxins, which it can’t-do when covered in makeup. So, before your eyes close for the night, grab a wipe and cleanse well.

Moisturizing Really Does Matter
It doesn’t matter where you live, your skin will find a way to dry out if possible, which is bad. It is also why your skin needs humectants, which it can find quite hard to get naturally a lot of the time. If the air outside is dry, then you are in trouble. If you use air conditioning inside, then you are in trouble. If you use the heaters in your car, then you are in trouble. That is why you need to make sure you are
always moisturizing. It doesn’t matter whether you have oily skin or what doctors would call “normal skin”, moisturizer will help keep your skin in balance.
