SkinCare Physicians’ Dr. Jeffrey Dover shares two skin sins you should avoid committing in an article published by LongivityLIVE. Skimp on Sunscreen Jeffrey Dover, associate clinical professor of dermatology at Yale University School of Medicine and director of Skincare Physicians in Chestnut Hill says most people under-apply by one-fourth.

Smoking If the risk of lung cancer, emphysema, heart disease, and stroke aren’t enough to scare you off cigarettes, how about all those wrinkles you’ll get? Study after study shows just how extensively smoking ages the skin. “It does a lot of what the sun does. It just does it inside (the body) instead of outside,” Dover says. “It makes the skin weak, tired, and listless looking.” Read the full article.
