Some seemingly innocent moves can do a number on your set. Keep yours looking and feeling healthy by always avoiding these four.
1. Not covering them in sunscreen. If you’re heading outside in a top that exposes your cleavage or upper chest, always slather on some SPF of at least 15, even in winter. Skipping it can lead to wrinkles, pigment changes, and even skin cancer on your boobs.
2. Shaving stray nipple hairs. Running a razor over the sensitive skin on you areola is a quick route to infected follicles. Plucking is more painful, yes, but much safer.
3. Wearing old bras. After one to two years of washing, the typical bra loses elasticity, leading to back and neck pain. If the cups or band on yours sag, junk ‘em.
4. Never feeling them for lumps. Breast cancer is rare in young woman, but it does happen. So once a month in the shower, feel each breast, from your nipple to your armpit, and let your gyno know if you detect anything suspicious.
Do you make an effort to take care of “the girls”?
