As a kid, I remember having these big, watery blisters around my ankle after getting over the chicken pox. Because I was already over being out of school for the previous week or two, I decided to not tell my mom and try to pop all the blisters on my own. Big mistake. Not only was it painful, but I ran the risk of infection. Now that I'm older and a little wiser, I know that there are certain changes with your skin you should never ignore, no matter what.
Though I haven't had any scares like that as an adult, I'm always taking notice to my skin and how it's shaping up. As I've gotten older, I notice that my skin doesn't react to things the same way, nor does it bounce back like it used to either. Certain things that I pay very close attention to are the breakouts that I get on my face as well as the way my skin looks after I've been in the sun for awhile. Sure, it may not be a big deal, but I'd rather be safe than to be sorry — especially when it comes to something as serious as my skin.
If you're not sure what changes you should be keeping an eye on, these seven things are good to jot down.
