Are you ready for summer? The piping hot months come with heat and dust that can trigger an acne breakout. Don’t let damaged skin ruin this season for you.
Check out some useful information below that can help keep your skin healthy this summer.
What Causes Acne Flare Up During Summer?
Acne is formed when the hair follicles or the skin pores become clogged with sebum (or oil). When this happens, the chance for bacteria to accumulate increases. This results in inflammation which later on can lead to pimples.
During sun exposure, your skin dries up and this results in overproduction of sebum to keep it hydrated. Too much oil, plus dust and dirt can clog the pores and lead to acne.
Below are some of the tips that can help maintain a flawless skin throughout the season.
How to Prevent Summer Acne
Deep clean. It’s important to keep your skin free from dirt and oil. What you need is a mild deep cleanser that you can use with a cleansing brush to reach deeper into your pores.
Use toner. You can keep excess oil off of your skin with a good toner. Use it with toner pads that contain salicylic acid to combat pimple-causing bacteria.
Moisturize. You still want to moisturize even when you have to get rid of excess oil. Choose oil-free water-based moisturizer to keep your skin plump and healthy.
Stay away from A/C. Air conditioning unit can dry up your skin. Keep it from directly blowing into your skin when in the office or at home.
Drink plenty of water. You want to be hydrated inside out. You’ll need lots of water to replenish your body and keep your skin from drying up.
Wear sunscreen. Never go out in the sun without protection. Choose a broad-spectrum and non-comedogenic sunscreen that you can wear all over your body, face, and neck.
Use blotting paper. This will help you do away with excess oil when you’re out and about.
Commit to a healthy diet. While it will not directly affect your acne problem, healthy foods that are low in sugar, high in protein and comes with vitamins A, C, E & D can strengthen your skin to fight sun-induced damage and help repair tissues faster.
Go for a natural look. Use makeup and cosmetics sparingly. A no-makeup makeup is good. And when you wear a makeup for a day, make sure you remove them and wash your face before going to bed.
