Some people say summer is our skin’s worst enemy. Others agree there are always efficient solutions to undertake when battling the negative skin effects every season brings along.
The reasons why summer is considered a “bad” season when it comes to your skin’s health, is due to the fact there are many people, especially females that even though they might have a relatively blemish-free skin throughout the year when the hot season comes in, everything suddenly changes.
Risen temperatures, humidity and sun exposure are all strong factors that might indicate possible skin disorders especially on people that have a sensitive or oily skin type.
Here are the best ways to treat skin issues this summer and keep a healthy-looking skin even during the hottest days…
Don’t forget to clean and exfoliate
Remember just one thing before you doubt this tip: pimples and every other mark that suddenly appears on your skin are dead cells that when mixing with your skin’s sebum and clog up your skin pores.
These clogged pores become the perfect place for bacteria to grow within it. That is why, next time you feel too tired or just lazy to clean and exfoliate your skin that has stayed out all day long, just think about the process you’re letting your skin have and the consequences.
When cleaning, you block the dirt and bacteria to build up while exfoliating gets rid of the dead skin that is already on your face (and not only..)
Never forget your sunscreen
Did you know that sun exposure is one of the biggest factors that cause dead skin cells? And we all no dead skin cells are a big NO when it comes to acne. But don’t worry, you can control this factor by simply not forgetting to apply a good sunscreen on your face even on the days you think the sun is not too strong to have enough effect. Remember, it is always there to make the damage.
Water, the skin’s oldest best friend
Especially during the summer days when we tend to seat a lot throughout the day. Constant loss of moisture levels in your skin not only feels dry and itchy but also when leaving the skin without enough hydration, it starts to produce oils so it can keep itself moisturized.
And you know what excess skin oil means? More acne and pimples!
You don’t have always keep a glass or bottle of water with you during the day. Just keep track of the fluids you take in your body by including soups, fruits, and salads you eat as well.
