Summer Acne Tips You Can't Live Without

Get Your Acne Under Control This Summer

During the summer months, it is common to be much more active than we are used to and perspiration definitely increases during the summer months. Unfortunately, so does acne. If you want to avoid acne flareups during the summer months, read on...

Wipe It Away

This summer one of the best things you can do for your face is to carry around moistened paper towels or washcloths, especially if you have acne. When you’re out and about one of the best things you can do is to wipe off the sweat, oil, and dirt that accumulate on your face. This can help keep your acne under control.

There are a number of papers available for sale in the beauty department of most drug and department stores. Simply use these blotting papers to wipe away the excess oil and avoid the clogged pores so often associated with summer sweat.

Watch Those Products

During the summer months watch what hair products you use and which sunblocks you put on. If you're going to be sweating a lot the hair products will end up on your face and in your pores. If you use an oil-based SPF product, that's going to cause acne flare ups too. Keep hairspray and gel to a minimum and use acne-friendly SPF protection.

Don't Over Wash

Sometimes we are tempted to over-wash our faces during the summer months to get rid of the oil and sweat we can feel building up. It’s important not to over wash your face, or you can end up aggravating your acne.

Summertime definitely presents some problems for acne sufferers, but if you pay particular attention to your skin during the summer months and take measures to prevent clogged pores, you can reduce your summer breakouts significantly.
