Summer Breakouts? Here's How To Adjust Your Skincare Routine

Summer Breakouts? Here's How To Adjust Your Skincare Routine

Ah, summer—the season of sunshine, beach trips, and unfortunately, breakouts. As the temperatures rise and humidity levels soar, many of us find ourselves battling pesky summer breakouts that seem to pop up out of nowhere.

The good news is with a few tweaks to your skincare routine and the right products in your arsenal, you can help keep those summer breakouts at bay and enjoy clearer, glowier skin all season long.

What causes acne in the summer?

Increased sweat and oil production in the summer months can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Add to that the heavy use of sunscreen, and you've got a recipe for potential acne flare-ups. Not to mention heat and humidity can exacerbate existing skin issues, making them more difficult to manage.

The best skincare routine for managing summer breakouts

1. Double cleanse:

The most important step in any skincare routine is cleansing, and double cleansing ensures that you've thoroughly washed it. This skincare technique involves using an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser to thoroughly remove dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin.

Best products for double cleansing:

Wash Oil Cleanser

This water-based cleanser uses clarifying botanicals and clays to wash away surface impurities and balance oil production.


2. Exfoliate:

Exfoliating is especially important during the summer months when dead skin cells can accumulate more quickly due to increased sweat and oil production. However, it's essential to choose a gentle exfoliator that won't irritate or damage the skin.

Best products for gentle exfoliation:

Silk Sea Sponge

3. Tone:

Face toners help remove dirt, makeup, and bacteria that your cleanser may have left behind. Combine this step with double cleansing and a once-to-three-times-a-week exfoliation for super clean skin.

Best products for toning & refreshing your skin:

4. Treat & target:

When it comes to treating summer breakouts, spot treatments are your best friend. Simply apply a small amount directly to any active breakouts before bed, and wake up to clearer, calmer skin in the morning.
