The summer months can wreak havoc on our skin complexion. The warm weather can influence flare-ups, inflammation, and clogged pores. In addition, sweat can exacerbate breakouts. Hair follicles clog, and as a result, there is an overgrowth of bacteria. Dirt and debris build-up are most common during the summer months, making summer one of the harshest seasons for our skin.
Here are some tips to prevent summer break-outs.
Exfoliate and Tone
Remove dead skin cells to allow your skin to reproduce faster. Using an exfoliant such as HeadShed Scrub that contains fine ground walnut shells, you can detoxify and soothe the skin simultaneously.
Use Light SPF Moisturizers
Use an SPF that will allow your pores to breathe. Using a light SPF won’t clog your pores. If you are spending most of your summer in the sun, make sure to apply your sunscreen every couple of hours to avoid damaging UV rays. In the mildest form, sunburn can create a reddening of the skin called erythema, in the harshest form, sunburn can cause the skin to blister and peel. HeadLube SPF 50 is Oxybenzone and Octinoxate free UV protector that is made specifically to keep your scalp healthy and protected. The unique formula does not leave any greasy residue and can be applied multiple times a day.
Keep clean and wash your skin multiple times of the day. Environment factors such as sweat and sun pollution can cause dirt to build up and send your oil glands into a frenzy. Keeping your skin refreshed and clean increases your epidermal turnover.
Use the Correct Treatment
Making sure you use the right products that react well with your irritated (and the sun) is of chief importance: You don’t want to make your skin more unbalanced or extra oily during the summer months. Choose products that have anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. ClearHead Bump Treatment features Green Tea Extract and Zinc PCA which naturally inhibits oiliness.
