Summer brings in bright sunny days and dull-sticky skin. The season takes a toll on our skin in various ways. Especially for acne-prone skin, this is a sensitive time. Increased sweating and clogged pores lead to an increase in comedones and acne. But with, few changes in skincare and hygiene can tackle this situation.
1. Keep your skin clean
Use a gel-based or foaming cleanser to cleanse the skin twice a day thoroughly. You can use FCL Alpha Beta Cleanser. It is a gentle soap-free gel cleanser that quickly dissolves excess oil, skin impurities, and makeup that can clog skin pores.
You can also use FCL C Scape cleanser to gently exfoliate the skin, removing the dead cells and unclog the skin pores. And also restores the radiance and vitality in dull, environmentally damaged skin.
2. Avoid over-exfoliating
First of all, one should always avoid physical scrubbing as it can further irritate the skin. Use chemical exfoliants. And do not exfoliate more than twice a week.
3. Incorporate a toner
Always start your skincare routine with a good toner during summers. FCL Face Toner tightens your pores, reduces excess oil production, and refreshes your skin.
4. Change your moisturiser, don’t avoid it
It’s a common myth to let go of moisturiser during summers, as we all hate that heavy, sticky feeling. Do not avoid but change your rich moisturiser to a gel-based one. And don’t forget your sunscreen ever.
5. Keep your hydrating and heavy makeup back in closet
In summers, avoid heavy, cakey makeup as it can clog your pores and lead to acne. Go for light, matte makeup. Let your skin breathe.
