There's no doubt that we are totally bombarded left and right with information about what is best for our skin. If you're wondering how to minimize acne and breakouts this summer then these tips will help you stay consistent with your natural skin care routine and reduce acne issues. Very often for the best summer skin, less is more!
1. Wash your face no more than twice a day
When the heat is blazing hot it's really hard to resist washing your face over and over especially when you have really oily skin. It simply feels good to wash your face. Unfortunately washing your face over and over can actually dry out the skin and that my dear can cause it to produce even more oil. When you produce more oil guess what? It leads to more acne. That's why less is more folks.
The rule: wash your face in the morning and before going to bed. If you feel really gross and sticky mid-day then the perfect solution is to spritz with Pure Fiji's Coconut Water Hydrating Toning Mist. This nourishing spray instantly hydrates and refreshes your skin with a blend of fresh coconut water, hyaluronic acid and Ngi grass for 24-hour hydration. This mist is infused with soothing cucumber hydrosol, passionflower extract and skin-clarifying witch hazel for the ultimate in skin hydration and comfort. What a treat right?
You're thinking why not just use water to spritz your face? You may not know this but just using plain water can evaporate off of the skin and actually make it drier. That's the opposite effect what you are looking for.
2. Use purifying cleansers
Trying to figure out which cleanser is right for you can be overwhelming. Meet Pure Fiji's Coconut Cleanser with Papaya and Moringa. It's truly the best summer cleanser for keeping your skin clear and radiant. This natural cleanser from the Fiji Islands contains creamy coconut and purifying Moringa oil to gently remove makeup, excess oil and pore-clogging impurities - without stripping the skin of essential moisture. This unique cleanser is boosted with Papaya extracts to brighten skin tone while Moringa and Dilo extracts purify and restore skin to a healthy balance. Sounds amazing right?
3. Use Dilo oil
Acne scars are the unfortunate, long-lasting after-effect of your short lived breakout. So what's the best way to repair them? Dilo oil! Dilo oil is a dry oil that is readily absorbed into the skin and doesn't leave a greasy film - great for warmer weather! It contains a unique essential fatty acid, calophyllic acid, which works to regenerate skin cells, soothe irritation and reduce inflammation. Simply apply Pure Fiji's Anti-Aging Booster Dilo Oil before you apply your regular moisturizer. The result: supercharged healing and repair for your acne scars.
4. Don't skip the moisturizer
You're thinking your skin is already oily so why moisturize? When you don't moisturize it sends a signal that your skin is dry and it may try to compensate for the dryness by overproducing oil. The result is breakouts.
Look for a moisturizer that's non-comedogenic (it means it won't clog your pores) like Pure Fiji's Hydrating Multi Active Day Creme. This day creme contains ingredients like thirst-quenching hyaluronic acid and ngi grass to keep skin glowing with moisture.
One of the best ways to keep your skin clear is to exfoliate. Doing so unclogs the pores which helps prevent breakouts. Having a buildup of dead cells on your face may also make your skin look dull, flaky, or prematurely aged, not good.
The following exfoliation methods may help clear away clogged pores plus dry and dead skin:
How often should you exfoliate? It's recommended to exfoliate skin 2-3 times a week.
6. Limit shellfish
Who doesn't love a good crab roll right? Unfortunately, because they are loaded with iodine they can cause breakouts for some people especially those who already have acne or are prone to breaking out. Limit consumption to once a week.
Most people love the summer season. How can you not? Summer offers; the beach, the pool, barbecues, golf, tennis, festivals, pina coladas, and so much more. While the sun might be fun it does wreak havoc on oily and acneic skin. Keep your summer skin care routine simple and most of all be consistent."
