So today I will be sharing few tips or better to say ways which will help us to stay away from this summer acne stuff 🙂 . I must say that it becomes very important to follow some do’s and don’ts so that our face gets protection from all kinds of Zits. It is needless to add here that we girls always dream of having a wonderful flawless skin which looks healthy and glowing. So without wasting even a single minute, let me quickly guide you 5 Best Ways to Keep Summer Acne at Bay:
Way 1- Wash your face only twice a day: You need to retain the natural moisture and balance of your skin, if you over wash your face then your facial skin starts signalling your oil glands to overproduce oil, thereby making it lot more greasy. So don’t wash your face, more than twice a day.
Way 2- Avoid soap completely: I don’t even remember when was the last time I used soap for washing my face and I feel good about this memory loss..hahaha 😉 as its clinically proven that soaps damage the skin and make it a lot more drier, rougher and extremely permeable to bacteria. So definitely it’s not my cup of tea and you should also avoid it completely.
Way 3- Salicylic Acid is the Key: We keep on using face wash in order to make our face oil free but the truth is that any face wash might not do this. You need to find out a face wash that contains Salicylic Acid as this acid is clinically proven to be of great help in getting rid of whiteheads and blackheads. It is said to be driven from willow bark and helps in reduction of excess sebum and oil production. This acid should be at least one percent in the quantity of face wash to be effective on acnes.
Way 4- Wear Sun block Lotion: Using sun block cream to protect your skin from sun is a must. Sun Rays have UVA and UVB which may in the initial stage look like helping in drying the acnes but in the long run, these rays do immense skin damage and may also worse off the acne marks.
Way 5- Use Moisturizer twice a day: It’s very important to use a good moisturizer twice a day. Some people argue that oily skin does not need much of moisturization as this skin type is already very greasy but that’s not true. No matter, how much oily skin you have, your skin needs to be moisturized with a good moisturizer. Simply look out for those skin moisturizers which are friendly to your skin, free from fragrance, paraben and color so that your skin can breathe easily.
