Blemish Busters

 

Summer is undoubtedly a time for celebrating our skin. But while we are out having fun in the sun, our skin is fighting a battle against the elements. Salt, heat, and sweat all wreak havoc on our pores; the warmth opens them and the sweat, salt, chlorine, and sand fill them, leaving us with unattractive pimples.

Hot humid climates can exacerbate acne. According to Kathryn Frew, M.D., a dermatologist at JUVA Skin and Laser Center in New York City, “[Hot and humid climates] increase the activity of the oil glands, which allows for more bacteria to colonize the skin.” Frew recommends that patients change their winter skincare regimens from cream-based products to lotions that are lighter for the summertime. She also advises to “use prescription acne medication on a regular basis to prevent outbreaks. Make sure you have products on hand, such as benzoyl peroxide or sulfur-based medications to apply as spot treatment to readily reduce the size of pimples.”

Don’t let your skin get flaky from over-drying acne meds, but don’t let the pimples get the best of you either. Fight back and fend off acne with these tips and summer skincare favorites:
