As the warmer months approach, your pores become oil factory and maximize breakouts. During such a situation, a good dermatologist could come to your rescue. In this article, we have some of the best tips and tricks that will help you to get healthier skin this summer.
Let us get started
1. Keep it simple
As your pores are already generating more oil during summers, it is best to use minimum products on your skin so that your skin is not clogged further. One simple rule is to cleanse, tone and moisturize. If needed, top it off with a non-sticky serum. Rule out your cream cleansers and opt for gentle foaming options. For moisturizer go for gel-based or water-based moisturizers.
2. Get regular facial treatments
Tanning and summers go hand in hand. Hence, the best option is to prevent before the damage happens. For this, you can opt for skin whitening laser treatments which are effective in keeping the skin even-toned and getting rid of the tan. Our skin whitening treatment involves the use of most effective Microdermabrasion peeling procedure. This will lighten the dark spots on your face and rejuvenates the skin giving it a fresh glow.
3. Switch to two-in-one products
As mentioned before, summer is the time to keep things minimal. Be it your clothing or your skincare and makeup. You can start by buying moisturizers that have SPF in it. Or if you wear makeup then opt for foundation or BB creams that have built-in SPF. thicker products can lead to clogging of pores and might result in acne especially if you have oily or acne-prone skin.
4. Invest in vitamin C products
Vitamin C is great for your skin, especially during the summers. It prevents hyperpigmentation and makes the skin firmer. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant which also boosts collagen production. You can invest in a good vitamin C serum and use it in the end of your skincare routine.
5. Exfoliate regularly
By this, we don’t mean exfoliate twice a day, but at least 2-3 times in a week. Especially if you have oily skin, you need to exfoliate to get rid of all the dead skin cells that might clog your pores and result in acne. Using AHA rich products will help in gently exfoliating your skin and also soothe irritated skin.
Apart from these points, make sure that you stay hydrated throughout summer. During summers, your pores become even more enlarged and your skin becomes more prone to acne. Hence, you need to make sure that every product you use is non-comedogenic so that it does not clog your pores. If you have acne-prone skin, you can opt for our treatments which are specifically targeted for acne-prone and blemished skin. Our dermatologists will suggest a skin treatment that will suit your skin type the best.
