Summer Bacne Tips
1. Shower Daily
In the winter it can be easy (and healthy for your skin) to not shower every day. But in the summer it becomes crucial for smell and keeping your pores clean. Bonus Tip: consider using a non-scented emollient to avoid irritations caused by some ingredients.
2. Use a toner with SALYCYLIC
Using a product with salicylic acid can help lightly exfoliate your skin and keep your pores clean. Just make sure it also has hydrating principles. Shameless plug, Vanish was designed to be the perfect spray to tackle acne *anywhere* it may pop up.
3. Wear Breathable Clothing
We'll keep this simple: cotton. Cotten helps absorb moisture and sweat and leaves your body feeling cool. Just make sure t change your shirt sometimes twice daily, and especially after that shower you take in Tip #1.
4. Avoid Backpacks
Backpacks are a top culprit of back sweat because they literally stop your pores from breathing. Consider a cool messenger bag for longer walks, and if you can't avoid it, try taking it off from time to time.
5. Drink Water
When you sweat you lose water, and replenishing your fluids lets your sweat keep flowing and your pores clean. This is especially true if you're enjoying summer beverages with alcohol.
