Skincare Tips for Hot Weather

Major rules for healthy skincare in hot weather

    Hot conditions in most situations means Sun and SUN means the need to protect your skin with the products providing at least 25 SPF. This applies to every complexion color and type. Oily and dry, light and dark, young and old. Look for non-comedogenic products without oils, possibly broad spectrum and sustainable when you sweat or swim.
    If the hot weather is combined with humidity that is below 50% this moderate water content in the air can be a good thing for keeping your skin soft and hydrated. But when the water in the air is 50 percent or more, it can leave your complexion sweaty, shiny, and can even lead to breakouts. You may be surprised to learn that you do not actually perspire much more when the humidity is high, but that sweat simply stays on your skin longer because it does not evaporate into the air as quickly. When sweat hangs around on your skin, it can result in blocked pores. In addition, humid air can stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum, not only giving skin unwelcomed shine but also fostering more frequent breakouts.
    Start and End Each Day with a Cleanser. Cleanse morning and night to remove makeup, dirt and sweat and an excess oil. Use water based non comedogenic cleansers. Do NOT over-dry your skin with harsh ingredients. Your skin is not only the largest organ in your body; it is also a very smart organ . If the skin” thinks” it is being overdried it will actually respond with producing more sebum, not less.
    Regularly exfoliating your skin helps to remove dead skin cells, prevents the mixing of those cells with sebum and clogging the pores Exfoliating also makes it easier for moisturizer to penetrate the skin. Be sure to exfoliate gently and adjust your exfoliation schedule to your skin's unique needs so you don't irritate it. Also remember. DO NOT exfoliate if you plan going out in the sun even if you plan to wear the sun protection.
    Drink lots of water; eat water containing foods like watermelon or pineapple.
