How to Treat Acne Now So That it Won’t be Back This Fall

If you live in an area of the world that experiences seasonal changes, you probably know this situation all too well: you find a nice solution to help keep your acne symptoms at bay, and just as you finally start to notice results, the weather changes and you have to start all over again with some entirely new routine! And the more severe the acne, the worse it can be.

While treating acne can come with its own source of headaches, it doesn’t have to be a devastating ordeal each time the climates change. By taking just a few preventative measures, you can treat your skin NOW, and set yourself up for a flawless fall face at the same time! Here are just a few of our favorite tips to help take your summer acne treatment to fall without a hitch!

Protect Your Skin

When the cool, dry autumn air hits the surface of your skin, you might notice a drying effect in a matter of weeks, or even days. It is always suggested to stay on top of your moisturizing game in the cooler months, and the best way to make the seasonal transition as simple as possible is to get an early start with some SPF! Overexposure to sun can damage the skin and foster premature aging or even skin cancer, but it will also cause additional irritation and even inflammation ,which can exasperate breakouts. Sunscreen works to create a protective layer on the surface of the skin, which not only keeps harmful UV rays from burning your complexion, but also works to trap moisture, which can prevent fine line, wrinkles, and skin cancer, in addition to acne.

Hydrate Your Skin: Inside Out.

Much like how the surface of your skin needs some help staying moist and protected with sunscreen and moisturizer, the inside of your body requires a cool drink as well to keep that complexion hydrated from within. Drinking between 8-10 glasses of water per day is what’s recommended, but if you can’t seem to guzzle nearly a gallon a day, try adding some seasonal fruits and veggies to your diet, like apples, strawberries, grapes, or cucumbers. This quick snack can go a long way in keeping your skin and pores moisturized, leaving less of a scramble to stay hydrated when the skin really needs it - fall. And again, don’t forget that external moisturizer as well.

Banish the Dead Skin: Exfoliate

Dead skin cells mixed with sebum are the major clogging factor in the process of developing acne breakouts.Exfoliating dry, dead skin cells is essential in keeping skin acne-free in the fall. The symptom of acne we recognize as breakouts usually starts when a hormonal imbalance triggers the sebaceous glands to produce too much sebum, the oily substance created to hydrate the skin. Sometimes this excess of oil can travel through the pores with no problem, but when it meets with dirt and debris, such as dead skin cells, bacteria can form, which usually results in blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, or other acne symptoms. Because we sweat so much more in the summer months, and our skin is, hopefully, remaining covered in sunscreen most of the time, treating the surface with a gentle exfoliation can make for a smooth transition when the dry fall air starts to dry skin up. Whether you find a grainy scrub or a gentle gel works best, find what suits you and take just a couple extra minutes a couple times a week to wash away that sticky summer sweat!

Respect Your Skin:Become makeup savvy.

Hot and oily versus cool and dry - these two differing climates can call for some very different makeup formulas, depending on your skin type, so be sure to make the appropriate adjustments as needed! Don’t worry, this won’t require a major makeup overhaul, just switching up the cakey foundation with a BB or CC cream, or tinted moisturizer will do the trick. If you have some left over after the warm weather fades, you don’t have to toss it - simply wear a light layer under your fall foundation to build up your look!

Break the Acne Cycle

If your acne flares up with every seasonal change, finding new soaps, scrubs and makeup will go a long way in giving you flawless skin, but these tricks will only take you so far. For real results, you’ll do best to treat the problem at its source, which is exactly what AcnEase does.
