Summer is here, and we're letting the good times roll. But, while we're enjoying our long summer days, it's hard to avoid a shiny face at all times. The temperatures are up, which means more humidity, and with humidity comes an increase in oil production. While you may not be able to fight against the excess oil at all times were sharing some tips to keep the oily summer skin from making an appearance.
Tip #1 – Cleanse your face properly
Cleansing your skin often is key to keeping oil production down. First, you want to be sure you're cleaning out your pores from any buildup. The Invigorate Face Wash is a great way to start and end the day, but if you're already experiencing oily skin, it's not a bad idea to use the Acne control face wash to keep your skin on the matte side. The face wash contains salicylic acid, which helps break down oil in the pores but isn't over-drying.
Tip #2 – Don’t skip the SPF
Believe it or not, applying a small amount of sunscreen to your face can help control and shine. No more than a teaspoon size is needed, and since sunscreen should be worn daily, we'll benefit from the doubt and assume you're already protected and got this step covered.
Tip #3 – Exfoliate
Regular routine exfoliating is beneficial to keeping oil production down. In the summer, it is highly recommended, especially if you have oily skin. The Revitalize Face Scrub contains activated charcoal that draws bacteria and dirt from your skin, and we like to think of it as the healing skincare champ and are optimistic it will quickly become a favorite.
Tip #4 – Hydrate
As oily as your skin looks and feels, it's never a good idea to stop moisturizing your face. To keep your skin balanced, you must moisturize to keep it hydrated. Protecting your face with the Cobalt Face Moisturizer with SPF 30 is the perfect way to fight the summer sun and keep your skin hydrated.
You want to be out enjoying the day, not worrying about oily skin. As long as you follow the tips mentioned above, you'll be on your way to a less oily complexion. Remember to cleanse your face correctly, don't skip the SPF, exfoliate regularly, and keep your skin hydrated. It's as simple as that.
