One of the most
common complaints during the summer months is a sudden surge in breakouts. The
hot, sticky air mixed with that cream foundation you wore all winter creates an
undesirable mixture of gunk on the surface of your skin.
Switching to a lighter moisturizer that contains an SPF such as La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizer ($31.50, www.dermadoctor.com), frequently changing your pillow case and drinking plenty of water can also help to reduce breakouts.
Another issue that arises in the summer is brown spots (also known as sun spots). Sunscreen is the best preventative measure that you can take against them, but once they are there, treatment is the key. Use a product that increases cellular turnover to help lighten spots, like DERMAdoctor Immaculate Correction, a potent skin brightener ($62, www.dermadoctor.com).
Making a few simple changes to your normal skincare routine can help to ensure that your skin remains well-behaved all summer long, and fabulous skin makes for a fabulous summer!
