The long awaited summer heat and humidity can cause your sebaceous glands, which produce hydrating oils for the skin, to go into overdrive. Sweat mixed with excessive oil, as well as dirt and bacteria on the skin’s surface clogs pores, aggravates skin and leads to breakouts. The best way to prevent these is a clean face, free of an accumulation of oil, dead skin cells and dirt on/in the pores. Summer sees the hight of Gentleman’s social activities, and no one wants to spend half the morning worrying about breakouts and attempting to cover them up. Keeping breakouts at bay is easier done then you may think. With the right routine you can stay fresh faced even in this heat.
Regularly washing your face with a deep cleansing wash will help to remove any impurities from within the skin. Malin+Goetz grapefruit face cleanser is a great wash for preventing summer breakouts- known to be one the most gentle face washes on the market, ideal for those with sensitive skin or those that have recently been exposed to the sun. The grapefruit component in this wash is particularly useful at this time of year as it prevents breakouts.
Your skin may appear constantly moist due to sweat and excessive oils being produced, but too much of these substances will clog your pores. You can have oily skin and still lack water for instance. The summer sun can both dehydrate and damage the skin, without hydration the skin will suffer from breakouts and premature ageing, especially with the pores becoming filled with sweat and oils that can contain bacteria. The Malin+Goetz SPF moisturiser rehydrates and balances all skin types providing total protection for the summer.
