Sure, we all love the summer. Taking the weather, the clothes, and the beach vacay fantasies into account, it’s an all-around seasonal hit. For those of us that struggle with acne, however, the summer can both be a blessing a curse; the heat and humidity can totally trip up skin and cause more breakouts than usual. To fight back, most decide to change up their skin care routine, which isn’t a bad idea as long as the right choices are made when switching up the regimen. You see ladies, it is v important to take steps to ensure that you all are getting the most out of your routine. After all, with summer fun and sun comes increased exposure to UV rays, as well as an increase in overall sweatiness.

The biggest issue with summertime acne is that the most powerful products available (benzoyl peroxide and retinoids) are already super drying, and the sun only causes more dryness. Moreover, certain prescription medications, like antibiotics and retin-A, may cause the skin to be more sensitive to sunlight. That, in turn, may cause sunburn. So, it seems as though pulling out the big guns to deal with acne only makes matters worse. Not to worry though ladies–as always J4G has found a solution.
