Acne Skin Care in the Summer

Man applying skin care creamSummer is a beautiful time of the year. The weather is warm, the days are long, but this great season can also bring about some nasty breakouts and oily skin. This is due to the heat, humidity, sweat, and extra oil that come with the season.

If you’re hoping to enjoy summer to the fullest without the added breakouts, below are some Denver skin care tips specifically for acne in the summer months.

Use a Foaming Cleanser

The heat and humidity can cause your oil glands to work overtime. Though you can’t stop this oil production completely, you can control it. We recommend cleaning your face twice per day with a foaming cleanser to help reduce and manage the amount of oil being produced on your face.

Use an Astringent

Adding astringents to your skin care routine during the summer is a great way to remove excess oil that has built up on your skin’s surface. You can use anything from standard witch hazel to your preferred brand, as long as it feels great on your skin and doesn’t produce any adverse effects. If it burns on stings, try switching to another brand.

Shower after Sweating

Sweat can irritate and produce acne, so try and hit the showers immediately after an intense session at the gym or after a day sweating it out at a music festival. Not only will you feel great after a hot shower, but you’ll be able to wash away all of the dirt and grime sticking to your skin.

Will Acne Facials Help Clear Your Skin?

Just like any treatment, however, the results you receive depends on many different factors. Below are some tips you should know before dishing out the money for a facial acne treatment.

  • You won’t get amazing results with just one treatment. One misconception of this procedure is that one treatment will provide fantastic results. Like any skin treatment, it will take time to start seeing the results you want, which means you will need to undergo multiple acne facials.
  • Your improvement relies on the skill of the esthetician. If your goal is to improve your blemishes, you want to ensure your esthetician specializes in treating the particular skin problem. You want to ensure your treatment is catered to your exact skin concerns and issues so you can see the best results possible in the end.
  • Severe acne may not benefit from a few facials. Mild inflammatory acne can easily be treated at a salon. However, if you are experiencing moderate to severe acne, you want to seek out a specialist in advanced dermatology in Colorado.

At Colorado Skin Care, we provide a variety of treatments for acne of all kinds. If you are looking to finally have clear skin once again, contact us today to schedule an appointment with our skilled dermatologist.
