In the summer I typically make changes to my skincare routine. With the heat and sweating all the time, I like to wear very minimal makeup during the summer months. So ensuring that my skin is in it’s best condition is important.
During most of my teenage years and most of my early 20’s I dealt with teenage and adult acne. I had whiteheads, blackheads, cystic breakouts, dark spots, back acne; I mean it was the worst. It was my biggest insecurity as a young woman coming into her own.
Fact is, hormonal changes, stress, poor diet, and the lack of water in my diet played a big role in my acne breakouts. But learning proper skincare was very important as well.
I’ve tried tons of over the counter products that dried out my skin and made my face worse. I’ve had prescription medicine that was so strong it burned my skin until it felt raw. It was so frustrating and discouraging.
Finally, I have mastered a regime for my sensitive acne prone skin. I get very few breakouts and generally, my skin is clear.
During the summer it is very important that I stay on top of my skin. With the increased temperatures, sun and sweat there are so many factors to consider in my summer skincare regimen.
I have compiled a list of my favorite skincare products for summer. These are products that I love and use on a daily basis.
