Bye Bye Summer Acne!

Summer acne is the worst! At least in the winter time we have sweaters, scarves, beanies, etc. to help cover it up and we can wear a lot of product on our skin to hide flaws without make-up melting away.  To keep summer acne at bay make sure you use less product on your face.  Using as much make-up as you do in the winter is a big no-no because when you're outside the heat from the sun opens your pores and your make-up will clog your pores causing blackheads and acne.

Another thing you can do to prevent acne on your face is washing your sunglasses/eyeglasses and cell phone frequently.  I wear my sunglasses everyday in the summer to protect my eyes and prevent those "11 lines" on the top of my nose between my eyes.  My sunglasses at the end of the day usually have some make-up on the inside of them and I make sure to take care of that and the oil and dirt on my phone with rubbing alcohol or hand wipes.  If you notice that you are getting acne where your sunglasses usually are or on the side of your face where you use your cellphone, chances are you will see a huge difference when you start cleaning these things.

One last tip: hands off your face! The only time you should touch your face is when your hands are clean and you are applying skin care and make-up.  Other than that don't touch your face because of the bacteria, dirt, and oils from your fingertips.  We are always touching elevator buttons, gasoline pumps, our credit cards, door handles and all these things are crawling with disgusting germs.  Don't transfer germs from your hands to your face.

Good luck being acne free this summer!

take care of them so they don't clog your pores
