Summer is just around the corner, and we can’t keep calm. Lazing by the pool, wearing larger than life hats, partaking in adventure sports at the beach… there’s just so much fun to look forward to. But the one thing we hate about the hotter months is the heat boils and pimples that roll in. No matter how hard we try, the pesky little pimples always make their way out as the days get warmer. So, we at BeBe are making it our mission to help you achieve clear and flawless skin this season. Here are four skincare tips to prevent acne outbreaks in summer.
- 01. Use mild cleansers
- 02. Opt for lightweight gel moisturisers
- 03. Use clay masks
- 04. Use detoxing sheet masks
01. Use mild cleansers
The urge to use drying cleansers in summers is real. The heat and sweat tend to irritate us and a lot of us just want to get rid of it with strong face washes. But that’s not the way to go. Your skin is already dealing with a lot when the weather shifts so the best thing to do is use a mild face wash. Try the Simple Daily Skin Detox Purifying Facial Wash this summer. It reaches deep within to clean out your pores thoroughly and banishes excess shine.
02. Opt for lightweight gel moisturisers
Summer or winter, moisturiser is an absolute must, even for oily skin peeps! But heavy or creamy winter moisturisers will clog your pores and only worsen your breakouts. Instead, pick a lightweight gel-based moisturiser for the summers. The POND'S Super Light Gel Oil Free Moisturiser is our all-time favourite. It is formulated with vitamin E and hyaluronic acid that hydrates, moisturises and keeps the skin soft all day. You don’t have to worry about looking like a disco ball with this as your daily moisturiser.
03. Use clay masks
Clay masks are a must in summers. Your skin tends to get oilier and sweater, which attracts more dust particles on your skin. This not only clogs your pores and causes pimples but also makes your skin look extremely dull and tired. Try a purifying clay mask like the Lakmé 9to5 Vitamin C Clay Mask which cleanses and brightens skin in one. The bentonite and kaolin clay in the formula sucks out all the gunk from within, and the vitamin C in it brightens the complexion.
04. Use detoxing sheet masks
A sheet mask is never a bad idea. It provides relaxation that goes beyond regular skincare. It’s the only product that lets you sit back and chill while it works like a miracle. But, with everyone’s skin getting greasier in summers, it’s important to pick a sheet mask with the right ingredients. Our go-to is the POND’S Detoxing Sheet Mask With Vitamin B6 100% Bamboo Charcoal. The activated charcoal in the formula helps clean out pores and mattify skin, keeping it clean and pimple-free. It’s also infused with vitamin E to provide thorough nourishment to keep your skin feeling soft and plump.
