Imperfections are less apparent during the summer, is the sun a good cure?
Did You Know?
Since the sun dries out pimples and improves the sebum’s fluidity, the skin seems cleaner. However, UV rays can cause skin to thicken and the sebum’s outlet canal becomes thinner, so the sebum accumulates in the deeper layers of the skin.
When you return from vacation, the accumulated sebum comes back to the skin’s surface and creates new imperfections, often more than before – it’s what we call the “rebound effect”.
What To Do:
During the summer, don’t change your habits and go on caring for your skin. Continue gently cleansing your skin morning and night and applying your soothing and regulating skin care product.
You must also control the amount of sun exposure – avoid tanning too quickly, expose yourself progressively after applying a sunscreen lotion with an SPF of at least 30. If you’re being treated by a dermatologist for acne, avoid sun exposure altogether.
