During summer the water loss is increased as body tries to keep itself cool. The water loss is rapid due to humid temperatures so it is very important to consume fluids regularly in order to keep your skin hydrated. Even though enough fluid might be consumed, there might be times when the fluid loss is very rapid. Once this occurs the sebum is not properly cleansed from the skin resulting in blocking or clogging of the pores present in the skin. This over time results in acne formation. So in summer it is very important that you regularly cleanse your skin.
A good skin care regimen for summer includes:
1. Cleansing the face regularly with vegetable soaps or natural cleansers.
2. Hydrating your skin with alcohol free toner. If not you can fill a clean bottle with filtered water and spray it on your face more often so that the skin is hydrated and also the excess sebum is washed away.
3. Exfoliation of skin should be done maximum twice a week.
4. It is important to wear light moisturizers. Remember using petroleum based moisturizers only results in clogging of the pores and results in acne.
