Summer is a beautiful time! However, hot and humid weather increase oil production from sebaceous glands. Heat, humidity, sweat, extra oil -- all of these can make acne worse. When sebum increase, it causes the formation of comedones. Clogged pores promote the way proliferation of bacteria which are responsible for the inflammation and pimples. You can change your skin care routine to help to control acne-prone skin with are few summer skin care tips:
Wash your face morning and night with a gentle cleanser that won’t dry out or irritate your skin. Avoid using regular soap. Cleansing your face too often can break down the skin's protective barrier, causing excessive dryness and irritation, and ultimately worsen breakouts.
Rub an ice cube on the face if you have inflamed acne. It reduces inflammation.
Limit to use of scrubs no more than twice a week. Excessive use of scrubs leads to skin irritation.
Use a water-based non-comedogenic moisturizer for skin hydration without leaving more oils on the surface. Dehydrated skin can increase the production of sebum, which makes acne worse. Acne treatments can dry out your skin, and you will want moisturizing to counteract that. A good, oil-free moisturizer won't trigger breakouts, but will help ease dryness, flakiness, and peeling.

Using sunscreen with a sun protection factor 30 is essential for people who use acne medication, which increases skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Sunscreen prevents more than just sunburn; it reduces your chance of developing premature lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and skin cancer.
