How To Avoid Oily and Sweaty Skin in the Summertime

Posted by on July 19, 2016

It’s summer time, you’re hot, and your skin and face are so sweaty you can’t take it. We know the feeling. Here are our super simple tips to avoid oily and sweaty skin.

Stay Away From Heavy Makeup: It’s amazing how lighter and breathable your skin will feel just by simply switching to a lighter foundation or even a tinted moisturizer. When the day is just too darn hot, your makeup is bound to smudge and run all over the place. If it’s an oil free tinted moisturizer, even better!

Don’t Forget Your Sunscreen: You should be applying sunscreen every day, not just when you’re heading to the beach. Applying sunscreen can also prevent an oily face. This is because the silicone found in most sunscreens forms a shield over the skin.

Be Careful Not To Over Cleanse Your Face: In the summer months we are more inclined to wash our faces every chance we get, but over cleansing your face can lead to irritation and even breakouts! Cleansing your skin is essential to get rid of any dirt and bacteria accumulated throughout the day, but over-washing can strip your face of its moisture and natural oils that keep your skin hydrated and balanced. Stick to washing your face twice a day. Environ C-Quence cleanser is a luxurious, hydrating cleanser that contains specially selected ingredients effective in cleansing while helping to nourish and hydrate the look of the skin.

Watch What You’re Eating: I’m sure we’ve all experienced that feeling after eating an extremely spicy dish, where your mouth is on fire and you feel like your face is melting. That’s because spicy foods and even some cocktails dilate blood vessels in the body thus making you perspire. Next time you’re dining on a hot summer night, try eating certain vegetables like carrots and spinach which contain Vitamin A and can slow oil production.

Happy summer beautiful readers!
