Look Hot in the Heat
In many parts of the country, along with increased temperatures comes increased humidity. The weather has been particularly humid and sticky even in Malibu. Several of my clients with oily skin have been asking how they should be caring for their skin during times of heat and humidity. Here are four tips to keep oily skin in check during the heat:
- Keep the skin clean by using a soapless cleanser to break-up the sebum and debris on the skin. Humidity creates a "petri dish" type of environment allowing bacteria to grow at a faster rate. Soaps dry the skin and leave a layer of dead cells, not allowing the skin to eliminate efficiently. If you are exercising or very active on those humid days,
give your face one extra washing with a mild, soapless wash..
- Masque it!
Apply an exfoliating type masque once a week to remove accumulated dead skin and to allow good elimination from the pores.
- Absorb the oil
If excessive oiliness occurs within hours of washing your face, consider a loose face powder. Avoid pressed powders because they are pressed with oil and the applicators can often spread bacteria.
- Say No Thank you to Moisturizers
during hot & humid weather. Allow your body to work and do not over tax your skin with additional oil. Apply a spray of Rose Water if you want a little skin pick-me-up.
