Breakouts are caused when pores are clogged by dirt, sweat and dead skin cells. This allows bacteria to grow, causing inflammation of the skin that we see as blackheads or whiteheads. Here are some great tips to keeping your skin clear and clean during summer time, and fight those nasty breakouts:
- Keep Clean Skin- keeping your skin free from dirt and your pores unclogged is the first step to take in order to avoid summer breakouts. Clean you skin morning and evening with a deep cleanser and then wipe your skin with toner to remove any deep impurities left on the surface of the skin. You can use the toner on your neck and upper chest if needed. Also, make sure to chose a cleanser that will not dry out your skin- your skin needs its natural moisture in order the stay balanced.
- Discover Sulfur- Sulfur possesses antibacterial, antifungal and keratolytic properties. These properties help kill acne causing bacteria, removing dead skin cells from the epidermis and unclogging pores. The results are pores free from debris, therefore bacteria has no source to grow on. Use skincare products which contain sulfur to keep your skin clear and free from acne. Try Jericho Acne Soap, which contains sulfur from the Dead Sea or try Jericho Sulfur Soap, for more serious acne. These soaps are also suitable to use in the shower in case of body acne.
- Mask Up- daily cleansing is very important to your skincare routine, yet a deeper cleaning once to two times a week is highly recommended to deep clean your skin and open up the pores. Use a facial mask once to twice a week to refresh your skin, extract impurities and restore the skin's natural balance. Try the unique Jericho Facial Sauna Mask for normal to dry skin, or the Peel-Off Mineral Mask for oily skin.
- For-go Your Make-up- summer time is not the best time for heavy makeup. If you can't take a vacation from your make-up, use it only on the areas you must, like under the eyes and the nose. Try a lighter, water based make-up that will not clog the pores, and will accumulate as little dirt as possible.
