It’s the season for travel. Summer wouldn’t be the same without vacation, but introducing a new environment to your skin is not always the best thing for acne-prone complexions. Here, Clear Clinic’s tips on how to stay acne-free even when you’re away from home:
- Airplanes air can be extremely drying. When you suffer from acne, it’s very important to make sure the skin is hydrated. Excessive dryness can lead to more breakouts. Drink a lot of water and keep your moisturizer in your carry-on bag so you can apply it mid-flight.
- Just because you’re on holiday doesn’t mean it’s ok to take a vacation from your skin care regimen. It’s important to wash your face twice a day and apply the topical acne treatments prescribed to you.
- Find travel-friendly cases for your cleanser and moisturizer if the sizes you own are too big to take on the flight.
- Wear sunscreen! The sun can make acne breakouts worse. It’s urban legend that a suntan will help clear up breakouts.
