Find out how to prevent your skin from breaking out as the weather changes.

Seasonal Skin Breakouts

If the season dictates the condition of your skin, then you may be a victim of seasonal acne. While in our books, having seasonal acne is still a better option than having all-year-round acne; seasonal breakouts are indeed the stuff of nightmares.

Seasonal zits are as unpredictable as the weather, and they seemingly come and go as they please. Like clockwork, skin seems to change along with the colour of the leaves when autumn strikes. As we all know, when season’s change, and when the weather is warm one day and cold the next, it can wreak havoc on our skin.

It’s no shock our skin is left confused, unbalanced, and prone to blemishes. When the temperatures drop, it’s almost too hot for jeans and sweaters but too cold for shorts and a T-shirt. Meaning your odds of accidentally overdressing, overheating, and irritating your skin are higher. Eeek! Here come the seasonal zits!

If this sounds familiar, here are our 3 rules to busting breakouts.

1) Exfoliate regularly

This opens the way for moisturising products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy. Treat yourself to a flawless, glowing complexion that feels and looks refreshed, renewed and super soft in just 30 seconds with this exclusive high performance triple action exfoliator from Genie.

2) Add a gentle cleanser back into your shower line up

Used by many to remove make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and other types of pollutants from the skin of the face. skinSense’s Hydranet Cleansing Foam cleanses the skin of impurities and avoids harming the delicate skin surface while leaving skin feeling clean and refreshed. In a larger sized 200ml pump, it’s super for easy application and lasts for quite some time!

3) As a general rule of thumb, opt for a facial oil

Oils may be one of the skincare products you haven’t touched yet. Don’t let the idea of applying oil to your skin keep you from trying it out for yourself. Its purposes stretch from sealing in moisture to giving skin a healthy envious glow. While anyone, even those with oily skin, can benefit from A’kin’s Certified Organic Rosehip oil. It helps boost the healing process of our beloved seasonal zits along with keeping our skin moisturised and hydrated when the seasons change.
