Anyways, summer just hit Melbourne and today was a scorching 40 degrees in the city. This is a crucial time to keep my skin clear from acne as I will be spending a lot of time at the beach, outdoor and I want my skin to look clear without make up! My skin tends to be a more oily at this time of the year and definitely a challenge to maintain it clear! Read more with the link below where I share my current skin routine for the summer!image imageThe following is my current skin routine for the warm weather in melbourne now!

1) Wash my skin with a good cleanser that cleans out the oil and dirt from my skin and still gentle enough. Clearasil PerfectaWash is a great cleanser for acne-prone skin type as well as gentle enough for your skin for daily use! After using it, my skin feels refreshed and at the same time I don’t feel like my skin is stripped off its natural moisture from the cleanser!

2) I used to over-wash my skin because of the hot weather. DO NOT wash your skin more than 2-3 times a day. In my case, it only produces more oil because my skin would feel too dry after numerous washes. You can try blotting your face with oil blotting paper. I prefer to lightly tap my skin with tissue to remove excess oil if my skin feels too oily!

3) Use sunscreen everyday! It is so important to use sunscreen especially during this time of the year where the UV rays are so strong. UV rays is one of the main cause of aging and using sunscreen can slow down the aging process! Sunspots and wrinkles can appear after prolonged sun ray exposure. Remember to wear shades as well to protect your eyes and your under eye area!

4) I’ve added retinol to part of my night routine as it helps with skin rejuvenation and who doesn’t like to have glowy skin!

5) Always moisturise! I use a lightweight hydration gel that is so good for my oily-combination skin type.

6) Use a clay mask once in a week or so. It helps removing the excess oil and dirt from the skin. Sometimes my skin would feel so dry from the clay mask, in that case I apply a hydration mask to bring it back to normal! Happy and clean :)
