5 clear skin tips for a humid day in the city
In this article we give you 5 essential clear skin tips for humid city weather to avoid clogged pores and improve your skin naturally.
1. Pack your essentials & keep it clean
High humidity in combination with city pollution causes clogged pores and may contribute to the formation of acne. So prepare your bag and bring your cleanser, moisturiser and tissues. We recommend to wash/clean your face properly after a day at work (rather than just using wipes) and then reapply makeup if necessary. The light version of our favourite blue cream – Dr Spiller Collagen Aqua Plus – is perfect for the humid Sydney summer weather. Also, keep your hands away from your face!
2. Reduce shine
It is always best to keep your skincare regime simple with natural products, and steer clear of mineral oil makeup with binders and fillers that block the pores. To avoid the face-melting effect of foundations and heavier makeup in combination with humidity, choose a true mineral makeup such as the Jane Mineral makeup that allows the skin to breath. If possible, give your skin a break and avoid makeup altogether.
3. Keep your look natural
Go light on the makeup. Save the smoky eye and powder eye shadow and opt for waterproof mascara – if you must use one. Remember that most foundations, tinted moisturiser, primers will add to blocked pores.
4. The sun isn’t shining…
But even on a cloudy, rainy day you get UVA/UVB damage, so wear sun protection. UVA/UVB damage leads to premature wrinkles, collagen breakdown, and brown spots…
5. Drink plenty of water
It’s one of the best and cheapest ways to get clear, healthy and flawless skin, no matter the weather!
Bonus hair tip:
Fuzzy texture is best avoided by using a small amount of light mouse or light serum all over the hair (avoiding the roots). Just remember to keep your locks away from your face! Hair styling products can be extremely oily and may lead to blockage of pores and inflammation in the skin, causing acne.
