Top 5 tips to avoid acne this summer


Top 5 tips to avoid acne this summer
Summer is here and often the warmer weather means breakouts, not just for teenagers but adults as well.

“Many people think pimples are just for teens, but warmer weather and stress around Christmas often leads to many adults breaking out again”, said Judy Cheung-Wood, Managing Director, SkinB5.

Here she shares her top 5 tips to avoid getting pimples this summer:

  • Refresh your skin with watermelon rind – eat the flesh and simply rub your face with the rind
  • Use a feather light sunscreen that does not block pores
  • Go to the beach and have a dip in the ocean. Salt water helps control bacteria growth on the skin
  • As soon as you feel that a pimple is coming on, apply diluted tea tree oil to the baby pimple (eg. 5 mL tea tree oil and 95 mL water), and you must refrain from squeezing it!
  • Take SkinB5 oral supplements daily to control skin oil production which is particularly important during summer when hot weather exacabates skin congestion

“If women go on holidays, I would recommend they give their skin a holiday also and take a break from foundation to let their skin breathe and give it a chance to regain its natural lustre”, Cheung-Wood adds.
