3 SUMMERTIME SKIN PROBLEMS AND HOW TO AVOID THEM

By Martin Lyne, Founder of woods_ copenhagen

New season, new skincare problems? 

We all strive after that summertime glow. But sometimes, it can look a little more like sweat, shine and sunburns. While we absolutely cannot complain about the warmer temps and spending more time outdoors, there are often some skin-related issues that seem to pop up during this season. 

Here are 3 common skin concerns during summer and how to cope with them.

Acne breakouts

Summertime can mean breakouts where you least expect it. Make sure you always remember to cleanse your face AM & PM as sweat mixed with bacteria and oils on your skin can end up clogging your pores. Daily Foaming Cleanser will effectively (but gently) wash away any dirt and build-up thanks to the natural and mild cleansing actives to keep your skin in the clear all summer.


Oily skin

With increased temperatures comes greater humidity, which can lead to an increased oil production that can make your skin look and feel shiny and greasy. Try swapping out creamy moisturizers with lightweight gel-based ones as Daily Mineral Gel to provide the skin with the hydration it needs without ever feeling greasy.


Sunburn

Sunburns are no joke and they're definitely not fun to deal with. To prevent them from happening, wear sunscreen (obviously) and limit sun exposure during 12 PM and 3 PM. If you still end up getting sunburned, hydration and aloe vera are your skin’s best friends. Intense Hyaluronic Mask contains hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and cucumber water, which will deliver a cooling and refreshing sensation. Try popping it in the fridge for extra relief.
