Travel wrecking your skin? Sebamed to the rescue + advice[classic article]

If you’ve been traveling around the US lately, you’ll noticed that the mercury’s been climbing, which can be very pretty for the local flora, but can ratchet up the problems for your skin. Oiliness, breakouts, irritation: they’re all very tricky to get rid of. Harsh products that strip your skin only serve to make things worse. Sebamed can help with all of that! I was very happy to be hosted to experience it.

The Clear Face Cleansing Foam pumps out light as air, so there’s no dragging and pulling to apply it. Unlike most deep cleansing products, it leaves quite an emollient, soft feel on the skin. It doesn’t really have a pronounced scent.

When your skins has gone haywire, it’s easy to think that you don’t want to put anything on . . . but that’s just wrong thinking. You still need a moisturizer. Their Moisturizing Face Cream feels rich, yet whipped to the touch. Upon application, it feels light and absorbs. It’s a no-nonsense formula, giving you moisture — not grease.

Here are some summer skincare tips:

Mistake: Applying Makeup with Dirty Brushes. This may seem innocent, but applying makeup with the same brush month after month causes dirt and bacteria to buildup which can lead to breakouts. It’s important you wash brushes every two to three weeks. An easy DIY quick fix is to mix a couple of drops of gentle facial cleanser or shampoo with lukewarm water in a cup. Then swish your brushes around, rinse with lukewarm water, pat dry, and lay flat on a clean towel to air dry.

Mistake: Skimping on Sleep. Your skin and body go into repair mode when asleep. This is why sticking to a regular sleeping routine will not only keep you well rested, but will help to renew and regenerate new skin cells. For an extra boost, try incorporating just a glass a day of soy milk into your daily routine as this can help improve the structure and firmness of your skin, as well as soften those crow’s feet.

Mistake: Not Cleansing Daily. Going to bed without washing your face is one of the biggest skin care no-no’s. Leaving makeup and dirt on skin doesn’t just clog pores and cause breakouts, it can also lead to excessive dryness and even skin dandruff. To clear out the gunk without drying out skin, opt for a soap-free cleanser like Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Foam and start cleansing on a daily basis! The cleanser is soap and alkali-free wash that gently cleanses pores to eliminate pimples and blackheads, with a coconut oil-based antibacterial active ingredient that removes bacteria to prevent the formation of new pimples.

Mistake: Waiting To Moisturize. Most creams and lotions have key ingredients that create a protective barrier on the surface of the skin to lock in moisture to maintain a healthy pH balance of 5.5. For optimum moisture, slather on Sebamed Moisturizing Face Cream immediately after cleansing or a hot shower, before the skin cools and your pores begin to close).

You can purchase the products online or at lots of national drug store and grocery chains.
