During the summer months, the combination of sunscreen and sweat leaves your pores vulnerable to clogging, blackheads and that dreaded surprise pimple right before a hot night out. The most effective way to treat summertime acne is to prevent it.
When selecting an acne treatment, it’s important to stick to products that won’t overdry your skin or inflame the existing problem areas.
For this reason we love St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub. This iconic brand has been saving skin for decades, but we love that this timeless scrub makes skin feels fresh after each use. You can feel the gentle exfoliators scrubbing away your dead skin cells to brighten your complexion while preventing blemishes. For those with sensitive skin, rest assured it is oil-free, paraben-free, hypo-allergenic and dermie tested. Plus at less than $4, you won’t have to reach deep into your pockets to add this essential to your beauty routine.
Just as we apply SPF all over, it is important to use a body wash that removes the residual gunk and leaves skin feeling tres chic. After a day at the beach, we love to nourish skin with St. Ives Revitalizing Pear & Soy Body Wash. It’s a gentle body wash that packs a punch of nourishing benefits to moisturize skin without harmful ingredients. It’s also has a delicious fragrance that turns the shower into a tranquil oasis, then washes away so you don’t smell like a juicy pear all day.
