6. Wash and exfoliate
While being active outside is probably the ideal way to spend a beautiful summer day, it’s also the easiest way to expose your skin to dirt, sweat and debris that can clog your pores. The Sciarrinos warn, “With outdoor activities and sports, acne can occur on the face, chest and back.”
They say the best way to keep your skin clear in the summer is to cleanse with body wash and an exfoliator immediately upon returning home. When using body wash, lather up with a sponge or loofah for extra exfoliation, stand away from the water for at least two minutes, then rinse. You should exfoliate your body three or four times a week.
According to the Sciarrinos, Neutrogena’s Body Clear body wash works well. Just make sure to buy the original version, with no fancy fragrances. For your face, they recommend using a gentle exfoliator on your face and neck once or twice a week.
To wash your face and neck, they say the Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Creme is a must, and for your body, check out their very own Two Chicks whipped pumice scrubs.
