A sunblock that’s reliable and comfy to wear



Before you think about getting that summer makeup and outfit on point, protecting your skin from the damaging sun rays should be the top priority! Like Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense, a sunblock that’s non-greasy and at least SPF 50 PA +++ is perfect if you plan on staying out the entire day.






An end-of-the-day hydrating regimen



After a long, hard day of basking under the sun, make sure you rehydrate your skin to keep it supple, luminous, and moisturised! Some of our picks that does the job right? L'Oréal’s Hydrafresh Genius Mask and Essence Cream. Perfect for sensitive skin, these non-sticky products are definitely something you must-have to keep your beauty regimen in full circle for summer.

Acne is not just a teenage problem that you overcome once you’re done with puberty. In fact, some may only experience acne once they hit adulthood. So if you’re feeling down because you don’t have a clear complexion yet or suddenly find yourself breaking out often, don’t be too hard on yourself. You’re not alone in this!


Pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads aren’t a ‘forever’ kind of thing. With the right skincare routine, it can be treated and banished for good. However, due to numerous myths and misconceptions about acne, it leads many to incorrectly care for their skin which often does more harm than good.

So if you don’t want to damage your skin and further irritate your acne, keep reading below for the acne myths we debunked!

--------------------------


Myth: People with acne are unhygienic

It may seem like people with acne are “dirty” because they don’t have clear complexions; but more often that not, these are the ones who constantly clean their faces, believing it will help solve their acne problems.

However, if you think that washing your face every few hours will keep your skin clear and hydrated, think again! Splashing water all over your face actually dries it out, leading to more production of sebum and thus increasing the chances of your pores getting clogged and developing blemishes!



Our advice? Wash and cleanse your skin a maximum of 2 times a day—once in the morning and once at night. The Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Cleanser is perfect for this as its soap-free, fragrance-free gel formula gently but effectively cleanses skin, even sensitive ones! It also contains 6% Ampho-tensides to eliminate excess sebum and inhibit bacteria production which will prevent new spots from popping up.

Myth: Acne is only for adolescents and teenagers

Like we said earlier, acne is not just for teenagers and adolescents as a large number of adults suffer from it too! Why? It could be a number of factors such as hormones and genes; but most of the time, it’s because of the use of makeup.

Makeup is amazing and is a quick way to create a flawless complexion; but when it’s not removed properly and thoroughly it can wreak havoc on your skin. So if you’re in need of a product that will quickly and effectively clean your skin and remove all traces of makeup, the Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Makeup & Acne Cleansing Water is the perfect one for you!

Check out the video below for tips and tricks to get smooth and refreshed skin!

 

Its micellar technology removes makeup and deep-seated impurities, tightens pores, and reduces acne for a toned and hydrated complexion!



Myth: A poor diet leads to acne

Let’s get one thing straight, according to numerous studies your acne is not caused by a poor or unhealthy diet – but of course, a healthier diet is always preferable to a bad one!

But if your acne is related to your diet, it’s most likely because you’re allergic to something you’re eating. When you eat something your body is intolerant of, it releases toxins into your immune system which can cause skin inflammation such as acne.

Aside from finding out which foods you’re allergic to, cleanse your skin with a fast-absorbing yet concentrated emulsion, like the Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Active Concentrate. This non-comedogenic, anti-bacterial, oil-free, and preservative-free serum effectively unclogs and purifies pores. It’s also formulated with Lactic Acid, which improves the skin’s condition; and Decandiol, which reduces the growth of bacteria in your pores to help prevent the development of new spots!
