Summer Breakout Prevention Tips — Clear Skin Like A Celebrity

Mon, July 6, 2015 4:10pm EDT by Dory Larrabee 1 Comment

If you feel like you’ve tried everything to get clear skin but keep getting bombarded by breakouts, keep reading.

The summer is perfect for hanging out with friends and swimming in the ocean, but it can also be a breeding ground for bacteria on your skin, which can result in unsightly breakouts. Find out how to get clear skin for summer below.

Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr. Kenneth Mark tells us:

“One of the most important things to prevent summer breakouts is to do in-office medical grade chemical peels. It is a complete myth that chemical peels should not be done during the summer! They exfoliate, unclog pores and even-out skin tone/blotchiness. Therefore, the peels help benefit from multiple damaging effects of the sun, including sweating, clogging pores, and increase in pigmentation. However, I am not talking about deep chemical peels with downtime, merely superficial with no-downtime peels, but medical grade for maximum benefit.”

At home, “it is key to use a good cleanser such as one containing Salicylic Acid like Neutrogena Acne Wash.”

Get Clear Skin Fast

If you’re not ready for a full-fledged in-office chemical peel, I recommend making an appointment at Skin Laundry, which has locations in California, Arizona and New York City. Their laser and light therapy tightens skin, brightens complexion, kills bacteria and vaporizes dirt, clears acne and so much more.

It takes literally minutes and has no downtime — I leave the space makeup free and feeling great.

Would you try laser and light therapy to get clear skin this summer?
