During the summer months, skin care becomes the most important aspect of everyone’s beauty routine as makeup gets dewier and more highlighted. Glowy makeup is a great seasonal trend, but it’s difficult for people with acne-prone skin to wear the trend because it accentuates skin texture, breakouts, and oftentimes increases oiliness. On the other hand, acne skin care can be extremely harsh and damaging to sensitive skin. In order to gently heal acne, here are our tips for a quick and easy summery skincare routine that will clear up your skin.
Step 1: Start off your morning routine by lathering the OFRA Foaming Vitamin C Cleanser all over your face. It will remove any excess makeup that might’ve been there from the night before, as well as balance oil production.
Step 2: Apply Cool As A Cucumber to the face. This moisturizer is lightweight, has a velvety texture, and also works as a hydrating primer.
Step 3: To spot treat your skin, apply the Blemish Treatment Cream. It has immediate results, will reduce the bacterial count, and clear pores. The cream also works really well under makeup, so feel free to apply it on your problem areas and let it heal your skin throughout the day.
Step 4: To finish off your morning skincare, target specific pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads by applying the Drying Lotion. This will dry the oil and dirt out of your blemishes and reduce the amount of time a breakout stays on your face. It comes in a variety of different shades, as well, so if you see a pimple pop up in the morning, you can apply it after your moisturizer has sunk in and it will blend with your skin tone. You can apply it on your oily, broken-out areas to keep your skin matte all day long.
Step 5: After applying your face makeup, set it with the Acne Treatment Loose Mineral Powder to treat your skin during the day. It comes in six different shades, so you have a wide variety to choose from based on your skin color and undertone.
Step 1: Mask Time! Masks are a fun way to relax after a long day, while deep cleaning your skin. You’ll only want to use masks 2-3 times a week to avoid irritating the skin. For acne-prone skin, we have two different mask options: the wash-off Blemish Treatment Mask and the peel-off Vitamin A&C Mask. If you have breakouts all over your face, then use the Blemish Treatment Mask before your other skincare, applying a thin layer all over that you’ll leave on for 10 minutes and then wash off. For oil control, brightness, and firmness use the Vitamin A&C Peel-Off Mask by pouring the liquid in your hand and then evenly spreading it on your face; it is important that you apply an even amount all over your face so you’ll be able to peel it off later.
Step 2: Cleanse your face using the OFRA Foaming Vitamin C Cleanser. This cleanser is super gentle, so it will leave your face feeling clean, but not stripped of its moisture.
Step 3: Tone your face using our Fruit Acid Lotion. This will further clean the skin by removing excess oils and clearing blackheads. This is the most effective step of the routine, so you might experience some discomfort at first, but this just means that the product is doing its job of clearing your skin.
Step 4: Apply the Oil Free Moisturizer all over your face to increase the vibrancy of your complexion. It will absorb in seconds and is full of antioxidants, so it’s hassle-free and great for your skin.
Step 5 (optional): The second way you can use the Blemish Treatment Mask is at the end of your routine. If the majority of your skin is clear and you have a few small problem areas, then apply a thin layer of the mask over the select areas and leave it on overnight.
