Why an SPF moisturiser is important for acne and oily skin.
Sun exposure, pollution, makeup and dehydration can all worsen the appearance of acne breakouts, oily skin and acne scars. Here is why:
5 ways to prevent blackheads with these tips:
Untreated blackheads can become breakouts, so it is important to keep pores clear.
Sun UV Rays – UV radiation dehydrates skin, causing it to over-produce oil – so skin ends up even oilier. The suns UVB rays also cause sunburn and peeling, which generate excess dead skin cells. Excess oil and dead skin cells are two of the main factors that contribute to acne. Together, they clog follicles (pores), increasing the chances of breaking out. If you have acne scars, UV rays can make them darker and more noticeable because scar tissue is highly sensitive to sunlight. Darkening is the skins way of protecting itself from further damage.
Pollution – Airborne pollution also leads to skin dehydration and excess oil production, as well as inflammation, which makes existing acne look worse. Studies show that oily skin and acne increase with pollution, and that the effects of pollution may be even worse with UV exposure
Pore Clogging Makeup – Going to bed with makeup on, or applying makeup over makeup from the day before, contributes to acne cosmetica, or acne that develops from wearing makeup. Telltale signs of acne cosmetica include many tiny bumps (whiteheads) on the cheeks, chin, lips, or forehead.
Dehydration – Not only is skin dehydration caused by UV rays and pollution, it’s also caused by lifestyle habits like over-exfoliating and taking hot showers. These habits can compromise the skins naturally protective outer layer, which is responsible for keeping moisture in.
