In the skin department, Summer usually means oilier than normal skin for me.
Which also means clogged pores, and at times, acne prone skin accompanied by dehydrated and irritated skin thanks to time spent in the sun and insane amounts of sunscreen.
One of the best ways that I deal with summer skin issues is by relying pretty heavily on face masks. For me, it's just easier to introduce face masks intended to treat my particular skin woes than to change my entire skincare routine; plus masks always makes an at-home facial feel incredibly indulgent.
Two masks that I just recently discovered just in time for summer are the African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask and the Raw Shea Butter Hydrating Mud Mask from SheaMoisture.Mud masks are great for oil absorption, pore-clearing and overall skin detoxification, combined with an ingredient like shea butter which is both hydrating and restorative, SheaMoisture Mud Masks are basically your best skincare weapon against summer skin issues.
I love using the Hydrating Mud Mask whenever my skin feels dry and dehydrated. It leaves my skin feeling both moisturized and soothed. The Clarifying Mud Mask is great for when my skin is clogged thanks to heat, humidity, sweat and sunscreen. The Clarifying Mud Mask unclogs my pores and leaves my skin feeling smooth and refreshed.
Using these masks on a weekly basis, depending on my skin needs, has enabled me to avoid irritated, clogged, oily, acne prone skin so far this summer! I love them!
