The British Summer Time is always unpredictable and 2011 is no different.
One day, it's hot, the next it's cold and the constant changes can play havoc with your skin; especially when it is also getting subjected to various air conditioning and heating in the office, in the car, or at home.
These constant climate changes, whether natural or man-made, cause imbalances with the skin can can lead to an oily T-zone (forehead / nose / chin) or outbreaks of spots.
Why Does My Skin Come Out In Spots?
With heat, the skin pores open to cool then have to work hard to close against cool air. This constant opening and closing can lead to impurities. For instance, when you are hot, you sweat. The saltiness that is left as your skin cools can dry out your skin.
This is when the sebaceous glands go into overdrive to create oils to combat the de-hydrated skin. The following video explains this process.
Regime To Keep Your Skin Clear and Fresh
To combat outbreaks of spots or an oily 'T' Zone and manage your skin during changeable summer weather, it's just a case of adapting your skincare regime.
Follow your usual Cleanse, Tone, Moisturise regime once of twice and day. Try using the Eve Taylor Balancing Skincare Range:
