Sun and breakouts !

Hi πŸ‘‹ I use religiously my SPF 50 that works very well and I did not change my routine but … I am on holiday and getting much more sun than usual (I put much more spf too and more often). Nevertheless I am breaking out and I think it’s the sun 🌞 Have you ever noticed the same problem ?? Thank you for your answers πŸ’•

I think the cause is not only the sun but also the sunscreen. Since you apply much more and more often it is also crucial you would have to make sure you have removed all of the residue thoroughly at the end of the day. I'm afraid if there is still residue it can clog your pores and cause problem. You might also consider the different environment such as the water, too.

UV rays can increase production of sebum, which can clog pores. Sunscreen probably doesn't help with clogged pores either. Here are a few recommendations, but keep in mind I'm not a professional. They're simply based on my personal experience. πŸ’¦ If you can, rinse off before putting another layer of sunscreen. 🧴 Continue with your double cleansing πŸ‘• Change your t-shirt after sweating I hope this helps!

Have you checked the ingredients of your sunscreen? They often contain irritants and comedogenic ingredients - which may be ok if you use sparingly, but if you're piling it on, sweating etc, it would be more likely to cause breakouts.

Apart from your sunscreen... When the weather is hot, you will sweat more and your skin will also naturally produce more oils. This will lead to greater likelihood of sebum combining with dirt to clog your pores and lead to breakouts. Ensure you cleanse properly always and exfoliate regularly 2-3 times a week, preferably with BHA :)
