When we think of summer, we often think spring break, cocktails, beaches, and all those hot summer nights, but for some, summer can become a battlezone to maintain their cool look. The combination of heat, sweat, oil, grease, and sun becomes a toxic mix that creates a mix of skin care problems such as acne, sun damage, and oil. Thankfully help is on hand. Male Standard teamed up with Men’s Health to give you three simple steps towards clean and clear skin and hair this summer.
Below are three products that will help you maintain your cool this summer!
Kiehl’s Oil Eliminator Series
Oil, sweat, and grime are the biggest culprits in summer acne. Thankfully Kiehl’s is on hand with this shine control spray. Used alone or with their complete oil elimination series (face wash, toner, and matte moisturizer), you can manage gnarly breakouts by tackling the cause of the problem. As oil and dirt accumulate on the surface of the skin, they block pores. The inflammation is in the pimples. You can use the spray throughout the day as needed to target any residue. It lasts a solid 8-12 hours.
- Instantly cools skin and neutralizes excess oil to reduce the appearance of shine and pores.
- Leaves skin with a clean, matte, healthy-looking appearance
- Oil-Free, Paraben-Free, Sulfate-Free and Dermatologist tested
- Allergy tested, Non-acnegenic
Neutrogena Clear Face Break Out Free SPF
While your skin care routine may be on par for summer, sunscreen can undo all your hard work. Neutrogena created a sunscreen that will give you complete coverage without sacrificing your skin quality. It contains no oil, so you don’t end up with a greasy residue like with other sunscreens. It’s also hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types. Using an SPF in summer is essential as sun damage causes skin cancer, fine lines and wrinkles. We like the SPF 30 for daily use.
Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and Conditioner
During summer, sweat can accumulate around the hairline and cause acne or white pimples. This localized irritation can be painful but is easily treated with a cleansing shampoo and conditioner. This refreshing tea tree treatment is effective at cutting through grease and grime without damaging your hair. If you use greasy styling products, such as pomades, this will be a great year-round treatment for you too. Simply wash every 2-3 days or as needed to maintain clean and clear hair and skin.
