Acne-free summer camping
20 Aug 2014
Are you feeling adventurous this summer and have a camping trip planned? Then don’t forget to carry all your beauty essentials and pay extra attention to the maintenance of your skin. Below is a list of tips you can take on board to ensure you have an acne-free summer camping trip this season.
Tip one - Try to reapply sunscreen every couple of hours
You are likely to spend a lot of time outdoors and be exposed to a great deal of sunlight exposure. This makes it vital for you to reapply sunscreen every couple if hours to keep your skin protected, moisturised and most importantly blemish-free.
Tip two - keep yourself hydrated
In order to avoid any form of acne from spreading, it's advisable for you to drink plenty of water on your trip to remain energised and help keep your skin hydrated. The nutrients and vitamins in water help your skin stay clear on your trip.
Tip three - take appropriate camping foods that will keep you away from breakouts
You have to be quite particular when it comes to what foods you pack for camping. To avoid your skin from breaking out it may be a good idea for you to obviously avoid any spicy or dairy based foods because these will usually be the main culprits behind your skin flaring up.
Instead, pack light and practical camping foods like fruits, salad, different types of meat, soup, etc. Mix it up each day!
Have overly sensitive and acne-prone skin?
You may be in a position where you have overly sensitive skin and just don't want to take any chances of it getting worse but still want to go on your camping trip. If this sounds familiar, then why not opt for acne treatment sessions well in advance to your trip so you don't have to continuously worry about your acne getting out of control on your trip.
