Summer is officially here. With that, summer acne is also here for many of us. You may be wondering, why does my skin breakout in the summer? Good question. Summer is one of the most annoying times to have skin issues, as you’ll likely want to spend your days out and about with friends and family.
So why does acne often get worse (or appear randomly) during summer?
The short answer is: With hot, muggy weather, we sweat to cool off. Irritants like dirt, dust and oil stick to the sweat and can cause clogged pores. Because the bacteria that causes acne loves a super oily environment, like sweaty skin, the oil on our skin coupled with bacteria create the perfect recipe for a pimple.
As if the heat alone wasn’t enough to cause breakouts over the summer, if you’re loading up on sugary foods and drinks, like soda, margaritas and ice cream, you could be instigating pimples and not even realize it. Sugary, high-glycemic foods are pro-inflammatory, which will lead to more oil production.
