Summer humidity brings extra break-outs

Summer for awhile.....

Those of us that have oily skin have trouble in the summer with extra break-outs.  I am using a new product that has made such a difference in my skin this summer.  SkinCeuticals has a new serum called Blemish + Age Defense.  It fights acne and age at the same time.....great combination. 
25% of men and 50% of woman have problems with adult acne.
This serum has 2% Dioic Acid that controls sebum production and reduces the presence of P. acne,  the acne causing bacteria.   It has 1.5% Salicylic Acid that unclogs pores removing dirt and oil that lead to breakouts.   It has Glycolic Acid and .5%  Citirc Acid that exfoliate dead skin,  minimizing fine lines and wrinkles and smoothes rough texture.

This serum is well tolerated by 92% of patients so sensitive skin types love it.  I am very sensitive and it works wonders for me without the irritation.
This is the answer for adults concerned about breakouts.

As seen in Bellaninia's 101 blog " There is something about Salicylic Acid" 
Salicylic Acid has roots going back to Hippocrates in ancient Greece. Originally derived from the bark of a willow tree, salicylic acid offers many benefits for corrective skin care. Primarily it is used to aid the natural exfoliation process skin undergoes and reduce blemishes and acne prone skin types by clearing the pores of excess build up.
Salicylic acid is usually produced synthetically now from aspirin. Because it comes from aspirin, it carries many of the anti-inflammatory benefits as well. In terms of skin care, this means a reduction in redness and swelling of acne. This helps to reduce acne, prevent new acne from developing and decreases the likelihood of scarring. It is also oil-soluble which means it can penetrate the oil in your skin and remove grime and build up from the pores more easily than other water based skin care ingredients.
Another great benefit of using salicylic acid for acne treatment is its anti bacterial qualities. It is the bacteria residing in the pores causes inflammation and “white heads” to develop. By removing the bacteria, it will help to clear up this type of acne and decrease the chance of it returning
