After summer acne-prone skin can often suffer from what can be known as the ‘ acne rebound effect ‘. That is the sudden appearance of numerous pimples all over the face after spending a summer with hardly any.
This means that at the beginning of Autumn there are lots of questions about how to take care of oily and acne-ridden skin. Which means there is more of a demand for treatments to improve the appearance of oily skin and eliminate pimples.
Why does the rebound effect of acne occur?
Rebound acne can occur in late or just after summer due to different causes. Over summer, the sun and sea salt dry out the skin, so that oily skin improves momentarily. Also, ultraviolet rays exert a bactericidal action, eliminating the microorganisms involved in the appearance of pimples. Hence, during the summer months, acne skin presents fewer issues.
The problem is that, in the face of sun exposure, our skin thickens to protect it from radiation and, as a result, it can end up clogging the sebaceous glands. Therapists should keep in mind that the less protection a client has from the sun, the more the skin will thicken and the more chances there will be that acne will appear after summer. Skin can also be aggravated by the use of inadequate sunscreens that contribute to clogging the pores, as well as the abandonment of the usual care routine due to the apparent improvement of the skin.
