Summer 2018 Skin Care Routine

 

The dog days of summer are finally here and I wanted to share exactly what I’ve been using to continue keeping Pityrosporum folliculitis at bay during these hot and sweaty months.

And, for those of you who are cost-conscious, don’t fret! I tend to keep things pretty conservative when it comes to my skin and my wallet.

So, here is my Summer 2018 Skin Care Routine:

 

Skin Care Routine (Mornings)

 

In the mornings, depending on personal preference and how my skin looks, I either:

My final rinse is always with cool water.  Then, I pat my skin dry with a clean towel.

And, viola!  That’s it!  I like to go au-natural as much as I can so I skip the makeup during most summer days.

 

 

Skin Care Routine (Evenings)

In the evenings, again, depending on personal preference and how my skin looks, I either:

My final rinse is always with cool water.  Then, I pat my skin dry with a clean towel.

I rinse my face a few more times with cool water and pat my skin dry with a clean towel.

For my evening moisturizer, I either use:

 

 

Skin Care Routine (Evenings) – After Wearing Makeup

  • I used to slather either Cerave or any old moisturizer I had lying around to remove my makeup, but nowadays Mario Badescu’s Enzyme Cleansing Gel works not only as a great cleanser, but also an excellent makeup remover.  My skin never feels stripped or dry afterwards and it does a pretty good job at removing makeup, including mascara!
  • After rinsing, often times I follow up with an exfoliant like Burt’s Bees Deep Pore Scrub.

I rinse my face a few times with cool water and pat my skin dry with a clean towel.

For my moisturizer, I either use:

 

 

If you’ve read how to prepare for summer if you have Pityrosporum folliculitis then you can understand how apprehensive I was about introducing a sunscreen AND an oil into my regimen!  Just thinking about it makes me really nervous.  But, it’s been a few months and so far, so good.  In fact, I haven’t had any bouts of PF in almost a year!  I do, occasionally, get blemishes and pimples, but no more than one or two at a time.  Still, diligence during these months makes for a worthwhile payoff year round.

 

So, that’s it!  These five products last all summer long and maybe even into the Fall if I’m not too heavy-handed!

 

 

Pityrosporum Folliculitis Summer Skin Care Routine

Oh, hi there big, beautiful dark circles of mine – July 2018.

 

 

*If you’re interested in trying a similar routine and are currently experiencing a bout of PF, skip the argan oil and the Yes to Carrots Moisturizer SP15.  Instead, opt for something much lighter and safer like Cerave Daily Moisturizing Lotion.  This and several of my all-time favorite Pityrosporum folliculitis products can be read about right here!

    Do you recommend Mario Badescu’s Enzyme Cleansing Gel for Pityrosporum folliculitis on the arms & chest too?

      Good question! I just hopped on their site and they advertise the Enzyme Cleansing Gel as a face wash. The Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, however, is for both face and body. I’ve had really great success with that product as well.
