The end of summer often means going back to school and… pimples? Yes, it's what we call the rebound effect, this unpleasant phenomenon that occurs after our sunny vacation. But why ?
It's simple: it's a reaction of our skin after being soaked in sunlight. During the summer, the skin thickens to protect itself from UV rays, and at the same time traps impurities. After the summer, she tries to get rid of them and eliminates them in the form of pimples.
But the rebound effect isn't just limited to pimples. It can also manifest as dull skin, redness, or even increased skin sensitivity. So, how can we prevent and mitigate this unpleasant back-to-school effect?
Hydration, hydration, hydration! During the summer, our skin loses a lot of water due to heat and exposure to the sun. It's essential to restore hydration by using moisturizers rich in soothing ingredients like aloe vera or hyaluronic acid.
Opt for treatments rich in antioxidants: antioxidants neutralize free radicals generated by UV rays, reduce the risk of premature aging, help prevent skin cancer, promote cellular repair, and reduce skin inflammation.
Gentle cleansing: Avoid harsh cleansers that could irritate your skin. Instead, opt for gentle, non-comedogenic cleansers to gently remove impurities accumulated during the summer.
Regular exfoliation: A gentle exfoliant can help remove dead skin cells and prevent clogged pores. Choose an exfoliator suited to your skin type and don't overdo it, once or twice a week is usually enough.
Daily sun protection: Using the right sunscreen for your skin type is crucial to preventing damage from UV rays. Even in autumn, sun protection is essential.
- Consult a dermatologist: If the rebound effect persists despite your efforts, it is recommended to consult a dermatologist. They will be able to prescribe specific treatments for your skin type and give you personalized advice.
By following these tips, you can say goodbye to the back-to-school rebound effect and welcome the new season with glowing, healthy skin. Remember that the key to beautiful skin lies in a suitable and consistent skincare routine, whatever the time of year.
