Though the summer months are often associated with sunny days, tan skin, and endless fun, this season comes with one unforeseen problem – it wreaks havoc on your skin – mine at least. During the summer months, your skin is constantly being put to the test—some days it’s exposed to high sun and salt water, other days rain and humidity. Some examples of summer related skin conditions are oily skin, acne/sweat related breakouts, and sunburn (the worst of all!).
It’s All About Face Cleansing
Though these problems can feel unavoidable in the summer months, there are real ways to avoid and prevent them from happening to you. I have two holy grail practices for this season that I never ever omit from my daily ritual. First, applying sunscreen, and second, thorough cleansing. And it worked out! I won’t lie – some of it is genetics (thanks Mom!), some is pure luck, but mostly, it was consistent CLEANSING. No matter how early I had to wake up for school or how late I got back from a photoshoot, I never, ever skipped my cleansing routine, and that is something I have still stuck with after all these years. However, over the past few months, I have added an integral step to my cleansing routine, and that is the use of the FOREO LUNA mini 2.
How To Use A Face Brush To Fight Skin Breakouts
The LUNA mini 2 is a waterproof face brush that deeply, get gently cleanses your skin in order to create healthier, more radiant skin. With sonic pulsations and vibrations, the LUNA mini 2 digs deep down into your pores as you cleanse to remove any traces of excess dirt, oil, and makeup, leaving your skin fresh and clean. I use the product in 4 simple steps:
- Wet your skin and the device under some warm water.
- Apply your cleanser with your fingers straight on to your skin
- Turn on the device and cleanse away! Small, circular motions around your entire face.
My Verdict to LUNA Mini 2
This is the first facial cleansing brush I’ve ever tried and I’m super happy with the results. I don’t use any cream based makeup remover but simply micellar water so there’s always residue and my LUNA mini 2 always comes into the rescue at these times too. If you’ve watched my most recent Mumbai vlog, you will have seen me use the device right in front of you—my skin went from oily and lifeless to truly glowing (and so, so clean) in a matter of minutes. Though the product can run a little bit on the pricier side, the way it makes my skin feel and look is absolutely priceless. The only wish I had was that I knew about it sooner– especially when I still lived at home. Would have been an absolute game changer in the Mumbai heat.
Anyways, I hope all of you struggling with summer skin problems found this post helpful. So many of us, including myself, often forget how important it is to take care of our skin, especially during these summer months. But, our skin is truly our barrier from the outside world, and it is our job to protect it as best we can. We only get one chance to get it right, so start practicing good habits now and let them lead you through the rest of your life—you won’t regret it!
