Acneic skin and the sun
If exposed in moderate amounts, sunlight can be great for our skin; it provides beneficial vitamin D and can help it look tanned and beautiful. But what about those with acneic skin? Whilst many say the hot temperature can cause perspiration that brings excess oil to the skin’s surface, there can be some downsides. Sweating caused by being out in the sun can lead to bacteria spreading and causing more blemishes.
In terms of appearance it can make hyperpigmentation from acneic skin look worse and, the obvious result of too much sun, lead to sunburn and damage. In addition to this, too much exposure to the sun can cause the skin to dry out. For acneic skin in particular this can be a big issue as finding a way to hydrate the skin without making blemishes worse can be a nightmare.

To help with the issues associated with sun exposure, Acnegen created a product that is specifically designed to help protect acneic skin from the sun whilst also caring for its specific needs.

These help to look after blemish-prone skin by being soothing and mositurising. Overall this makes the Acne Solar Protection SPF 30 the ideal all-in-one skincare product to care for all the needs of acneic skin in the sun.
