Spring is all set to bid adieu and this signals a change—a change in your beauty routine. Summer heat and humidity can trigger unwanted breakouts, and even though we can hide under masks presently, video calls always find a way to highlight zits. So, step up to the season and steal the spotlight, even if it is on video call for now.
We have rounded the best acne-fighting products and tips to help you in this mission.

Moisturising Is A Must
A sweaty face might mimic a hydrated one, but that is no reason to strike-off moisturiser from your routine. Moisturising is just as important as sun screening throughout the year. However, you might want to change your moisturiser depending on the season. Look out for light, mattifying moisturisers preferably with SPF to battle acne and the limited sun you will face during this lockdown.
Vow To Vitamin C
This powerful antioxidant doesn’t just build immunity (which we all need right now) but also fights hyperpigmentation, fine lines and acne-induced inflammation. Summer or not, invest in a good vitamin-C serum and remember to dab it after cleansing. You can always try our picks.
Eat Healthy, Stay Hydrated
A few rules never change. You can use a million products but your skin is what you eat and drink. So remember to eat healthily, and drink tons of water. There is nothing more refreshing for the face and soul than salads and fresh juices during sweltering months.
