How To Keep Your Skin Clear While Camping

campingThat camping trip that’s so rejuvenating for your soul sometimes can be a little rough on your skin.

But with the right approach, you can go home looking as refreshed as you feel.

Some of the best skin care practices I know will keep your skin clear without interfering with your fun in the great outdoors.


Defend Your Skin from the Elements

If you are using exfoliating serums such as mandelic acid, glycolic acid or lactic acid in your daily skincare routine I recommend not to apply it on those hot, sunny camping days.

Products like these can increase your sun sensitivity by up to 45 percent and can make you susceptible for sunburns. Instead of using it during the day, try to incorporate it into your night routine.

For protection from both sunburns and breakouts, I recommend a broad spectrum SPF 30 sunblock that contains zinc oxide. Zinc oxide blocks damaging UVA rays while also help reduce inflammation.

Apply a generous amount every hour when you’re out in the sun and don’t forget your hat and sunglasses!

Now I know when you’re in the middle of the woods, reapplying sunblock isn’t always convenient. So for touch-ups, try a mineral powder with an SPF 30 or higher. Just make sure you choose a brand with no pore-clogging ingredients.


Keep Clean, but Don’t Overdo it

With all that dust, pollen, and campfire smoke, your face can get pretty messy out there, so I understand the temptation to wash frequently. Remember that while dirt can irritate your skin, it doesn’t cause acne.

Gently washing your face twice a day should be enough. If you feel the need for cleansing your skin more than twice a day, just rinse it with clean tap water and use your toner with a cotton round to remove any residue that is left over.

When you get back from hiking or another activity, wash your skin with a sulfate-free gel cleanser. Follow that up with a gel-based hydrating mask to soothe irritation and relieve the dryness caused by the wind and sun.

Before going to bed cleanse your skin with your favorite cleanser and apply a sheer moisturizer. I suggest one that contains soothing ingredients such as panthenol and niacinamide.

Niacinamide also known as vitamin B3 and it’s a powerhouse ingredient. It can help firm the skin, reduce hyperpigmentation, reduce inflammation and prevent moisture loss. These moisturizers are especially beneficial at night because they deliver nutrients that help your skin repair itself, yet they’re light enough not to clog pores.

 PoreInfusion Vitamin B lotion contains all of these healing ingredients and will leave your skin smooth and hydrated. 

If despite all your efforts you still end up with a breakout or a sunburn, don’t worry. Our natural LED Light Therapy can heal your skin in record time.
