How to Combat Summer Acne: Skincare Strategies and Formulation Guide

How do you combat summer acne? You can start by reading our article “How to combat summer acne: Skincare strategies and formulation guide”. Here you will discover expert skincare strategies for preventing and managing summer acne. Dive into the root causes of seasonal breakouts and explore our personal care lab’s innovative skincare formulas.


Factors Contributing to Summer Acne

As the mercury rises, so does the prevalence of ‘summer acne’. This seasonal skincare challenge often results from a combination of sweltering heat, humidity, and lifestyle changes that summer brings. Here’s why summer can make your skin more prone to breakouts and what you can do to keep it clear:

  1. Increased Sweating: Higher temperatures lead to more sweating, which, when mixed with natural oils and bacteria on your skin, could clog pores and cause acne.
  2. Humidity: This sticky culprit can trap sweat and oils on your skin, exacerbating pore clogging.
  3. Sunscreen: Essential for UV protection, some sunscreens contain ingredients that could clog pores in sensitive individuals.
  4. Heavy Moisturizers: Intense sun can dry out your skin, prompting the use of rich moisturizers that might contribute to blocked pores.
  5. Outdoor Exposure: Pollution and allergens encountered during outdoor activities can irritate the skin and promote acne.

Prevention Tips

  • Sunscreen Savvy: Opt for non-comedogenic sunscreen to protect against UV rays without congesting your skin. Reapply frequently during prolonged exposure.
  • Cleansing: A gentle foaming cleanser can keep your skin free from the accumulation of sweat, oil, and impurities. Consider one with salicylic acid to help keep pores clear.
  • Moisturize Wisely: A lightweight, oil-free moisturizer will hydrate without adding unwanted shine or oiliness.
  • Hydration: Drink water consistently. Hydrated skin is happy skin.
  • Makeup Moderation: Choose lighter makeup options to avoid a mix of cosmetics and sweat clogging your pores.
  • Hands-Off: Keep your hands away from your face to reduce the transfer of bacteria.
  • Stress Management: Engage in stress-relief activities to mitigate the skin’s stress response, which can lead to breakouts.
  • Exfoliate: Gently exfoliate to remove dead skin cells, but don’t overdo it – over-exfoliation can irritate the skin.
  • Professional Help: For stubborn or severe acne, a dermatologist’s advice can be invaluable.

Individual responses to skincare routines can vary, making it essential to find a routine that works best for your specific skin type. Consulting with a skincare professional can provide tailored advice and treatments to suit your individual needs.

Our commitment to combining nature with science is evident in every product, providing you with the best that personal care innovation has to offer.


BioStine Galasalate

This innovative ingredient is safe and effective, without cytotoxicity at concentrations below 0.1%. It rivals the anti-acne prowess of Benzoyl Peroxide by targeting the troublesome Propionibacterium acnes with similar antibacterial strength. In concentrations as low as 5-25 ppm, it can repair damaged keratinocytes, enhancing skin’s self-repair mechanisms, particularly from glucocorticoid-induced damage, and kickstarting the metabolic processes for healthier skin dynamics. Its comprehensive anti-bacterial and cellular repair efficacies make BioStine Galasalate a cornerstone in acne treatment without any safety concerns.


Crafted from biotechnological marvels, Hydraskin™ is a testament to sustainability and innovation. Derived from oenological yeasts, this ingredient is a byproduct of the wine industry, ensuring an eco-friendly approach to skincare. It’s GMO-free and produced through controlled processes that ensure purity and consistency. Its primary action is akin to quenching thirst after a workout – it provides instant, lasting hydration and shields the skin from osmotic stress, all while respecting the planet’s ecosystem and biodiversity.

Mineralis GU/ZN

Astringency redefined – MINERALIS GU/ZN is a smooth operator, clinically proven to reduce sebum production by targeting the enzymes involved in its synthesis. Its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, alongside its ability to accelerate wound healing, are a boon for acne-prone skin. With visible results backed by a majority of testers, this ingredient promises a refined, pore-less, and smooth complexion.


From the heart of the Misiones Rainforest comes Oleobiota™, a botanical active that aligns with the Nagoya Protocol, ensuring ethical sourcing and benefit-sharing. It’s a genius in modulating oily skin, preventing dysbiosis, balancing microbiota, and delivering a matte finish. Its ability to control sebum, unclog pores, and minimize their appearance is due to its rich tannin content, which also helps to reduce inflammation related to dysbiosis, making it a multifaceted ally in maintaining skin clarity and health.

Plant C – Stem™ Vigna radiata

Extracted from Vigna radiata stem cells, this ingredient is the skincare equivalent of a plant’s serum. It’s designed to repair UV-induced damage and bolster cellular viability upon sun exposure. The anti-oxidant defenses it imparts help the skin to adapt to environmental stressors such as UV radiation. Clinically proven to soothe skin erythema, it boosts the skin’s SPF, not by acting as a UV filter, but by enhancing the skin’s natural defense against erythema production, integral to SPF calculation.


Harnessing the power of Vitamin B₉ (folic acid), B9-Vitapol is extracted from green leafy vegetables and plays a critical role in human health by stimulating protein metabolism and the immune system. When applied to the skin, it can prevent UV-induced damage, stimulate cell growth, and offer anti-wrinkle benefits.


Sourced from Finnish mushrooms, Coolin is a fermented extract that naturally modulates the skin’s temperature sensors, reducing heat damage and improving elasticity. It addresses thermosensory and anti-wrinkle needs by acting on TRPV-1 receptors, providing a soothing and cooling effect on the skin after exposure to high temperatures.

Zinc Sebum™

Zinc Sebum™ is a synergistic blend of zinc peptides, cinnamon, thyme, mallow, and witch hazel, tailored for acne and oily skin treatments. It offers astringent, decongestant, moisturizing, and antibacterial actions. Its intelligent formulation ensures zinc’s targeted action, controlling sebum production and oiliness while providing germicidal efficacy.



    Each of these ingredients is thoughtfully selected and incorporated into our offerings to ensure that your formulations not only help skin survive but also thrive during the summer months. Their combined actions create a comprehensive regimen that addresses the multiple facets of summer skin concerns, from acne and oiliness to hydration and protection.
