How To Avoid Breakouts At The Beach

Whenever I go to the beach, I usually expect a pimple or two to pop up either during the trip or a few days after I get home. Such a hassle! The main reason for my breakouts: Sunscreen!

Wait, wait, wait—it’s not because sunscreen is bad ha. It’s just that the constant reapplying (combined with the sweat and saltwater) was just too much for my pores. To help get rid of the residue, I realized I needed to pack a good exfoliator to get rid of excess film on my face.

My beach musts! I snagged a bottle after trying a sample sachet from BDJBox. I use the bottle when I'm at home and save the sachets for when I travel.

My beach musts! I first tried Cure through the sample sachets in BDJBox and snagged a bottle soon after. Since the bottle is too huge to lug around, I’ve been saving the sachets for when I travel.

Cure Natural Aqua Gel (P1,500) has become one of my beauty staples because it gets rid of dead skin cells and pore-clogging dirt without rough or painful microbeads. When I’m at the beach, I just use this on the second or third night to banish sunscreen residue and apply an intense moisturizer right after. And guess what? Haven’t had an angry pimple since! Of course, you should only use this if you’re not sunburnt or peeling. Otherwise, you risk wreaking more havoc on your skin.
