Pityrosporum folliculitis and summer go together. That's because this type of 'fungal' acne gets worse in hot weather when you sweat. It especially gets worse if you also have oily skin. This same hot and sweaty weather often involves sun exposure – the perfect storm for acne scars and marks called post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. In summer, or when you are going on a sunny, hot weather vacation, be prepared.
Get Treatment to Prevent Summer Pityrosporum Folliculitis Acne Scars
You need products that:
- Discourage the proliferation of the Pityrosporum yeast that causes this hot weather type of acne;
- Keratolytics to unclog pores because the yeast loves to cause pimples in plugged pores;
- Benzoyl peroxide to reduce the P. acnes germ that works together with Pityrosporum yeast to really rev up this type of acne; and
- Broad spectrum sun protection capable of blocking UV rays that lead to hyperpigmented acne scars.
