I work outside and i think this humid weather is really making my acne worse. Does anyone have any tips on how to control acne during humid weather?

I know what you mean..All that hot humidity makes my skin all oily. What I do is rinse my face in cold water every now and then. Can't really do much besides that. Can't change the humidity in the air.

I have been in that situation before and there is nothing you can actually do to control acne in humid weather. The reason that makes the acne appear in the humid weather or make acne worse is because our sweat glands and oil glands in the skin become overactive. Try washing your face more often with just plain water and not use any other soap or cleansing foam because if you use any, you'll have rebound oiliness due to the change in the pH of your skin. Take care.
