How sulfur can help protect your skin from heat, from a dermatologist
When your skin is exposed to high temperatures, your chances of getting an oily complexion, breakouts, and persistent redness are greatly increased.
The secret: find a product with sulfur. Board-certified dermatologist Sherin Idriss, MD, FAAD (aka “Pillowtalk Derm”), recently covered the benefits of this buzzy ingredient in a TikTok video. According to Idriss, one ingredient can help protect your skin from the negative effects that come with heat exposure.
“A heart treatment for acne is a treatment you didn’t know you needed, especially if you have oily skin,” she says. But these benefits are greater than meets the eye, even for those skin types that aren’t prone to breakouts.
