With summer around the corner, now is the time to prep the skin and be ready for spending long days wearing sunscreen and foundation.

Check out these eight fab products which help prep and treat the skin for breakouts and congestion in summer.

Prevention Products:

Silvi Pillowcase RRP $89

Launched in 2020 by founders Ben Goodman and Max Herten, the Silvi pillowcase RRP $ is an anti-acne pillowcase made from 100 percent silk and designed to prevent skin friction whilst you sleep, helping to stop breakouts, as skin can breathe during the night. 

According to studies conducted by Silvi, the face spend a third of its time on a pillow that has dust mites, sixteen different fungi, and a thousand times more bacteria than that of a toilet seat (shocking), resulting in breakouts and even acne on the skin. 

Silvi uses silver ions woven into the fabric of the pillowcase, which help kill 99.7 percent of bacteria before it has a chance to reproduce and attack the skin. The pillowcase is hypoallergenic, completely natural and non-toxic, and perfect for all skin types and ages.
