How to Protect your Skin in Summer?

Summer Skin Care is important, here you will learn about what the sun actually does to your skin, and tips on how to prevent and treat common skin conditions.

Keep Skin Cool

Keep your skin cool especially if you have sensitive skin. If you have rosacea, eczema or sensitive skin, try to keep skin as cool as possible by keeping out of direct sun or keeping skincare products in the fridge. Rosacea, which causes excessive flushing, broken blood vessels and/or acne-like red bumps, can be exacerbated when blood vessels dilate in response to the skin becoming overheated. Heat also draws water out of the skin, so eczema can become worse, sensitive skin can become irritated and atopic dermatitis may itch more intensely. Normal skin will dehydrate in heat, so moisturize, moisturize.

How To Protect Your Skin In Summer?

Always Moisturize Skin

Always moisturize, but switch to oil-free creams and serums. It is always tempting to miss out on a good moisturizer and eye cream during sticky summer months as your skin will be producing more sebum, generating that recognizable ‘summer shine’ and clogging pores, but your skin still needs serious moisture. Replace heavy winter, oil-based creams with lighter, oil-free or water-based serums or emulsions.

Make water your best friend

At least 8 glasses of water are needed. If possible, carry a water bottle with you and remember to drink at least once every 30 min. Water not only helps you feel fresh, but it also prevents dehydration and will help wash out a lot of toxins.

Use Sunscreen

Your skin is your largest organ and has essential functions such as guarding your body against germs as well as helping to regulate your body’s temperature. While your skin also offers your body protection from the sun’s rays, that doesn’t mean you should go out without giving your skin proper protection in return. Without sunscreen, your skin is vulnerable to a host of problems. Sunscreen is the easiest way to protect yourself from the sun's dangerous rays. Sunscreen protects your skin from the harmful and damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays.
