Summer is all about having fun and enjoying some time in the sun! However, that doesn’t mean you should take a break from your skincare routine. In fact, there are some unique skin issues that come along with summer, and it’s important that you stay on top of them.
During the summer, there are a lot of things that can dry out your skin. Increased sun exposure and the chemicals in pool water can lead to the moisture in your skin being pulled away. Increased heat exposure also leads to dry skin. At this time of year, you want to make sure you keep your skin hydrated. Regularly applying moisturizer or lotion can protect your skin’s outer layer so you can retain more moisture in your skin. Applying sunscreen can also protect your skin’s moisture barrier. Because your skincare needs vary with the seasons, we recommend using different moisturizers at different times of the year, depending on your skin’s unique needs.
In the summertime, your skin can become more oily and this leads to an increase in acne breakouts. To handle this, you should adjust your skincare routine. Make sure you avoid any products that could further clog your pores. This includes both makeup and cleanser/moisturizer. Using high quality products is especially important if you are struggling with acne. Always regularly clean anything that touches your face including towels, makeup brushes, pillowcases, etc.
Another common summer issue is heat rash. This occurs when it gets hot and it causes your skin to break out in small bumps that redden the skin. Keep in mind that this is different from acne. To deal with heat rash, you want to counteract the effects of heat with something cool. Taking a cold shower or washing your face with cold water can help. You can also place a cool washcloth on the affected area. For more severe cases, you can also use special creams or other products that are specifically intended to treat heat rash.
As your largest and most exposed organ, your skin deals with a lot. In the summer, you can experience more specific skin issues and you want to make sure you know how to best address them. Take extra care during the summer to give your skin the attention it needs.
