Common Summer skin Issues and How to Prevent It

Want to make trips to beaches and enjoy fun outdoor sessions in the summer? However, summer comes with a lot of skin issues, making you want to sit at home and miss the fun.

Due to the harsh sun rays and increase in humidity, our skin becomes vulnerable to damage barrier and skin dryness. This is why we need to level up our skincare game in the warmer months. So, let’s look at some common skin issues and see how to prevent them.

Common Summer skin issues:

Dryness/ dehydration

The rising temperature and exposure to the sun can lead to loss of moisture from your skin making it dry. Despite the high moisture content in the air during summer, sweating will make you lose water which affects your skin health.

How to prevent it

Use a gentle cleanser that will not strip your skin barrier. Hydration is a must inside and out so drink plenty of water. Also, use hydrating toners and layer them multiple times to boost skin hydration. In addition, use a lightweight moisturizer to lock in moisture. And remember to avoid long, hot showers.

Acne breakouts

How to prevent it

First thing, don’t pick your blemishes, as they can worsen the case and leave scars. Use a cleanser with salicylic acid which helps get rid of excess oil. Use oil-free products- skincare, makeup. Also, exfoliate once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells.
