Why is it important to take care of the skin in summer? Dermatology 05/07/2022
Care for our skin
With the arrival of good weather, we want to wear cooler and lighter clothes, revealing areas of the skin that remain covered during the rest of the year. The skin must be cared for throughout the year, but it is in the summer when the needs of our skin change and we have to pay more attention to it.
Excessive sun-exposed skin without any protection can lead to dermatological health problems in the future. Among the most visible consequences we have: appearance of wrinkles, spots, moles or burns. In the long term, skin cancer is the main consequence of exposing the skin to the sun's rays without protection.
What can I do to take care of my skin during the heat?
Sunscreen is your best ally.
It should not be used exclusively to go to the beach. You always have to protect yourself, whether it's going for a walk in the park, around the city or a hike in the mountains. Make sure you choose a protector made with natural and organic products that do not harm your body.
Hydration, the must to take care of your body from within.
In these hot months, either in typical temperatures of this time of year or in the middle of a heat wave, the body needs to be hydrated. Drinking water and eating fresh foods like fruits or vegetables will help keep our bodies hydrated. Drinks with a high alcohol content or carbonated drinks will quench our thirst for a moment, but they will not help our body to stay hydrated. It is not bad to have a soft drink, but not that our hydration depends exclusively on them.
Avoid going outside in the "peak hours" of the sun.
In the central hours of the day is when there is more solar radiation. If you have to be outside during these hours, it is advisable to cover yourself with a cap or hat, in addition to sunscreen.
Clean the skin.
Creating a cleansing routine for the skin will help us eliminate impurities and possible future problems.
Thus, it is important to take care of the skin throughout the year, but especially at this time. Choosing quality products and following these tips will help us make our skin look healthy and cared for. The skin is the first protective layer of our body and it is the one that protects us from external aggressions
