Summer is the time to unwind and spend days outdoors, enjoying fun activities with friends and family. Unfortunately for some, however, summer is also a time for combatting skin issues brought by the heat.
But don’t let your skin woes weigh you down and take away the enjoyment of basking under the sun and having fun! Ahead, we share how common skin issues that occur during summer and how you can face them head on.
Perhaps the most common issue experienced when the sun’s rays are harsher than normal, sunburn can target just about anyone. But you’ve already probably heard of the age-old saying, “Prevention is better than cure.” So do just that when it comes to your skin. Slather on sunscreen and reapply as needed. If you happen to have forgotten, though, and are already suffering from the burn, soothe your skin with the help of an aloe vera gel. Once the burn is healed, exfoliate and moisturise.
There are many reasons why a person would get a pimple breakout, and one of them is the skin’s reaction to sweat. The heat can cause one to sweat excessively, so those who are prone to getting pimples because of sweat will find summer a season of more breakouts. If you happen to face this problem, try switching your regular body wash with one that contains tea tree oil as an ingredient. Do the same for your face.
