While summer brings with it sunny days and outdoor adventures, it also brings challenges for the skin. Sun exposure, heat and humidity can significantly affect the health and appearance of our skin. From protecting against harmful UV radiation to combating excess sebum and heat irritation, there are many things to consider to keep skin healthy and hydrated in the hot season.

Why does your skin need special care in the summer season?

It is important to take care of your skin in the warm season for many reasons, one of the most important being the action of UV rays themselves. The sun emits ultraviolet radiation that can cause skin damage, from sunburn to signs of premature ageing and increased risk of skin cancer. In addition, high temperatures and sun exposure can dehydrate the skin, leading to dryness, tightness and even flaking. In the hot season, skin is more prone to acne – high temperatures, sweating and humidity in summer can stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum. This excess oil can clog pores and encourage acne.

In the warm season, outdoor activities increase, which can expose skin to pollutants, allergens and other environmental impurities. These substances can irritate and sensitize the skin. All the more reason to take better care of your skin.

Skin care tips for the warm season

There are a few things you can do to make sure your skin will be protected against environmental factors in the warm season:

  • Use products with UV protection: By regularly applying such products with sun protection factor (SPF) you can protect your skin against these harmful effects.
  • Gentle skin exfoliation: In summer, skin can become more sensitive due to sun exposure and heat, so it is recommended to reduce the frequency of exfoliation. An exfoliation once or twice a week might be enough to remove dead skin cells and keep skin glowing.
  • Moisturizes skin well: Replace the richer, heavier moisturizer used in winter with a lighter, less oily one to allow skin to breathe during warm days. After sunbathing or swimming, apply a moisturizer to rehydrate skin and prevent over-drying.
  • Drink plenty of water: Inner hydration is just as important, so make sure you drink an adequate amount of water every day. Adequate water consumption is essential for keeping your skin hydrated in summer.

Skin problems in the warm season

If you don’t take care of your skin in the warm season, you risk facing various problems such as premature skin ageing. UV radiation from the sun can damage collagen and elastin in the skin, which can lead to wrinkles, fine lines and sunspots, contributing to premature skin ageing. Moreover, sun exposure can lead to hyperpigmentation, which manifests itself as dark spots on the skin.

Moisture and sweating in summer can clog pores and lead to the appearance or worsening of acne. Skin can also be more prone to fungal and bacterial infections in hot, humid environments. Last but not least, heat and sun exposure can dehydrate the skin and cause irritation, itching and flaking.

In conclusion, skin care during the warm season is essential to maintain skin health and beauty in the face of the challenges brought by sun, heat and humidity.
