It still is summer time, and the heat is leaving everyone in bad mood at some parts of the day. And it’s even more upsetting when we feel the heat in the literal sense and it shows on our skin: we develop rashes of many kinds, and on top of having an already dry skin, we feel a noticeable itch on various parts of our skin and that ultimately leaves us on the edge. Well, you can’t just wish for summer to end. Many good things happen only at this time of the year! You just wish to skip this annoying part of the summer instead and have that hassle-free skin back. So here are some easy and definitely useful tips that will help you and your skin get through the summer and escape the negative effects of its intense heat:
1. Avoid the sun during high intensity hours
The sun's rays do the most damage between 10 am and 4 pm, so limit the time you spend outside during this period. If it can’t be helped and you would really need to go out at this time of the day, don’t forget to apply sunscreen with an SPF not below 15.
2. Clean your skin regularly
Just because you have no reason to go out of the house doesn’t mean you should skip your daily bathing ritual even for just a day! Cleansing is an important part of skin care because it removes dirt and bacteria, and the way to do it is through a gentler way, so use mild rather than strong soaps and avoid irritating additives such as perfumes and dyes, especially if you have sensitive skin. Also, if you have dry skin, avoid alcohol-based products for it will only hasten the skin-drying process.
3. Invest on quality skincare products
Using a product that is dubiously “affordable” but guarantees all kinds of skin protection might probably be not a good idea. Invest on products that are on reasonable prices but has a precedent of good reputation and positive reviews from other users. And especially now during summer where hypersensitivity of the skin is heightened due to the intense heat, use a product that especially targets symptoms of atopic skin. Bioderma Atoderm Intensive Soothing Emollient Care restores the integrity of the skin barrier, prevents the penetration of allergens and enhances suppleness and comfort. Atopic and dry skin can be extremely irritable, itchy and uncomfortable, so massage this onto skin as needed. This is suitable for all ages and is hypoallergenic, non-sticky and has a delicate fragrance.
