Taking Care Of Your Skin in Hot Weather

Summer is fast approaching, and with it comes the warm temperatures and days out by the pool that we all look forward to. But also with summer and the warm rays of the sun come the impact on your skin, including acne and increased UV exposure. Because of this, it is important to protect your skin through hydration and nourishment.

When exposed to warm weather, skin has more of a tendency to develop breakouts. Take the proper precautionary measures to prevent this from happening, as no one likes acne flare-ups. Face washes that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide can help prevent and treat hot-weather breakouts. Exfoliating will help rid your skin surface of dead cells and clogged pores.

Sunscreen is very, very important for your skin, even if it is not hot or sunny out. But when it is hot out, sunshine is usually more common and it’s important to protect your skin from UV rays. Sunscreen should be applied every 2 hours, or more depending on what activities you are doing in the sun, whether it is laying out or swimming. A higher SPF provides more protection for a longer amount of time, but sweating off the sunscreen is always possible.

Sweating is also something that could cause skin issues, as heat rash could occur. Washing your body frequently can help prevent perspiration build up, resulting in a rash. Make sure you use a gentle cleanser that won’t dry out or irritate your skin.

Hydration goes hand in hand with sunscreen when it comes to protecting your skin. Keeping your body well hydrated from the inside out can prevent it from being vulnerable to the dry summer heat. Use an oil-free, daily moisturizer to prevent dehydration on hot days.
