Common skincare issues during the summer season

Common skincare issues during the summer season

As summers are here, it's important to keep in mind that our skin needs more care and attention during these warmer months. Even though we may be excited to enjoy the warm weather, spend time outside, and soak up the sun, our skin frequently suffers from a variety of issues during this time of year. The summertime may cause havoc on our skin, ranging from sunburn to greasy skin, heat rash to eczema, and inflamed skin, if we're not careful. This blog will talk about these prevalent skincare concerns and what products you can use to keep your skin youthful and glowing throughout the summer.


Common Summer Concerns 

1. Sunburn: Probably the most common summertime skincare concern is sunburn. Extended exposure to the damaging UV rays of the sun can result in redness, discomfort, peeling, and even more serious long-term effects like skin cancer and early ageing. It's essential to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 50 before going outside to prevent sunburn on your skin.

What to use?

  • Sundowner: Infused with ingredients like cucumber extract, mulberry extract and zinc oxide this broad spectrum sunscreen will protect you like a knight in shining armour.  
  • Speed Dial: With ingredients like aloe vera extract, licorice and niacinamide not only this facial mist spray will calm all the irritation while reducing the pigmentation from sun damage.  
  • Vitamin C: 3AM’s vitamin c face serum with vitamin c, tomato extract and lactic acid will hydrate and brighten your skin. It also lightens the dark spots and sun damage while giving a youthful glow. 


2. Oily skin: Summertime humidity and heat can aggravate oily skin, causing clogged pores, breakouts, and an overproduction of sebum. During the summer, use oil-free, lightweight moisturisers and non-clogging cleansers to control oily skin. Using a mild exfoliator as part of your skincare regimen can aid in pore clearing and the removal of dead skin cells. Furthermore, oil-absorbing sheets or blotting papers can help manage shine all day without depriving your skin of moisture.

What to use?


  • Facewash: A gentle cleanser won’t agitate the skin and leave it nourished. A hyaluronic acid facewash will be the best choice to soothe your skin this summer. With ingredients like hyaluronic acid which gives a boost of hydration and lactic acid which gently exfoliates the skin without stripping it of its natural oils.
  • Acne serum: Infused with goodies like alpha arbutin and zinc PCA this niacinamide serum reduces sebum production and prevents acne breakouts due to oily skin. 
  • Exfoliation serum: Formulated with ingredients like AHA, BHA, and PHA this serum is just what you need for the summers to get rid of the dead skin build up and clogged pores. 

 

3. Heat rash: Heat rash is caused when sweat is caught in the sweat ducts of the skin, which causes redness, itching, and little bumps. Keeping your skin dry and cool is necessary to reduce heat rash. Airy, loose-fitting garments made of linen, cotton, or other lightweight materials can be helpful. Chilled showers and the application of calming, anti-inflammatory creams with components like aloe vera can help ease the pain and lessen the sunburn that accompany heat rash.

What to use?


  • Sundowner: With cucumber extract our sunscreen gives a cooling and soothing sensation that helps with the redness, inflammation and sun damage.
  • Speed Dial: The goodness of aloe vera provides hydration while soothing redness and inflammation making this mist the perfect go-to for quick relief from heat rash. 
  • Body lotion: Infused with centella asiatica also known as Gotu Kola this body moisturizer soothes and calms redness and irritated skin. It also nourishes your skin from within, while allowing your skin to breathe.

 

4. Eczema: The hot weather brings eczema, a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterised by red, itchy patches. It happens due to increased heat, humidity, and perspiration. Keeping up a regular skincare regimen is essential to managing eczema in the summer. To hydrate and calm the skin, use mild cleansers and moisturisers without synthetic fragrance. Steer clear of hot baths, as they can exacerbate eczema symptoms and deplete the skin of its natural oils. Avoid products with synthetics fragrances, sulphates, — that cause eczema flare ups.

What to use?


  • Baesic: This super hydrating face moisturiser is infused with niacinamide, tomato, mushroom and aloe vera extract. It deeply nourishes the skin while tackling redness, dryness and providing a soothing sensation. Best part is that it is free of all the nasty ingredients like parabens and synthetic fragrances which irritate the skin. 
  • Speed Dial: This hydrating face mist will give you hydration on the go ensuring your skin is hydrated, calm and free of inflammation. 

 

5. Irritated  skin: Increased sun exposure and higher humidity levels can lead to irritated skin during the summer, leaving it red and inflamed. Steer clear of harsh skincare products that aggravate already-inflamed skin in order to relax and soothe it.  Formulations that are mild and fragrance-free are always a good option. Choose gentle and anti-inflammatory ingredients like niacinamide, aloe vera extract, or centella asiatica that soothe skin during summers.

What to use? 

  • Body lotion: This nourishing body lotion with centella asiatica and hyaluronic acid will soothe the skin and hydrate it giving a calming feeling.
  • Speed Dial: This spray is an ideal solution for providing immediate relief from inflamed skin because of the anti-inflammatory and hydrating properties of aloe vera. 
  • Baesic: The goodness of niacinamide and mushroom extract combats inflammation providing relief and soothing sensation to the skin.
