Summer Skin Care: Tips For Healthy Skin

The Australian summer brings sunny days and beach outings, but it also challenges our skin. While we enjoy the outdoors, it’s crucial to protect our skin from common issues like acne, sunburn, dryness, folliculitis, and heat rash. Here’s an easy guide to understanding and tackling these problems for a radiant summer glow.

1. Acne Troubles: Acne isn’t just for teens; adults face it too, especially in summer due to sweat and sunscreen clogging pores. Use a cleanser with salicylic acid and non-comedogenic products to prevent breakouts.

Prevention: Choose products that don’t clog pores to keep your skin clear.

2. Sunburn Sensitivity: Australian sun can be harsh. Regularly apply non-comedogenic sunscreen, seek shade, and soothe sunburn with aloe vera lotion (avoid alcohol-containing creams).

Prevention: Reapply sunscreen and stay in shade to protect your skin.

3. Dry and Irritated Skin: Long sun exposure can dry your skin. Use fragrance-free moisturizers after showers to retain moisture. Shower with warm water, use mild cleansers, and moisturize regularly.

Prevention: Keep your skin hydrated with regular moisturizing.

4. Folliculitis Worries: Infected hair follicles cause itchy pimples. Use antibacterial lotions and opt for clean swimming spots to avoid folliculitis.

Prevention: Choose clean swimming places to reduce the risk of folliculitis.

5. Heat Rash Challenges: Excessive sweating can lead to itchy heat rash. Wear loose, breathable clothes and maintain hygiene to prevent heat rash.

Prevention: Wear light, loose clothes and stay clean to minimize heat rash.

Regular Skin Checks: Regular skin checks are vital due to Australia’s high skin cancer rates. Camberwell Health offers annual checks with experienced specialists for early detection and prevention.

Prevention: Schedule yearly checks, especially after sun exposure, to monitor your skin’s health.
