How Summer Has Damaged Your Skin And What You Can Do About It
Summertime means being outside and enjoying lots of fun in the sun, but unfortunately, it also means damage to the skin.
Here are a few of the ways summer has wreaked havoc on your skin and what you can do to begin repairing it:
Sun exposure. While it’s no secret that the sun can cause damage to the skin, it’s mostly unavoidable in the summer months. Aside from causing cancer, exposure to the sun's harmful rays can lead to hyperpigmentation and premature aging.
- Heat. Another one of summer's unavoidable aspects is the heat. Hot weather makes us sweat and leaves our skin oily which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts.
- Chlorine. We all love to cool off in the heat by jumping into the pool and that’s great because, not only is it refreshing on a hot day, but swimming is also great exercise. Unfortunately, being in chlorinated water is very dehydrating to our skin’s cells which leaves skin dry, dull, and flaky.
- Air pollutants. Spending extra time outdoors can expose us to pollutants in the air that can clog pores and age the skin.
