The summer season is here and we need to give extra attention to our skin. Staying out for too long in sunlight can damage your skin and lead to many skin-related issues. Our skin is very sensitive and it needs daily care when the weather changes. In summer our skin becomes more oily and sweaty, that is the reason our skin looks dull in summers.
Here are some summer skincare problems you really need to save your skin from:
Tanning is the most common problem in summer. UV rays cause the skin to produce melanin, which is the pigment that causes tanning. Wearing sunscreen of SPF 30 every day can save your skin from tanning. Wear full sleeve clothes and also you can try a wide-brimmed hat to shield your skin.

During summers, sweat glands get clogged with sweat and dirt, which builds up under the skin, leading to an itchy rash or blisters and which irritates your skin. Wearing loose clothes, avoiding direct exposure to the sun, and a cool compress can help you get rid of rashes or bump.
The inflammation that forms in hair follicles is called folliculitis, which looks like a common pimple, but the bumps are tender and itchier. Taking a cool bath, and eating things which can keep your body can help with this problem. And you can also use non-comedogenic sunscreen.
It is a chronic condition that causes patches of itchiness, redness, and cracking. summers can exacerbate eczema-flare-ups. To reduce the risk of eczema, you should make sure your inner self stays cool. Keep wiping your sweat and add antiseptic liquid to your bathing bucket. Keep your skin moisturised to avoid this problem.
Acne formation is more common if the skin gets clogged with oil and bacteria. If you have acne-prone skin, wash your face properly whenever your skin feels oily or sweaty. Use natural face packs such as Multani mitti, Curd, or paste of cucumber to keep your skin cool and hydrated.
