Summer Skin Problems You Can Prevent

Summer is finally here and for many people, it can mean an extra set of skin problems to go along with their planned summer vacation. Taking a few extra precautions will put the ease of mind and body back into your summer days.

Early Detection for Skin Issues
Planning a checkup at the Medical Aesthetic Center in New Jersey before summer activities means catching any potentially dangerous moles or spots. It’s important to address early skin issues before prolonged exposure to the sun. At the Medical Aesthetic Center in New Jersey, we offer free consultations about skin care, contact us to book an appointment. 

Curb the Burn
One of the most impactful ways to protect your skin is to avoid sunburn. One single sunburn can increase the risk of skin cancer due to the ultraviolet radiation your skin absorbs from the sun. Avoid peak sun rays from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and always apply a broad-spectrum protection 30+ SPF sunscreen.

Summer Acne

While acne can be a year-round issue, one might experience a surge in acne over the summertime. Make sure to use a facial SPF moisturizer, as the face is more prone to irritation from body products. To avoid sweat and bacteria clogging your pores, blot sweat away with a clean cloth and wash the cloth after using. For help tackling stubborn acne, Medical Aesthetic Center in New Jersey offers effective acne treatments.

Insect Bites and Stings
Not only are bug bites bothersome and uncomfortable, they can trigger allergic reactions and some infections as well. While it can seem impossible to escape outdoor insects, there are a few things you can do to try to prevent these outdoor pests. Wearing tight-fitting long sleeves and pants and tucking your pants into your socks when venturing through high grass can prevent bugs from crawling under your clothing. Using an insect repellent with 20 to 30 percent DEET will also help keep those pesky (and dangerous) bugs away.

The best way to protect your skin is preventative and attentive care. Contact us today to get your skin summer ready with products and treatments made to protect your skin.
