Summer skin and Hyperpigmentation
Those first few days of sunny weather might be great news for your social calendar but not so much for your skin, especially if uneven pigmentation, dark spots, melasma or dry skin are already a concern. Hyperpigmentation and skin dryness get worsen during the summer months. Sun exposure triggers the production of skin pigment, melanin. Along with that, excessive heat also triggers skin dryness and inflammation. Therefore, your sunscreen may not be able to protect you and you need a moisturizer as well.
How to manage?
- Wearing a sun tan lotion with high SPF (30 and more)
- Using moisturising lotion, creams
- Covering your skin including face, arms and legs, when you are out
- Incorporate a daily skincare routine that will leave your skin feeling healthy and rejuvenated.
- Correct course of treatment from a specialist skincare clinic
Taking simple steps as mentioned above can really help you go a long way in managing your skin pigmentation this summer.
