Get Your Freshness Back this Summer

Our skin is an important part of the outer shell that we present to the world on a daily basis. Therefore, we want to keep it happy, fresh and healthy. Nevertheless, the relationship with our skin is complicated if anything. The skin is like a child you think you know all about it, but in fact, you know very little as time travels. Our skin is not telling us everything hence we go to doctors, even they have trouble in explaining the sudden growth of bumps and blotches.

At many instances, we think we have got our skin problems sorted, but a breakout or a strange rash pops up leaving us with a lot to ponder over. We always forget that our skin does not have an exclusive relationship with us and the factors that essentially impact our skin’s health is the environment. The biggest problem today is the climate change. Our body, skin and other assets are not reacting in a natural manner because of the changed environment. For years, well-reputed skin care companies are providing individuals with solutions they possibly cannot live without. However, it is crucial to maintain a balanced lifestyle that will work well with solutions offered in the market.

The weather has a pivotal effect on our skin. Whether it is hot or cold, our skin is the first to tell us. In the winter months, our skin struggles with the severe cold and the wind that irritates our face and hands. Also, the dry conditions in the season make our skin lose its natural moisture. Often resulting in red patches and excess dead skin cells that clog pores and cause acne.

Summer is a joyful period for most people because it is viewed as an easy-to-manage period for the skin. The humidity softens the skin bringing back the moisture lost in winter. Some people attribute their improved complexions to increased sun exposure, but for few this turns out to be a nightmare. There is often a high-risk of overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun for people with a fair complexion, causing skin cancer. Also, a greater chance of developing blotches because individuals with fair complexions have less melanin in their skin. Therefore, the sunlight causes their melanocytes to make more melanin resulting in freckles instead of getting an even suntan like people with darker complexions. In this case, freckle cream helps in targeting the unsightly spots left on the skin. Stillman’s Freckle Cream synergizes the skin’s natural self-healing characteristics with the product’s time-tested effect on reducing hyperpigmented lesions and spots safely and discreetly.

Moreover, acne developed in the winters has the potential to get worse in the summer. Primarily the excess of heat and humidity increases the sweat making more oil available to clog pores. Also, summer activities such as swimming have adverse effects on our skin. The chlorinated chemicals can cause a particularly bad form of acne called chloracne. Additionally, sunscreens, while ideal for protecting users from UV rays, can aggravate the skin, which is why many dermatologists recommend oil-free varieties to patients that are prone to acne flare-ups.

Extreme heat and humidity can also facilitate bacterial and fungal infections. A high chance of this happening in summer. Nevertheless, the fortunate enough can stay inside in the air conditioning without realising that our skin probably doesn’t like that much either. Both the air conditioning and central heating can dry the skin. The struggle to create conditions our skin will find favourable can get frustrating. Therefore, we should use products recommended by known dermatologists and produced by companies that provide users with the knowledge of the ingredients found in their products.
