While you will likely be spending more time outside during the summer, you need to be aware of how the sun is affecting your skin. If you are not careful, it can lead to various skin problems.\n\n Razor Burn\n\nRazor burn can occur to men and women, and it can occur more frequently during the summer when people want to shave more often to wear swimsuits. Razor burn typically looks like a red rash. You can apply a cold compress and aloe vera to reduce the visibility of the irritation.\n\n Heat Rash\n\nWhen sweat glands get blocked in the middle of intense heat, it can result in heat rash. This can be incredibly uncomfortable but can be avoided if you get out of the heat as soon as you notice redness developing. You should take a cool bath to clean out pores. \n\n\n Breakouts \n\n\nThe last thing you want before hitting the beach is a breakout of acne. Heat causes your skin’s oil production to increase. Make sure the skin care products you are using will not irritate your skin further. \n\n\n Excessively Dry Skin \n\n\nSome people will have skin that is too oily while others will have skin that is too dry. If you fall into the latter category, then you want to make sure you are showering once a day to moisturize your skin. Constant chlorine exposure can make the problem worse, so make sure you are not spending too much time in chlorinated pools. \n\n\n Hyperpigmentation \n\n\nDark spots can develop anywhere on the body if enough UV rays hit the area. The best defense is to ensure you are wearing enough sunscreen. Apply it evenly over your body, and make sure you get one with the right SPF for your needs.\nWith the right defenses, you can have fun summer without worrying about your skin.
