How the Summer Heat Can Impact Your Skin

With the high temperatures of a Texas summer, it’s no surprise that we do a lot of sweating. Sweat brings on the overgrowth of skin yeast. That yeast brings on pityrosporum folliculitis, also known as summer’s acne. When you pair this acne with the sun’s summer rays, you often get bothersome dark marks. Sweat can also mix with ingredients in makeup, sunscreen, and moisturizers to clog your pores. This can be remedied by drying off a sweaty face, avoiding heavy moisturizers, and using dermatologist-approved sunscreens. Products like IDSIN’s Eryfotona Actinica can protect and repair your skin from sun damage. This award-winning sunscreen is available at Collins Advanced Dermatology Institute and gives your skin a new chance!

Whether you live in the relatively dry heat of Dallas or the extreme moisture of Houston, your skin can be severely dry in the summer. Very dry skin can worsen cases of acne and eczema, but the solution is simple: moisturize! With the help of Uradin Lotion 10, you can relieve your skin’s summer tightness and dryness.

The skin is one of your most sensitive organs as it is your body’s first line of defense against the outside world, so always be careful when using new products. Combining new products with the fierce Texas summer could do your skin more harm than good. If you have questions about ISDIN or other products to help your skin in the heat, contact one of our providers at Collins Advanced Dermatology Institute. Be especially careful in the summer sun, make sure you know how to give yourself a skin cancer screening between regular screenings with your provider!
