The summers can be really harsh for your skin. Not only do they lead to many skin conditions but also demand you to follow a strict skincare regime. The 3 most common summer skin problems are prickly heat, yeast/fungal infection and allergy to UV Radiations.
Prickly heat is usually seen in those parts of the body which are mostly covered. This problem which is also known as heat rash is associated with itching. To avoid it, wear loose and light fabrics, avoid greasy moisturizers and stay in cool environments. Also you can have fruits and vegetables high on Vitamin C.
Fungal or yeast infections are common in groin area, between fingers of hands and toes, under the breasts and other areas. Keep your body dry by tapping it with a cotton towel after bathing and wear loose fabrics. Use anti fungal dusting powders and if itching persists, consult a dermatologist for antifungal cream prescriptions.
Allergy to UV Radiation happens when winters change into springs. It appears as red bumps on arms and other body parts. Use a sunscreen of a SPF of 30 or more to avoid and prevent this condition. You can also wear loose fitting clothes made of light fabrics.
