Skin Care Tips for Summer By Dr. Sneh Thadani

With Temperatures rising so are the needs of your skin.

Commit to your skin: largest organ of your body.

The heat and humidity of summer can take its toll on your body and it can also be harmful to your skin if you don’t take the proper precautions.

what does sunscreen do?

Excess heat increases sweat production and the humidity hinders its ability to evaporate away from the skin. This means more oil is available to clog pores which can exacerbate acne. Also, extreme heat and humidity can facilitate bacterial infections such as impetigo and fungal infections like athlete’s foot or intertrigo, which are rashes seen in body folds. This is a time of year a lot of patients who battle those conditions become very uncomfortable.

What can people do to keep their skin healthy during this time of year?

Nothing is more important than wearing sunscreen (ideally, SPF 30) every day. I also always recommend a sunscreen with antioxidants to counteract free radicals created by the sun’s rays. In addition to topical antioxidants, oral antioxidants such as Vitamin C, CoQ10, and foods high in antioxidants such as pomegranate and blueberries play a huge role in skin health. We now know that ingested antioxidants reduce inflammation, reduce free radicals and there is emerging data that they may even help stop pigmentation of the skin.

All patients with dry skin should avoid harsh foaming cleansers which remove hydrating lipids from the skin. Hot water should be avoided and humidifiers are often helpful. We also recommend twice daily moisturizer application, preferably ones containing ceramides, or humectants which will pull water into the skin. Propylene glycol, urea, panthenol, lactic acid are all examples of humectants.

For oily patients, our goal is to reduce sebum production with retinoids such as Retin-A to unclog pores with retinoids, alpha, and beta hydroxy acids.

Is there one product that everyone should use, regardless of skin type?
