Summer is quickly moving on to autumn and now is the time you need to pamper your skin from the effects of summer’s heat, sun and even air conditioning. Sun feels awesome on your skin, but when the summer sunsets in, so does the heat, UV rays and air conditioning, all of which make your skin sensitive, dry, and uncomfortable.
The heat of summer is welcome, but hot weather increase water loss from the skin leading to dehydration. Dehydration can cause the skin to be irritated, red, and dry. Summer heat tends to bring on a sweat, more oil, and speedier skin cell production. When dead skin cells mix with excess oil and sweat, you can experience pesky acne breakouts.
You know that staying out in the sun too long can damage your skin’s moisture barrier. Excessive sunshine can cause premature aging, lost elasticity, and dryness, but did you realize that you don’t need to be directly in the sun to experience the sun’s damaging effects? Sun rays can reach your skin through the glass in your car and breakthrough clouds on a cloudy day. Don’t forget the SPF and moisturizer on road trips, and if you spend summer by the sea, water can mean double trouble for your skin. Bouncing UV rays reflecting off the water, salty water on your skin, and not drinking enough water can cause skin problems.
Air conditioning is nice when the sun is blaring down, but air conditioning is irritating to your skin. Yes, those awesome days when you are in your air-conditioned home or office can cause your skin to become tight and dehydrated. Air conditioning pumps dry and cold air into a room and reduces the humidity levels. A good level of humidity indoors should be around 30-50% to keep your skin feeling plump and happy, but this is not always the case with air conditioning.
Many sun worshipers neglect one of the most important expenses of the summer, and that is sun protection. While you are having fun outside on those gorgeous sunny summer days, the ultraviolet rays from the sun are damaging your skin, causing sunburn, wrinkles, unsightly sunspots, and at times skin cancer.
How to Combat the Effects of Summer Sun
Hot temperatures and humidity dry out your skin and sweat can clog your pores. Constant sun exposure can cause freckles, melasma, pigmentation problems, abnormal moles, and skin cancer. Thankfully, treatments are available that target dull complexions, wrinkles, dark spots, and everything else your skin suffered in the summer sun.

Chemical peels professionally done at Samara MedSpaCT smooths and improves the feel of your skin.

Regenerated skin after a chemical peel is smoother and less wrinkled than your pre-summer skin.
Red light therapy bed is aimed to solve skin issues by using low wavelength red light. Red light therapy can help with skin conditions, scarring, and signs of aging. Red light therapy is natural and penetrates deep into the skin where cells absorb and use light energy. Seminars at Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery note that the mitochondria in the skin cells absorb these light particles and produce more adenosine triphosphate or the energy source for all cells.
