Summer skin needs special care to stay healthy looking and prevent damage. Although we all can derive benefits from the sun’s seductively simmering rays, we have to use care when we’re exposed to it or you can do more harm than good. A sun screen of with UVA & UVB protection of SPF 15 or more is non-negotiable. If you’re in the sun for long periods of time, reapply sunscreen every two to three hours. Pay special attention to areas where the skin is thinnest, like the nose, forehead, earlobes, chest and shoulders. Make sure that you are also paying attention to your lips, where skin is even more vulnerable. Although the sun feels great, stay in shaded areas whenever possible. Wear a hat (there are some really cute ones that can add to your ‘look’), and sunglasses with UV protection to prevent damaged to those precious eyes. All summer skin needs hydration, even oily, acne skin. dermHA’s Therapeutic Crème is a must-have for summer skin care. High concentrations of hyaluronic acid provide skin soaking moisture, while healing aloe, calendula, arnica montana, plus a combo of vitamins help to soothe, calm and protect sun stressed skin.In addition to daily use, apply dermHA’s Therapeutic Crème immediately after prolonged sun exposure to soothe irritation and help prevent peeling. Reapply as often as needed to soothe and moisturize.No matter what your skin color, you will burn if you get too much sun. Symptoms of severe sunburn don’t always appear while you’re in the sun, but usually occur within twenty four hours and usually peaks in two to three days. Extreme reddening, swelling, blisters and pain need immediate care. Dehydration, chills, fever, nausea and/or delirium often accompany severe sunburn and so does dehydration. Avoid the sun completely until the burn is repaired. **Sun Burn Alert– For severe sunburn consult a physician. Sunburn is especially dangerous in children so make sure they’re protected and limited their exposure to direct sunlight. A child having more than two or three serious sun burns will be more likely to develop skin cancer as an adult. Summer Skin Regimen for additional skin protection: **If you take medication ask your physician or pharmacist if it may increase sun sensitivity. Eat raw fruit and veggies as well as protein for tissue repair. Drink plenty of fluids, preferably water. Try to avoid the sun between 10 AM and 3 PM. Cloudy or hazy days have 80% of UV rays passing through clouds- so keep your guard up. Avoid alcohol based fragrance on exposed skin as it could lead to discoloration or heightened skin damage Wear light colored, lightweight, tightly woven material that breathes for maximum comfort. If you are sun burned, avoid further exposure until the skin has healed. Use dermHA Vitamin C Therapy to help repair and protect dry, dehydrated environmentally damaged skin Stay Beautiful,Millie
