Summer Skin and Hyperpigmentation

 Those first few days of sunny weather might be great news for your social calendar but not so much for your skin, especially if uneven pigmentation, dark spots, melasma or dry skin are already a concern. Hyper-pigmentation and skin dryness  worsen during the summer months.

Sun exposure triggers the production of skin pigment, melanin. Along with that, excessive heat  triggers skin dryness and inflammation. Therefore, your sunscreen may not be able to protect you fully and you need a moisturizer as well.

How to manage?

  • Wearing a high factor sun screen  lotion with high SPF (15 and more)
  • Using light water based moisturisers and  creams with in built sun protection
  • Covering your skin including face, arms and legs, when you are out
  • Incorporate a daily skincare routine that will leave your skin feeling healthy and rejuvenated.
  • Correct course of treatment from a specialist skin care clinic

Taking these simple steps can really help you go a long way in managing your skin pigmentation this summer.
