Dealing with Eczema in Summer Weather

It’s lovely that summer is here and we can all enjoy some time outdoors. If you suffer from eczema though, the warm weather can bring some challenges. Here are some tips to help you look after your skin during the summer months.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water is important for everyone in the heat, but if you have eczema it can make a big difference. Drinking water hydrates your skin which will hopefully leave you feeling less itchy and avoid an eczema flare-up.

Rinse off if you get Sweaty

Under the skin’s layers, you need to be hydrated, but on the surface, you should be dry and cool. So, if you find yourself getting sweaty the best thing to do is have a tepid shower. Then dry yourself thoroughly and put on some fresh clothes. Try to wear materials that let your skin breathe like cotton or linen.

Keep the Dust Down at Home

Dust makes allergies worse, so it’s important to keep it to a minimum. If you have tiled or wooden floors dust removal is easy. All you need to do is give the floor a wipe every day. If you have carpets you’ll need to hoover regularly. Pick a hoover with a HEPA filter and use the attachments to get rid of dust on furniture and curtains.

Watch the Humidity

Hot weather can also mean high humidity which can make you sweat. If you can, invest in a portable dehumidifier to use during the winter months too. Dehumidifiers take out the moisture from the air so that allergens don’t multiply.

Take Care in the Sun

The sun might trigger eczema flare-ups for some sufferers. Sun cream will give you some protection, but you’ll need to use one that’s specially designed for sensitive skin. That way the cream will be soothing and give protection.

Microdermabrasion treatment – What is it?

Microdermabrasion, meaning literally ‘small skin wearing away’ is an intense exfoliating treatment that uses tiny crystals to buff away the very outer layer of skin cells to reveal the fresh, new skin beneath. SkinBase microdermabrasion treatment also benefits from a vacuum action which stimulates the micro-circulation and increases blood flow to the treatment area.

How to manage acne in the warmer, summer months…

We all suffer from acne breakouts from time to time, regardless of age or sex. One thing we are often asked about is why acne symptoms are worst in summer. While there can be many contributing factors, one key reason is that people with oily skin tend to suffer more heavily with acne, and oil production is at its highest in summer, hence – a higher likelihood of acne. In this blog, we explore how you can prevent outbreaks during the warmer, summer months.
