It is time for sunbathing and swimming, but also for the proper care of the skin because these days can be dangerous



During the summer months, taking care of the largest organ of the human body – the skin – should be your main mission when it comes to the preservation of health.


The equation is clear: unprotected skin + sun = burns.

Use SPF 30 with high UVA and UVB protection every day. Before any prolonged sun exposure, visit a doctor as a form of prevention.

“A lot of people do not realize that different drugs may increase your photosensitivity and expose you to greater risk,” says Clifford Perlis dermatologist with Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. Antibiotics and drugs for pressure are especially prone to photosensitivity.Therefore, before each trip to the sea or the pool, consult a doctor about changing some medications.

Fungal infections

At the beginning of the good news: the sun can reduce various inflammation conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. In fact, light therapy is just based on UV rays, which can strengthen your immune system and prevent inflammation.The heat and high humidity cause problems of tropical diseases and fungal infections.Certain body parts, such as feet, armpits and genitals, long retain heat and moisture and are fertile ground for fungi. The best protection against fungi are powders that will help the draining of these body parts.

Dry skin

After exiting the water, straight into the shower. The first body wash with water and soap, then rub it on the skin body lotion as it would quickly dried up.

Summer rash

Once known as a disease of the red face, recognizable by painless swelling in the bone by the pores on your face. Typically caused by heat, moisture and perspiration, and in most cases are completely benign, but can cause unpleasant itching. The best way to reduce them is to minimize sweating. Keep your air conditioning on in summer days, and wear light clothes that moisture could evaporate.

Insect bites

You can cause an infection in the skin with scratching after insect bites. The reaction arises from the toxins that are released by insects. Rub skin with small dose of specialized creams or lotions containing the anesthetic lidocaine to reduce inflammation and pain.

If you have severe symptoms such as fever, nausea, difficulty breathing or swelling, consult a doctor because you probably have an allergic reaction.
