The Damages of Summer
Aside from sun damage that’s almost always unavoidable in some respect during summer and dehydration that comes with hot temperatures, sweat and oil production triggers clogged pores and acne breakouts. Moreover, increased sun exposure and ultraviolet damage can contribute to skin discoloration, wrinkle formation and ultimately skincancer. Long times spent in swimming pools actually dehydrate the skin, as immersion in chlorine and water for hours can break down the skin’s barrier. Heat and humidity are also very conducive to fungal and bacterial infections of the skin. And because you’ve also spent more time makeup-free, you’ve also possibly exposed your skin to more pollutants.
