Medical-Grade Skincare Summer Essentials: Shino Bay’s Guide

It’s Florida summer time and with this comes more sunshine, your skin is more vulnerable to harmful ultraviolet rays, increased humidity and sweat-induced breakouts. It’s important to take extra care of your skin during this season to protect it from these unique challenges.

At Shino Bay Cosmetic Dermatology, we provide a wide range of medical-grade skincare products to cater to your specific needs and ensure the well-being of your skin throughout the year.

In this blog post, you’ll learn what products you need to improve your summer skincare routine.

 

Your Skin in Summer

You may notice changes in your skin during warmer months due to various reasons.

  • Increased Exposure to Ultraviolet (UV) Rays: During the summer, the sun can be very strong and expose our skin to harmful UV rays. These rays are not visible but can go deep into our skin and cause premature aging signs such as wrinkles and sunspots. Moreover, prolonged exposure to UV rays can increase the risk of developing skin cancer, which is a serious concern.
  • Increased Use of Air Conditioning: Air conditioning (AC) units are very helpful during the summer season as they provide relief from the heat. But they can have adverse effects on your skin. AC units remove moisture from the air, which can quickly deplete your skin’s natural hydration levels. This may worsen skin sensitivity and cause it to feel tight and flaky.
  • Increased Humidity: When it gets warmer outside, we sweat more due to the higher humidity and temperature. While sweating helps regulate our body temperature, it can negatively affect our skin depending on its type. If you have dry skin, the humidity can cause even more dehydration by taking away your natural oils. If you have oily skin, sweating can clog your pores and lead to breakouts, making it harder to manage your skin.
