Why is summer skin care important?
Without the right summer skin care routine, all that fun under the sun can result in dark or damaged skin. That’s why we need to adjust our routine to meet our skin’s changing needs.
The sun’s rays impact the skin in different ways. For example, Ultraviolet A or UVA is the longest wavelength and penetrates your dermis, which is the deepest layer of the skin. UVA rays promote skin aging and activate harmful free radicals.
On the other hand, Ultraviolet B or UVB penetrates the epidermis, or the upper layer of the skin. UVB rays are mainly responsible for sunburn, skin cancers, and allergic reactions.
Aside from the rays, the warm temperatures can also affect your skin. When it’s warmer, the oil glands on your skin become more active. Because your skin is producing more oil, mas malaki ang chance for acne or breakouts.
