How To Protect Your Skin From A Heat Wave

Although summer is coming to a quick close, the hot weather is not going anywhere. Recently, Los Angeles has been experiencing excessive heat waves due to nearby fires. As some places may even range up to 100 degrees or more, it is crucial to know steps on how to protect your skin.

Sunscreen

It is no surprise that sunscreen is a vital aspect in everyday skincare routine. You should always wear sunscreen when going outdoors no matter what circumstance. As some sunscreens do not have a transparent consistency, MDSUN’S Antioxidant UV Protector SPF50 contains a transparent formula, protects your skin against UV rays, and is perfect for a heat wave crisis.

The main ingredients in this sunscreen are: Zinc Oxide 13.75%, Green Tea Polyphenols, Resveratrol, Emblica, CoQ10, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. As this sunscreen is packed with a variety of vitamins, Green Tea Polyphenols is an amazing antioxidant which contributes well to anti-aging. By not protecting your skin against harsh heat conditions, can cause an increase of wrinkles and long-term damage for your skin.

Clothing

We understand that during this heat wave, you may want to wear comfortable clothing. However, you should wear clothes that cover your body as you want to protect your skin from UV rays. In a heat wave, temperatures are higher than average which can cause for your skin to react in a different way.

Especially when going outside, please be conscious about how often you wear a mask. When wearing a mask, your breathing causes an excessive amount of moisturization. This moisturize makes your skin more prone to break-outs – especially seen in the summer as you sweat more.

Hydration

Finally, hydration is very important for not only your skin, but your body. As heat waves can cause, “heavy sweating, clammy skin, dehydration, tiredness, headache, dizziness, nausea, cramps, and a quick, weak pulse”, you may want to bring a bottle of water with you everywhere. By drinking water, you will not only feel more replenished and energized, but your skin will too. So the next few weeks, please make sure to take care of yourself and your skin!
