Summer and our skin health

As we approach the summer season, we feel the effect of the sun more. Sunlight, together with the holiday environment, relaxes and relaxes the person. However, in recent years, due to the depletion of the ozone layer, we have been discussing the sun, which has thousands of benefits, because of its harm rather than its benefit. Undoubtedly, the biggest damage is the significant increase in skin cancers, especially in the type called melanoma.

Another effect of photoaging is the formation of deep lines and wrinkles and rough skin structure on the skin as a result of long-term exposure to the sun. There is also an increase in the number of age spots and skin cancer precursors.

In addition to the long-term effects of the sun, there are also skin diseases that increase due to the increase in temperature with the arrival of the summer season. Sun allergies, sunburns, fungal diseases, rash, itching are some of them.

Due to the water loss in the body and the increase in the habit of bathing due to the increasing heat in the summer months, the skin becomes dry. Especially in the arms and legs, the dryness of the skin is more pronounced. The increased dryness causes itching and eczema over time.

Since the sun also causes enlargement in the capillaries, capillary varicose veins increase in the summer months.

As a result of excessive sweating, rashes and rashes may increase as a result of clogged sweat glands, especially in areas that do not breathe and are exposed to friction (armpits, groins, etc.). The increase in acne and oiliness creates other skin problems.

Another disease that increases proportionally with sweating is fungal diseases. It is especially seen in areas that do not receive air. On the trunk, the fungus called “tiena versicoler”, which is seen in the form of spots, increases in number.
