The warmer weather in summer can wreak havoc on your skin. The heat and humidity can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. A few tweaks to your daily routine can help keep your complexion clear and healthy. Here are the best dermatology tips to protect your skin this summer.

Adopt a Lightweight Dual-Purpose Moisturizer

The heavier creams and cleansers you may use to protect your skin in winter may be too much during summer. Adopt a lightweight, dual-purpose moisturizer that contains sunscreen instead. Make sure that the moisturizer you choose contains a SPF of 30 or higher to protect your skin against summer sunburns and other dermatology concerns.

Apply Sunscreen Frequently

To protect your skin this summer, apply sunscreen every couple of hours whenever you are outdoors. Cover all exposed skin including your hands, feet, lips and ears. You can use your phone to set an alarm to remind you when it is time to reapply.

Limit Showers and Baths

Summer sweat and days at the beach can make you want to bathe more. Over-showering can lead to eczema and inflammation from dry skin. When you do shower, limit your time to around four to five minutes. Keep the temperature of the water at slightly warm temperatures to help prevent potential dermatology issues.

Drink Plenty of Water

Your skin needs proper hydration, especially in the summer heat. Drinking plenty of water helps protect your skin and aids in recovery when you experience sun damage. Make a goal to drink eight glasses a day to help achieve great results for skin.

Protect Your Skin in the Summer with Shade

The best way to protect your skin from dermatology issues in the summer is to stay in the shade as much as possible. Wear protective clothing such as wide brimmed hats, lightweight clothing with sleeves and sunglasses. Bring an umbrella to sit under while you are at the beach or find a spot covered by tree shade.

Protecting your skin is crucial to preventing medical dermatology issues such as skin cancer, psoriasis and eczema.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
