Dry Skin in the Summer

Dry Skin in the SummerNow, there is no denying that longer, warmer days are a very welcome change to the, let’s face it, horrendous cold weather we have had to suffer with this winter (and spring!), but with summer comes the unfortunate risk factor for skin.

We’re afraid to admit the sun isn’t all fun and tans. It very often comes at quite a cost for our skin. Sunburn is the most well-known skin condition that appears thanks to the summer sun, but how much do you know about getting Dry Skin in the Summer?

Why does the Summer cause Dry Skin?

Exposing your skin to the sun’s harsh UV rays can cause an array of issues for your skin.

The skin is our body’s largest organ and so it is crucial we treat it with the care it needs during high temperature seasons.

High temperatures are a major part of summer that can be held responsible for the onset of Dry Skin in the Summer. Heat can dehydrate the skin and cause dry skin conditions such as eczema in the form of red pus-filled spots or even blistering, irritated, inflamed patches of skin. Ouch!

If summer brings on elements of high humidity then this can also bring on dry skin problems. Sweat may be a natural cool-down for the body but the salty properties of sweat can dehydrate the skin and cause it to become irritated and very, very itchy.

Exposing the skin to direct sunlight is a cause of dry skin in any climate.  The heat of the sun dries out the skin by reducing the natural oils in the skin, leaving it very dehydrated and in need of moisture.

How to treat Summer Dry Skin

Okay, so we know it is going to be pretty impossible to completely avoid this summer’s much-needed sunshine, so we’re not even going to suggest that as a way to treat Dry Skin in the Summer

You could try washing your skin twice daily with the Syrinx Therapy Bar and lukewarm water to remove perspiration and cool down the skin. Avoid using hot water, as this will increase dryness and skin irritation.

Syrinx Za Hydrating Balm and Ultra-Sensitive Cream are both designed to hydrate dry, cracked skin, leaving it rehydrated and moisturised. Everyone’s skin is different so why not try both to find which works best for you? Alternate between using the balm and the cream twice a day and see results in just two weeks.
