If you live near the oceans, seas, rivers or lakes, or are planning a trip near water or mountain peaks, this is the text for you. Your skin is exposed to changes in the environment. There are always certain risks that each new environment carries with it. Due to the interplay of different influences, our skin is particularly at risk.
Sun protection is a necessary part of daily skin care throughout the year. To choose the best skin care product, consult your pharmacist. At enormously low or high temperatures, the sun’s radiation is enhanced, so skin needs special care.
The wind is dangerous for the skin
When we find ourselves in an environment where winds are a common occurrence, the skin becomes dry and less elastic. This detrimental effect of wind can be nullified by the use of appropriate cosmetics. The hidden danger is that under the influence of the wind we think that the sun is not strong. This is why, because of the sun’s intensity, the skin of the face burns.
The beach is a source of entertainment
Skin infections are a common occurrence if you like water and staying in the water. A superficial bacterial infection is called impetigo. It is caused by a bacterium called Beta-hemolytic group A streptococcus or the so-called “golden” staphylococcus. It often occurs in younger children, although it can also be obtained by adults. The development of infection is affected by conditions in which the skin is already damaged: wounds, cuts, eczema, insect bites, burns and the like.
Adequate clothing and footwear
Fighting our skin against adverse climatic conditions is compounded by the tight clothing or footwear we wear and clothing that is not made of natural materials. Enhanced sweating with inappropriate clothing causes rashes, itching or fungal infections. Fully enclosed footwear is suitable for the development of the so-called “athletic foot” and other problems.
The appearance of jellyfish in water
Jellyfish bites cause pain similar to burn pain. Jellyfish poison on the skin creates skin redness, blisters, rashes and swelling on the skin. First aid is rinsing the swelling with salt water (if you have this option). Sprinkle vinegar or lemon juice on the body of the jellyfish outfit. Do not rub your skin. Do not flush the injured area with alcohol. In consultation with your doctor or pharmacist, lubricate the swelling locally with antihistamine. Take some of the recommended antihistamine medications.
The appearance of insects
Bites of mosquitoes, wasps, ticks, bees or hornets are an uncomfortable but common occurrence. Avoid perfumes with sweet notes. Avoid sugary foods. The smell of sweet foods intensely attracts insects. If an insect bite has occurred, consult your doctor or pharmacist regarding the choice of repellent or insect repellent.
Heavy powders and face pads are not suitable for skin exposed to adverse climatic changes. Choose preparations that close the pores on your face. In the evening before bedtime, cleanse your face and apply it with nourishing cream. Do not use peels containing fruit acids.
