Everyone loves the sunshine. It makes you feel happy, energised and of course it’s fabulous for that tan.
However, it is incredibly easy for your skin to become damaged when living in Dubai because of the soaring temperatures and scorching summer heat.
Below we explore what you need to know about sun damaged skin, quick fixes you can do at home, and the benefit of facial treatments to treat sun damaged skin.
What you need to know to protect your skin
It is incredibly easy to get sun damaged skin. However, there are certain precautions that you can take to protect your skin.
When you plan to spend any time in the sun you must apply suncream. Preferably with an SPF of at least 30 or higher. Keep applying it throughout the day.
It is incredibly easy to become dehydrated when out in the heat of summer. When you are dry, your skin is dry. Always carry a water bottle with you and take regular sips to keep hydrated.
Love the shade
When possible, stay in the shade and try to take regular breaks in the shade during periods of intense heat. It’s also advisable to keep your skin covered to avoid sunburn. Carrying an umbrella around for shade isn’t a bad idea either!
Quick fixes you can do at home
If you are unlucky and become mildly sunburned, then there are a few things you can do at home to ease your symptoms.
Yogurt is a wonderful natural remedy that can be applied directly to the skin to soothe and reduce redness.
Running a cool bath can also help soothe skin, as can applying a cold compress (frozen peas work well.
Quick fix facial treatments
