In summer, the skin is exposed to higher UVA levels than the rest of the year. That is why we must take more care of our skin at this time of year.
Why do I have to take more care of my skin in the summer?
You may have asked yourself this question on occasion, and the answer is very logical. In summer, the risks to our skin increase due to prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays, which can cause the following problems
The skin, being exposed to the sun for more hours and receiving a higher impact than at other times of the year, dehydrates more easily. The dehydration of the epidermis makes it more dull, with a more mature appearance.
It mean, dehydration makes our skin age.
On the opposite side we have the increase in humidity caused by excessive sweating. You might think that by sweating more the skin is hydrated, but it is not. This increased sweating causes the epidermis to become more prone to infection.
Another of the great summer acquaintances are the spots. If we don’t use sun protection, we leave our skin totally exposed to high temperatures and UVA rays, which causes spots, dryness, and in the most extreme cases, melanoma.
Oxygen therapy as skin care
Thanks to its excellent effects, oxygen therapy has the regenerative capacity of oxygen in the tissues, which results in the rejuvenation of the skin. It is also proven that oxygen causes an increase in collagen production.
The benefits of oxygen therapy as a beauty treatment are
- Restores the hair’s increase and its color.
- Increases the elasticity and brightness of the skin.
- It’s a powerful natural collagen generator
- Reduction of wrinkles and enhancement of nail growth and hardness.
We want to make it clear that this treatment does not involve neglecting skin care such as sun protection. We must always prevent and take care of our skin.
