Is this scorching summer heat taking its toll on your skin? Here are some things you can do to help relieve thee uncomfy feeling:
- Protect your skin from the sun. Getting sunburned is such a pain, literally! Apply sunblock especially on exposed areas such as the face, neck, and arms. Keep an umbrella or a hat handy.
- Bring your meds anywhere you go. I always keep a few tabs of Loratadine with me just in case anyone in the family develops hives or rashes. Calamine lotion should also be in the bag to treat the itchies.
- Hydrate and moisturize. Drink lots of water or eat watery fruits and vegetables to keep your skin hydrated. Moisturize your skin with lotion (I recommend a water-based moisturizer during the hot months) to prevent your skin from being dry. Dry skin is more prone to itching.
Here's to welcoming the summer season without the itch!
