Tips to prevent and treat common skin problems
With acne, heat rash and dryness becoming common skin problems during the summer season, make sure to avoid touching the face frequently and carry essentials like hydrating cleanser, moisturiser and hand sanitiser, says an expert.
Kiran Lohia, medical director, Lumiere Dermatology, doles out some tips:
* Heat Rash: Red bumps and itchy rash on the skin is called heat rash. It usually occurs in hot weather. This rash affects almost any area of the body.
Solution: Avoid going out in the sun and try spending most of your time in shade. It will reduce the amount of sweat that you produce thereby, preventing heat rash.
* Acne: Acne is the most common skin problem that men and women around the world suffer from.
Solution: Avoid touching your face with your hands or fingers. Always remove your makeup at night otherwise it will block your pores and lead to more pimples on your skin.
* Skin dryness: Skin needs a lot of care while travelling as you come in contact with pollution, dust, heat and more.
Solution: Pack a small zip-lock bag before stepping out in the sun with essentials including a hydrating cleanser, moisturiser, lip balm, hand sanitiser, hand cream and sunscreen.
