Protect Your Skin From Dubai’s Summer Weather, Here’s How
Paying extra attention to your skin is necessary, whether you’re battling high humidity days or the scorching dry heat. Read on and learn some handy tips from our Skincare Specialist at Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group in Dubai Healthcare City, on how to take care of your skin during Dubai’s year-round summer weather.
1. Hydration is Key
In Dubai’s hot and arid climate, staying hydrated is crucial for your skin’s health. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Nutrition and nourishment are also important. Your skin reflects your diet, so make positive changes and doing so can help you beat the negative effects of heat on your skin.
2. SPF is your BFF
Sunscreen is your skin’s best defense against the harmful UV rays of the sun while in the UAE. Make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 50 such as SkinCeuticals Ultra Facial UV Defense Sunscreen with high protection against UVA/UVB. Reapply your sunscreen on exposed areas every two hours under the sun.
3. Don’t Forget To Moisturize
Hydration shouldn’t stop at drinking plenty of water. According to Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group’s Skincare Specialist, a course of hydrating facial treatment such as SkinCision By Allen Rezai MD’s Bespoke OxyGeneo ‘Hydrate’ Treatment can significantly help in preparing your skin against the harsh weather. In combination to this, products such as SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture and Hydrating B5 are also essential to hydrate your skin and protect it when the weather is hot. These SkinCeuticals favourites are carefully formulated with multi-functional ingredients that hydrate and nourish all skin types.
4. Embrace Lightweight Skincare & Makeup Products
In the hot and humid climate of Dubai, heavy skincare and makeup can clog your pores and lead to breakouts. Make sure to opt for lightweight, oil-free, and non-comedogenic products that won’t feel heavy on your skin.
5. Wear Protective Clothing and Accessories
Prolonged exposure to heat can cause your skin to lose moisture rapidly. That is why it is essential to wear appropriate clothing when spending time outdoors. Make sure to wear protective clothing like hats, sunglasses, and long-sleeved shirts will help shield your skin against the sun’s harmful rays. You can also seek shade whenever possible, especially during peak sun hours.
Taking care of your skin during Dubai’s summertime can be challenging for your skin but it shouldn’t make you break a sweat with the right skincare routine and protective measures. Talk to our Skincare Specialist at Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group for a thorough consultation to determine the correct skincare products and treatments that would keep your skin radiant, healthy, and protected.
