How to prepare the skin for the heat?

The specialist began to specify that “during the spring, with the change of temperature, like the flowers, the skin also changes and has other requirements, different from those in the winter”.

In a note with colleagues at Infobae, the expert adds: “In the spring, our energy increases because the demands of metabolism increase, so we want to be outdoors, do physical activity, etc.”

For her part, dermatologist Lillian Demarchi (MN 88 365) claims that “everyone wants the skin to look bright, even, without open pores or blemishes. There is no magic or miracles to achieve this. The secret is to have a daily care, take care of the sun and visit the dermatologist to make a personalized plan according to the needs of each skin.


“It’s important to treat our skin before summer hits; this is the time to grow it in depth and, if necessary, to treat it in the office”, continued the specialist.

What to do and what not to do

“Spring is a season of many climate changes, as one day it’s hot with lots of sun and the next it’s raining and windy. Our skin has the ability to perceive all these variations and, just like us, it must go through a process of adaptation to them. That’s why it’s so important to take care of it.”

And listed: “Cleaning should never be skipped. Then, for proper hydration, it is important to consider the texture when choosing creams and serums for the skin in the spring. It is best to choose a cream with a light texture, with moisturizing active ingredients such as glycerin, hyaluronic acid, various plant extracts. In addition, it is important that the cream also contains antioxidants to protect the skin from the effects of pollution, especially in the big city. In this case, vitamin C is a great ally.”


Finally, and never better said “but not least”, sun protection. “Although it is important throughout the year, As temperatures rise, this is even more important. Use at least an SPF of 30, recommended Bace’s medical director. If you’re going to be spending a lot of time outdoors, use factor 50 and boost every two hours.”

“Another essential aspect of keeping skin healthy and hydrated is maintaining a good diet. The consumption of fruits and vegetables provides the body with vitamins, antioxidants and minerals”, added the expert.

According to cosmetic surgeon Duilio Cortella (MN 122.313), “with the arrival of spring and the heat, the skin needs a boost of care.”

Thus, he continued: “Not only those that are related to everyday life, but also the facial procedures that we can perform at that moment. The hot season is also favorable for some procedures that provide the necessary care, cleaning and hydration of the face.”


“In addition to not neglecting rest, summer is ideal for consolidating habits that make the skin of the face look healthier and healthier, since during this season it ages more due to the fact that we expose it to various aggressive factors, which can cause a sharp deterioration of the cells: the sun, sea water, chlorine in swimming pools or sweating – pointed out Cortella-. Let’s remember that skin is not the same depending on the geographical area, the time of year we are in or the age,” he concluded.

In this aspect “protection is fundamental and non-negotiable; “exposure to the sun without proper care can cause spots, wrinkles, sagging, dryness, benign tumors or melanomas,” emphasized the expert.

In turn, he emphasized that “the skin accumulates the successive attacks of ultraviolet rays and the solar capital (hours during which a person can be exposed to the sun in a lifetime without damage) is depleted and this is where skin lesions begin to appear .in the form of dark spots, wrinkles, keratoses and cell damage become irreversible”.


“It is important to continue to maintain the facial routine: exfoliate, moisturize and protect with creams, gels or serum suitable for each person depending on the skin type, because in order to maintain the balance of the metabolism of the facial skin, it must care 365 days a year,” he said.

Dermatologist Paulina Side (MN 35689) agreed with him, who assured: “it is key to explain to patients that they use the highest sun protection factor possible, even on cloudy days when UVA rays, but UV, which are the most dangerous , those that cause dark spots, photoaging and skin cancer”.

It is precisely because of the inevitable greater exposure to the sun that “the products used change when the heat sets in, for example, oilier skin does not tolerate such heavy creams because there is more sebum secretion and it is worth changing to something lighter he explained. Said, for whom the key at this point is to “prep the skin by giving it everything it needs in terms of vitamins.”

For the specialist, “vitamin C is the typical active ingredient that should be used all year round and even more so at this time of year, whether in a cream or a pure serum to be used before the cream”. Following Demarchi, “everyday care is key.” “Undoubtedly, the most important thing is to use sunscreen 365 days a year, which will be the best anti-aging agent.”


In this regard, dermatologist Cristina Pascuto (57 831) said that “although it is important to know that photoprotection is necessary throughout the year, when exposure to the sun begins to be more frequent and more intense, it should be maximal .”

“When we buy sunscreen, we need to know our skin type, because not all people are the same in the sun, it all depends on each phototype,” explained the former president of the Argentine Society of Dermatology and advisor to Eau Thermale Avene. -. And this is determined by the color of the skin, the hair, the tendency to sunburn and the tendency to tan,” he explained.

And he added: “There are many white skins that redden and never turn black, other whites that redden but slightly tan, dull skins that redden but acquire a golden tan, and those that are darker than tan than the beginning of the exhibition. Once the phototype is known, the protection that best suits our natural sensitivity to the sun can be chosen.”

Regarding home care, the dermatologist advised: “When we get up, we must not forget to hydrate the skin with a day cream that is for our skin type. At night we need to cleanse, remove make-up and use an anti-aging cream suitable for all skin types. This cream is most important as the active ingredients will work when the skin is relaxed at night”.

Here, Cortella limited: “To avoid wear and tear and premature aging of the skin, it is important to take into account some basic recommendations related to healthy habits, such as a diet rich in vitamin D, good hydration and rest, and always accompany with routine physical exercises.

Treatment for every need

“We still have time to perform some types of peeling, especially the mechanical ones that have a little inflammatory effect, by dragging and aspiration we can improve the texture, give the skin a glow and improve imperfections and blemishes,” Pascuto began, saying in his explanation ., with whom Saeed agreed: “It’s time to stop doing strong peels, change the treatment approach and work with other types of protocols and focus more on moisturizing and preparing the skin that will receive the most intense treatments. sunlight” .


And although he claims that “there are peeling procedures that can be done all year round”, he clarified that “during these months acid procedures are done with very mild glycolic acids, which leave very little time to do a renewal cell phone and enable asset usage. The skin is not exposed, but cell renewal is nevertheless taking place”.

“In general, peeling is associated with desquamation, and the truth is that


that there are peelings that help with whitening, cell renewal and other more aggressive ones -explained the dermatologist-. Flaking can be imperceptible,” he said.
