How Does the Heat Damage Your Skin?

Skin Cancer Protection

Best Pinecrest Skin Doctor

Miami Florida is known for its many beaches and scorching sun, and no matter how many times people say to wear sunscreen, people continue to leave their house unprotected. If you knew what the heat does to your skin, would you wear sunscreen more often? It should!

The type of damage that heat does to your skin can create long term and short term issues such as:

  • Dry Skin: The heat makes the skin appear dry and flaky as well as wrinkled on your face and body. Your dry skin can cause you to scratch it and make it worse. The Best Pinecrest Skin Doctor offers amazing treatments, services, and products to help soothe your dry skin.
  • Sunburn: A sunburn causes redness and pain on the skin you have exposed. Sometimes, sunburns can create blisters that are extremely painful as well as cause nausea and dizziness.
  • Actinic Keratosis: This small bump that appears on your skin feels like sandpaper or like a patch of scaly skin that is either pink, yellow, red or brownish tint. This can be the size of the pimple, and is rarely itchy or slightly tender.
  • Skin Collagen Changes: A few collagen changes that will occur includes fine lines, deep wrinkles, thicker skin texture as well as easy bruising on sun-exposed areas.

Besides the list above, there is an even worse damage that can be caused by the heat and the sun. Skin Cancer. Skin cancer is extremely common, and is caused by the sun exposure, which can be avoided by proper hydration as well as sunscreen use. Sunscreen might be a pain to apply, but it take just a few minutes and it can make all the difference in the world.

The damage that the heat does to your skin can be easily avoided by protecting your skin with sunscreen. If you have any of the skin issues above, call Best Pinecrest Skin Doctor, Dr. Longwill, to ask any questions you have or to request any treatments or products that can help your damaged skin.
