In summer, the skin is exposed to levels of UVA rays higher than the rest of the year. That is why we must take more care of the skin at this time of year.
Why do I have to take more care of my skin in summer?
You may have asked yourself this question on occasion, and the answer is very logical. In summer the risks to our skin increase due to prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays that can cause the following problems:
The skin, being exposed to the sun for more hours and receiving a higher impact than at other times of the year, dehydrates more easily. The dehydrating of the epidermis makes it more dull, with a more mature appearance.
In other words, dehydration causes our skin to age.
On the other side we have the increase in humidity caused by excessive sweating. One might think that sweating more hydrates the skin, but this is not the case. This increase in sweating causes the epidermis to become more prone to infections.
Another of the great known of the summer are the spots. If we do not use sun protection, we will leave the skin totally exposed to high temperatures and UVA rays, which causes spots, dryness, and, in the most extreme cases, melanoma.
Oxygen therapy as skin care
Thanks to its excellent effects, oxygen therapy has the regenerative capacity of oxygen in the tissues, which translates into skin rejuvenation. It is also proven that oxygen causes an increase in collagen production.
The benefits of oxygen therapy as a beauty treatment are:
It restores hair growth and color.
It increases the elasticity and brightness of the skin.
It is a powerful generator of natural collagen.
Diminution of wrinkles and potentiation of the growth and hardness of the nails.
We want to make it clear that this treatment does not involve leaving aside skin care such as sun protection. It is always necessary to prevent and take care of our skin.
