 Summer Skin Concerns & Treatments for Men

During summer, dehydration, long exposure to sunlight and other lifestyle habits can wreak havoc on your skin. 

While a few of these concerns involve simply putting on SPF or drinking a good amount of water throughout the day, others may require the help of clinical facialists and therapists to target certain skin conditions that flare up during summer. These concerns and treatments are applicable for men as well.

What are the common summer skin concerns and treatments for men? Read more to find out.

Top Skin Concerns during Summer

Men, in general, ignore signs of skin concerns but it’s important that they become more aware of their skin health as it could get worse as they age. Here are some summer skin problems that men can experience:

  1. Acne

Even if you are an adult, you can still experience acne problems, especially if you do not always groom your facial hair. Acne breakouts happen when your skin accumulates dirt, oil, sweat and even bacteria and builds up over time.

  1. Fine lines and wrinkles

The signs of ageing can be more obvious during summertime, as unprotected sun exposure can weaken your skin’s elasticity. A moisturising SPF can work to prevent major changes from happening, but sometimes a more elaborate skin treatment would usually do the trick.

  1. Enlarged Pores

During summer, sometimes your skin feels more dehydrated than usual and may overcompensate by producing more oil onto the surface. This can lead to enlarged pores and an even oilier skin type. While sebaceous glands do act as natural moisturisers, excess oil can lead to acne problems later on.

  1. Rough or Dry Skin

Sunburn, swimming pools and your own genetics may play a part in giving you dry or rough skin during summer. For instance, the chlorine found in pools can strip your skin of its much-need moisture, so while you’re looking for a way to cool down from the sun, the pool might also give you dry, flaky skin.
