Optimising Summer Skin Care with Expert Advice from Dr. Thuva Amuthan

Summer’s arrival brings the joy of sunny days but can also exacerbate skin issues such as eczema, vitiligo, prickly heat, and sunscreen sensitivities. Dr. Thuva Amuthan from Dr. Derme Clinic shares invaluable insights on managing these conditions to ensure your skin remains healthy and vibrant throughout the season.

Comprehensive Summer Skin Care Tips

Managing Acne in Summer

Increased temperatures and humidity can lead to worsened acne conditions. Dr. Amuthan advises, “To combat summer acne effectively, cleanse your face twice daily to clear surface impurities and maintain clear pores with products containing salicylic acid. Opt for non-comedogenic moisturisers to prevent clogged pores. Remember to pat sweat away gently to avoid additional irritation.”

Effective Psoriasis Management

“Many find that moderate sun exposure can alleviate symptoms of psoriasis by slowing the rapid growth of skin cells,” notes Dr. Amuthan. However, it’s crucial to avoid sunburn, which can aggravate the condition. Discuss controlled sun exposure with your healthcare provider or consider UVB phototherapy as a safer alternative.

Vitiligo and Sun Sensitivity

Vitiligo makes the skin particularly sensitive to sun damage due to the lack of melanin. “It’s essential to use high SPF and broad-spectrum sunscreens and wear protective clothing,” recommends Dr. Amuthan. Staying in the shade during peak sun hours can also help manage the condition effectively.

Dealing with Prickly Heat

Prickly heat can be a painful irritation during hot and humid conditions. “Keep the skin cool and reduce sweating by staying in air-conditioned environments or using fans. Lightweight, breathable clothing can help prevent sweat ducts from becoming overloaded and clogged,” suggests Dr. Amuthan.
