The summer is upon us and as many people as possible will be heading to the beach this week.
But there’s one thing that can be avoided while you’re there, and that’s the sunburn.
A lot of the time, the sun is not the problem, and this is no different.
The fact is, the beach is full of rays, and those rays are just getting stronger.
There’s no denying that the sun can be a source of stress for many people.
But when it’s time to hit the beach, there are a number of things you can do to reduce the chances of your skin getting scorched, and even the possibility of getting sunburn, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
“It’s very important to avoid the sun during the summer, and not get too tan,” said Dr. Sarah Burd, a dermatologist with the dermatology clinic at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
“If you’re already sunburned, the worst thing you can be doing is wearing sunscreen.
You’re not getting the protection your skin needs to avoid sunburn.”
What you can prevent Getting sunburn is actually a symptom of the problem you’re experiencing.
The good news is that it’s not the sun itself that’s causing the problem.
Instead, it’s the underlying inflammation in your skin that’s leading to it.
In a nutshell, your skin’s immune system has been over-active over the summer and it’s been fighting back.
In other words, it can’t control itself.
This means it needs some kind of help.
The main way it’s getting this help is through the production of inflammatory cytokines called TNF-α and COX-2.
These cytokines trigger your immune system to produce these proteins that can then trigger your own immune system.
This in turn triggers an inflammatory response in your body.
The more inflammation you have in your system, the more likely you are to develop sunburn or sun spots.
The symptoms of sunburn can range from mild, such as blisters and blisters on your face, to severe, such at the skin’s surface, like blisters, scars and peeling.
“Sunburn is really the only thing you want to avoid at the beach,” Burd said.
“But the sun isn’t the only source of irritation.
There are other things that can irritate your skin, like water, sand, pollution and even a lot of people’s skin can get red.”
The best thing you could do to prevent sunburn at the beaches is to be mindful of the beach and the beach environment.
“Avoid getting sunburnt or burning your skin when you’re in the water,” said Burd.
“Be sure to wear a protective face mask when you are in the beach because it can help protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
And also, wear long pants and sunscreen when you walk on the beach.
The most important thing is to stay hydrated, and to drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin and reduce your body’s production of harmful bacteria.”
You should also wear sunscreen when bathing.
The sun is a source for harmful ultraviolet rays, which can trigger inflammation in the skin and trigger your body to produce more TNF and CO X-2 proteins.
And if you’re not hydrated and you’re sunburning, then you could be at higher risk for developing skin cancer.
“There are a lot more things that you can work on at the end of the day,” said Kelly Molloy, a clinical assistant professor of dermatology at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.
“Like avoiding sun exposure and sunscreen.
Just make sure you don’t do anything that makes your skin or your skin products more susceptible to UV rays.
If you don.t, then your skin could get red and blister.
That’s not a good sign.
So, for instance, you can take a shower.
But then it’s best to wear sunscreen.”
The bottom line You can avoid sun damage by following the recommendations above, which will help reduce your risk of developing skin cancers.
But if you’ve got problems with sunburns, like blemishes, sun spots or skin irritation, you should see a dermatology specialist.
“You can definitely prevent skin problems with sunscreen,” Molloyle said.
