How to Beat the Heat and Save Your Skin

by | Nov 15, 2022

The mercury is rising in Australia and that can mean only one thing: it’s time to take off your clothes and enjoy the summer heat. No … really … take off your clothes. “Summer heat is very hard on people with skin conditions as those problems are easily aggravated by sweat,” explains Dr Austin. Clothing traps sweat and keeps it from evaporating. Not only don’t you cool off, but the trapped sweat can also clog pores and make existing skin problems worse. Dr Austin recommends, “Clothing should be light, loose and made of natural fabrics such as linen and cotton.”

Dr Austin also recommends a visit to our Sanctuary medispa for a personally guided tour of evidence-based treatments and take-home skin care products … plus a free gift!

Calm and Protect Inflamed Skin with This

Make Austin Skin Calm and Protect your go-to serum if you are troubled by skin that is inflamed and sensitive. Rosacea, in particular, can be helped by this serum’s proven active ingredients including zinc oxide, hyaluronic acid, peptide, Vitamin B3, and more. Patients troubled by red psoriasis patches find this product effective and, just as importantly, gentle on inflamed skin.

Help for Your Skin without Hurting Animals

Another great ally in the fight against redness is Austin Skin Redness Relief. “And if you’re an animal ally, you will appreciate that this moisturiser is vegan,” adds Dr Austin. As with all the products in the Austin Skin range, Redness Relief is formulated with all-natural active ingredients that are good to your skin, including hyaluronic acid, cucumber seed oil, jojoba seed oil, and chamomile extract. While Redness Relief is suitable for all skin types, it is particularly beneficial for people whose skin is sensitive and prone to redness.

A Cleanser to Support Summer Skin Beauty

Skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis can leave skin dry, inflamed and sensitive to many ingredients. The last thing you want is to add insult to injury by using a soap-based cleanser. Instead, you can nourish and soften your skin with Gentle Cleanse. Say good-bye to soap and hello to lactic acid, Vitamin B5 and aloe vera. These, along with other powerful, yet gentle ingredients will leave your skin soft, smooth, and supple.
