The Hidden Health Risks of Summer

While summer is synonymous with fun and freedom, it also presents several health risks. Prolonged sun exposure is very dehydrating to the skin and we all need to be more aware of the dangers of skin damage from ultraviolet (UV) rays. These risks are particularly pronounced for women, due to hormone fluctuations causing an increase in skin sensitivity. 

An interesting Dutch study in 2017 revealed 42% premenopausal women experienced increased skin sensitivity just before and during their period and 32% of perimenopausal and postmenopausal women also noticed increased skin sensitivity. This may mean that at different phases of womanhood your skin may be more susceptible to burning when exposed to the sun, heat rash, pigmentation and spots.

The Elevator and Summer Skin

Vitamins and minerals with antioxidant properties are crucial in combating the damage caused by free radicals. They help neutralise these harmful molecules, thereby protecting skin cells from oxidative stress. Vitamins A, C, E, and the mineral selenium act as summer antioxidant super heroes playing a pivotal role in protecting sun-kissed skin.

Vitamin A is essential for maintaining healthy skin and has a role to play in cell turnover and repair, helping to renew sun-damaged skin. Additionally, vitamin A helps to regulate sebum production, reducing the risk of acne outbreaks which tend to be more prevalent in hot, humid weather. The last thing you need is a spotty outbreak on your summer hols.

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that supports collagen production, a protein vital for skin elasticity and firmness. If you suffer from heat rash which is driven by a histamine reaction to hotter temperatures causing itchy hives then vitamin C and calcium work as a tem to help mop up histamine and calm down inflammation, giving your skin a chance to heal. 

Vitamin E works synergistically with vitamin C to protect skin cells from damage. It is lipid-soluble, meaning it gains access to those deep skin layers to provide long-lasting protection. Vitamin E helps to retain moisture in the skin, soothing dryness and flakiness that’s often exacerbated by sun exposure.

Selenium is a trace mineral and a lesser talked about nutrient for skin health but one that has a valuable role to play during summer months.This little mineral assists in the production of glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme that combats the oxidative damage which enhances pigmentation, aka those ageing brown marks also known as liver spots. Selenium also supports the skin's immune function, supporting the skin's ability to repair and regenerate after UV exposure.

At SISTERLY, we believe that wellness is a holistic journey. By taking The Elevator, you empower yourself to meet the unique challenges of this sunshine season head-on, championing vibrant health and radiant skin all season long.
