With the onset of summer, many owners of problematic skin notice a sudden improvement in its condition. However, in reality, everything may not be as positive as it may seem at first glance. Ultraviolet can have an anti-inflammatory effect on problem skin, but only if you use sunscreen and dosed exposure to direct sunlight. If problem skin is exposed to prolonged exposure to the sun and is not protected by means of UV filters, then new rashes will not be delayed, warn dermatologists.

First, direct sunlight breaks the skin's protective barrier, which contributes to dehydration. The sun is really able to reduce the amount of sebum and foci of inflammation, but if the hydrolipid balance is disturbed, the condition of the skin will worsen. Secondly, under the influence of sunlight, the stratum corneum of the epidermis thickens to protect itself from burns: dead cells are compacted, sebum accumulates under them, clogging pores and provoking the emergence of new inflammations, cosmetologists noted.

At the moment of being in the sun, the skin is affected not only by ultraviolet rays, but also by the temperature factor. And in the heat, excessive sebum secretion only intensifies.

In order to avoid exacerbations, it is necessary to apply sunscreens designed for oily and problem skin, and not to expose the facial skin to the active sun from 10 a.m. to 16 p.m., doctors urge.
