When the sun wants to spoil our summer
Now it is close again, the beautiful summer time.
Air, light, warmth. Everything a person needs for well-being - especially after the long, dark winter days.
The warm rays of the sun get our circulation going, blood circulation and metabolism are stimulated. The UV rays promote the formation of vitamin D, the body builds up more defenses. We feel completely at ease.
More than a nuisance:
Sun allergy And then that: After the first extensive sunbathing, the skin turns red, blisters or nodules appear and the skin begins to itch - a "sun allergy", a "polymorphic light dermatosis", PLD for short. 10% of the population suffers from it, young women are particularly affected. Nobody really knows why. An allergic reaction that is activated by UV rays is suspected. Usually the skin gets used to the UV rays over the course of the summer. Nevertheless, a sun allergy is uncomfortable, annoying and painful.
Easy to get under control
Polymorphic light dermatosis can be avoided relatively easily through preventive measures. A sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF 10-20) is recommended. And take it slow. Start with short sunbaths and cover the sensitive areas of skin such as the décolleté, shoulders and neck. If the skin has got used to the sun over the summer, PLD is hardly an issue anymore.
Mallorca acne and other problems
Mallorca acne looks like PLD but is much less common. Typical features are severely itchy nodules with an acne-like appearance. It is usually triggered by fats and emulsifiers in sunscreens or cosmetics. However, certain UV filters and fragrances can also trigger unpleasant skin reactions when combined with the sun's rays.
How the 2V strategy helps
The 2V strategy - prevention and avoidance - means that if you have a tendency to Mallorca acne, you should use so-called hydrogels as a preventive sunscreen and avoid body care products that contain fat and emulsifiers a few days before sunbathing. In the case of intolerance to chemical UV filters and fragrances, it is important to avoid deodorants, aftershave and perfumes before sunbathing and to use sunscreen without UV-A filters as a preventive measure.
In this way you can avoid skin irritations with great certainty.
What else troubles us
Not only the sun can take away the fun of summer. Stinging pests such as sand fleas, bees and wasps, but above all the bloodthirsty mosquitoes, can tarnish the summer joys. Their stings are painful, itchy and often lead to inflammation. When a mosquito bites, for example, the mosquito secretes a blood-clotting secretion that causes the extremely unpleasant itching. Skin reactions with very itchy wheals can also develop in this way.
Mosquitoes are particularly popular in long-lasting, humid and warm weather. Areas with many standing water, which serve as breeding zones for mosquitoes, are particularly often affected by mosquito plagues in the summer months.
Prevention is the best strategy here:
- Offer little surface to attack. Light summer clothing that covers the arms and legs makes it difficult for mosquitoes to find an exposed area of skin.
- Insects react to scents. Avoid floral perfumes and fragrant hairsprays, which can additionally attract mosquitoes, bees and wasps.
- Make your apartment mosquito-proof. A mosquito net over the bed or mosquito screens in front of the windows keep the small disturbances away at night and guarantee an undisturbed sleep.
- Mosquitoes can't smell that at all: put citronella candles at outdoor parties. Their scent drives away the annoying bloodsuckers.
