Summer Health Issues

Fabulous Daily in The Sun looks at the 8 different ways in which summer can be bad for you with advice from leading health and beauty experts including Cosmedics Skin Clinics founder and Medical Director, Dr Ross Perry.

The top way in which the summer season could affect your health was the range of skin irritations that heat and sun exposure can cause.

The feature explains the issues with input from Dr Ross Perry:

Irritating Our Skin

We all know to protect ourselves from skin cancer but the sun can also affect it in several other ways.

Dr Ross Perry, skin specialist and owner of Cosmedics clinics, says:

“UV rays can irritate the skin, triggering a host of potential complaints.

“People who already have acne or rosacea often find the sun can aggravate these too.”

The Sun’s advice is:

Avoid the sun from 11am to 3pm when the rays are strongest, and always use sunscreen.
