Summer is a season when UV radiation can cause skin dehydration or even inflammation. Air conditioning makes it easier for your skin to dry out, and a loss of moisture in the skin can lead to dull skin in summertime. To maintain healthy skin, it is necessary to take care of the damages caused by sun exposure with suitable skincare items.

Cause of Blemishes

If our skin is exposed to direct sunlight, the skin cells which produce melanin pigment will be stimulated by UV radiation and begin to produce excess amount of melanin pigment. The melanin pigment appears on the surface of the skin, which is the mechanism for sunburn. If the sunburn is temporary, your skin colour will get back to normal over time. However, prolonged exposure to UV radiation or irregular skin metabolism will lead to the accumulation of melanin pigment on your skin, and the excess amount will become the cause of blemishes.
