While we’re glad to provide our many facial and skin treatments in order to give your skin a radiant glow, it’s also important for you to maintain healthy habits so you can avoid ailments that are detrimental to your skin. One such example is heat rash.

Heat rash is a skin condition that’s caused by blocked sweat ducts and trapped sweat beneath the skin. This rash usually appears as reddish lumps or blisters. It’s mainly found on areas covered by clothing and may cause itchiness or discomfort. While heat rash usually goes away on its own, there are also ways you can keep yourself from having to deal with it in the first place. Here are a few tips to help avoid getting heat rash during this hot weather.

Stay out of the Heat

Probably the most obvious way to avoid heat rash is just to stay out of the sun. Exposure to the sun and other hot weather is the quickest way to become afflicted with a heat rash. We recommend staying in the shade or in air-conditioned areas when it gets too hot out.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water, especially when it’s hot out, is the first thing you should do if you want to avoid heat rash. It will serve to regulate your body temperature and cool you down.

Wear Looser Clothes

Tight-fitting clothes can irritate your skin and cause heat rashes. Wearing looser clothes can keep your skin cooler and help you avoid getting a heat rash.

Bathe Frequently

Sweat will continue to build up if you aren’t frequently bathing. This sweat you’ve accumulated will serve to clog your pores, prevent your skin from breathing, and also produce skin irritations that can lead to a heat rash. Also, make sure to dry your skin thoroughly after you’re done bathing.

Sleep in a Cool and Comfortable Environment

Heat rash can also develop on you while you sleep. You’ll want to sleep in a room where the air is circulating. This can be with air conditioning, a fan, or an open window. Whichever is your choice, make sure the room stays cool.
