The summer may be winding down in Rochester, MN, but an effective skin care routine never rests. Heat can do a real number on your skin and overall health. If you don’t plan for high temps and adjust your care routines accordingly, you may find yourself struggling with skin discomfort or even damage. At MenSalon, we encourage men working in high heat or spending time in the great outdoors to take extra care of their skin to help stay healthy and comfortable all year round.


When most people think of heat and skin damage, they probably think of sunburns, and for good reason. Sunburn can cause major skin damage in a relatively short period of time. If you’re invested in your skin and want to maintain a healthy skin care routine, you must remember to apply sunscreen before you go out as well as reapply throughout the day. This strategy doesn’t just reduce the risk for irritating burns, but also it helps prevent premature wrinkling, skin discoloration and spots, and long-term skin conditions. But heat damage to skin doesn’t stop at sunburn.


Excessive sweating is essential for keeping your body cool, but if you have sensitive skin, it can leave you feeling oily and irritated. If you’re spending hours in the heat, excess sweating can even be a contributing factor in dehydration. Keeping hydrated throughout the day and wearing light, moisture-wicking clothes can simultaneously help reduce irritation from sweat, limit skin damage, and reduce your chances for dehydration.


In addition to taking the preceding steps to protect your skin from hot weather, since summer is already nearing an end, you may want to take a little time for some skin-friendly TLC to address any damage that has occurred. MenSalon can assist you with skin care that can help soothe and reduce skin damage. Our spa services are a great way for you to treat your skin to a much needed reprieve in the hot weather. With MenSalon’s facials and moisturizing techniques, even battered summer skin can find some relief.
