Vacation skin: Protecting  your skin from various climate temperatures

Miami Beach, Florida

Though the summer is winding down, there are climates which have hot temperatures throughout the year. In my case; I have skin breakouts on my face related to the heat. Miliaria Rubra commonly referred to as “Prickly Heat”is a breakout of tiny fine pimples due to heat and the inability of the skin to perspire. Also defined: A skin condition caused by blocked sweat ducts and trapped sweat beneath the skin.
Treatment  to help provide relief to ” Prickly Heat” can be alleviated by using  Hydrocortisone 1% PLUS Anti-Itch Creme
Brands may vary
Prickly Heat is usually self-diagnosable.                                   The rash may appear as blisters or red lumps. Heat rash may cause itchiness or a prickly feeling.

Treatment consists of self care.                        Heat rash usually goes away on its own. Use of fans and lightweight clothing can help.

As a Tip during the summer months, use the product on the skin directly and rub into the skin gently. Also, the product can be mixed into the makeup foundation of your choice. This is what I do during the summer months.


While visiting Miami Beach, Florida I noticed that along the beach there were pumps that provides skin products which protects the skin from the sun’s rays.

Sun Block Skin Protectrant

Your skin is considered as the largest organ of the body. It protects other organs. In cases of warm climates; over exposure to the sun is of  a concern. 

Our next topic is sun blockers. Here are some interesting facts to keep in mind. The higher the SPF, the more effective with sun protection.  As you are aware there are many products on the market, but here are my top 5 pics for the beach.
