Miro Pharmacy

Summer is finally coming! Looking forward to the sun, sea and beach with a bottle of water at hand to keep you very hydrated while preparing for the torrid nights. At the pharmacy we are also preparing for the heat, and we are available to help you make the most of this season that makes us the most attractive area of the city. We leave you a few tips to have your first aid kit ready before the mosquitoes eat you:

Sun protection and skin cancer prevention

With the arrival of summer, outdoor activities and sun exposure increase. If you want to sunbathe, you have to do it carefully. Just 15 minutes of exposure to ultraviolet radiation can damage the skin. If we do not protect ourselves, we expose ourselves to risks such as burns, premature skin aging or the development of skin cancer.
It is important to know your skin phototype when choosing a sunscreen. The lower the phototype, the higher the sun protection measures must be. Before leaving home, we can check the day’s UV radiation and put on a sunscreen that protects against UVA rays and UVB, 20 minutes before exposing ourselves. It is also recommended to renew the application every two hours, after bathing or if you sweat a lot. Clothing and hats also help prevent burns.

Healthy sleep during the summer

Long summer nights can disrupt sleep patterns, which can lead to fatigue and other health problems. Tips such as maintaining a regular sleep routine, refreshing the environment before going to sleep, avoiding alcohol and caffeine in the afternoon and evening, and relaxing before going to bed can help us. If we need some help, we have products of natural origin at the pharmacy that can make you rest better during the worst summer nights, without causing dependence.

Insect bites and disease transmission

Summer is a time to enjoy the outdoors, but it is also the time of greatest activity for insects, which can cause annoying bites and, in some cases, transmit diseases. You should use insect repellents, avoid having stagnant water in the house and on the balconies and, in case you are bitten, have one in your first aid kit or cream to relieve the itch.
