Healthy Skin for the Outdoor Athlete

Healthy Skin for the Outdoor Athlete

From Barton Springs and Deep Eddy to Lady Bird trail and the greenbelt, Austin is an amazing city for outdoor activity. Our board-certified dermatologists love to run and exercise outdoors, but we have to admit that between the heat, sweat, and the sun in Austin, Texas, it can be a challenging place for an outdoor athlete (especially during the summer months).

There’s no doubt that being an athlete does put you at increased risk for some skin conditions, such as skin infections and photo-induced skin changes, including skin cancer. Just like getting in shape, keeping your skin healthy requires a good daily routine. Fortunately, there’s a lot you can do to keep your skin beautiful for years to come.
