Summer Skin Survival

Dos and Dont's from a seasoned pro

By: Dorothy Foltz-Gray

If you have to embark on an 11 mile jungle trek in the dead of summer, it's handy to have a nurse along.  That's what Margaret Bobonich's teammates discovered during 2005's Survivor: Guatemala season, which found the dermatology nurse practitioner tending to dehydration, torn muscles and a poisonous barbed plant injury after her team won the grueling first challenge.

Ousted halfway through her season, Bobonich returns to Guatemala annually with nonprofit Refuge International and practices full-time at Cleveland's University Hospital, Case Medical Center.

You may not (hopefully) be lost in the wild this summer, but you should still protect your skin with Bobonich's tips. 

  • Do wear a hat and SPF 30 outdoors, and reapply every two hours.
  • Don't spend more than four hours in direct sun, even if you're protected.  Break it up with some shade time.  "The sun plays a big part in breaking down skin so that you get more wrinkles and dark spots," Bobonich says.
  • Don't use soap - especially the antibacterial kind - on your face and body.  Opt for a gentle cleanser. 
  • Do take cooler, shorter showers to help keep skin hydrated.
  • Do use petroleum jelly for wound and burn care.  "Hydrated wounds heal faster and better, and the jelly also prevents scarring," she says.  It's also a great, non-allergenic moisturizer.
