Anny Choudhry, Physician of Aesthetics at the Aventus Clinic, warned people to take precautions against the sun.

“The sun we love is one of the worst irritants on the skin,” she said.

“Skin absorbs UV rays and visible light, which can cause pigment spots and accelerate aging.

“Those living in Brighton will need to be extra careful going out in the sun over the next few months and I suggest using SPF 50 on your face and spraying your hair with a protectant, even if you’re just for one jump out hour.

“Sun damage can lead to skin conditions like actinic keratosis and more serious problems like skin cancer.

“It’s the obvious proposition, but we all need to wear sunscreen to protect against acute and long-term sun damage.”

dr Choudhry also recommended people avoid retinol and exfoliating acids like BHAs, AHAS, salicylic acid, and lactic acid during heat waves.

dr Suhail Alam, medical director and hair restoration specialist at Aventus Clinic, also shared tips on how to keep hair healthy in the heat.

“Prolonged exposure to the sun can cause hair to become dry, brittle, frizzy and thin,” said Dr. alert

“A small but effective way to protect hair is to apply a thin layer of SPF to your hairline to prevent root damage. When the hair root is protected, the loss of skin cells is prevented, ensuring the hair stays strong.

“If you’re getting out of the house quickly, a loose-fitting hat would help protect your hair.

“Finally, I would suggest conditioning the hair with conditioning masks and running cold water over it after washing.” Brighton has been voted the sunniest city according to research by the Aventus Clinic
