Our skin is the largest organ in our body and needs extra special care. Having visible skin issues can take a big chunk off your self-esteem, making you lose confidence in how you present yourself to the world. As such, it’s important to keep our skin as healthy as it can be.

When these issues pop up, not only our physical health is impacted. Our mental health is largely affected too. Aside from ourselves, skin issues also affect our loved ones. To show them our love and care, we should teach them the importance of skincare. A good way to get them started is by sharing our article on how skincare is self care.

Common skin issues you need to be aware of

We know that the manifestations of these issues can be hard to distinguish. So we’ve some listed down some skin issues that Filipinos experience to help you out:

Miliaria or Prickly Heat Rashes

These rashes, more commonly called “bungang araw,” appear due to excessive sweating. It occurs when there are blockages on the sweat ducts. Since infants and children's bodies are still developing, they are the most susceptible to miliaria. The rashes usually appear as clusters of red bumps or spots, and come with an itchy sensation.

Atopic Dermatitis or Eczema

This is a chronic skin issue that causes itching and redness to the skin. It’s more commonly triggered by irritants and allergens that differ from person to person.


This skin issue affects someone for the entirety of their life. While usually easily manageable, the rashes brought upon by psoriasis causes the skin to itch and appear red. In severe cases, it may cause a burning sensation and pain.

Allergic Contact Dermatitis

This usually appears as a reaction toward certain allergens such as cold weather, long water exposure, and certain chemicals. The rashes from this skin issue are usually dry, scaly, and non-itchy.

Tips to prevent skin issues

Common skin issues usually heal on their own after some time. However, the discomfort you get from them may be a hindrance to you and your family’s daily life. To help you with this, here are some tips you can try to help prevent skin issues.

Keep yourself hydrated

Skin hydration is necessary to rejuvenate your skin. The outermost layer of the skin needs moisture to flush away toxins and carry nutrients to the skin’s cells.

Get adequate sleep

There’s a reason getting your beauty sleep is important. Your skin can protect and heal itself better at night as you sleep soundly.

Know your allergens

Learn about your family’s allergens as well as your own. Be sure to take extra precaution when exposed to these allergens to prevent unwanted skin reactions.
