Summer Skin Care

It is again that time of the year when you'll be accompanied by your scarfs, sunscreens and umbrellas whenever you step out of your home. Yes, the scorching season of summer is returned with all its glory! And every time summer knocks on our doors, it brings with itself skin care problems such as tan, breakouts, roughness, rashes and whatnot. The scorching heat, humidity, pollution, and many other factors wipe off the natural glow and sometimes cause infections. To avoid all these problems, and to keep your skin radiating like before, here are some easy-peasy tips you can follow this season.

Face Wash to Remove Excess Oil

In summer, oily skin can become more oily. Use a face wash that is suitable for your skin type and capable of deep cleansing and removing all the dirt and grime. People having dry skin would need a non-foaming cleanser. Choose cleansers that are mild, alcohol-free and pH balanced.

Add A Punch Of Antioxidants

Invest in moisturizers, serums and sunscreens that come with an extra punch of antioxidants. For instance, vitamin C shields your skin from environmental damage, boosts collagen development and prevents wrinkles.

Serums and creams contain natural extracts and antioxidants to reduce inflammation (which is more common in summer), neutralize harmful free radicals and restore your skin.

Opt For A Good Skin Care Routine

Maintain a skin care routine and follow it religiously. Choose water-based (for oily skin) and gel-based (for dry skin) rather than cream-based products as the former are lighter and non-greasy. Cleansing, toning and moisturizing your skin twice a day will help keep it clean and fresh.

Add Fruits And Vegetables To Your Diet

You need to nourish your skin properly to keep it glowing. A healthy diet is a must during summertime. So, consume lots of fruits and vegetables as they are rich in vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants that boost collagen formation, reduce inflammation and protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays.

Keep Your Skin Hydrated

Staying hydrated is necessary at all times during summer. After washing your face at night, use a hydrating face mask for extra moisture while you sleep. To keep your skin fresh or hydrated, splash it with water or carry a facial mist with you at all times.

A mask can treat specific skin problems such as dryness, acne, oil, etc. Choose the right mask and spend those 10 extra minutes on wiping away the fatigue stress, and blemishes from your skin.

Exfoliate For Healthy Skin

To remove excess dirt and oil from the skin, use a face scrub at least twice a week. Only use a scrub that is suitable for your skin type and massage it gently in a circular motion. Make sure to exfoliate your lips and neck as well.

Avoid Heavy Makeup

Makeup that is too heavy prevents your skin from breathing. Humidity and heat also affect the skin’s ability to breathe. Instead of heavy foundation and other cosmetics products, you could consider using a tinted lip balm and moisturiser if you need to wear some makeup.

Drink Plenty of Water

Water is the most important ingredient in healthy skin tissue. It keeps your skin soft, supple and radiant. Remember to carry water with you wherever you go and drink at least 2-3 liters per day. Water is also necessary for flushing toxins from the skin through sweat and urine.

Always Take Cold Water Showers

Hot showers and steam baths dehydrate your skin, so avoid them in the summer. Prefer a cold water shower as it keeps your skin pores unclogged and prevents acne breakouts. A cold water shower is also much more refreshing.

Natural Remedies

There are ingredients in your kitchen that can help to cool and soothe your skin in summer. Tomato and lemon are best for keeping your skin fresh. A quick way to use tomato is to juice tomatoes (don't add water) and freeze the juice in ordinary ice trays. Use this as a gentle scrub every alternate day and allow the juice to dry on the skin before washing it off. Tomatoes contain lycopene, which is beneficial to the skin on the face.
