A fair and glowing skin is what we girls crave for every summer. The scorching rays of the sun can lead to early aging, dryness, darkening and tanning, dullness and roughness. The hottest season of the year therefore calls for a proper care of the skin.
One can get a fair, smooth and a glowing skin in every summer season following some of these tips as discussed below.
- Proper hydration
It is very important to drink plenty of water during summers. It keeps the body hydrated and removes toxins making the skin look fresh and glowing.
Cleansing the body and face skin should be a daily activity followed twice in a day. Washing the face at least thrice daily with a mild face wash helps the skin stay clean and fresh.
Exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells using a face and skin scrub at least thrice in a week will be of great help to get a healthy look.
Using a mild toner to even out the skin should also be included in the everyday routine of skin care.
Using a right sunscreen is absolutely important for protecting the skin from harsh sun. Opting for water-based sunscreen lotions are usually better as they are light weighted and reduce extra oil from the skin giving a fresh look all day long.
- Protective clothing
It is very important to make the right choice in clothing and accessories like the fabrics that won’t itch, or overheat such as light colored clothes that lower down the heat level.
- Bare skin Coverage
The hands, the face, and the feet which are majorly affected, should always be covered before leaving the house to make the skin stay healthy all through the season.
- Cooling facials
During summers, the skin generally tends to feel dried up. A facial can be prepared at home by mixing yogurt and cucumber to be applied all over the face and body for a glowing skin.
Eating carrots, watermelons, and food with high water content will help to keep the skin healthy and fresh in the season where heat dominates the looks.
