Summer Skin Care Essentials
Updated: May 20
Summer brings a beautiful change in wardrobes. It is the time to take out that pastel pink crop top and match it with that cute denim pant, or just go with that chic linen since winter could not do justice to it. Fixing the summer wardrobe is the best thing to do but taking care of your skin in summers is another ball game. With raised temperatures, your oily skin gets oilier, and dry skin gets patchy. There are breakouts and pimples, rashes and roughness, and that acne just wouldn’t go away! Just a few simple changes in your everyday skincare regimen can ensure that you are all set to glow through this season too. Here are a few summer skin care tips that can come quite handy.
#1 STICK TO YOUR BASICS
#2 FLUIDS FLUIDS AND MORE FLUIDS
You must drink at least 3 litres of water every day if water sounds boring then lemonade or jaljeera or any natural drink. Stay away from carbonated drinks or ready-made juices, just stop. The artificial flavors in these drinks, the acidic nature of these drinks can affect your digestion and we all know how unhealthy digestion leads to unhealthy skin.
#3 DON"T FORGET YOUR LIPS
Yes, your lips need sunscreen, too. Since the sun can be extremely drying, keep them soft and smooth by using a rich lip balm with SPF 15 or higher like Nykaa's Lip Crush which comes in different fruity flavours.
#4 GIVE YOURSELF VITAMIN C BOOST
Load up on vitamin C rich foods like orange, lemon, grapefruits, tomato and green leafy vegetables among others. Which indeed is responsible for maintaining healthy collagen, the supportive tissue of the skin.
#5 DO NOT FORGET TO EXFOLIATE
It is essential to remove dead skin cells that damage your skin texture and give you an uneven skin tone. Use natural ingredients to exfoliate your skin. Biotique's Bio Papaya Scrub is the best product which I use to scrub my face and hands. It removes all the dirt and tan on regular usage.
#6 FORGET EVERYTHING, BUT SUNSCREEN
Remember, sunscreen is the most important product you must use. Exposure to the sun can damage your skin which can form wrinkles and fine lines. Prolonged exposure can also lead to dark spots or patches.
