skin-care-for-summerWe are providing some easy Beauty tips to make your skin look and feel beautiful in the hot summer months. Sunshine, heat, humidity affects your skin. Sun-rays can result in wrinkles, early ageing, tanning, sun burns or even worse, skin cancer. Prolonged stay in heat or sun can lead to rashes and clogged pores.

Use sunscreen : Daily application of sunscreen is very important before stepping out in the sun. It would be best if you could reapply every two hours. Using a sunscreen according to the skin type protects the skin from damage and it also seals in moisture. Cover yourself with long-sleeved shirts, sunglasses to stay protected from the harmful rays of the sun.

Exfoliate regularly : Pollution, dirt, sweat, etc. increase the amount of dead skin cells which build up on your face and body. Get rid of this with an exfoliating scrub or loofah a few times every week. Use liquid soaps but be gentle or else you could land up with rashes!

Moisturize your skin : Use light water based moisturizers and sunscreens for both face and body. Stay away from thick oily ones as they will only clog your pores more.

Use summer makeup : Use liquid foundation for a lighter, mineral-based powder with a minimum SPF of 15. Avoid cream based makeup and apply natural looking glow

Practice smart hair removal : Do not shave or use a razor often on your skin, as they are drying in nature. Go for moisturizing shaving creams and gels to remove those unwanted hair.

Keep yourself hydrated : During the hot weather, your body gets dehydrated quickly. Drink plenty of water to keep your body cool and skin hydrated.

Diet : Prefer nimbu pani/lassi/coconut water to aerated drinks and coffee; eat light, nutritious, non-fatty and low-salt meals.
