Don’t let summers take a toll on your beauty this summer. Follow these 10 easy-to-follow tips to keep your skinvibrant and glowing.
1.Go Easy on the Makeup
During the sweltering and humid weather, less is more when it comes to makeup. Avoid a heavy, full-coverage base to let your skin breathe. A tinted moisturizer is a better option in this season.
2. Hydrate your Body
It goes without saying that water is your skin’s best friend in all seasons, specially summers. Dehydrated skin appears dull. Drinking plenty of water keeps your skin’s glow alive. At the same time, it also gets your body rid of toxins.
So, count your glasses during the whole day and make sure the number is not less than 8!
3. Exfoliate the Toxins Away
As water flushes out your internal toxins, the external contaminants need a good exfoliating scrub. It removes toxins that may otherwise clog your pores.
4. Wear a Waterproof Sunscreen
As you sweat more in summers, your sunscreen is wiped off. A waterproof sunscreen is the answer to this problem since it is more long lasting. So, lather all exposed parts of your skins – face, neck, hands, arms and feet – with a high SPF sunscreen every day.
5. Don’t Overdo with the Products
You need to go easy with your skincare regime in summers. Too many products can be overwhelming for your skin. Often, a simple regime – including a good face wash, scrub and moisturizer – is more than enough.
6. Invest in Non-comedogenic Makeup
It is worth investing in makeup that doesn’t clog your pores. So, before making a purchase, look carefully at the labels. Non-comedogenic or oil-free is what your need to look for.
7. Wash and Moisturize before Hitting the Sheets
It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to wash your face properly before calling it a day. NEVER ever go to bed with remnants of makeup on. If you do, you may wake up with irritated skin or worse – a scary pimple!
It is equally important to moisturize before going to bed. The skin rejuvenates as you sleep. You will wake up with a well-nourished skin if you don’t skip your moisturizer at night.
8. Sport a Trendy Sun hat
When you step out, a sunscreen may not be enough against the harsh sun. Just to double up your protection, a hat can be a good idea. There are a lot of options available and you can choose one that suits you and looks trendy.
9. Consume a Balanced Diet
What you eat is just as important as what you put on your skin. In summers, eat plenty of juicy fruits and vegetables that can keep you hydrated. Also, the vitamins and minerals found in these fruits and vegetables will nourish your skin.
10. Don’t Forget your Night Cream
Wind up your day with a good night cream. One that contains vitamin E or C is highly recommended. These vitamins renew your skin cells and fight against aging.
