Skin care for summers

Skin Care For All In SummerHere are some easy tips to make your skin look and feel beautiful in the hot summer months. Sunshine, heat, humidity affects your skin. Sunrays 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.
