We face skin problems in summer due to the heat and humidity. Heat rash, acne, folliculitis and tanning are some of the problems that you can face but it is best to prevent them. Here are some tips for you.
- Moisturise twice daily
Moisturization improves your skin tone and texture and masks imperfections. It holds water in the outermost layer of skin, which acts as a temporary barrier for your skin.
- Cleanse once daily
Daily cleansing removes the daily impurities (bacteria, dirt, old skin cells & pollutants) that your skin is exposed to throughout the day. It gives your skin a fresh, clean and healthy look.
- Use skin toner once a day
It helps to remove excess dirt, traces of oil, makeup, balances skin pH, and helps control acne.
- Use sunscreen daily
It protects your skin from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation. There are 2 types of UV radiation, UVA and UVB, that damage the skin, age it prematurely, and increase your risk of skin cancer.
- Eat healthy for a healthy skin
Healthy foods may be fish, walnuts, spinach, lentils, chia seeds, almonds, flaxseeds and avocados.
- Maintain hydration
To look ageless, increase your skin’s elasticity. Make sure to be well hydrated to have a healthy and soft skin. This is the secret behind all celebrities who have a supple, glowing, camera-ready skin.
- Adequate sleep nourishes your skin
A good night’s sleep can mean good skin health because when you’re sleep-deprived, your body makes more of the stress hormone cortisol. Elevated levels of cortisol can lead to increased stress and inflammation in the body, hurting your skin’s quality.
- Do minimal makeup
In summers, wearing minimal facial makeup allows the skin to breathe better in a hot and humid weather.
- Protect your eyes
Skin around your eyes is much thinner and more delicate as compared to the rest of your face. It is good to use an undereye gel that has hyaluronic acid, cucumber, or even honey to keep the skin around the eyes hydrated and prevent wrinkle formation.
- Exfoliate and use antioxidants regularly
Exfoliation helps to have a smoother skin; so include antioxidants in your facial skincare routine.
So, now you know how to beat the heat and take care of your skin in summers.
