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.
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.
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.
It helps to remove excess dirt, traces of oil, makeup, balances skin pH, and helps control acne.
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.
Healthy foods may be fish, walnuts, spinach, lentils, chia seeds, almonds, flaxseeds and avocados.
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.
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.
In summers, wearing minimal facial makeup allows the skin to breathe better in a hot and humid weather.
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.
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.
