Summer Essentials – Skin & Hair Care
Summers are here and so is the season of heat, sweating, dehydration, oiliness, and tanning. While most of us try handling these skin- related troubles in the best possible way, sadly a lack of proper guidance lands all our efforts in vain. The problem lies in our ignorance in identifying our skin type and using the commonly available products that leads to further degradation of skin. Hence, for a proper summer skin-care routine, one needs to have knowledge about what all their skin demands to be fed with.
Oily, dry, combination and normal are the most common of all skin types. As the weather starts warming up, it breaks havoc and affects each of them in some of the other way. Since you can’t confine yourself indoors all day long just to protect the skin from those ruthless sun rays, going for a smarter option if more feasible.
- SUNSCREEN is the thing of utmost importance that acts as a shield against the damaging sun rays. Never forget to apply a sunscreen all over the exposed areas of your skin with SPF 30 or more, at least 15 minutes before you set out.
Also, use a lip balm with SPF 15 to protect your lips.
- Next thing, where most of us fail is at making the RIGHT CHOICE OF MOISTURIZER. Many of us neglect the fact that skin needs to be moisturized during summers too. But due to the activation of sweat glands due to heat, a light moisturizer is required as compared to what we use in winters.
Hence, one is advised to choose wisely according to what their skin demands.
- One can never ignore the importance of PROPER HYDRATION that body requires, especially during the sunny season. Juices, shakes, and smoothies may be of any help, but nothing can ever replace the significance that water holds.
Make sure you gulp down at least 8 glasses of water daily. Also, keep a water-bottle in your bag whenever you go out.
- CLEANSE your skin with a suitable face-wash twice a day- morning and night, without any fail. This not only clears off all the dirt and oil off your face and brightens it but also reduces the chances of any skin-related breakouts.
Never forget to remove your makeup before calling your day off.
- Dead skin cells that start appearing on the skin’s surface are needed to be ridden off timely. One must EXFOLIATE at least once a week to minimalize the effects of tanning, acne, and blackheads. Make sure you don’t skip your lips while scrubbing.
Try using some fruit-based scrub to provide extra nourishment and glow to the skin.
- Since it gets extremely hot and humid out, TRY KEEPING YOUR MAKE-UP LIGHT AND SHEER. Avoid darker beauty shades, heavy foundations and too much of shine on the face. Instead, go for nude lipsticks and natural looking eyeshadow colors.
Make smart investments in water-proof and long-lasting make-up products.
Similar to skin, our hair also requests for equal attention from our side. The daily heat, sweat, and pollution often cause frizz and dryness of hair, resulting in a loss of natural oils and excessive hair fall. Still confused about the basics to be focused? Here are a few pro-tips:
- SHAMPOO YOUR HAIR at a minimum of thrice a week during summers. This would clean all the trapped oil, dirt and sweat that accumulates at roots and causes irritation. Use a moisturizing shampoo as it would restore hair sebum and protect their shine too.
Use a MILD CONDITIONER at least once every week this would help you to tame your hair without much of any efforts.
- Provide your hair with the gentlest care possible. Try to AVOID USING HEATon your hair. In addition to this DO NOT GO FOR any ARTIFICIAL HAIR- COLOURING options, as they only degrade the hair texture when exposed to heat.
Also, do not forget to keep your HEAD COVERED as it will not only protect your hair against the UV rays but would also be helpful to minimize the heat’s effect on your upper body.
As the dark, dull and lazy winters end, summer arrives to lift up both our body and soul. Do not let harshness of the sun derogate your summer vibes.
So, all that you need now is BEACH & FUN WITH A TOUCH OF CARE!
