Every year, summers take a toll on the skin. The scorching heat, pollution, humidity, et al, wipes it off the natural glow, and sometimes, invites infections. To avoid all these hassles, and to keep your skin inspiring like before, here are the eight easy-peasy tips you can follow this season.
1. Wash your face:
Wash your face at least 4 times a day with a soft cleanser.Eliminate cream based cleansers (unless you have very much dry skin!) whereas they take care of leave your skin oily. Use a gel based scrub at least twice a week to get free of the tan and lifeless skin cells. The exfoliation will help to repose your face look smooth and clear
2.Exfoliate your body skin
The ground system of basic skincare is to exfoliate your skin. Your body sheds skin cells at an amazing rate every minute of every day. If you don’t get release of them, they’ll just set in on your skin making you look limp and dry. No matter how much lotion you use, you’re never going to have glowing skin if you don’t exfoliate. Grab a body scrub and hit the shower. Gently abrade your exfoliator in circular strolls on your entire body from the shoulders down (you’ll want a facial exfoliator for your face and neck) and rinse clean. Continue to do this 2-3 times a week for year-round beautiful skin.
3. Sunscreen is a must
Cast away last year’s unutilized sunscreen for a new bottle. Sunscreens aren’t meant to last forever, and seeing most people don’t use as much as they should. Buy a new sunscreen that has UVA and UVB products and comes in SPF 30 and SPF 70. You should be using a shot glass full for your body and a full teaspoon just on your face. Reapply it every 1-2 hours that you are in the sun to ensure a summer full of safe sun
4. Go to shortcut makeup
During summers minimal make-up is best. Under the intolerable sun, natural looks are best. If you mean to use foundation then also apply face powder with SPF to avoid incompatible skin. To protect your lips always use a gloss or a lip balm with an SPF of 15 to make your lips fresher. Eye make is something which should be very much avoided in summers.
5.Drinking enough water
Make water your best friend.At least 8 glasses of water are essential. If possible, carry a water bottle with you and keep in mind to drink at least once every 30 min. Water not only helps you feel fresh, but it also prevents dehydration and will help wash out a lot of toxins.
6. Hydrate your body with a lotion
Find a summery lotion that you won’t forget to put on. It’s time to pack away your thick winter body cream for more light summery lotions. You don’t have time to wait for your lotion to sink in, so look for something light fast absorbing. Gels and purees are perfect fast absorbers. Nothing spells summer more than a light refreshing fruity lotion. Make sure you apply right after you dry off from your shower. You need to seal in the moisture your body just soaked in.
7. Don the right style:
If you have long hair, roll it up in a simple bun or keep it tied so that it does not fall on the scruff of your neck. And if you are ready to test don a short haircut to keep yourself cool this summer
8. Look for a summer luster
Buy a brave new polish for your finger. Toe nails can be painted a much bolder colour than you would usually put on your fingernails. Pick out something that screams summer. Polish tends to stay on your toes much longer than your hands because you don’t abuse your toe nails like you do your finger nails. Apply a clear base coat, two applications of colour and a clear top coat to protect. Go barefoot or put on your flip-flops for at least a couple hours to make sure your polish won’t dent.
9. Protect your eyes
If you are going to be out for a long time, ensure that you wear shades to protect your eyes and a scarf or a hat to protect your hair, face and eyes.
7. Don’t forget your feet
Winter boots have long since been packed away; it’s sandal season ladies. Either go or get a pedicure (try a beauty school if cost is a factor), or give yourself an at-home pedicure. You scour off the lifeless dry skin to reveal your sandal ready feet. Nothing is worse than seeing dull dull feet inside cute sandals. It doesn’t have to be a big ordeal. Keep a foot scrub and file in your shower and scrub your feet a few times a week. You’ll notice a big difference in the softness of your feet.
