A beauty overhaul is all you need this summer. Get set with some of the best tips to change your skin care regime.
This summer, skin moisturising products will not be enough. Look for the products that double as a moisturiser and a skin protectant. Sunflower oil and vitamin E work as emollients that traps moisture inside skin cells. These products will keep the skin hydrated. Look out for alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids, which help replenish dry skin.
Exfoliate & Cleanse
One can get rid of dryness and rough layers left over from the winter with exfoliating. Remove walnut shells or apricot pits from the checklist of the best scrubs. They are rougher exfoliants and can irritate or tear the skin. Look for ingredients like brown sugar, or scrubs that contain beta hydroxy acids in the scrubs.
SPF is the Best
Be it summer, winter, spring or monsoon, SPF is a must-have year-round. As summer it all about the harsh sunlight, pollution and outings and hence more emphasis on sunscreen. All you have to do is just make sure what works for your face and for rest of your body.
Get the Minimal look
When you are out in the harsh sun, natural looks the best. Little make-up during summer should be the mantra this summer. Even if you use foundation, make sure you apply face powder with SPF to avoid the patches due to sweat. Use a gloss or lip balm with at least 15 SPF to protect your lips this summer. Avoid eye make-up this season.
Water, Water Everywhere
Your best buddy this summer should be water. Drink at least 8 glasses of water in a day. Do not forget to carry a water bottle with you and drink water once every 30 mins. It will not only prevent dehydration but will also make you feel fresh and wash out toxins.
