Top 5 Summer Skin Care Tips For You!
Summers just happen to take a toll on your skin. The burning heat, pollution, humidity, wipes off the natural glow, and may also cause infections. To avoid all these hassles, and to keep your skin glowing forever, here are the eight easy-peasy skin care tips you can follow during summers for beautiful, glowing and fresh skin.
Summer skin care tips mainly include natural ingredients. Fresh fruits, vegetables are the key components. Not just eat, but also apply them to refresh your skin. Natural skin care is all about treating your skin with natural homemade products and recipes. Let’s have a look!
1. Sunscreen is a Must
Throw away last year’s sunscreen for a new bottle. Sunscreens aren’t meant to last always. Buy a new sunblock cream that has UVA and UVB products and comes in SPF 30 and SPF 70. You should use sunscreen daily. Reapply it every 1-2 hours when you are in the sun to protect your skin.
2. Hydrate Your Body with a Lotion
It’s time to pack away your thick winter body butters for more light summery lotions. You don’t have time to wait for your lotion to sink in, so look for something light and fast absorbing. Gels are perfect fast absorbers. Make sure you apply summer lotion right after you dry off from your bath. You need to lock the moisture which your body just soaked in.
3. Don’t Forget Your Feet
It’s sandal season ladies. Either go and get a pedicure or give yourself an at-home pedicure. Scrub off the dead, dry skin to reveal your sandal ready feet. Nothing is worse than seeing dull, dry feet inside cute sandals. It doesn’t have to be a big trouble. 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.
4. Exfoliate Your Body
Your body sheds skin cells every minute every day. If you don’t get rid of them, they’ll just set in on your skin making you look dull and dry. No matter how much you moisturize your body, you’re never going to have glowing skin if you don’t exfoliate it. Grab a body scrub and hit the shower. Gently rub your exfoliator in circular movements on your entire body from the shoulders down and rinse clean. Continue to do this 2-3 times a week for year-round beautiful skin.
5. Special Tip for Ladies
During summers less make-up is best *sarcastic*. Under the intolerant sun, natural looks are best. If you intend to use base then also apply face powder with SPF to avoid patchy skin. To protect your lips always use a lip balm with an SPF of 15 to make your lips smoother and fresher.
Besides these tips, some little precautions could also be helpful:
- Drink plenty of water to keep your skin fresh and glowing.
- Use umbrella or a hat while going out.
- Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.
Happy summers! *wink*
