Summers are here, and like every year it harms the skin. The combination of Blazing heat, Pollution, and humidity rub out the beautiful glow of the skin and sometimes causes infection too. No one would want to face these skin-damaging problems. So in order to avoid the annoyance and irritation and to keep the skin glowing and dazzling like ever before, Here are some very useful skin-protecting tips for every type of skin (i.e Oily, Dry and Normal) you should follow this season.
TIPS FOR OILY SKIN :-
1. Exfoliate your body / Body Exfoliation :-
This is the very basic and easy skincare method. Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface. Remember to slough off dead skin with a loofah and an exfoliating body wash. Gently rub your exfoliator in circular movements on your entire body except for face and neck (you’ll want a facial exfoliator for your face and neck) and rinse clean. No lotion would help you look glowing unless you don’t exfoliate your body at least 3-4 times in a week.
2. Minimal Make-up :-
It is highly advised specially for oily skin to use less make up during summers. Try to avoid heavy makeup and show your natural beauty. Apply face powder if you are to use foundation to avoid patchy skin. Use lip balm to protect your lips and eye make up is something which is to be ignored in this hot season.
3. Eat Smart :-
This summer make your diet plan much smarter in order to protect your skin from the burning heat. Make routine of foods rich in antioxidants including green vegetables, blueberries and other melons. (But don’t eat melon or water melon just after drinking water and also don’t drink water just after eating melons.) You can also have food rich in protein like soybean etc. to nourish your skin and repair damages.
TIPS FOR DRY SKIN :-
Moisturizing can both cure and prevent dry skin. This may seem like an obvious solution, but it’s one we tend to forget about in our busy schedules. Spending two minutes massaging a moisturizing cream, or even an oil into your skin can do wonders. It’s best to moisturize your skin twice a day – once in the morning and once at night. If your skin is already on its way to dryness, then opt for moisturizers that are thick and creamy.
5. Hit the Heat :-
How to beat the hot sun? Simple – sunscreen! The sun’s rays are as intense in the winter as it is in the summer, so really, just keep that sunscreen handy at all times and reapply it every two hours when you’re out. So you can hit the heat and your dry skin.
6. Sleep Well
Lack of sleep makes your skin more sensitive and prone to dryness. Growth hormones that reproduce skin cells and stimulate the skin are released during the latter stages of sleep, making our skin healthier while we basically do nothing. You’re need to be taken 6-8 hours of sleep in a day.
TIPS FOR NORMAL SKIN :-
Exercise gets your blood flowing, oxygenating, and moisturizing your skin as you burn those calories. Even a simple run can work wonders for not only your skin but the health of your skin in general. Make a routine of exercise if you want glowing skin and a healthy body. Yoga with Meditation is like the boon for body and the face which keeps you healthy and makes you look prettier than ever before.
8. Things to carry when go out
Water bottle, cotton cloth, shades to protect eyes are some important things which you can’t ignore to carry when you go out and face the fiery sun. When you are out and feel irritation on face You are advised to wet the cotton cloth and put it on your face. It will surely give relaxation and you will feel fresh. Cover your head, face and hands with the cotton cloth.
9. Make water your best friend
At least 8 glasses of water are needed to be drunk in a day. Remember to drink at least once in every 30-45 min. Water not only helps you feel fresh, but it also prevents dehydration and will help wash out a lot of toxins. Drink more water slowly as it is good for the whole body and obviously gives best result.
