Hence, it is important to take care of your skin all year round, especially in the summers when your skin is more susceptible to the harmful ultraviolet rays emitted by the sun during the day.
These ultra violet rays are the major factors that cause your skin to tan, wrinkle, redden (sun burns) and age prematurely. Many creams and lotions are available in the market for skin care but most are meant only for the winters.
One of the most important measures that are taken in order to maintain healthy skin in the summers is the application of a sunscreen for at least half an hour prior to stepping out of the house. It is advisable to always use a sunscreen with SPF 15 or more (the higher, the better).
Your body tends to get dehydrated during the summer as you sweat a lot more. Therefore, you have to make sure to consume a lot of water during the summers. It keeps your body hydrated. Water is also known to be the best skin cleanser – it leaves a nice glow on your skin!
Lightly moisturize your skin during the summers. Avoid heavy moisturizers as used during the winters as they may block the pores of the skin. The simplest thing that you can do for your skin is to keep it clean. Make sure to cleanse your face twice during the day. Use a good cleanser/ face wash. Creams containing Aloe vera and zinc can help in treating sun burns.
Keep your skin hydrated by using a hydrating cream and occasionally try the hydrating face mask. It helps in soothing the skin. Another important tip for beautiful skin in summer is to regularly exfoliate your skin.
Use an exfoliator that is mild and gentle on your skin. An exfoliator helps in removing the dead skin cells clearing up the pores and giving your face a new glow and a rejuvenated appearance.
Eat a lot of fruits and vegetable like watermelons, cucumbers, cantaloupes etc. They help in cooling the internal system of your body. Tender coconut water is also a good way of keeping yourself hydrated.
