Different seasons affect our skin in different ways. Most people experience dry, rough skin in winters; acne, pigmentation marks and rashes are common summer skin issues.
Heat and sweat can take a toll on your skin. Taking the right skin care tips will keep your skin looking radiant, smooth and healthy this summer:
Start your day with sunscreen. Before stepping out in the sun, apply a good amount of sunscreen on your face, neck and hands. A minimum of SPF-30 sunscreen can protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays.
Prolonged or excessive exposure to the sun, especially in the middle of the day, can increase melanin production and cause dark spots and pigmentation.
Sunscreen wears off easily because of sweat. Keep applying it every couple of hours.
Clean your face thoroughly
Good skin care starts with cleansing. As we sweat more in the summer season, it is important to clean the face at least twice a day (morning and night).
Use a gentle cleanser to get rid of dirt, oil, and traces of sunscreen and makeup from the face. After cleansing, do not forget to tone and moisturize your face. Toner is helpful for unclogging pores, while moisturizer hydrates the skin.
Keep yourself hydrated
Drink at least 8 glasses of water in summers. This will keep you refreshed and hydrated and wash out toxins from your body.
Exfoliation is a must in the summer season. Heat and pollution can cause skin discoloration and breakouts. Regular exfoliation removes dull and damaged skin, leading to smoother and youthful skin tone.
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective manual exfoliation procedure for removing facial hair, peach fuzz and dead skin. It involves the use of a surgical scalpel to scrape off dead skin layers. For the best results, contact a qualified aesthetician for dermaplaning treatment.
Invest in regular facials
Regular facials can help minimize breakouts and rejuvenate dull skin, leaving you with soft, radiant skin.
