Tips For A Glowing Skin This Summer

Summers are back with a bang...and so are countless summer skin woes! From skin ailments including sun tan, sun burn and dehydration to serious versions like blemishes, pimples and pigmentation – summers are notorious for ruining our skin. But you don't have to fret!
Take a heart and beat the heat this summer, maintaining your beauty and keeping your skin soft, supple and well nourished with these home-made summer skin care Tips 
*Cover your hair and face with a light colored scarf.

*Use sunscreen : Daily application of sunscreen is very important before stepping out in the sun. It would be best if you could reapply every two hours. Using a sunscreen according to the skin type protects the skin from damage and it also seals in moisture. Cover yourself with long-sleeved shirts, sunglasses to stay protected from the harmful rays of the sun.

*Exfoliate regularly : Pollution, dirt, sweat, etc. increase the amount of dead skin cells which build up on your face and body. Get rid of this with an exfoliating scrub or loofah a few times every week. Use liquid soaps but be gentle or else you could land up with rashes!

*Moisturize your skin : Use light water based moisturizers and sunscreens for both face and body. Stay away from thick oily ones as they will only clog your pores more.

*Use summer makeup : Use liquid foundation for a lighter, mineral-based powder with a minimum SPF of 15. Avoid cream based makeup and apply natural looking glow

*Practice smart hair removal : Do not shave or use a razor often on your skin, as they are drying in nature. Go for moisturizing shaving creams and gels to remove those unwanted hair.

*Keep yourself hydrated : During the hot weather, your body gets dehydrated quickly. Drink plenty of water to keep your body cool and skin hydrated.

*Diet : Prefer nimbu pani/lassi/coconut water to aerated drinks and coffee; eat light, nutritious, non-fatty and low-salt meals.
