Best Beauty Tips To Follow In Summers: Health Trends
Summer means heat, lots of sweating, dryness, skin problems like tan, sun burns, pimples, heat rashes, blemishes and much more. With the blazing sun of the summer months, you need to know how to look after the skin properly and look fresh and vibrant.
Just using a good sunscreen is not enough for your skin in summer. You need to take proper care of your skin and hair too. (Beauty Tips, tips for summer, skin care, health trends)
Moisturizing is absolutely essential. Simply moisturize, there are no two ways about it. You may think that winters are over, and skip that part of your regimen, but no, not happening.
The problem with summers is the extreme heat that dehydrates your body and makes your skin dry. Dry skin is prone to damage and dullness, and you need to butter it up to make up for the moisture loss. The moisturizer acts as a barrier for pollutants, bacteria, and sunburn.
Choose a non-greasy, gel/water-based moisturizer that contains vitamin E, and slather it every day on your skin to keep it moisturized and supple.(Beauty Tips, tips for summer, skin care, health trends)
For any treatment or cream to work on your skin, it needs to be clean. For that, you need to exfoliate at regular intervals to slough away the accumulated dead skin cells that are clogging your pores and forming a layer on your skin.
Exfoliation also makes your face a better canvas to apply makeup on. Make sure you alternate between homemade and market-bought exfoliators to maintain a balance.
Also, do not exfoliate every day because that can cause over scrubbing of the skin and lead to redness, rashes, and breakouts. Exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week using a circulatory motion. Preferably in the evenings, and not right before you go for a swim or out in the sun.
3. Drink Up
Yes, drink up and loosen up. We mean water, lots of it. The problem with summer is, it makes you sweat a lot, making your cells lose water quickly.
To maintain moisture levels in your body and not feel weak or faint due to dehydration, you need to keep a check on your drinking (water) game and get it right.
Ideally, drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day and include lots of fresh juices and fruits with high water content in your diet.(Beauty Tips, tips for summer, skin care, health trends)
4. Use Sunscreen
Do you step out in the sun without wearing a sunscreen? You should not, because it is a necessary step you need to follow in summer and every other season to protect your skin.
Protect your skin with sunscreen before it gets damaged by the sun, because, let me remind you, prevention is better than cure. Sun rays are a cause for many skin issues, such as dry skin, brown spots, and fine lines.
Choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 (at least) and apply it generously on your skin. Reapply it every few hours.
Anything that blocks your skin pores is a big no-no. Because clogging of pores leads to skin irritations, infections, and the most dreaded one – acne breakouts!
Your daily use skin care products have to be non-comedogenic, because pore blocking products can cause dead skin cells and bacteria to pile up on your skin.
Also, you are continually sweating in summers, and you do not want that to combine with the oily and pore blocking products on your skin and result in more havoc.(Beauty Tips, tips for summer, skin care, health trends)
Aloe vera comes to the rescue for a lot of skin problems. During summers, especially, it turns into a soothing balm, cooling off your skin after a long day in the sun.
Aloe vera is anti-inflammatory and moisturizing. It calms the skin and nourishes it intensely. It also contains antioxidants that protect your skin from damage.
Either pluck fresh aloe vera and scoop the gel from the leaf to apply it to your skin, or you can choose from the many aloe vera products available in the market.
It all comes down to that, doesn’t it? A healthy diet – an excellent mix of fruits, vegetables, nuts, cereals, and pulses. A fine balance of all the nutrients that your body requires.
During summers, increase the intake of raw or boiled food. Include as many fruits and veggies in your meals as possible – go for salads, smoothies, and juices.
Make sure you are getting enough calcium as well. Also, nuts are an excellent addition because they are excellent for your skin.(Beauty Tips, tips for summer, skin care, health trends)
