Tips for skin during summer
As the hot summer approaches, our skin begins to alter. Isn't it? With the constant heat and humidity, your skin begins to cry out for additional protection, displaying everything from irritating rashes and sunburns to a persistent tan and acne. Here are some tips for skin during summer –
- Start making your skin-care routine more fun –
Because of the heat and humidity, you can use a light, foamy cleanser instead of a heavier cleanser (think cream or oil cleanser). The Best of Beauty Award-winning AHC Aqualuronic Cleanser is one of our favourites because it's light but moisturising.
- Use a dual-purpose moisturiser -
Most people may only need a mild moisturiser with an SPF of 30 or more.
- Face Wash to Get Rid of Extra Oil –
Oily skin can become even more oily in the heat. Use a face wash that is suitable for your skin type and capable of deep cleansing and removing all dirt and grime. A non-foaming cleanser is recommended for people with dry skin. Choose cleansers that are gentle, alcohol-free, and pH balanced.
- Hydrate your skin –
During the heat, staying hydrated is essential. After washing your face at night, use a hydrating face mask for extra moisture while you sleep. To keep your skin fresh, splash it with water or carry a facial mist with you at all times.
- Exfoliate the skin –
To eliminate excess debris and oil from the skin, use a face scrub at least twice a week. Only use a scrub that is appropriate for your skin type and massage it gently in a clockwise direction. Make careful to exfoliate your lips and neck as well. Apart from all these steps, make sure to wash your face twice a day.
