Beauty care in summer / How to look beautiful in summer
Summer is the time to wear beautiful short dresses and to look radiant in them. Your beauty care regime should always be according to your skin type as well as the season. Before welcoming the warm summer mornings and long walks in the beaches prepare your body to beat the adverse effects of the summer heat, which can rain havoc on your skin and hair.
Summer skin care:
Do not assume that since winter is over you can skip moisturizing your skin. Moisturizing your skin is always important. It is all the more important if you have dry skin. The summer heat can lead to dehydration of your skin, making it lose its essential oil. The moisturized skin can fight off with the damaging sun rays and pollutants. To make your skin less oily use gel based moisturizer.
Exfoliation is an important skin care routine throughout the year. It becomes even more crucial to exfoliate during summer because during hot days excessive sweating and oil secretions leads to sticking of pollutants and dust to your skin. Exfoliating clears excess oil, dead skin and clogged pores saving you several skin troubles.
- Drink water
Drinking plenty of water is not only essential for keeping your body hydrated but it is equally essential to keep your skin hydrated and glowing. It’s ideal to drink up 8-10 glasses of water daily. Include lots of fruits, salads and veggies in your diet with high water content to maintain adequate water level in your body.
Sunscreen is your best friend in summer. Sun rays have many damaging effects on skin. It causes blemishes, brown spot, suntan, dryness and accelerates the aging process of skin. Never step out of house without wearing a suitable sunscreen which provides adequate sun protection. Sun damage to skin is hard to reverse so it is better to prevent sun damage than curing it.
- Use aloe vera:
Aloe vera comes to rescue of your many skin problems. It can be used as a soothing balm or as a cooling agent in hot summer days. Aloe vera has anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and moisturizing properties. So it cools the skin, reverses the damage and protects the skin from further damage.
Summer hair care:
Do not shampoo every day. It may cause more harm than good. Choose a shampoo that gently clears all the dirt and sweat out. If your hair tends to get greasier than use a mild shampoo than those having aggressive chemicals.
- Apply conditioner:
Summer heat dries up your hair too. Restore the lost moisture and life of your hair by using a good conditioner after shampoo.
