Stay hydrated, stay cool
The relationship between water and summer is an ideal one. As the temperature soars, the need to drink water increases. Drink plenty of water, and don’t forget to take a bottle of water with you wherever you go. Keep drinking from the bottle at regular intervals. This is important to keep the skin hydrated, remove toxins from the body, and feel refreshed in the hot summer. This tip will work and keep extra oil at bay. You can also include some Detox drinks that will provide added benefits while breaking the monotony of plain water.
Fruits, vegetables & healthy diet
As important is water for a detox, water base fruits and green vegetables are equally important to include in your diet. Add a lot of water-based fruits and green vegetables to your diet to help your skin glow from within. Try to add lemon, papaya, cucumber, watermelon, and orange to your diet to enhance the nutrition of vitamin C. You can easily add these to salads or make one of them into a detox drink. Watermelon and cucumber are high in water content and have a cooling effect on the body. Also, now that summer is here, why not eat that kind of mango-passion fruit that can protect your skin from DNA damage and inflammation. Pomegranate, bananas, grapes, and strawberries also have a great effect on the skin. Talking of vegetables, choosing green leafy vegetables such as spinach is an excellent way to obtain antioxidants.
A 30-minutes workout
A 30-minute workout can improve blood flow, which means your skin cells will absorb more oxygen. Therefore, your body can easily heal any tissue damage, such as sunburn or acne. Add some fun to your exercise routine, try Zumba. Better yet, ride a bike, play volleyball with friends or try hiking. Any form of exercise is good for your health. If you like to dance, why not try dancing at home? Keep a towel and a water bottle handy whenever you exercise. And to add to anything, it is amazing for your skin and body.
Take it easy, buddy!
Don’t overburden yourself with work, exercise, or anything else in life. Never underestimate the power of taking breaks and resting in life. Sleep well so that you can wake up with fresh and glowing skin. Your body needs time to repair and maintain healthy skin. This is crucial because in summer, the days are longer and most of us tend to work for a long time. Prolonged exposure to the sun can also cause dullness and signs of aging.
Don’t underestimate the power of a good face wash
Regardless of the season, cleansing the face is the most basic skincare procedure. During this time of the year, your face tends to produce more oil, so you need to change the face wash accordingly. Never go for a face wash you have been using as your mother told you so! Mothers and grandmothers can provide amazing home remedies, however, while choosing a face wash, depends on the skincare experts. For Oily skin, face wash with salicylic acid works the best as per the recent studies. If you have dry skin, use a non-soap facial cleanser twice a day to clean your face. Those with normal skin can switch to a gel cleanser in summer. Wash twice or three times a day to restore energy.
Exfoliate, tone, and moisturize
In summer, your skin works hard to maintain its health and heal any irritation or sunburn. Exfoliation helps to fade dead skin cells and make your skin look radiant. You can use a homemade sugar scrub to exfoliate or use a towel to gently wipe the skin. However, please make sure that you do not dab the skin excessively. Further, toning is important for the skin. A good toner can keep the skin oil-free and clean. It can also reduce the appearance of pores. When applying toner, pay attention to your T zone, because it is the oiliest part of your face, especially in summer. After toning, apply moisturizer to your face and you are done!
No leaving home without sunscreen
Make it a thumb rule to not go out of the house without sunscreen. The sun provides you with vitamin D, but because your skin cannot withstand harmful ultraviolet rays and therefore it is not recommended that you spend a long time outdoors in the sun without applying sunscreen. Excessive exposure to UV rays can permanently damage your skin and cause sunburn, wrinkles, fine lines, skin cancer, and premature aging. Invest in sun cream or sunscreen with a wide UV spectrum, at least SPF 30. Apply it to all exposed areas of the skin twice a day.
Make lemon your best friend
When combined with a variety of natural ingredients, lemon juice is a secret ingredient that can be made into an excellent mask and scrub. You can make various face masks, such as aloe vera and lemon mask. Mix aloe vera gel and lemon juice thoroughly and apply it to your face. Keep it for 15-20 minutes, then wash off with cold water. Another lemon mask is lemon, besan, and raw milk mask, which is a basic Ubtan with some rose water. Generally, this is an excellent way to lighten skin tone and remove stubborn tan. Lemon is an ingredient. When used frequently and mixed with various ingredients, it can help you get clear skin and complexion over time.
