Whenever we talk about skin health and care, mostly people tend to think about winter and autumn in which it is needed. However, summer with its scorching heat and humid weather equally needs special skin care and cleaning. At this time of the year, the sun rays are pretty sharp and contain a lot of UV rays which cause too much damage to skin if left untouched by the beauty department. Skin care in summers is not a very difficult task though, all one needs to do is cleanse and moisturize skin regularly and never forget to keep the body hydrated.
Some of the steps one can take to prevent skin damage in the hot days of summer are mentioned below. All these steps are very easy and do not require the waste of time or money.
Lemon is considered as a bleaching agent and is an excellent source for cleansing the skin and preventing it from getting tan. The people with oily skin can apply lemon without adding anything however if you have dry skin, mix a tablespoon of honey in 1 tablespoon lemon juice and apply on skin. Wash after 15 minutes and you will have a fresh and clean skin.
Use plenty of water on the skin by having a face mist. You can make face sprays at home as well by using only one or two ingredients. If you don’t like the idea of spraying anything on the face all day but water, than fill plain water in a spray bottle and spray after every few minutes. This is an excellent tip for those who have to stay out all day as this keeps the skin hydrated.
Moisturizing is not for the dry cold seasons but is important for skin throughout the year. Even in the humid days where one sweats a lot, moisturizing the skin is equally important and beneficial to keep the skin healthy and hydrated. Due to very hot weather and continuous sweating, the body loses the water content more quickly than one can imagine and this causes dehydration and dryness. To prevent this, one must keep the skin moisturized by washing the face or using a face spray and also by applying a very light thin moisturizing cream with a very thin consistency. Whenever you shop for cosmetics, always ask for a summer cream whose only purpose is to moisturize the skin. Before buying a product, always know your skin type and that which products suit you.
Umbrella is not used just to prevent from getting soaked in the rain but also helps a lot when travelling in the sun. It is advisable to always carry an umbrella whenever going out in the sun as it helps to create a barrier between your skin and the scorching sun rays, lessening the chances of dehydration or heat stroke.
One cannot deny the benefits of a sunblock when going out in the sun as it is one of the best ways to protect the skin and body from damaging UV rays. However, one must check out the type of sunblock they are buying before using it. Your sunblock should not be too thick as it may block the pores and prevent the skin from breathing.
