Your body sheds skin cells at an amazing rate every minute of every day.
If you don’t get rid of them, they’ll just set in on your skin making you look dull and dry.
No matter how much lotion you use, you’re never going to have glowing skin if you don’t exfoliate. Grab a body scrub and hit the shower. Gently rub your exfoliator in circular movements on your entire body from the shoulders down you’ll want a facial exfoliator for your face and neck and rinse clean. Continue to do this 2-3 times a week for year-round beautiful skin.
The thick creams you were using through the winter months won’t do you any good now. Pack them away or use them for very dry areas of your body like the feet. Summer months need products that let your skin breathe naturally. Go for lighter lotions and serums. Products that block pores can cause more problems.
“Water-based moisturizers work best for normal skin types. For oily skin, gel-based moisturizers are preferred. For extra oily and acne prone skin, stick to facial sprays with minerals good for your skin’, says Dr. Deepali. “Natural moisturizers like glycerin and rose water added to the bathing water helps a lot and applying plain curd for 5-10 minutes on all dry areas of the body before bathing works wonders too,” she adds.
During summers less make-up is best. Under the intolerant sun, natural looks are best. If you intend to use foundation then also apply face powder with SPF to avoid patchy skin. To protect your lips always use a gloss or a lip balm with an SPF of 15 to make your lips fresher. Eye make is something which should be very much avoided in summers.
Drink lots of water and don’t forget to carry a water bottle with you wherever you go. Keep sipping from your bottle. This is important to keep your skin hydrated, flush out toxins from your body, and feel refreshed during the hot summer days.
