Change in weather during the monsoon means a change in one’s skin care regime. With oiliness, dehydration and acne being the main problems to deal with, prepare your skin during the challenging summer months, dust particles easily tend to settle on your skin which eventually damages the regular soft and toned look your skin possesses. Here are some tips to keep your skin healthy and glowing in this summer.
No matter what the weather is, never forget to moisturize the face and body. The most basic function of a moisturizer is to hydrate and soften the skin. A soft, smooth skin is often a result of moisturizing it with a water based moisturizer. Moisturizing should be done immediately after washing when the skin is still damp. Moisturizing at night is more beneficial to make the skin glow.
Wearing sunscreen, also known as sunblock, benefits your health in several ways. By protecting your skin from the sun’s ultraviolet, or UV, rays. Sunscreen use can help prevent skin cancer by protecting you from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. Always apply a sunscreen which contains high SPF, 30 minutes before stepping out in the sun. Sunscreen not only prevents skin darkening and skin damage but will also protect you from harsh UVA rays that can lead to skin cancer. Reapply the sunscreen every two hour and opt for a waterproof sunscreen. Try to stay indoors during 10 am to 4 pm as the sun rays are harshest during that time and can have adverse effects on the skin.
Exfoliation is the removal of dry/dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Skin shedding slows as you get older, and this can result in dry, flaky, and itchy skin. The first step to getting a glowing skin is proper exfoliation. Moisturizer alone cannot give a glowing skin unless it is exfoliated regularly. Exfoliation is necessary to remove the dead skin that gets accumulated on the face and other parts of the body. Gently rub this scrub in circular movements on the entire body for 3 minutes and then rinse off. Repeat this procedure 2 to 3 times a week.
Papaya can make your skin flawless, courtesy the active enzymes present in it. It helps reduce pigmentation and controls acne breakouts and wrinkle formation. You firstly mash the ripe papaya and then mix it with the lemon juice and you rub this mixture to all your face skin and neck area and Leave it on your skin for at least half an hour before using cold water to wash. Papaya has lots of water that leaves your skin moisturized and smooth.
Use a Toner
Toners are most helpful and necessary for people with oily or acne-prone skin, or for people who want extra cleansing after wearing makeup or other heavy skin products.
