Taking care of your skin during summer

As summer approaches, the scorching heat consumes us slowly. Apart from the pollution which harms our skin, we also need to protect our skin from UV races and other infections. Sun damages can make your skin tanned, wrinkled and even leave black marks. The following are some of the things you can do to take care of your skin during summer.

Do not go out without wearing sunscreen:

Depending on the amount of heat you are being exposed to you need to choose your sunscreens. You need to make sure that you pick the right sunscreen with the right SPF to get maximum protection from the sun. Be very careful while wearing sunscreens with higher SPF and always choose sunscreens which protect you from the UV rays. Just because you are wearing sunscreen, it does not mean that you will be completely protected from the sun. Thus you need to hold an umbrella or cover your skin with a cloth so that it is not directly exposed to the sun.

Drink a lot of water:

During summer we get dehydrated so much, and the water content in our body reduces. When you do not have enough water in your body, your skin might shrink and make it look wrinkly. To have glowing and healthy skin, you need to make sure that you drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated. You can also drink fruit juices but try to avoid soda drinks as they are filled with sugar, and they are also not good for your health.

Gently exfoliate your skin every day:

If you happen to go out every day, dust and other particles get accumulated on your skin, and when you don’t wash your face after reaching home, the dirt clogs your pores, and this is one of the main reasons why you get pimples and rashes on your skin. As soon as you get back home, take a scrub and hit the shower. You can also use a deep clean face wash which will remove all the dirt from your pores and keep your face clean.

Apply plenty of lotion:

No matter how much water we drink, there will be plenty of evaporation from our body. To prevent water from escaping through our skin, we can apply lotion which will prevent excess water loss through your skin. The lotion also keeps your skin moist, and it helps you to keep your skin hydrated.

Eat healthily:

We all love to have a great summer body, but at the same time, we find it so hard to control ourselves from eating junk food. Try to eat veggies and fibre so that you will feel healthy. When you consume food which is filled with oil, you tend to get more pimples and marks on your face.
