Consume the right diet

Summer is capable of dehydrating you and your skin in equal measure which leads to scorched skin. This is when it's time to consume foods that hydrate skin inside and out. What are these? Fruits and vegetables that are not only rich source of fluids but also provide benefits of fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Also, opt for a lot of juices and fluids in the form of coconut water, melons, lemons and more.

Follow the right moisturising routine

While the prime function of a moisturiser is to hydrate your skin, it also needs to moisturise your skin without making it greasy. Which is why, summer needs you to pick a moisturiser that will prevent your skin from drying and will also heal your skin from all the summer damage. Try the Pond’s Silk Cream, a light luxurious non-greasy formula that contains silk extracts. It prevents dryness while the 24-hour moisture lock helps retain moisture to give you soft and silky-smooth skin.

Do not do away with the oils

Oils might seem like an inappropriate hydrating method for summer but they are not. Plant based oils not only luxuriously hydrate your skin but also shield it. Almond, coconut, argan, jojoba, olive, avocado, pomegranate, lavender - the list of oils is unending. Pick the right one depending on your skin type.

Things to avoid this summer

Summer is a good time to give all that caffeine a miss. Set aside all the black coffees and teas and make way for green tea. Also a good idea during the summer is to avoid alcohol, smoking and an aggressive cleansing routine.
