Not using the right moisturiser
Lot of people leave out moisturising in the summer because it leaves them feeling sticky. But this doesn’t happen if you’re using the right moisturiser. We love the Vaseline Healthy White SPF 24 Lotion that has SPF 24 and PA++ prevent UVA and UVB rays from darkening the skin. Its non-greasy texture will keep you fresh while its Vitamin B3 content will also inhibit melanin transfer which means it doesn’t affect the colour of your skin.
Shunning the sunnies
Sunglasses might have earned a reputation as a fashion accessory, but don’t forget, they also serve very good purpose when it comes to protecting your eyes. A well-fitted pair of UV-protected sunglasses prevents sun from damaging your sight, helps your eyes remain moist and obviously, make you look amazing.
Skipping the SPF
We’re sure you know how important SPF is and yet, you get lazy enough to skip it and think your clothing will provide adequate protection. Sadly, this isn’t true as fabric can’t fill in for a good sunscreen. We suggest, no matter what you’re wearing, slather on the Lakmé Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 50 PA +++ all over your body before stepping out. The broad spectrum formula will protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays while prevent darkening.
Over-washing your skin
It’s alright to find your face perspiring and oil glands going into overdrive during the summer. What isn’t alright is overzealous washing, exfoliating and scrubbing multiple times a day to drive it away. Not only is this a no-no by dermatologists, it will unnecessarily dry your skin out and leave it feeling worse. Instead, choose the right skin care routine for your skin and keep blotting sheets handy.
Not taking tanning seriously
No matter how much you try; thanks to the scorching sun, you may find yourself looking a few shades darker. A part of this package is also a grimy skin tone and dull skin cells. Make a smart choice and treat tanning from the get-go with the Pond’s White Beauty Sun Dullness Removal Daily Facial Scrub. With its TanSolve Beads, it encourages quicker cell renewal so that your bright complexion shows through soon.
Over-doing your beauty routine
With excessive sweat and constant greasiness, one’s skin goes through more than enough this season. What can make this worse is an overload of toners, creams and foundations. Not only will this block the already-troubled pores, it will create more skin problems. So keep it light by sticking to a summer skin care routine and protecting your skin from the sun.
