Summer season means cute floral dress, vibrant makeup and dewy skin. But it also means greasy, icky skin. The constant exposure to heat and increased humidity takes a huge toll on our skin making it dull, dry and lacklustre.
But, you don’t have to let this heat take a toll on your skin. That’s impossible, you say? Well, not anymore! Here are some amazing skincare tips that will ensure your skin gets through summer looking absolutely glowing and radiant. Wanna know what they are? Read on to find out…
- Exfoliate regularly
- Switch to a lightweight moisturiser
- Drink plenty of water
- Eat water-rich foods
- Apply an overnight serum
Just because winter is over, doesn’t mean you need to stop exfoliating your skin. The constant sweat and oiliness attract a lot more dust and grime. Your daily cleansing routine is not enough o get rid of the build-up. We suggest you use the St. Ives Radiant Skin Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub at least two to three times a week to keep your skin looking radiant all through the summer months.
Switch to a lightweight moisturiser
A lot of women make the mistake of skipping the moisturiser completely during summer. However, let us tell you that you need to moisturise your skin all year round; switch to a lighter formula during summer. Give up your rich and creamy winter moisturiser for the Pond’s Super Light Gel Oil Free Moisturiser as it intensely hydrates the skin without leaving it even a tiny bit greasy.
Drink plenty of water
Your body tends to lose a lot of water during the summer months, thanks to all the sweating. This is one of the main reasons why your skin feels so dehydrated and dull all the time. To compensate for this loss of hydration, it is important to increase your water intake. Drink a minimum of eight to ten glasses of water throughout the day to maintain optimal skin hydration.
Eat water-rich foods
Glowing, hydrated skin is a combination of skincare products and a balanced diet. If you continue eating foods that are fried or high in sugar, it will definitely reflect on your skin, making it look really dull and lifeless. Therefore, increase your intake of foods that are rich in vitamin C and include water-rich foods such as cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, apples, etc. in your diet to keep your skin well hydrated.
Apply an overnight serum
Serums are full of antioxidants and active ingredients that work overtime to revive, repair and rejuvenate your skin. Using a hydrating serum at night will ensure that you wake up to soft and glowing skin. We suggest you use the Lakme Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum which is packed with the goodness of argan oil to provide the skin with the nourishment it needs.
