Skin care in summer may look like a time consuming and tedious process but let’s admit it the season does bring a lot of problems. However, with the right ingredients in your summer skincare routine, most problems can be tackled easily. While you may have heard about the goodness of aloe vera and rosewater to keep your skin healthy in summer, did you know lavender too can be quite beneficial?
Lavender is a natural antibacterial that combats acne and blemishes as well as keeps infections at bay. It also increases skin cell regeneration to give you that healthy glow. Plus, the calming fragrance of lavender calms your senses and relaxes your body. Here are some of our favourite lavender infused products your skin needs this summer.
01. Soothing gel
A lightweight gel moisturiser is perfect for summer, especially for those with oily skin type. It absorbs quickly into the skin and does not make skin greasy. Using lavender for skin will soothe itchy and irritated skin and keep it healthy and glowing. What’s more, lavender helps control sebum production and heals acne. So, if you are battling body acne this summer, a lavender gel can help solve the problem.

02. Calming lotion
Believe it or not but dry skin can get drier during summers. The sun robs moisture from the skin, exposing it to cold temperature in an air conditioned room further makes it dry. It is important to use a body lotion with calming ingredients like lavender. It will maintain your skin’s moisture barrier so that it’s not too dry or too oily. We believe it is a summer must-have for anyone with dry skin.
03. Relaxing body wash
The harsh rays of the skin can leave you with inflamed skin and rashes, especially if you step out without adequate sun protection. Apart from applying a calming body lotion or gel you should also replace your body wash with one that contains lavender. Since it has anti-inflammatory properties, using lavender for skin will soothe sunburns and reduce the redness.
