Come summer and your skin becomes a mess with conditions like dryness, acne and sun tan getting even worse. And what do you do? Cuss the sun and carry on with your usual skincare routine, knowing full well that it won’t do you or your skin any good. But what if we told you can get flawless, healthy skin even when the temperature is at an all-time high? The key to summer-proofing your skin lies in your skincare regimen and the products you include. 

We’ve rounded up three skincare essentials you can’t miss out on to beat the heat. Stash these in your arsenal for the hot days to come...

SPF to shield skin
 

SPF to shield skin

With summer slowly sneaking in, you need to stock up on sunscreen or an SPF infused moisturiser. SPF protects skin against UVA and UVB rays which can cause sunburn, sun tan and dark spots. Never step out of the house without applying SPF-rich products. Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Lotion and Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturizer SPF 24 PA++ will give you all-day protection against damage from exposure to the sun. 

Vitamins for skin health
 

Vitamins for skin health

Healthy skin equals happy skin, and the health of your skin in summers depends on the nutrients it absorbs. Vitamins such as A, B3 C, E and F are essential for your skin to fight signs of ageing, dullness and dryness that follow with sun exposure. We swear by Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Serum for your face and Ponds Triple Vitamin Moisturizing Lotion for your body to get youthful, soft skin even in the scorching heat.
