As the hot summer season approaches, we all want to know some tips and tricks to protect our skin from the radiating hotness of summer. Before considering any skincare tips it’s important to remember that no tricks and tips can save you if you’re skin is not hydrated, so make sure you are hydrating your skin regularly.
Now here are 5 steps to protect your skin this summer:-
Double Cleanse: As your skin produce more oil during summers it’s important to keep your face cleansed. For this, you can use an oil-based cleanser to remove the excess sebum produced on your face. For the second part, you should use a water-based cleanser, to remove sweat and impurities which will prevent acne and pimples.
Sheet Masks: In summers it’s important that even the outer layer of your skin gets enough moisture. For this, you can use a hydrogel sheet mask. The sheet masks are an integral part of the Korean skincare routine. That’s why using a hydrogel-based sheet mask will soothe your irritated skin, caused by the harsh sun.
Lightweight Serum: Irrespective of your skin type you need to moisturise your skin in the right amount to avoid any kind of dryness due to constant exposure to AC or loo.
Lightweight Moisturiser: Many people have a misapprehension that moisturisers are only required during winters. However, for healthy skin moisturising should be a regular practice in your routine. As summer sweat makes your skin heavy, you can use a lightweight moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated.
Sunscreen: Sunscreen is the most important part of your summer skincare routine which you cannot afford to miss. India is already a tropical country and summers are extremely harsh here, hence exposure of bare skin directly to the sun even for a short period can damage your skin. That’s why it’s recommended to use a higher SPF sunscreen mostly 50 SPF with PA+++. SPF will protect your skin from burning and UV rays and PA protects you from dark spots.
