The harsh rays of the sun pose a high risk to your skin. Pigmented, dry, rough, and listless skin are just some of the problems. Follow our tips and you will do great!
1. The right sunscreen
Opt for SPF 50 in your sunscreen. This shields 97% of UVF rays that causes premature ageing, including skin darkening. The Lakme Sun Expert 50 SPF Tinted Sunscreen comes with a unique formula that blends into the skin perfectly and does not leave a patchy white residue.
2. Reviving facewash (which does more than just clean):
The Urban Veda Reviving Rose Daily Facial Wash has jasmine and evening primrose extract that hydrates deeply keeping summer skin supple. Rosehip and Indian arjuna in the formula soothe mature skin.
3. Replenish with a facemask:
The Mirabelle Dual System Facial Mask Sheet is quite the go-to this season as it has charcoal – the trending beauty ingredient that cleanses, exfoliates and balances oily skin. The mask also has pearl elements that cools summer skin.
Another great beauty brand that has deeply nourishing face masks is The Face Shop. Choose from everything from aloe vera and green tea to pomegranate and potato, depending on what you need. Get products from The Face Shop at 50% off from April 16th-18th online and offline at Lifestyle Stores. Don’t miss out on this great deal!
4. Change to a stronger moisturizer:
The Lotus Herbals YOUTHRx Anti-Ageing Transforming Crème contains the singular Gineplex Youth Compound which is anti-aging and perfectly suited to keep the ill effects of the summer sun at bay.
5. Protect Your Lips:
Most of us tend to ignore the fact that the summer sun is equally harsh on lips, not just your face. The Sugar Tipsy Lips Moisturizing Balm has shea butter, jojoba oil, and Vitamin E – on point care for your lips!
6. Exfoliate once a week:
Depending on your lifestyle and exposure, you may work out your own schedule but do not overdo. The Lotus Herbals Probrite Illuminating Radiance Exfoliator comes with a special ‘Probiotic Active Complex’ that nullifies the ill effects of pollution, even while getting rid of dead skin.
7. Hydrate with veg juice:
Add a glass of vegetable juice to your everyday hydration. The power-push of vitamins and minerals will bring on a subtle skin glow. Lauki or water gourd, cucumber, tomatoes may all go into your summer drink. Avoid the sugar spike of fruits in this glass of good health.
8. Massage with face tools
Spend a few minutes everyday massaging your skin with face tools from House of Beauty. The light stimulation improves blood circulation and promotes lymphatic drainage that removes excess toxins from your skin. It will help clear your skin of blemishes and acne and firm and tone it.
9. The sleep factor:
New research continues to link deep sleep to good health. Growth hormones that help repair damaged skin and allow for better absorption of nutrients in your night crème are activated during deep sleep. Hence the term ‘beauty sleep’.
10. Cooling foods:
This benefits your overall health and keeps the largest organ in your body – your skin – glowing. Add more foods such as cucumber, watermelon, lime juice, curd, coconut water, greens, onions (yes, they’re a must in the summer) and mint.
11. Exercise daily:
Do not skip your daily exercise just because the mercury is soaring. Exercise pushes up blood circulation and brings on the instant skin glow. Change your timings, exercise indoors if you must – but do not miss!
Enjoy the summer. Be a cool beauty!
