Summer can really take a toll on your skin but that doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors and miss out on all the fun. Everyone wants to have a clear skin and here I’ve compiled a few tips that’ll keep your skin glowing all summer long.
First, wash your face twice a day but with only mild soap. Washing your face with hot water opens up pores and cold water closes the pores back. So wash your face with hot water followed by cold water to have protection from the environment.
Next, reduce cosmetics as much as possible at least during summer. Cosmetics clog up pores and if you really must wear makeup, use only hypoallergenic products that are usable on sensitive skin. Wash your face with cold water before putting on makeup and also ensure that everything is washed away before you retire to bed.
Its not just important to splash water on your face but also to take in lots of water. Consume lots of water, preferably more than eight glasses a day to detoxify your body. Taking in adequate amounts of water will clear away toxins and make your skin glow. While you are at it, also make sure you are taking in a balanced diet that include lots of vegetables, fruits and nuts. Natural vitamin A and vitamin E found in fruits and vegetables are great for glowing skin.
Protecting your skin from the summer sun is also very important. Whenever you are going out in the sun, make sure you use plenty of sunscreen and also remember to wash off once you return indoors. Sunscreen left overnight can clog the pores and prevent the skin from breathing.
If you do have any pimples or sores, don’t pick any of them. Picking on pimples can leave scars that’ll be difficult to remove. For such skin abnormalities, consult your doctor and only use skin ointments or medicines that are gentle on all skin types. Finally, don’t stress out. Stress is really bad for skin and the more you stress, the quicker you age. Follow these tips, live stress free and you’ll have glowing skin not just this summer but even many others to follow.
