1. Consider a Change When It Comes to Your Facewash
As you move from winter to summer, you should remember that your facewash has to change. While in winters, a nourishing facewash does the trick, in summers, you would require a face wash that can draw out the excess oil from your skin.
2. Include Antioxidants in Your Facial Skin Care Routine
Invest in a good antioxidant serum during the summer. Not only does an antioxidant serum hydrate the skin, but it also protect your skin from environmental damage. It helps to boost collagen production and eliminates damage.
3. Keep Your Skin Hydrated At All Times
Remember that summer is the time when your skin requires moisture as well as hydration. Invest in a good hydrating mask which you use a couple of times a week. Wash your face first and apply the mask as directed at night to repair, rehydrate, and soothe your skin. A mask can treat specific skin conditions like dryness, acne, oil, etc.
4. Exfoliate Regularly for Smoother Skin
Exfoliation is the key to brighter and smoother skin. It removed dulling skin debris and piled up dead cells. This debris prevents the skin from breathing and can congest the skin. Exfoliate with a natural home remedy, like coffee grounds mixed with oil and sea salt.
5. Invest In A Good Sunscreen
Sunscreen should be your best friend during summers. Choose one that has a broad ultraviolet spectrum (between 30-50 SPF and covers UVA and UVB rays).
