Skin problems in the summer season like sticky face, sweaty makeup, pimples, and tanned skin are common. Do not let summer destroy your skin glow and enjoyment. Follow my summer beauty tips to take care of your skin this summer.
Here are the summer beauty tips that will help you to look fresh this summer season.
1. Keep The Skin Clean
This is the most important step for maintaining summer beauty. In summer, our skin goes through sweat, pollution, dirt all day. In this condition, it becomes very important that the skin is cleaned properly so that it can also breathe well.
That is why it is important to clean face and neck 3 times a day with the best face wash followed by a suitable toner to avoid clogged pores, oil, and bacteria.
It is necessary to clean face once a morning and once at night before sleeping. Upgrade your face wash according to your skin during summer. Always keep chemical-free face wipes handy with you during outdoor activities to remove any bacteria.
It is also a good idea to use ice cubes on the face to keep your skin fresh in summer. If you want crystal clear acne-free skin, then you cannot ignore this summer beauty tip at all.
2. Don’t Forget To Moisturize
Do you think your skin needs moisturizing only in winter? Not at all… Because hot air and excessive sunlight can dehydrate your skin and take away your glow in summer, so in that case, it is important to keep moisturized your complete skin. And not only that, when we spend a lot of time air condition or cooler, our skin becomes dry also. Because of which wrinkles and fine lines can be seen on the face.
While moisturizing your face and neck, don’t neglect your body. Keep your entire body moisturized even when you are indoors. Buy moisturizer or lotion according to your skin type. In case if you have naturally oily skin then go for oil-free moisturizer and SPF and look fresh all day.
3. Wear Sunscreen Everyday
Sunscreen is the product that can not be ignored in any season. It is important to wear sunscreen each and every day of the year. The rays of the sun are strongest between 10 AM to 4 PM. Even, cloudy days can’t block UVA and UVB rays during the day. So what to do?
The simple solution, apply sunscreen every day before going out in the sun. You know that if you go out in the sun without sunscreen, then problems like tanned skin, wrinkles, premature aging, and dull skin will occur. It is recommended to reapply sunscreen every two hours, even after swimming also.
If you like wearing short and sleeveless dresses in summer then apply sunscreen on your arms and legs. Don’t neglect your elbows and knees also because a harsh sun can make them dark and dry. Stay sun safe during your fun times.
4. Eat And Drink Healthy
In summer, not only does the sun damage your skin, but your bad eating habits also harm your skin health. Eat healthy like fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables and drink at least 8-10 glasses of water to maintain healthy glow during summer. Say no to junk food at parties also.
Even at your own summer party, you can keep healthy options for eating and drinking. Avoid artificial sugary drinks. My personal choice is buttermilk and coconut water to keep my body hydrated. What is your choice?
5. Don’t Forget Lip Care
The increasing temperature in summer can make your lips dull, dry, and dark. Protect your lips from UV rays and always keep them moisturized. Always carry a lip balm with you that is enriched with natural ingredients to nourish your lips. You can also use SPF protected lip balm. I prefer to use an orange lip balm with SPF for myself every day.
The next beauty tip for lips care is exfoliation. Just like our face and body, our lips need to be exfoliated. Use a homemade brown sugar and olive oil scrub to eliminate dead skin layer. But remember if your lips have open cracks then do not exfoliate them until the cracks are healed.
6. Wear Less Makeup
Less is more…summer is the best time to be make up free but if you still want to do makeup then say no to rich and deep shades of makeup and invest in some sheer shades. Start with oil-free moisturizer then apply sunscreen.
Sunscreen is important to apply even when you are using makeup with SPF. Typically, many beauty products contain only SPF 15 or SPF 20, and dermatologists always recommend to use SPF 30 and above.
Next in summer beauty tips is to try waterproof proof makeup products that last under the water. Because you don’t want your makeup to flow in the water at the pool party. In summer there are lots of options available for makeup lovers like smudge-proof eyeliner, swimmable lipsticks and eye shadows, waterproof mascara, and concealer.
7. Exfoliate For Clear Skin
Exfoliation is also a must to remove dead skin cells from skin in summer. Follow this step with your regular cleansing, toning and moisturizing regime to get healthy and smooth skin. By sweeping the dirt, oil, and other debris from your pores, you can help your skincare products better penetrate the skin, thus making them much more effective.
Exfoliate your face and the entire body is also important to remove tanned skin. Gently scrub your entire body once a week by using DIY homemade scrubs to get a silk body. Exfoliate only once in a week is sufficient. Don’t overdo this step.
8. Maintain Hygiene
In case of excessive sweating, we must take a bath twice a day in summer with antibacterial soap. People who suffer from body odor can add a few drops of lavender essential oil to the bathwater. A regular bath after swimming and exercise session helps in keeping you clean, fresh, and odor-free.
After bathing, dry your body thoroughly and do not forget to apply deodorant. Investing in one of the best deodorants in summer can keep your mood fresh and happy all day. Fresh and natural fragrances like citrus, fruity, oceanic are most welcome in summer.
9. Go Natural With Home Remedies
Once in a week, pamper your skin with natural homemade packs and scrubs. These natural packs will eliminate the dullness of your skin and make it fresh and shiny.
Apart from this, it is important to indulge these packs in your summer skincare routine because it reduces the effects of harsh sun rays on the skin. Combine different ingredients to prepare body and face packs and scrubs. My favorite is honey with cinnamon and aloe vera face pack. What is yours?
10. Care For Hair
We have got tips for face beauty in summer but what about our hair. We have to make them look beautiful. Let’s start with hair care. Make sure to use a mild shampoo to clean your scalp regularly if you out in summer every day. Shampooing can help to get rid of dirt and oil from the scalp. Do not forget to use a conditioner to provide strength and shine to your hair.
This was the hair care; now let’s talk about cool summer hairstyles. Ponytails, braids, top knot buns are classic summer looks for long luscious hair. You can also switch off your regular look with amazing cool haircuts. Ask your hairstylist to cut your hair according to your hair type and length.
11. Invest In Summer Accessories
This is a list of accessories that you should invest in before the summer arrives. Sunglasses are on the first number in the list. Never leave a house without sunglasses in summers. Sunglasses protect your eyes from sun rays and give you stylish looks. Don’t buy cheap material. Just invest in quality and with the quality, your sunglasses should be UV protected as well.
Next are hats, wide-brimmed hats are not only fashionable, but they provide great sun protection in summers. Consider more accessory options like stunning statement jewelry pieces, scarves, cool bags, and flip flops.
