The right summer skin care routine goes a long way in keeping your skin clear and glowing. The scorching heat of the sun during summers does absolutely no favour on our skin, and might also cause considerable damage if not taken proper care of. In order to prevent breakouts and minimize sun damage, it’s important to take summer skin care routine seriously. Clueless as to what that entails? Don’t worry, we are here to list down some skin care tips for summer in India that will help you tackle all the skin care challenges that the hot weather brings.
Below are some summer skin care routine tips that you can keep in mind and try following for the next few months!
Cleansing your skin is the first and the most important step when it comes to summer skin care routine. It’s best to use a gentle lightweight, non-comedogenic, fragrance-free cleanser that isn’t formulated with pore-clogging ingredients. During summers, your skin gets sweaty and oily, and you may feel the need to wash your face frequently. However, it isn’t advisable to wash your face with a cleanser more than twice a day. Instead, if your skin is super oily and you find yourself sweating constantly, keep some blotting papers handy.
Exfoliating your skin can help prevent pimples, blackheads, and clogged pores, making it yet another essential step of summer skin care routine for oily skin. However, don’t go overboard with the exfoliation as your skin can become irritated from over-exfoliating. Instead, limit exfoliation to once or twice to whisk away dirt and debris within your pores.
Toning is also an important step of summer skin care routine that helps prep your skin for moisturizers and serum, while also getting rid of the last traces of dirt, and minimizing your pores after cleansing. We suggest trying Organic Harvest Green Cucumber Toner which is oh-so-refreshing and has cooling properties that also help soothe your skin during summers.
Vitamin C serums are extremely beneficial during summers, and can help prevent hyperpigmentation, remove blemishes and improve the appearance of fine lines. Vitamin C serum can also help reverse sun damage, and should especially be incorporated into summer skin care routine for dry skin. We recommend MyGlamm 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum which has a mineral-oil-free formula that is enriched with antioxidant pomegranate, licorice, and marula oil. It is light-weight, quick-absorbing, and non-sticky, making it an excellent serum to use during summers.
You must have wondered if using a moisturizer is necessary, especially when it’s so hot outside and your skin already feels oily. While yes, a heavy moisturizer can make you feel uncomfortable during the summers, that’s no excuse to ditch moisturizer altogether! Instead, you can opt for a lightweight moisturizer that has an oil-free formula that can help hydrate your skin without making it oily. Oriental Botanics Aloe Vera, Green Tea & Cucumber mattifying moisturizer contains SPF 30, and has a lightweight, deep-nourishing formula that your skin will love!
Applying sunscreen is THE most important step of your skin care routine in summer, and should not be skipped, no matter what! Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher to protect yourself from the harsh and damaging UV rays. It’s important to not just apply sunscreen to your face, but also on all exposed parts of the body to keep yourself protected. If you’re not a big fan of the slight white cast that sunscreens leave behind, you can opt for tinted formulas that can blend easily with your skin tone. Just make sure you keep reapplying sunscreen every 2-3 hours, in case of prolonged sun exposure.
