Brave The Heat With These 5 Skincare Essentials!

Cleanse, Cleanse, Cleanse!

On a hot summer day, you may want to cleanse your face more than twice to get rid of dirt and impurities. You’re on the right track! Cleansing is the key, but over-cleansing can cause dryness and harm your skin’s lipid barrier by eliminating natural oils. The best way to shun greasiness and grime is to get your cleansing game on point. It’s fairly advisable to stock up on cream-based and gel-based facial cleansers that leave your skin moisturised. So, what are you waiting for? Now is the time to get a natural, soothing facial wash.

Water Your Skin!

Precaution is always better than cure. Drinking plenty of water is essential for our health; similarly, spritzing a soothing mist on your face will be your go-to skin quencher. For this parching weather, you definitely need to have a hydrating face mist on hand. Face mists are made to boost your skin’s hydration level and restore pH balance. They are a typical amalgamation of skin-saving toning agents and essential oils.

Hydration Mode On

Exposing your skin to the scorching heat can increase dryness, itching and flakiness. The complaints are endless! Because the warm weather season is one of those uninvited guests who intrude on your vacay plans every year. To be honest, you would really want to gravitate towards lightweight water- or gel-based moisturisers during hot weather. Switch to creams that have aloe vera, cucumber and green tea as their key ingredients.

Scream Sunscreen

What do we reach out to on a hot summer day? A hat, a pair of wide-rimmed sunglasses and cotton clothes. And, what about wearing sunscreen? Damn! No summer day is complete without slathering a good amount of sunscreen on the revealing parts of our body. Studies suggest that slapping a good amount of sunscreen on your skin can prevent you from getting heat rashes, sunburn, and pigmentation. Reach out for a water-resistant, non-greasy and fast-absorbing formula as it will be your best mate to battle the sun rays and brave the sea. Don’t forget to reapply sunscreen every two hours for maximum protection.

Mask Away Your Skin Woes

Want to leave your skin feeling supple, soft and ready for your day in the sun? The cue is a nourishing sheet mask, which is a great antidote to all your dry skin woes! Face masks will penetrate higher concentrations of active ingredients in your skin. On a sunny day, we reckon face sheet masks as the best treatment for dry, dull skin.

Tell us about one product that you simply cannot live without in the summers. Bag these babies soon!
