How to keep your skin hydrated in summers?

Summer is not everyone’s favourite season, after all it creates havoc when it comes to taking care of our skin. With the weather changing, our skin requirements change too. During the hotter months, it gets all the more difficult to keep the skin soft, protected and glowing because of the harsh rays of the sun. Then there’s pollution and dirt to add to the trouble. While we may not be able to follow every beauty ritual necessary to protect our skin, an essential point to remember is to keep it well hydrated. Whether you spent your summer in the sun or at the office, our faces need a little extra love after the harsh summer heat and changing weather.

1. Moisturise Your body loses a lot of moisture during summers. So, it is essential to hydrate your body every now and then. So, it’s important to follow the ritual of cleansing, toning and moisturising at night before sleeping. You could use milk and honey, which are great natural moisturisers for the skin.

2. Don’t forget sunscreen Use a sunscreen whenever you step out. This is crucial as sunscreen helps in shielding your skin from harmful UV radiations that bring about the early onset of skin ageing.

3. Stay low on makeup Sure, we all love to apply makeup but during summers you need to keep it low. To protect the skin’s natural glow, the most important thing is to stay away from heavy makeup and we must surely take it off before sleeping to let the pores breathe.

4. Use soothing ingredients like tomato. A good way to keep your face fresh and cool during summers is to use tomatoes, which are a great source of antioxidants. Mix tomato and lemon juice and apply it all over your face (you could also make ice cubes of it). Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash with cold water. It will cool your skin and keep it hydrated too.

5. Cleanse and exfoliate. Cleanse your face twice a day and scrub your skin two to three times a week to get rid of dirt and grime from deep within the pores.

Why should sunscreen be your skin’s best friend?

Why should sunscreen be your skin's best friend?

Sunscreen is important for all skin types. Even if you don’t burn easily, wearing sunscreen is extremely important. Sunburn is an immediate reaction, but sun damage occurs over a lifetime. Although skin cancer is more prevalent in people with lighter skin, it does not discriminate and can still affect those with darker skin colour. Sunscreen decreases the risk of developing deadly cancer. It also keeps you looking young. Did you know the number one cause of premature ageing of the face is ultraviolet exposure.  Sunscreen helps prevent discolouration and dark spots from sun damage, helping you maintain a smoother and more even skin tone.Choosing the best sunscreen can be tough.Whether it’s cold or hot, sunny or rainy, sunscreen is the one step you should never skip before heading outdoors for the day.

Skin care routine

No matter how much busy we are because of working out in the gym, attending meetings, meeting friends we all must take out sometime for our dear skin. We must create a skin care routine and follow it daily too. It will not just make our skin more fresh and clear but it might even reduce signs of ageing. It is really important to take care of our skin and keep it hydrated.

YOUR TWICE DAILY SKIN CARE ROUTINE

1. WASH YOUR FACE- Clean skin is happy skin! So wash your face with a good face wash or cleanser that suits your skin type. You should wash your face twice. Once when you wake up and then before going to bed to remove the dirt and oil that may have built up on the surface of your skin.

2. USE A TONER- Put some toner on a cotton pad and swipe it across your face. A toner helps in tightening and shrinkage of pores.

3. APPLY SERUM- Serums are concentrated formulas which target specific skin issues. Regular use of serum helps in lightening of scars, pimples and other marks.

4. MOISTURIZE- Using moisturizer two times a day is super-important. It helps your skin to stay young and even fights wrinkles.

5. USE AN EYE CREAM- It helps to reduce dark circles and puffiness. Apply it after moisturizing, morning and night.

6. SUNSCREEN (ONCE DAILY)- Sun protection is an extremely important step of the skin care routine. In the morning, apply sunscreen after moisturizing but, before applying makeup. It does not need to be to used at night. You should try to reapply sunscreen at least every two hours. And there you have it: A skin care routine you can follow daily.

What would the beauty world feel like without beauty blogs?

What would the beauty world feel like without the beauty blogs?

In our free time, all of the girls, like nothing more than scrolling through our favourite Instagram blogger or our favourite beauty influencer. Imagine being in a world where you have nobody to guide you on how to maintain that flawless skin or how to mix two foundations to get the perfect shade or how to do the perfect nail art. Is that even a world anymore? We could be going out to a party with no makeup or we could be sitting at home with a lot of it. Our skin allows us to experiment with so much and with literally every shade out there. So, when I thought beauty and lifestyle is what I am going to talk about, I thought it is really important to tell all of you who are reading this right now that BEAUTY in no way, is synonymous with MAKEUP. But, I just want to use this platform to share what I like and what I don’t, review the products which I feel would be helpful to the people reading it and give a few tips here and there.
