Summer, sun, holidays, beach and poolside fun. Summer is certainly a glorious time. However, let’s not forget that the summer sun can be hard on your skin and it is necessary to make an effort to protect yourself against its damaging effects. We wished to take part in your efforts and hence emerges a list on how to keep yourself prepared for Summer.
Re-evaluate your skincare routine: Summer skin is an entirely different thing from winter skin. If you have been using heavy oils and creams all winter to fight dry skin, you will want to consider something lighter this summer. Possibly, an upped SPF in anticipation of more hours to be spent outside.
Start exfoliating now: Scrubbing your whole body in shower may seem to be a tedious task, but it genuinely makes a huge difference not only in overall skin health but also in its ability to absorb moisturizing products. Get into the habit early and often.
Go for lighter makeup: Summer is hot and no one wishes to walk around with face full of makeup. Not only will it likely smudge as you sweat, but also will lead to clogged pores. Let your skin take advantage of the warmth of summer and get comfortable with different products that are not too heavy.
Keep your hair healthy: The healthier your hair during summer, the less sun, chlorine and sea salt damage you will encounter with. Deep conditioning your locks once a week with handful of coconut oil or mask is one of the most effective ways to be considered.
Stop ignoring your feet: When summer finally graces us with its presence, don’t ignore the feet and toenails and sport an open-toe. Be proactive with your foot care. Show your nails and cuticles some care it deserves with an oil designed for them.
Detox: Consider detoxing a bit with whatever fresh produce you can get your hands on. Whether it’s adding a scoop of greens to your morning diet or experimenting with new dishes, it will surely help you to get the energy to go out and actually welcome the weather with open hands.
