5 essential skin Care tips to keep your skin glowing in the summer heat

Summers are here and so are its joys and challenges

Summer lovers can defend the season all they want, but they cannot deny that it wreaks havoc on your skin if proper care is not taken at the proper time. As it appears, the heat waves are getting worse, and our skin is one of the many casualties of this rising climate crisis. But how often do we make time to protect our skin before and after stepping out in the sun?

The scorching heat and the harmful UV rays can affect human skin in various ways. Dryness, skin sensitivity, sunburn, hyperpigmentation, and skin diseases like eczema, premature aging, and skin cancer are a few of its side effects. However, you need not worry; we’ve got you! Follow five basic steps to acquire healthy and glowing skin during the blistering summer months.

Hydration : First and foremost, your skin requires hydration inside out: Beauty comes from within, and therefore, to stay hydrated internally, sip lots of water throughout the day. To replace the moisture lost through perspiration, apply a hydrating moisturizer, preferably one that contains chemicals like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or ceramides.

Wardrobe selection: It is important to make the appropriate wardrobe choices that will significantly scale down skin exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun. Opt for airy, baggy clothes that let your skin breathe and cover most of your body at the same time. Adding sunglasses, UV-blocking umbrellas, and wide-brimmed hats to your summer attire is highly advisable.

Sunscreen is a must: Invest in a high-grade sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30 or above and shields you from both UVA and UVB rays. Ideally, fifteen minutes before heading outside, liberally apply your sunscreen to any exposed skin areas.

Developing a Wise Skincare Routine:  To get rid of perspiration, grime, and sunscreen residue, wash your face twice every day with a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser.  Frequent exfoliation and using a light-textured, non-comedogenic moisturizer after cleansing, keeps the skin nourished in the harsh summer weather.

Making well-judged outdoor plans: Avoid outdoor activities during the hottest hours of the day, extensively between 10 a.m and 4 p.m., or seek shade wherever possible whenever traveling outside. Plan your outings wisely.

Sure, saving your skin from the sun isn’t more SPF but less heat, but if you’re looking for an immediate formula to look young and healthy in the sweltering heat, these comprehensive skin care guidelines will help you combat your climate anxiety.
