From scorching heat to too much sun exposure, your skin goes through a lot during the summer season, which is why it is essential to hydrate the skin. Dryness, heat rashes, and acne are common problems in this hot season. Most people tend to ignore taking care of skin in the summer as their skin is not as dry or itchy as in the winter. However, our skin needs attention to keep skin problems at bay, even in summers.
How to keep my skin always hydrated?
During summers, keeping your skin hydrated is a must or it can become dry or flaky. The below tips will help you overcome skin problems and make way for that healthy, glowing skin.
Exfoliation is a very important step for a proper skincare routine, especially in summer to take off the oil and sunscreen. You need to exfoliate your facial skin at least twice a week to help get rid of all the dead cells accumulated on your skin. After cleansing, just exfoliate your face and voila! Soft, supple, and glowing skin.
Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Scrub is a great choice for your exfoliation needs. It has extra-fine particles that will make the whole exfoliation process easier.
Moisturizing is a must in summer! Yes, you read that right. Many people make the mistake of avoiding moisturizer as the skin is already greasy in this season. But you should not ignore this important step, especially if you stay mostly in AC. Artificially de-humidified air can dry your skin, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Make sure you get an oil-free moisturizer that contains an SPF of 30 or more.
We all know this, right? Lack of water can make your skin dry, firm and flaky. So, drink 7-8 glasses of water every day. If you are bored drinking the plain old water, then just jazz it up by adding some lemon juice or mint leaves or some cut fruits and ta-da, your flavored water is ready.
Include fresh fruits, fruits with high water content, and green leafy veggies in your diet. This will not only keep skin hydrated but will also give you a bright looking skin.
Using a good sunscreen is a must. Sun exposure can lead to wrinkles, premature aging, pigmentation, sunburns, and even skin cancer. Do not skip this step. Even if you want to apply makeup, you can do it after you apply your sunscreen. Always make sure to apply your sunscreen at least 30 minutes before stepping out. The benefits of sunscreen reduce when it gets washed off or not applied frequently. So, don’t forget to reapply it every 3-4 hours. In fact, it should be applied throughout the year, even during cloudy seasons and winters.
Always carry a good face mist
During summers, always carry a face mist. It comes in handy when you need some cooling down and instantly hydrates your skin. It also has a light emollient effect and suppresses the effects of saltwater, chlorine, and tap water. We recommend that you use the Pilgrim White Lotus Natural Face Mist & Toner. It is an alcohol-free formula that will hydrate your skin and restore your skin to its youthful luster.
Change your skincare products
Look out for products with natural ingredients and skin nutrition as they tend to neutralize free radicals from pollution and sun exposure in the summer seasons. Avoid using a creamy cleanser and better, switch to a sulfate-free face wash.
