4 Summer Skin Must-Haves


Every passing day the temperature is rising and the days are getting longer. With the sun in its full glory and unavoidable outdoor adventures, we are bound to sweat heavily, get dehydrated and what not. That’s why it's essential to prioritize self-care and protect our skin from the harsh summer conditions. Throughout this blog, we'll explore four essentials to keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing.

Here’s a list of skincare products for summer:

  1. Cleansing: Nourishing Your Skin

The very first step towards healthy skin in summer is to cleanse it. In summer the atmosphere is more humid which increases the sebum production, leading to clogged pores and acne breakouts. To avoid such instances, incorporate a gentle face wash to remove dirt, oil and impurities.

Massage your face in a circular motion by taking a pea-sized amount of face wash focusing on oily-areas and T-zone. Doing this will allow your skin to breathe and clear away the sweat, bacteria and other harmful impurities. Also, it creates a pathway for absorption of other skin products into the internal skin.

  1. Protecting: Your Shield Against Sun Damage

To define it in fictional terms, Sunscreen is your superhero which protects you from all the harmful radiation and damage done by the sun. Whether you're going for work or just lounging by the pool, you should not step out without applying sunscreen. It should always be your first line of defense against harmful UV rays.

While shopping for sunscreen in summer, go for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 40 or higher to shield your skin from both UVA and UVB rays based on your skin type. Reapply it every two hours, especially if you're outdoors.

  1. Hydration: The Key to Healthy Skin

Hydration is the key to skincare in summer. Our skin loses moisture more rapidly due to increased sweating and exposure to the sun. Therefore, it's essential to choose products that effectively retain the moisture.

Aloe Vera is your best friend in summer. Not only does it provide deep hydration, but it also has soothing properties, making it a perfect partner for calming skin that has been exposed to the sun. Similarly, hyaluronic acid is another key ingredient to consider. It is known for its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, providing intense hydration to the skin without clogging pores or feeling heavy.

Using a hydrating formula containing these key ingredients into both your morning and nighttime skincare routines, you can ensure that your skin remains soft, soothing, and hydrated all summer long.

  1. Exfoliating : Restore Your Skin's Glow

Summer might affect our skin in many ways, but it is the perfect time to slough away dead skin cells and reveal a fresh glow underneath. Exfoliating the skin regularly smoothens your skin, removes dead skin cells, and improves skin texture.  

Choose a gentle scrub with natural exfoliants like walnut to reduce dullness and reveal brighter, smoother skin. Use your exfoliating scrub 2-3 times a week, focusing on areas prone to dryness and congestion, like the T-zone and chin and say hello to a luminous summer glow.

Additional bonus tips for the summer:

Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. You should drink at least eight glasses of water a day, and increase your intake if you're spending time outdoors or exercising.

Wear protective clothing: Cover up with lightweight, loose-fitting clothing, sunglasses, and wide-brimmed hats to shield your skin from the sun's UV rays. This helps to prevent sunburn and reduces the risk of sun damage.

Avoid peak sun hours: Avoid leaving home between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun's rays are strongest. If getting outside is unavoidable during these hours try finding a shade, or carry an umbrella with you.

Rehydration: After a long tiring day, your skin feels parched and dehydrated. Use the sheet mask, your secret weapon for instant hydration and refreshment. Sheet masks are infused with nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and botanical extracts that penetrate deep into the skin, delivering a surge of moisture and nutrients. Pop on a sheet mask for 10-15 minutes whenever your skin needs a pick-me-up.
