If you thought summer skincare is overrated then, you dear have given up on yourself. Your skin does a tough job of keeping harmful pollutants at bay. So, you would be an ungrateful person if you don’t give your skin the care it deserves. Pimples: Check, Dull skin: check, rashes: check. Wondering what this checklist is for? It’s what you would be ticking off if you leave your skin uncared for in summer. Don’t cry yet! We care for your skin and have curated a list of beauty tips to follow in summer that even your grandma would approve of.
1. Some aloe love
Why it works: Heals sunburns? Cures acne? Softens dry skin? Tell us more! The good old Aloe Vera contains vitamins A and C and is rich in skin exfoliating enzymes that remove dull skin cells.
How to do it: Natural aloe gel is the best way to reap in the benefits of aloe vera. But, if you don’t have that, any store-bought aloe gel would also work.
Result: Clear, bright skin that beams sunshine!
2. Honey, don’t forget that, honey!
Why it works: Honey isn’t just for pancakes. It contains lysozymes, flavonoids, and phenolic acid that have antibacterial properties and fight acne.
How to do it: Apply a thin layer of honey on your face, keep it for 5 minutes and wash it off with cold water.
Result: Goodbye, acne, and hello, beautiful clear skin!
3. Power hydration
Why it works: The summer sun will turn your face into an arid desert. Your skin needs liquids to circulate the nutrients, and drinking sufficient water is the only way to do that.
How to do it: Don’t just drink, replenish. We suggest dissolving 2 tablespoons of lime juice in a jug of water and consuming it at regular intervals.
Result: Smooth, clear, and hydrated skin.
4. Fruity freshness
Why does it work: Ever wondered why your face looks inflamed, loose, and patchy even after months of skincare? That’s because your skin needs antioxidants. They are potent molecules that can reverse the sun damage and soothe your skin.
How to do it: Feed your face some fruits, please. How? Mash some bananas, strawberries, and oranges to make a smooth paste. Apply it on your face and wash it after 15 minutes.
Result: A squeaky, smooth, and firm skin that you can’t stop touching!
5. Sleeping beauty
Why it works: You might be a night owl but, your skin isn’t. It needs ample rest to boost collagen formation and renew damaged skin cells. Yes, beauty sleep is real!
How to do it: Do you seriously need a tutorial on this?
Result: A healthy and divine glow on your face.
