Summer Skincare regimen
The best skin care regimen during summer months should include cleansing, regular exfoliation and moisturising twice a day. These easy maintenance skincare regimen tips will not only make your skin glow, but also keep it protected and nourished.The sun’s rays are more intense in the summer compared to the winter months. UVA/UVB rays not only damage and age the skin, but exposure to them also puts you at risk for developing certain skin cancers.The best skincare regimen for summer would be per following:
Cleansing twice a day
Your skin sweats more when the air is hot and humid. To help your skin appear less shiny but hydrated you should include cleansing the face twice a day with a foaming or gel-based cleanser. Wash away an overnight built up oil and sweat first thing in the morning and double cleanse your skin with your regular face wash at night after you removed your make up.
Your skin can appear dry and dull if you don’t exfoliate it on a regular basis. Through hot summer days your skin will produce excess oils, but a regular exfoliating can help the skin look effortlessly glowing. Glycolic acid will help to get rid of excess oil, dead skin cells and smooth out the skin’s surface. Glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliating formula, which can be used once a week for the best results.
Day time moisturiser with SPF
Apply a lightweight moisturising formula on a damp face every morning after cleansing. Try avoiding heavy day creams as they might clog the pores and cause acne related skin issues. Your daytime moisturiser should protect your skin with broad spectrum SPF against UVA and UVB rays, so that your skin doesn’t get sun-burnt or get affected by premature ageing due to sun damage.
Moisturise at night
Night creams are usually heavier and more hydrating for the skin. They are designed specifically to rejuvenate your skin while you are asleep. Consider trying a face cream formulated with Aloe Vera, which is a naturally hydrating ingredient. It can deliver much-needed moisture to summer skin that has been exposed to harmful UVA and UVB rays through the day.
