summer-tipsYear after year, people fall in love with the summer because of the great outdoors, fresh air and sunshine. However, no one ever falls in love with oily skin, acne breakouts or sunburn that is also an inherent part of summer. The change of season doesn’t just mean that you have to change your wardrobe; it also means that you have to change the skin products you have been using. Skincare products that keep the skin comfortable and moist during the winter will leave it sweaty and oily when the humidity and heat hits. This means that the beauty loot has to be switched for the summer season:

Here are 5 tips that can prove to be very useful for people in helping their skin transition into summer:

1-     Beating Breakouts

Sweat is not the extra moisture that you see on your face in the summer. When the weather is hot, the oil glands under the skin become more active. Hence, this means that your skin will get oily and this increases the chances of breakouts. Matters seem to get worse for people who are prone to skin problems such as acne, pimples etc. Therefore, it is time for people to switch to lighter products such as water-based moisturizers rather than oil-based ones.

2-     Protecting Against Sun

Makeup products usually contain a lot of ingredients that will not suit the skin in all the humidity and heat. Instead, one should stock up on sunscreen to protect their skin from sunburn. The risk of skin cancer is also high if your skin is exposed to too much sun. Titanium and zinc based sunscreen and foundation should be chosen as they can reduce the oil and are much lighter in comparison.

3-     Getting the Red Out

Hydration is an important rule to follow in the heat. People should drink plenty of water in the summer as this will flush the face and soothe any redness. Drinking lots of water will help in detoxifying the skin and keep it supple and soft in the summer.

4-     Exfoliatingskin-tips-for-summer

As compared to the rest of the year, it is more important to exfoliate your skin in the summer season as this improves blood circulation to the face and removes the dead skin cells. While there are plenty of cosmetic scrubs available in the market, it is recommended that people make their own at home. Natural and homemade scrubs are more beneficial and don’t have any negative impacts on the skin. Nonetheless, people should ensure that they aren’t allergic to any ingredients contained in the scrub or this could lead to an infection.

5-     Toning

Once you have cleansed your face, the next step for achieving glowing and perfect skin in the summer is toning. While unwanted toxins are removed through cleansing, toning ensures that the skin remains fresh and vibrant. It provides the skin with the moisture it needs and balances the pH for promoting healthy skin. Toning also eliminates skin problems like pimples in the long term.
