Tips to look after your skin in the summer season
As the hot summer months approach, our skin begins to undergo changes. Isn’t that so? With the constant heat and humidity, your skin begins to cry out for additional protection, displaying everything from irritating rashes and sunburns to a persistent tan and acne.
To avoid summer skin problems, you must immediately improve your skincare routine. Let’s have a look at how.
What Effect Does Summer Have on Your Skin?
As the weather warms and the humidity in the air rises, your skin’s sebaceous glands begin to produce more sebum (natural oil). The oil released sticks to the skin’s surface, causing stickiness, greasy, and clogged pores.
Acne outbreaks are the most prevalent summertime concern. People with oily skin are more susceptible to it because bacteria and oils in the skin mingle with perspiration, clogging pores and creating acne.
Melanin production increases when your skin is exposed to damaging UV rays in order to protect your skin from sun damage. Melanin is a photoprotective pigment. Excess melanin causes tanned, darker skin and other problems too.
How Should You Take Care of Your Skin During the Summer?
1. Use a Face Wash to Get Rid of Excess Oil
Oily skin can become even more oily in the heat. Use a face wash that is suitable for your skin type and capable of deep cleansing and removing all dirt and grime. A non-foaming cleanser is recommended for people with dry skin. Choose cleansers that are gentle, alcohol-free, and pH-balanced.
2. Choose a Skin Care Routine That Is Effective
Maintain a skin-care routine that you stick to. Gel-based (for dry skin) and water-based (for oily skin) products are lighter and non-greasy than cream-based products. Keeping your skin clean and fresh requires
3. Make Antioxidants a Part of Your Skin Care Routine
Antioxidant serums moisturise your skin like no other. Furthermore, they protect your skin from environmental harm, aid in collagen production, and scavenge free radicals to prevent skin damage. A good antioxidant serum should be part of your summer skincare routine. You can also include it in your diet by eating citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables, green tea, and so on.
4. Take care of your skin’s hydration.
During the heat, staying hydrated is essential. After washing your face at night, use a hydrating face mask for extra moisture while you sleep. To keep your skin fresh, splash it with water or carry a facial mist with you at all times.
5. Exfoliate to Maintain Skin Health
To eliminate excess debris and oil from the skin, use a face scrub at least twice a week. Only use a scrub that is appropriate for your skin type and massage it gently in a circular motion. Make careful to exfoliate your lips and neck as well.
6. Always use sunscreen.
UV-A and UV-B radiation from the sun can be quite damaging. They can induce accelerated ageing, age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles in addition to a hard tan. Even if you spend the most of your time indoors, a strong sunscreen with SPF 30-50 is essential for all skin types during the summer months. If you’re going swimming, we recommend applying sunscreen several times. 
7. Avoid wearing a lot of makeup.
Makeup that is too heavy inhibits the skin from breathing. The ability of the skin to breathe is also affected by humidity and heat. If you must wear makeup, consider using a tinted lip balm and a tinted moisturiser instead of heavy foundation and other cosmetics.
