Beauty tips to deal with summer heat

LifestyleBeauty tips to deal with summer heat

We know that sweating is a natural human bodily function, yet the heat and sweat can cause skin problems, like clogged pores, blackheads, acne, pimples and rashes. However, there is no cause for despair, if you can follow a few beauty remedies that can keep skin problems at bay. The golden principle of skin care is Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing, which cannot be done away with at any cost. Cleansing of the skin assumes importance, in order to get rid of the sweat and oil deposits. A proper routine of CTM helps to keep the skin moisturized and restore the normal acid-alkaline balance of the skin, so that eruptive conditions like pimples and acne are prevented. Protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays by applying a sunscreen, before going out in the sun, on the face and exposed areas of the body.
Select a sunscreen or sun block with a SPF of at least 20 or 25. For sun-sensitive skin, apply a higher SPF of 40 or 60. If the skin is dry, a sun block cream should be applied, while for normal to oily skin or combination skin, a sunscreen gel is more suitable. The sunscreen should be applied about 20 minutes before sun-exposure, to allow it time to be absorbed by the skin. It should be reapplied if you are in the sun for longer than an hour at a stretch. The effects of the sun increase near water bodies and snow, as they reflect the sun’s radiation. In the treatment of skin pigmentation, skin protection with sunscreens is an important aspect. For make-up, heat and sweat need the careful choice of cosmetics. Heat can stimulate the oil and sweat glands further, making the skin oily. So, you should select matte products that are oil-free. Matte products do not contain mineral oil and other oils. Using matte products help to control the oily look. Rose water is an ideal ingredient for toning the skin. It contains plenty of vitamins, like Vitamins A, C, D, E and B3. Rose water suits all skin types. Use chilled rose water to protect the skin from heat and pollution, refresh the skin and add a natural glow. It has antioxidant properties too, providing youthful skin and sealing natural moisture. Mattifier is a magic product for people with oily skin. The prime objective of applying a mattifier is to cut down on the production of oil in order to preventing the skin from becoming greasy and excessively shiny. The mattifier may be a light powder, or a matte moisturiser. They should help to absorb oil, reduce oiliness, shrink the pores and minimize blemishes. To keep the area around eyes smooth, wear eye primer. An eye primer is applied on the eyelids, before applying eye shadow. This is due to the fact that eye primers make eye make-up last longer and also prevent creasing. To ensure that your face looks smooth and lustrous throughout the day, moisture is important. A cooling mist does just that in a more effective manner. A fine spray of mist can quench your skin’s thirst and restore the balance, adding an attractive glow. At the end of the long day, make sure you give full attention to your night skin care routine. Remove make-up at night. Using a chilled sheet mask will relax your face and provide it hydration. A sheet mask is a single use product which provides quick moisturisation and skin benefits. Aloe Vera or Cucumber masks can be prepared at home and then kept in the refrigerator to cool them before applying. You can also use a lip balm at night.
