Ice popsicles, poolside parties, beach visits, and wearing breezy clothes are just some of the things we love about summer. And now that we are experiencing actual summer heat, it is critical to have a proper skincare and beauty regimen that cares for your skin and helps you look fresh in the scorching heat.
We often tend to overlook the apparent needs of our bodies, particularly our skin and hair. However, we have compiled a list of ten skincare tips to help you beat the heat. So put on your sunnies and prepare to slay your skin this summer!
10 Skincare Tips For Summers
1. Wear Sunscreen
We all love the summer tan, but we all know we will regret it soon. So in the summer, sunscreen is a must-have in your handbag. Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going outside to allow it to absorb into your skin and protect you from getting tanned. Choose one with a broad ultraviolet spectrum of 30-50 SPF that protects against UVA and UVB rays. It would be best to prefer a mineral sunscreen as it is better for your skin, blendable, and made with gentle ingredients.
2. Hair Mask for Protection
We often think that skincare involves the skin, but it does not differentiate when it comes to summer. The summer sun can be equally damaging to your hair. The hot and humid weather can cause excessive sweating on your scalp. Shampooing every day can damage your hair, so the best way to protect it is to use a protective hair mask at least once a week.
3. Aloe vera is your summer bestieThis medicinal plant can do wonders for your skin during the summer. Whether you consume aloe in the form of a juice or apply it to your skin during the season, it will keep you cool all day. When you forget to apply sunscreen, freeze aloe gel in an ice tray to treat those pesky sunburns.
4. Exfoliating is essential!
You've spent the entire day outside, and your skin would be dripping with sweat. Unfortunately, along with sweat, numerous dirt and germs cause your skin to appear lifeless and dull. Exfoliating removes tan and dead skin, but it also prevents clogged pores, which can lead to acne. Moreover, exfoliating is one of the top skincare tips that dermatologists swear by! We have suitable summer exfoliator masks for you in the variants Apricot Bloom and Lime Light.
5. Say Goodbye to MakeupResearch suggests that acne is aggravated the most during summers. Hence to minimize acne and further skin damage in the heat, applying heavy and massive amounts of makeup is a recipe for disaster. Instead of using foundation, try a light BB cream. Apply a little mascara and your favorite lipstick, and you've got yourself a go-to look for the season. Keep it light on the face to help reduce sweat throughout the day.
6. Don’t be shy to moisturize
A moisturizer can help protect your skin during the summer. The process of nourishing and healing damaged skin is only the beginning. Try to find a moisturizer with UV protection, like the DeBelle skin moisturizer Green Tea Infusion. It is super lightweight and contains antioxidants and rich green tea extract that protect your skin. Moisturizing helps retain the skin's natural moisture while also preventing excessive oil production — two essential qualities for the hot summer months.
7. Hydrate your skin
Keep in mind that summer is when your skin requires both moisture and hydration. Invest in a good hydrating mask that you use twice a week. After cleansing your face, apply the mask as directed at night to repair, rehydrate, and soothe your skin. A mask can treat specific skin conditions such as dryness, acne, and oiliness. You can pick out some Hydrating DeBelle Bio-Cellulose Sheet Mask formulated with Cucumber extract that helps restore adequate moisture.
8. Use of a Refreshing Toner
A good toner can assist you in closing open pores. This is especially important in the summer to prevent oil buildup in the open pores. The t-zone of the face has the most sebaceous glands and will appear the slickest during the summer months. While toning your face, pay close attention to this area.
9. Remember to Look After Your Feet!
Our primary focus is on taking care of our faces because they are the first thing people notice. But don't forget that your feet carry you around all day and require attention. Exfoliate the skin on your feet regularly. If you intend to wear open footwear, apply a moisturizer and sunscreen to your feet.
10. Drink a lot of water
An essential component of healthy skin tissue is water. It keeps your skin soft, supple, and radiant. Remember to bring water with you wherever you go and to drink at least 2-3 liters per day. Water is also essential for flushing toxins from the skin.
The hot weather requires extra care and attention for your skin, so you're ready to bring in the summer glow and pamper your skin with all of the above tips and suggestions!
