Start early and take care of your skin before the summer heat makes it difficult to transition into a whole new skincare regime. Find out more
It’s starting to get really hot and there are literally numbered days till the summer days are here. While we are definitely excited to bring out the big guns and take our summer dresses out for a spin, we’re also sceptical about the summer heat taking a toll on our skin. This is literally the issue with every season and while the temperature and weather changes end up changing our wardrobe, it also changes the way we look at skincare.
If you are someone who does not like to switch things up when it comes to skincare, it’s time to rethink your regime. The products that worked for you in winter will do no good in the summer season. You’re bound to add a few more steps to keep the skin hydrated and nourished in the summer heat. So, while you stay put with your usual CTM routine, here are five home remedies to keep your skin nourished during the season.
A face mist is clearly a must during hot days. Just like your body needs hydration, your skin does too. Make sure to have a spray bottle around you all day and spritz a generous amount every few hours. This will keep your skin looking soft and hydrated.
You can directly use a store-bought bottle of rose water and call it a day (if you’re lazy like us) or take the time out and make your own organic rose water. For this, you’ll need to boil water and let fresh and clean rose petals soak in it overnight. While straining the liquid in a spray bottle, you can add a few drops of your favourite essential oils to the mix and voila you’re ready!
Cooling face mask
One of the best ways to keep yourself refreshed is by trying out face masks. They contain all the nourishing ingredients that the skin needs and depending on what your skin feels like, you can alter the recipe.
Here’s an easy 2 ingredient recipe that’s a fan favourite:
You need two tablespoons of tomato puree and one tablespoon of honey. Apply this mixture to your face and leave it on for 10 minutes. If you feel very oily, you can even add a teaspoon of gram flour to soak away the excess sebum.
