Less frequent exfoliation is required in summer season as compared to winter season. Exfoliation helps to bring new, fresh skin to the surface of the body, which in turn will give you more glowing, clear skin. It will also help the skin to begin producing new skin cells more efficiently, giving clearer and healthier complexion. As During the more humid months, however, when we are spending more time outdoors, the dryness of skin begins to fade for most of us, and exfoliation is therefore only required once per week or once every 10 days or so to avoid dead cells which led to pimples and clogged pores.
Hydration is the key
Heat in summers led to dehydrated complexion by which skin looks really dull and tired. So moisturize your skin with non-comedogenic light moisturizer as it will not clog your pores in humid and heat weather. And you can also refresh your skin by spraying a revitalizing toner spritz or rose water at your desk, in the car, at the gym or at the plane!
Make H2O your best friend
Higher temperatures and more time staying at outdoors leads to internal dehydration, which can result in headaches as well as dizziness. 8 to 10 glasses of plain, filtered water every day helps to maintain moisture balance of the body and skin, and assist in detoxification internally. If you drink caffeinated beverages, you must triple the amount of water you drink and try to include fruit and vegetable juices in your summer season routine.
Soothe over-exposed skin
As high temperature effects skin badly so if you forgot to apply your sunscreen and your skin has exposed to sun for a long time then unfortunately the damage has occurred..!!! so don’t worry make your skin soothe by applying “after sun cooling gel” or you can also apply “aleovera gel” for making your skin soothe. But if these gels are not available at the time so rub ice cube on face for few seconds, it will also make your skin calm.
Protect your hair strands from the sun
Make a daily habit of applying a hair care product that contains UV filters in it. It can be in spray, gel, or cream formula. UV filters products protect hair from sun damage and help to keep color-processed hair from fading. If you’ll be spending lots of time outdoors, try to cover your head with hat or umbrella, it will keep your strands from getting scorched.
Moisture is food for healthy hair
In summers you may be washing your hair more frequently to deal with summer’s sweat and grime. So try to switch to moisturizing shampoo and conditioner which is sulfates free ( sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate) to avoid dehydrated hair and hair-fall. And try to follow deep conditioning mild hot oil treatments to give hair deep moisturization and lustrous shine.
Minimize the use of heating tools
Heating tools are culprit for making hair dry, brittle and damaged. Hair can lose their shine and look dull and unhealthy. Frequent use may create split ends. People with extremely thick and curly hair may experience more damage to their hair because it takes longer to straighten it. However, some of the damage and negative effects of using heating tools can be minimized by using heat-protection spray or serum and can be combat by using deep conditioning treatments.
Use a wide- tooth comb or dentangling brush instead of a regular brush
Wide-tooth combs and detangling brushes are most gentle for untangling hair, as brushes can pull and tear when they snag strands. Detangling spray or serum can also be used for smooth combing of hair and always start combing strands from downward to upward. And never comb your hair when its wet because wet hair is weaker, fragile and more susceptible to breakage. Try not to rough-dry hair with a towel, and instead gently press the water out.
