1) Stay Hydrated
There’s a reason mothers always say “Drink lots of water.” Our bodies tend to lose a lot of moisture in the summer, so it’s important to regularly replenish it with water. By drinking litres of it, your skin stays naturally soft and moisturised. Yes, it’s true, mom always does know best.
2) Avoid Aerated Drinks
Though advertisements tend to promote aerated drinks by showing a chilled bottle on a really hot day, avoid the temptation. We say this because though it might seem logical, it does more harm than good. Aerated drinks contain a high percentage of sugar which is bad for skin. Fresh lime, fresh fruit juices, aam panna or coconut water are all way healthier options for your skin.
By exfoliating your skin in the summer, you remove dead skin and improve blood circulation to your face. To make one at home, use 4 to 5 tbsps. gram flour, a pinch of turmeric, 5 to 6 drops of rose water and yoghurt. Mix these ingredients into a paste and use it to exfoliate your face. Your summer mantra should be ‘Exfoliate. Circulate. Radiate.’
