These rough conditions make it essential to have a regular and effective routine to take care of your skin and maintain its health.

Especially for people who are blessed with slow ageing oily skin, it is essential to use cleansers and cooling gels to keep the sebaceous glands under control. Here are some easy yet effective tips that can be followed to protect your skin from being damaged:

1)  Cliché but important, use a sunscreen lotion:

Using a sunscreen lotion that helps to filter out the UV rays attacking your skin is very essential. The intensity of UV rays is much higher in the summers. For Indian summers, using a sunscreen lotion with Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of about 30 is advisable. Make sure you apply the sunscreen at least 20-30 minutes before stepping outwards. Be liberal with the application and do not hesitate to use it multiple times through the day as the sunscreen only works for 4-5 hours after which you need to apply it again to protect your skin. Use a waterproof sunscreen if you wish to do water activities.

2)  Routines always work best:

Routines always help to protect your skin better. A diligent routine of cleansing, moisturizing and toner application twice a day will help in maintaining soft and supple skin throughout the year. Acne breakouts are much more frequent during the summers, using a cleanser that is soap free and contains salicylic acid is best to control such uninvited breakouts. It is advisable to use a water based moisturizer during the summers. Rose water is one alternative for the same, it has dual properties and acts as a moisturizer cum toner.

In summers drinking lots of water and staying hydrated is essential. Eating fatty and oily foods made of wheat and excess fatty substances provokes acne outbursts. Eat clean, it is the best way to maintain your skin. Drink fresh juices and eat plenty of vegetables. Consume vegetables like carrots that are high on Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps in maintaining the texture of your skin and also helps to keep it supple and blemish free.
