Whether you are spending your summer indoor or outdoor, it’s important to check on your skin more often than in any other season. The heat and humidity of summer can be little or a lot harsher on your skin, depending on your skin type & routine. Although we can’t do much about its type, we can try to maintain it with a better routine. So here’s how you can make one today:
- Hydrate your skin:
Load up on fruits rich in antioxidants like vitamin C, Vitamin E, Carotenoids, etc. Include these fruits in your diet frequently: Watermelon, Pineapple, Grapes, Papaya.
- Be stringent about your 8-hour beauty sleep:
A well-rested skin keeps the stress hormone named cortisol controlled. It protects your skin from being exposed to skin problems induced by stress like acne, dark circles, puffiness, etc.
- Have a consistent and minimal night skincare routine:
Your skin deserves to be pampered but that doesn’t have to burn a hole in your pocket. Work out an ingredient that works best for your skin type & stick to it. Turmeric with its high antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties has proven to be a superfood for the skin, and Vicco has simplified skin care routines with this superfood at the heart of our products. Check out Vicco’s WSO cream for a rejuvenating experience for your skin.
- Wear sunscreen, even indoor:
Get yourself a sunscreen that is water-resistant and has a SPA minimum of 30. It protects your skin from UVA & UVB.
- Use a facewash with cooling effects:
This can be a cool break for your skin against the sweating & oiliness summer brings with it. Vicco’s Turmeric-based facewash has cooling effects that soothe your skin & refresh it.
- Stay away from carbonated drinks:
When you are feeling parched or dehydrated, reach out for a glass of water or homemade drinks like nimbu pani, juice, etc. Carbonated drinks have little or no nutritional value and they might make your skin prone to breakouts.
- Go for comfortable cotton:
Summer is the time when you cannot afford to choose fashion over comfort. Choose breathable fabric, lighter shades, and baggy clothes.
