Level-up your summer skincare routine

by Dr Rashel

Summer is the time of the year when we want to enjoy the warm weather, go to the beach, and spend time outside. However, this season also means that our skin is more exposed to harmful UV rays, sweat, and pollution. Therefore, it is crucial to take good care of our skin during summer. Today, we will talk about the top four summer essentials for skincare that you should have in your summer beauty routine.

  1. Sunscreen: Sunscreen is undoubtedly the most crucial summer essential for your skin. It protects the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun, which can cause skin damage, premature aging, and even skin cancer. It is essential to choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays with a high SPF of at least 30. Make sure to apply it generously on all exposed areas of your skin, including your face, neck, arms, and legs. Remember to reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or sweating. Try to use a sunscreen made with ingredients like clove, Vitamin C, and Aloe vera etc. Avoid sunscreen with harmful chemicals and preservatives.
  1. Detan scrub: Summer means spending time in the sun, and that also means that your skin may get tanned. A de-tan scrub helps to remove the tan and exfoliate dead skin cells, leaving your skin looking fresh and rejuvenated. Look for a de-tan scrub that contains natural ingredients and is gentle on the skin. Using a de-tan scrub once a week can help to keep your skin looking healthy and glowing all summer long.
  1. Sheet mask: Sheet masks are an excellent way to give your skin a boost of hydration and nourishment. During summer, the heat and sun exposure can make your skin dry and dull. A sheet mask with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, or green tea can help to soothe and hydrate your skin. Using a sheet mask once or twice a week can make a significant difference in how your skin looks and feels.
  1. Wet wipes: During summer, we tend to sweat more, and our skin can become oily and sticky. Carrying wet wipes with you can be a lifesaver to quickly freshen up and remove excess oil and dirt from your skin. Look for wipes that are gentle on your skin and free from harsh chemicals. You can also use them to remove your makeup, clean your hands, or wipe away any spills or stains.

 Make sure to choose products that are gentle and suitable for your skin type and incorporate them into your daily summer beauty routine. Enjoy the summer season!
