When we hear the word summer we get frightened of it, considering the hot sun and its impact on our skin. When we go out under the sun we soon get tired due to dehydration. It makes our skin dry, wrinkles, marks, and rashes. We need to overcome all these and make ourselves active. Here are some tips to be followed to keep our skin healthy during summer.
Be aware on the impact of Sun to our skin:
Sun exposure is not completely bad and unhealthy. We get Vitamin D from it. But too much of exposure will spoil our skin. The maximum time you can spend under the sun to gain vitamin is about 15 minutes. The time can be before 10 A.M. and after 2 P.M. Over exposure of skin to sun leads to difficulties.
Using sunscreen lotions:
Nowadays we get many sun screen lotions. We need to carefully check the chemical added to it before we start using them. Many lotions may cause damages to the skin. First we have to notice the SPF (Sun Protection Factor) before applying them. SPF means they allow withstanding the skin for some more time that before. It is better to use the lotion which has SPF 15. If you have oily skin don’t use lotion having SPF greater than 20 and buy lotion which has oil free.
Wear proper clothing:
Clothes which we wear during summer should be cotton cloths which help us to be cool. It absorbs the sweat from our body and makes us to feel good. We can wear sunglasses to protect our sensitive eyes. We can also close our face with small cloth so that it does not get exposure to sun.
Give skin a break:
During this season it is good to get rid-off applying make-up. Wash your face often to make you feel cool. Avoid applying powders or any chemical based creams which can close your skin pores and make you feel itching.
Shower after swimming:
Always have shower before and after swimming which makes your skin to be good. Chlorinated water in the swimming pool may make your skin feel dry. It may also cause rashes in the skin. It is good to have showers twice a day during summer.
Avoid using perfumes directly on the skin:
It is better to avoid using perfumes directly on the skin which may affect the skin when it gets exposed with the sun. So during summer it is better to use some fragrance liquid on the clothes instead of spraying perfumes on the body.
Drink plenty of water and eat healthy food:
Due to heat our body may get dehydrated and feel tired. To overcome this we need to drink plenty of water than the normal time. Eat healthy foods during summer to be fit. It is good to add watery vegetables and curd regularly in your food.
