Skincare tips for summer
The hot, sweaty and sweltering summer can damage the skin due to the excessive humidity and moisture in the air. In this weather, the body tends to sweat more which leads to clogged pores, acne and bumps, making skin look dull and greasy.
Skin conditions like acne, oily skin, redness and dullness become common in this season. Here’s how you can cope up with this weather and keep your skin looking fresh and healthy in the humid weather.
Cleanse and exfoliate
Choose the cleanser that suits your skin type to get the best results. Try to use ingredients like rose for combination skin type, papaya for dry skin and neem for oily skin type. The weather can worsen acne-prone skin, as it can cause more flare-ups. So, make sure you cleanse your face twice a day to get rid of all impurities. Along with cleansing, indulge in weekly exfoliation sessions, this will help to remove the top layer of dead skin cells, which makes skin look dull.
Acne care for oily skin
The hot temperature increases the sebum production as we sweat, which can lead to bumps and acne. For acne-prone and oily skin types, look for ingredients that help control acne. Ingredients like witch hazel, eucalyptus, salicylic acid and Aloe Vera can help control excess oil production and prevent acne.

Mask it up
The best way to detoxify your skin is to use a face mask weekly and purify your skin. As the hot weather can be a lot for the skin, the best way to deeply cleanse is with a peel-off mask. Try Planet Spa Peel-off Mask, which is infused with Korean Charcoal. The gentle formula draws out all dirt and impurities, leaving skin fresh and cleansed.
Keep it light
As skin tends to get greasy and sticky, it’s best to avoid heavy creams and make-up. If your skin easily gets oily, avoid thick creams and foundations. Instead, use lightweight BB or CC creams, which hydrate and offer medium coverage. Also, keep a refreshing face mist handy while stepping out. Look for refreshing ingredients like rose and lavender and spray it between to keep skin cool.
