Summer is here and while it is an incredibly fun time of the year, its also taxing on our skin. The soaring temperatures and hot winds of this season can result in skin damage, making it rough and dull. It is important to take care of our skin throughout the season.

Here are 10 home remedies for glowing skin in summer.

  • Water therapy – One of the most commonly spoken about remedies, but not as often followed, water therapy can be a highly effective procedure for getting a glowing skin this summer. Drinking plenty of water not only keeps your body hydrated, but also rids the body of toxins.
  • Cucumber and yogurt face pack – This combination makes for a highly useful face pack for glowing skin in summer. Mix half a cucumber and one tablespoon yogurt in a blender and apply the paste on your face. Leave the paste on for 15 minutes and then rinse off with water.
  • Rosewater – This is a simple but effective tip. Wash your face with rose water daily. The natural properties of rosewater make it act as a toner and make your skin glow.
  • Milk and banana – Another popular combination for the summer is banana and milk. Applying a paste made of a mixture of banana and milk for around 15-20 minutes will give result in glowing and soft skin. To boost this effect, moisturize with an appropriate lotion like the Olay Total EffectsL ighweight Anti-Ageing Cream for soft, supple skin.

Olay White Radiance Range | Review

 

Hi everyone! Today I’m going to share my review of the White Radiance range from Olay which is the brightening range from the brand. Olay is a very trusted name in skincare and I’m a big fan of their moisturizers and serums. Previously, I’ve reviewed their Total Effects range as well as their Regenerist range. While the previously reviewed ranges were aimed at ageing at different stages, the White Radiance range targets dark spots and uneven skin tone by boosting the metabolism of the skin cells. Apart from improving skin tone, it also helps in repairing the skin barrier which leads to better moisture retention by the skin. The result is radiant skin that looks healthy and has a natural, pearly glow. The range contains 5 products which I’ve been trying out since over 4 weeks now. Here are my thoughts –

Diet & Exercise

Diet : Three words – Fluids, Fibre and Fats! My skin is at its best when I drink 2.5-3 liters of water daily and make sure to include a fair amount of fruit and salad servings in my daily intake. Water and fibre together help in flushing out toxins from the body which reflects on the skin. And lastly, healthy sources of fat like nuts, olive oil, sunflower oil and seeds and avocados provide essential fatty acids which are required by the skin to maintain a healthy skin barrier and glow.

Exercise : This one is a no-brainer and we all know that regular exercise is the key to a healthy body and that includes the skin as well! Exercise boosts circulation, leads to better delivery of nutrients around the body and I’m sure you’ve noticed the healthy flush your skin acquires after a good workout session! So start including a brisk walk or a quick jog in your daily routine to get naturally, glowing skin.

Makeup Look : Brown and Peach

 

Hi everyone! Today I’m doing a quick breakdown of the look featured in some of my reviews lately. Many of you had questions about the products I used to create this warm brown and peach look, so I thought I’d do a blog post on it. I love doing all warm looks, they look really flattering and look great on a lot of skin tones! These kind of shades are quite common along a lot of brands as well so its not too difficult to recreate this even if you don’t have the exact same products that I’ve used here.

1. Never let the makeup stay on

It is very essential to always clean up your face before you hit the bed. Makeup contains chemicals that may clog up your pores and that could lead to breakouts. Always use a dedicated makeup remover or cleansing oil for removing makeup. For those long, tiring days when doing a whole routine may not be possible, keep some makeup remover wipes at your bedside table.

 

2. Befriend workouts that make you sweat

Sweat helps you release toxins through your skin. Workouts help you eliminate those toxins as well as add a healthy flush on your face. Do shower after workouts to wash away the sweat and grime from your skin though, or you’re back to square one.
