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.

Spring-Summer Beauty Essentials

 

As spring slowly eases into summer, its time to update our beauty routines if you’ve not done that already! Its time to switch the lush oils and creams for lighter, non-greasy textures, ditch the vampy lip colors and smokey eyes for pop liners and cheery bright lip colors.

I’ve picked out my top 10 spring-summer beauty essentials below!

 

1. Face Cleanser | It’s very important to change up your skin care as the seasons change. Skin tends to get a little oily as the weather starts to warm up. This seasonal change can cause clogged pores and pimples. I absolutely love using Forest Essentials Mysore Sandalwood & Nagkesar Masque when my skin needs a deep, non-stripping cleanse. This also tightens and brightens skin slightly, drawing out unwanted impurities and excess oil. In fact, it’s one of my favorite picks and I recommend using this once or twice weekly.

 

2. Hydrating Face Cream | This is also the time to change your moisturizer, especially your night cream. While I love using facial oils in winter, I prefer something a little lighter in Spring-Summer, without compromising on hydration and anti-ageing benefits. The Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream is the perfect option for ladies in their late 20s-early 30s as it provides ample hydration in a gel-cream formula and addresses early ageing concerns as well!

 

3. Dry Shampoo | I think a dry shampoo is a must for sweaty Indian summers! It’s the time of year when scalps experience increased oiliness, leading to limp, greasy looking second day hair. A dry shampoo absorbs excess oil and adds lift and texture to the roots. The Batiste Dry shampoo in Blush has a lovely mild floral scent. Plus, it doesn’t leave white traces and the small travel size is perfect for carrying in one’s handbag!
