Skin Care: The heat in the summers will be more and it shows its impact on our skin. To beat the heats of the summers, you need to follow few steps. A good CTM (Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer) routine is very much important in any season for the perfect skin.
Cleanser: Always use a mild cleanser. Never use the same products in both the winter and summer. The cleanser should be very mild and gentle. And also buy the one which is suitable for your skin type.
Toner: Use a good toner which will reduce the size of the pores and helps your makeup to stay in place. Or just take a couple of ice cubes in a clean cloth and gently rub all over your face. This also does the job of the toner.
Moisturizer: Make sure your moisturizer is very light. Otherwise, it will make your skin very oily. Stay away from the one which you used in winter.
Sunscreen: This is very much important in summers. Even though we use sunscreen in winter, it is very important to use sunscreen with high SPF for the summers. For Indian summers, sunscreens with SPF 50 are the best. Never ever avoid this step from your skin care routine.
Lip Balm: Always carry a lip balm with you. The heats will make your lips dry very quickly. So try to reapply the lip balm whenever needed. Buy a lip balm with SPF to protect your lips.
Makeup Products: Make sure you are applying everything waterproof for the summers. As the heat will be high, we sweat a lot. This will fade away our makeup. To avoid this, always use waterproof products, even for your eye makeup also.
Clothing: Not only skin care but also clothing needs special care in summers. We cannot wear the winter clothes in summers, especially hoodies, sweatshirts and sweaters. Make sure of the fabric you are wearing. The fabric must absorb the sweat produced by our body. Otherwise, it will lead to skin problems. Cotton is the best fabric for summer. Whether you want to be traditional or modern, cotton is the best option. Let’s see some of the trends which we can totally rock in summers:
All Whites: White gives you an angelic feel and also all whites are in summer trends for many years now.
Off/Cold Shoulder: This is quite in trend these days and this continues even in summers also. The tops/dresses with the cold shoulder pattern will bring out the chic in you.
Florals: Girls and flowers are like synonyms. So floral designs will never go out of fashion.
Handlooms: Fashion lovers are raving about handlooms these days and this will be a better option to add bright colors to your summer outfits.
Keeping fashion and trends aside, comfort is very much important in summers. Otherwise, you will suffocate even in normal outfits.
A few Points to remember in the summers:
- Always wear light makeup
- Make sure you are wearing right size innerwear in cotton fabric.
- Try to avoid wearing uncomfortable footwear.
- Opt for minimal jewelry.
- Keep a spray bottle with rose water in your bag and spray it on your face whenever your skin feels a burning or hot. This will helps you in cooling down and also makes you feel fresh.
- While going out, always use a cap or a scarf to cover your head. Using a tie-dye stole which is in trend will add color to your outfit.
- To protect your eyes from the heat, always wear goggles.
- Last but very important, drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated.
