We all know that stepping out in the sun without that protective shield of sunscreen, is a big no! But not carrying it all along with you is just as important a no! To make sure your skin is absolutely protected from the harmful UV rays of the sun, you should reapply it every 3-4 hours. Grab a broad spectrum SPF cream or lotion that suits your skin type. Ideally, pick one that is gel based and gets easily absorbed instead of those greasy ones that clog the skin pores.
The weather is going to make you sweat at a shocking rate, even if you have stepped outside for as short as five minutes. It isn’t possible to keep washing your face every now and then to freshen up. That’s where wet wipes will come to the rescue. Keep a hydrating and cleansing pack of wet wipes in your bag so that you can wipe your face off any extra oil.
Yes, you read that right! Even in summer, moisturizing your skin is extremely important. Moving in and out of air conditioned rooms, into the heat can cause your skin to become dry. But don’t make the mistake of going for cold creams. Instead, pick a lightweight moisturizing lotion that is oil-free.
The sun can affect your perfect pout too! Too much heat and humidity, coupled with the dust and pollution can chap your lips. Dab some SPF love on to them too with a hydrating lip balm every time they feel under-nourished. [Image: haircaresquare.com]
