Your friends call you up for a day out and cowardly you say no. Come summers and women get conscious about skin due to the scorching heat. After all who wants to look dark and who needs unwanted tan?
These worries keep us occupied most of the time. So, why worry and have wrinkle when you can smile and have dimples. We are here to keep you updated on skin care during the summer.
The first thing that all skin specialists and make-up artists suggest is that one should drink lots of water.
Water works as a primary beauty aid. As our skin dehydrates, it needs moisturisation in summers. Also hot winds and ultra violet rays make our skin dry and blemished.
"Water really works wonders for your skin. One needs to follow a healthy regime especially in summers. Splash water on your face as it keeps dirt away. Steam face regularly to release dirt. Pat dry with tissue and moisturise. Moisturisers seal in the water and helps skin to hold the moisture better," says make up specialist Meher Kolah.
Elaborating on the skin care she says, "We heavily lose water from our body in the form of sweat in summers. One needs to fulfill the required amount of water. And water works better when you eat right. One should normally avoid oily food and eat lots of salads and fruits so that toxins are flushed out and body system remains clean."
