5 essential tips to keep your skin hydrated in summer 

The summer heat can dehydrate your skin, making it prone to dryness and itchiness. Here are five essential tips to keep your skin hydrated in summer. 

Drink plenty of fluids 

Staying hydrated is essential for boosting skin health. Drink plenty of fluids in summer to keep your skin naturally hydrated. 

Use a gel-based moisturiser 

Opt for gel-based moisturisers in summer. They are non-sticky and can be absorbed into the skin quickly, keeping it hydrated and moisturised. 


Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores, clearing blockages and allowing hydrating ingredients to penetrate the skin. It also helps stimulate cell renewal, leading to a brighter complexion. 

Avoid hot showers 

Hot water can strip the skin of natural oils and cause the skin to dry. Take showers with cold or lukewarm water to prevent dryness. 

Use a face mist

Facial mists are a great way to keep your skin refreshed and hydrated. It also helps reduce sebum production and keeps your skin cool.
