6 Easy Ways to Hydrate Your Skin in Summer

Summer wreaks havoc on your body, especially the skin. Skincare specialists often preach about how important it is to take care of your skin as the mercury rises. But, have you paid attention to them? Well if you haven’t, you sure would have dealt with a series of skin problems that come soon after the summer season is over. Dry skin, peeling, patches, itching & irritation and what not, all the skin conditions that you have been suffering from might be because of water loss during the hotter months. While you thought applying sunscreen is your best way to protect your skin from the sun, it is actually just a fragment of the entire regime. So, if you are serious about skin care and want to preserve the glow, here are a few easy ways to keep your skin healthy and hydrated this summer.


Take lukewarm showers:

Lukewarm water is helpful in opening up the skin pores that are likely to get clogged due to increased production of sebum during summer. Taking luke warm showers is therefore helpful in getting rid of excess oil from the skin and preparing the skin to take up nourishment. Try practicing this simple tip to ensure healthy and lustrous skin during the harsh summer months.

Use humidifiers:

Environment plays a key role in our overall skin health. During summer, when the air in our house gets heated up it tends to lose moisture, leaving us in a dry, corrosive surrounding. Humidifiers help restore the moisture balance of the air at home which in turn helps you’re your skin hydrated.

Increase fluid intake:

Summer leaves your body bereft of hydration. The water loss is triple the amount it is in any other season. So, it becomes imperative for you to replenish the lost moisture. The best way to combat dehydration is to drink ample amount of water, at least 10-12 glasses a day combined with seasonal fruits and other liquid drinks. This will help you hydrate the skin naturally. Additionally, maintain a skin care routine for moisture preservation which must include- cleansing, toning and moisturizing at least twice a day.

Go easy on makeup:

Makeup might be an important part of your skin care routine but during the summer season, it is better to keep it low. Even if you do, you must ensure to take it off before taking to bed. Blocked pores are your biggest enemy during summer and often trigger skin breakouts.

Pick up natural ways to enrich your skin:

There are various natural products that are very friendly for your skin in summer. For example, tomatoes are great for your skin. They are soft, moisturizing and moreover, they are a great source of anti-oxidants. All you need to do is apply tomato pulp on your face and let it sit for 10 minutes or so. Wash it off, and you’ll left with fresh and hydrated skin.

Befriend ice:

The skin radiates the body’s heat which is high during hotter months of the year. This causes the skin to look patchy, reddish and scorched. To avoid those extra red blushes, you must put ice on your face. Make an ice pack or take an ice cube and rub it on your skin. You will get instant relief from the heat and also replenish the loss of water.

These are some of the best tips to keep your skin hydrated during summer. Try them and maintain your glow. In case you experience serious irritation, dryness or any other skin problem, it is always better to consult with an expert and seek professional advice.
