The summer has left most of us (read all who haven’t been in an honest relationship with their sunscreen) tanned & dark. This year it is not only the temperature that has soared to 40 degrees, a comparatively lesser humidity has worked together with the temperature to literally burn the skin. So, now, when we are finally expecting the summer to make way for monsoon in a week, it is time to say “bye bye” to that summer tan as well.
Here are some tricks to stay bright even in this scorching summer,
- Do not forget to lather on sunscreen even if you are staying indoors.
- Use sunscreen every time you attend the kitchen or go out, even on seemingly cloudy days.
- Use umbrella while going out during the day, even if the sun seems to be hidden behind clouds.
- Wear skin covering cotton or linen clothes, this can be exceptionally helpful to save your skin from the heat burn.
- Choose your sunscreen with care. It must be a heat proof & sweat resistant formula.
- Avoid staying under direct sunlight for long
- Store your skin toner in the fridge & use the chilled toner directly on your face after you have got back home (obviously after cleansing your face). This will control any burning sensation on the skin that might be triggered by the excess heat.
- Moisturizing your skin properly during summer is vital as the summer heat & continuous sweating dries out the skin.
- If you tend to get dark during summer, using a skin brightening treatment like the Tetra Range or the Fair and Bright Day & Night Cream is a good option.
- Use an at home de-tanning treatment once or twice a week.
