We change Beauty
awless skin. Changes in temperature and other weather conditions may call for adjustments in your skin care. Let’s check out some face care tips which we can adopt to fight against the harms caused to it because of climatic change. SUMMER CARE One of the most horrifying problems faced by our skin in summers is sun burn. To fight against this issue, one should always apply broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF formulation that will protect both UVA and UVB rays. Reapply once every 2 hours. “Too much of exposure to sun leads to pigmentation of the skin and as a result the tanning effect start taking place, so one should always go for SPF formulated sun screen lotions. Don’t forget your hair line or ears which are often neglected,” stated Naina Balsavar, the beauty expert.
Pigmentation is also caused due to over exposure of sunlight. Premature aging, wrinkles, sagging are some of the reasons which one should take extra care during summer. “Acne and blemishes are caused by various factors like hormornal imbalances, bacterial infections and pollutions and not really high humidity in fact clean moisture is good for the skin,” said stylist Clint Fernandes. Blossom Kochhar highlighted, “In India, we face two types of summers – hot and dry and hot and humid. During dry season, the skin tends to become dry as a result one should opt for cream based face cleansers. And the emergence of humid temperature results in open pores and oily skin resulting in rashes, boils and pimples.” Have at least 12 glasses of water a day to avoid dehydration and loss of moisture from the skin. “It keeps your skin hyderated and also helps in cleansing your bowels so as to be free from any kind of acne or boils which are caused due to such reasons,” Naina added. Eat lots of juicy fruits or have juices.
Avoid oily and fried food as much as possible. The best solution to get rid of all the skin problems is to keep the face clean. Always follow the three step process – cleaning, toning and moisturizing. Clint added, “One should wash the face regularly with a good ph balanced face wash and then use a toner after followed with an oil free moisturizer. Do this at least 3 times during the day also keep oil absorbing tissues handy.” And the skin healing procedure is definitely incomplete without exfoliation. WINTER CARE Winter season can be extremely stressful for our skin due to strong chilly winds and cold temperatures outside and drying-low humidity inside.
