Water keeps our muscles flexible to extract energy which eventually makes us energetic. Other than that, the more water you intake, the more you sweat it out. This will help you take out all your body toxins and give you a clear, hydrated skin.
If you think your leftover winter moisturiser can be used now, you are wrong. The climate right now is warm and humid. So, you should always go with lightweight moisturisers made specifically for summers. This would help your skin pores breathe and stay away from breakouts.
To keep your skin hydrated during summers, you should use toners that help to tighten our pores and give clear skin. That is why, every time after washing your face with a mild face wash, you should use facial toners especially when you are home.
Be it a solid fruit or juice, summers are all about fruits. From drinking a lot of fruit juice to applying them on your skin as face packs, you can totally rely on fruits like watermelon, banana, grapes, pomegranate etc. They not only provide you hydration, but also gives you vital nutrients like vitamin A, C, B, antioxidants and minerals.
When it comes to our face, during summer many of us feel uncomfortable to use a moisturiser. In that case, rely on a natural gel like aloe vera. Using aloe vera gel on our skin can give a soothing effect. You can either use it as a moisturiser or a face pack by adding some honey and coconut oil along with it.
