While the weather changes, your skin changes too. During Summer, an increase in humidity stimulates the sebaceous glands and produces more sweat leading to the formation of excess oil on the skin. This causes breakouts, acne and clogged pores on the skin’s layer. The harmful UV rays leave discoloration on your skin that turns out as pigmentation, dark spots and uneven skin tone. So, it is essential to change your products according to your new skin to keep it clear, smooth, glowing and healthy.
If your skin is facing any of these troubles and signs of ageing, then this summer skin care routine is just for you!
Summer Skin Care Routine
#1 Hydrate & Nourish
Your skin needs extra care during Summer. Water content in your skin is definitely going to show differences just like your body. By drinking more water and staying hydrated, you can naturally protect your skin from sun damage and skin conditions caused by the sun. Drink seasonal fruit juices and more water to hydrate and nourish your skin. This way, you can avoid skin dryness, dullness, signs of aging, irritation, peeling and sagging.
#2 Adapt A Gentle Cleanser
It is very important to cleanse your face during Summer because the sweat will produce excess oil and thus form acne and clogged pores. People with Oily skin would need a foaming cleanser. Whereas for dry skin, a gel-based cleanser would help. Always opt for gentle, noncomedogenic, pH balancing cleansers.
Try Leamleafs Anti-Acne & Pore Purifying Cleanser that contains Neem, Tulsi and Tea Tree as key ingredients to gently cleanse all dirt, grime and traces of makeup without stripping the natural oils from your skin. This cleanser is best for oily and acne-prone skin.
#3 Exfoliate: Repair The Skin Cells
In Summer, it becomes easy for clogged pores, breakouts and acne to form in your skin. It is vital to repair your skin cells at least twice or thrice a week. For that purpose, start with a steam (10-15 minutes recommended) followed by a gentle scrub with mild exfoliating agents. Over-exfoliation might strip out natural oils from your skin. So, monitor your exfoliation schedule and skin’s reaction for better results.
#4 Rejuvenate: Include Clay Mask To Your Routine
After an hectic day in the sun, your skin needs rejuvenation to restart another sunny day just like your body. A clay mask is the perfect ritual to rejuvenate your skin.
Leamleafs De-Tan Clay Mask contains many herbal and fruit extracts that act as a SUPERFOOD to remove the sun tan, pigmentation, sun spots, uneven skin tone and signs of aging. Post Sun Tan Removal, follow up with Leamleafs Glow Clay Mask to boost the inner glow and radiate instantly.
Just like exfoliation, rejuvenation should also take place at least twice or thrice a week for a clear and healthy skin.
#5 Refresh: Use An Hydrating Toner
Isn’t it odd when some nasty deposit is flushed out but its space is never polished? The same happens in the skin care routine too. Post repair and rejuvenation, it is vital to refresh your skin. Use an hydrating toner to serve this purpose. Leamleafs Miracle Blossom Floral Toner is a dual-purpose toner that does both toning and moisturizing with its natural hyaluronic acid. This toner is a magical potion of 5 flowers namely Rose, Jasmine, Chamomile, Geranium and Lavender to deliver instant refreshment and hydration to your dull skin.
#6 Look For A Multi-Purpose Moisturizer
Just like a dual-purpose toner, invest in a multi-purpose moisturizer to restore moisture, intensely hydrate, nourish and rejuvenate in a single go. Leamleafs Aloe Vera Gel is a multi-purpose moisturizer that also acts as a night gel that does magic overnight. Aloe Vera addresses almost all skin conditions irrespective of skin types. With regular usage of Leamleafs Aloe Vera Gel, you’ll say goodbye to acne, pigmentation, uneven skin tone, spots, scars, sun tan and dullness.
#7 SPF. SPF. SPF.
Here comes the most significant step of the summer skin care routine - The Sunscreen. Your skin is the largest organ of your body. A good sunscreen with atleast SPF 30 will help protect your skin from harmful UV rays and prevent severe skin conditions caused by the sun. It is also important to choose sunscreen wisely. Look for natural ingredients in the sunscreen to give a fruitful experience to your summer skin.
