Winter has passed and summer has finally arrived. It's the time of the year again when temperature escalates rapidly and the atmosphere gets humid. It's that time again when the heat of the Sun becomes uncomfortable and sticky, sweaty days become the norm. Naturally this change of season calls for a change in lifestyle. Along with your wardrobe, you need to change your skincare routine as well to suit the weather. The regimen you were following throughout the dry, cold months of winter is not anymore suitable for the humid and hot summer season. Your skin needs extra hydration and protection to tackle the various skin issues caused in summer such as rashes, itchy skin, tan, acne, sunburns etc. So here we are with some useful tips for an effective summer skincare routine so your skin remains healthy and supple the entire season.

  1. Use a Cleanser regularly: To clean the dirt, oil and grime deep rooted in your skin, use an effective cleanser regularly. We suggest  Rose & Geranium Antioxidant Facial Cleanser from Beauty Kitchen which is perfect for any kind of skin. Its strong antioxidant effects rivals that of Vitamin C and E which is very important for your skin especially in summer. Plus the soothing effect of aloe vera and Essential oils of rose and Geranium makes your skin more healthy looking.


  1. Carry a facial toner or mist with you everywhere: Proper hydration is a must for summer care of skin. To give your skin a perfect dose of hydration any time of the day, carry a facial mist or toner with you anywhere you go. We love this Cucumber Hydrosol Facial Toner from Beauty Kitchen. This spray has the goodness of soothing cucumber and pure fruit extract hydrosol which provides your skin with a really revitalizing, refreshing feeling. When your skin feels troubled because of scorching hot weather, calm it down with this relaxing toner jam packed with antibacterial properties in a jiffy.


  1. Moisturize your skin: Another important step of a carefully crafted skincare routine is moisturizing. Use a mild, non-greasy moisturizer to protect your skin in summer.

  1. Exfoliate the skin: Regular exfoliation of skin is extremely important in summer to get rid of the heavy accumulation of dirt, grime and oil from skin due to sweaty, sticky weather. Use a nice scrub for exfoliation at least 2 times a week. We recommend this Juicy Watermelon Sugar Scrub. This sugar scrub is filled with the goodness of the ultimate summer fruit, fresh and juicy watermelon. Gently scrub down your body with this effective summer refresher to get rid of all the dead cells and let the rice bran & essential oils maintain the moisture balance of the skin. Apply it after showering in a slow, circular motion to get the best results. It's suitable for all skin types.


  1. Use facial masks from time to time: Use facial masks from time to time to help rejuvenate your skin during the humid weather. We love this Chocolate Antioxidant Clay Mask which suits all skin types. This mask is filled with benefits of cocoa, clay and goat milk which gives you smooth, bright skin and a healthy glow. It's a soothing mask jam packed with rich antioxidant properties which will fortify your skin against damages caused by the Sun's UV rays and pollution. Natural clay's purifying nature, cocoa powder's toning effects and goat milk's soothing power totally make you feel revitalized. Mix it with Beauty Kitchen's Rosewater for the best results.



  1. Don't miss the sunscreen: Summer means tackling harsh sunlight all day long. It doesn't only cause tan, itchy skin or sunburns but also the harmful UV ray is one of the main reasons for many foul skin diseases such as cancer. So don't forget to put on a good amount of sunscreen lotion before going out in the daylight to protect your skin. Take a look at this Daily SPF 30 Sunscreen Moisturizer. It doesn't only protect the skin from harsh sunlight, but also prevents development of wrinkles, pigmentation and sagging skin. Apply it daily on your face, neck, hands or any other exposed part of your skin before going out so your skin doesn't get damaged. This sunscreen will give you dual benefits as it can be used as a daily moisturizer as well.


  1. Drink a lot of water: The most natural way to stay hydrated in summer is to drink a lot of water. If you are someone who forgets to drink water in a regular interval, then set reminders on your phone so you get reminded. It's even better if it's glucose water. Also drinking lemon water is a good idea as it can be a good source of Vitamin C which is vital for your skin in summer.

  1. Add seasonal fruits and veggies to your diet: Avoid eating greasy, oily food in summer as much as you can and instead add seasonal fruits and lots of green vegetables to your diet. Watermelon, grapes, lychees, berries, apples etc are water rich fruits which will help with the hydration of your body. And green vegetables with rich antioxidant properties will help you prevent damage to the skin caused by oxidants.

  1. Take frequent baths: In summertime, it's utmost important to take frequent baths. It's especially important after coming back home from a long day to clean and soothe yourself. We love this wonderful Lavender Take a Breather Bath Soak for an even more relaxing experience. Lavender's calming effect amplifies the bath's benefits. Aside from being pleasantly fragrant, this bath soak is a perfect blend which eases the itchy or troubled skin with its anti-inflammatory properties. 


  1. Take special care of Eyes and Lips: Take special care of the sensitive skin of lips and under eyes during summer. Keep your lips moist with a soothing lip balm. And use some effective under eyes patches to rejuvenate the skin there. Take a look at these Ice Water Collagen Under Eye Patches. These all natural eye masks have an ethereal cooling effect which feels very relaxing after a tiring day. It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles and infuses the skin with deep nourishment. Puffy eyes turn into perfect eyes in no time.
