How to take care of skin in summers?

As the scorching heat is increasing with the rising temperatures, some special care is required to keep skin beautiful and glowing. The 90% of wrinkles are caused by sunrays as they penetrate the skin’s deepest layer and damage the elastin & collagen which keeps the skin firm. 
Below are some of the methods to project and rejuvenate your skin in summers:

Keep yourself hydrated:
As your body tends to lose a lot of moisture in the summer, so it’s important to regularly replenish it by drinking lots of fluids to keep the skin soft, fresh & moisturized.

Use of Sunscreen/ Sunblock

Use sunscreens whenever you go out in summers. It’s really important to save your skin from harmful UV rays and to have a flawless and non pigmented skin.

Skin Cleansing and exfoliating

The skin cleansing tips given below are suitable for all skin types:
a. Oats help to unclog pores and keep oily skin in check. Grind it and mix it with watermelon juice. Massage it gently all over your face and rinse it with regular water.
b. Adding Flaxseed oil or roasted flaxseed powder to the salads/vegetables /curd/buttermilk regulates the sebaceous glands and thus the oil production from them.
c. Keep some grinded rice in a bottle. Use a spoonful of rice with a few drops of tomato juice and use it to cleanse your skin.

Toning of skin

The easily available fruits of summers: Watermelon & coconut water, are both natural skin coolants and make excellent toners so make maximum use of them by eating, drinking and applying these on the skin.
Watermelon juice-   Make juice of watermelon after taking out the seeds and then mix it with rose water in 2:1 ratio.
Coconut water- Take coconut water, mix with some rose water & store it in a spray bottle in the fridge……use it within 2-3 days.

Cucumber Toner- Mix equal portions of cucumber juice and lemon juice and store it in refrigerator. Cucumber hydrates, soothes and balances out the effect that lemon can sometimes have on sensitive skin.

For A Healthy Glow

Papaya pack- Mix 2 teaspoon of mashed papaya with one tsp of honey and 1 egg white and apply it on your face and neck. Leave this mixture on your face for about 15 minutes and then wash with normal water.

Mango pack- A mango face mask can be prepared for soft and glowing skin by blending 2 table spoon over ripe mango pulp, two teaspoons of milk, 4-5 soaked almonds, and fullers earth (multani mitti). Keep this mask for 15-20 mins and then wash with cold water.

Strawberry pack- To get a glowing and radiating skin, strawberry: which is  full of anti oxidants (acts as an anti-aging and skin repair), is used as a beauty face pack.
Mash ½ cup strawberries with 1 tablesp of milk and 1 tablesp of rice flour/ cornstarch /all purpose flour(maida) and make a smooth pate of it. Spread this pack on face and neck and wash it after 20 mins.
