Skincare Routine For Summers


Summers can envy your skin. The harsh sunlight, pollution, humidity can increase in activity of oil glands in your skin. It can simply make your already oily skin look more oily and dry skin look rough and dehydrated.

The harsh sunlight can increase the melanin content in your body and makes your skin darker and can also lead to sunburns and skin cancer.

The summer heat can also leads to open pores which invites clogging with dirt and pollutants and can cause acne, pimple and blemishe.

Face Wash is a must!

Facewash is first and the most basic step of any skincare routine that no one can afford to skip. Facewash not only clears the skin from dirt and pollutants but also remove excessive oil and close open pores and makes your skin clear and radiant.

A good facewash alone has the capability to refresh your skin. Wash your face at least twice a day to feel completely refreshed.


Completely rule out this assumption that your skin does not require moisturising in summers. The summer heat can easily dehydrate your skin and make you appear dull.

The only difference between moisturising in summer and winters is that your skin requires light-weight non-greasy moisture in summers instead of heavy winter moisturisers.


Exfoliate twice a week for brighter and smoother skin. It is a healthy habit to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Dead skin cells prevent your skin from breathing ultimately leads to dull and unwanted appearance.

Not just your face but your entire body requires exfoliation. Always remember to be gentle with exfoliation as over-exfoliation can be harsh to your skin and cause rashes.

Invest in good Antioxidants

Include antioxidant in your skincare routine as it will protect your skin from environmental damage and also hydrates your skin.

Creams and serums enriched with antioxidants reduce inflammation and prevent your skin from damage and also repairs your skin. You can check out this article for Best Face Creams for Indian Skin.

Eat more fruits and vegetables

Not only in skincare products but also include antioxidants in your diet. Citrus fruits, green vegetables, nuts, wholegrain are a good source of antioxidants.

Eat a lot of fruits and vegetable as a part of healthy eating that contains vitamins and other nutrients.

Never skip Sunscreen

One can never afford to skip sunscreen in summer. Apply sunscreen on exposed parts while stepping out in sunlight. Direct exposure to sunlight without SPF can permanently damage your skin and cause tanning, sunburns, premature wrinkles, dull skin, skin cancer and whatnot.

Do not just apply sunscreen only to your face but also to your neck, hands, feet and any other part exposed to sunlight.

Keep hydrated

Water is the key ingredient of any healthy habit. Always keep your body hydrated by drinking plenty of water as it flushes out toxins from your body.

Do not forget to carry water bottle everywhere you go. Drink at least 2-3 litres of water every-day for healthy and naturally radiant skin.

Ease up on Makeup

We are not saying you should completely avoid makeup in summers but all we are trying to say is that cut down on makeup a bit or use light-weighted makeup to allow your skin to breathe.

Hot and humid conditions prevent the skin from breathing openly. Go for minimal makeup during summers, you can use tinted moisturiser loaded with SPF and tinted lip balm and good organic kajal.

Utmost care of Eye area

The area surrounding the eyes is much sensitive and delicate than the rest of your face and require the utmost care. Use under eye gel enriched with hydraulic acid, cucumber or cucumber to massage down the eye area and relax eye muscles.

Wear sunglasses while going out in summers as it will prevent wrinkle formation around the eyes. Don’t forget to keep your eyes hydrated for a freshened-up look.

Cold showers

Don’t forget to take a regular shower with cold water during summers as it will completely refresh your body. Avoid hot water shower during summers as it will dehydrate your skin and leads to clogging of pores and cause acne and pimples.

Skin toner

Invest in a good toner as it will make your skin clean and refreshed and also close open pores. It also controls the secretion of excessive oil on the face.

Pay special attention to the T-zone area as it is the place of maximum secretion of oil. Use refreshing toner enriched with aloe vera and cucumber to freshen up your skin.

Take care of entire body

Don’t restrict your focus to the only face because your entire body requires care during summers. Exfoliate your body, apply moisturizer and sunscreen. Do not forget to take care of your hands and feet equally.

Exercise regularly as it will increase blood flow in your body and helps in repairing dead tissues. Apart from exercising, do not forget to take an ample amount of rest required for your body. Take proper sleep not less than 6 hours to keep your body healthy along with your skin.
