Summer has arrived and its time to have fun in the sun. But not at the cost of your skin health! While you have fun outdoors, your skin demands more attention and additional care and protection. Here are some special ways to pamper the skin and keep it glowing like the summer sun.
1. Wear sunscreen everyday
Pick a sunscreen with a PA+++ and an SPF of 30 or higher. A calamine based, tinted sunscreen is a great option to keep your skin cool this summer. Avoid harsh sun exposure between 11am and 4pm.
2. Cover up in style
Summer is a time for cool colorful cottons! Invest in some vibrant scarves and learn to wrap them differently each day to save your skin and make a cool style statement. Add a pair of shades and carry an umbrella for added protection. Cool cotton kurtis with long sleeves or floor sweeping skirts and dhoti pants are also a fashioniesta's summer skin savers!
3. Brightening cream at night
An evening or nightly application of a brightening cream containing ingredients like Arbutin, Vitamin C, Grape extracts, Lactic acid will help in neutralizing some of the summer tan on a daily basis and calm down the melanocyte activity.
4. Lemon and honey face wash
Give your regular face wash a ditch in summer evenings and switch to freshly squeezed lemon juice mixed with honey as a cleanser. Lemon is a great source of vitamin C and citric acid that naturally exfoliates and brightens the skin. While honey is a natural cleanser and moisturizer.
5. Tomato juice mask
Cut a ripe juicy tomato in half and give a rub on all exposed areas once a day. Leave it on the skin for 20 minutes and rinse with cool tap water. This mask is great to prevent summer tanning if followed on a daily basis.
6. Arbutin and lactic peels
If you need serious help or prefer a more scientific and professional approach to your summer skin care, head to your favorite Cosmetic Skin Specialist. Peel treatments such as Lactic, Arbutin, Koijic can be done once in 2 weeks to ensure bright skin all summer.
7. Tank up on Green tea
Green tea is one of the richest sources of antioxidants. Which translates to internal protection from UV rays, glowing skin and of course anti aging. Pick your favorite flavor and have 3 cups a day with a teaspoon of honey. This works as a wonderful metabolism booster, so a more energetic and slimmer you too!
8. Colourful salads and citrus fruits
These provide you mainly with antioxidants, vitamin C, fibre and water. All essentials for flawless skin, healthy body and strong immune system. Make these your best friends this summer and stay beautiful forever.

Keep looking beautiful
