Some summer skin care tricks that will keep your skin hydrated all through the summer while you enjoy treating yourself with an ice-cream!
Make H20 Your Best Friend
Ditch that bottle of beer or soft drink and replace it with a glass of plain water. Trust us, it will make your skin super happy! Make sure to drink enough water every day (8 glasses approx), so that your body remains hydrated from within and can flush out all the toxins. This, in turn, will keep your skin healthy, happy and glowing.
Add Some Summer Fruit Punch
Summer fruit are a rich source of anti-oxidants, vitamins, and other nutrients which are the principal resources in keeping your skin hydrated and glowing. Add some berries or other citrus fruits in your daily diet to hydrate your skin from within thereby making you look younger. Plus, these fruits are delicious...your tongue will love them too (bonus)!
Increase Your Love for Exfoliation
Scorching heat and hot winds outside can dehydrate our skin, making it look dull and lifeless. Exfoliation is the answer to this problem. Exfoliating removes the dead skin cells and clear your pores, thereby keeping your skin hydrated. Make sure to use a mild exfoliating scrub twice or thrice a week for that much-needed glow.
An easy home made scrub is nothing more than a cup of brown sugar mixed with coconut oil. Use it in the shower and focus on problem areas like heels, elbows and knees. The sugar scrubs off dry skin cells and the coconut oil keeps your skin smelling and feeling absolutely wonderful!
Dial M for Moisturizer
Yes, even if you have oily skin or combination skin you need to add a dollop of moisturizer to your skin. It is an essential skincare step which you should never think of skipping. Moisturisers keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. Be smart and choose moisturisers based on your skin type. That's it, you're sorted!

DIY...Your Skin's Weekend Treat!

Well, we know sunscreens are vital as they act as a protective shield on our skin. Maybe they do not hydrate your skin in the true sense, but they do protect your skin from extra damage. So, do not skip sunscreen during the summer, they are truly your skin's best friend.
