5 Things Your Skincare Routine Requires to Beat the Heat

Bright sunny days can be so much fun. It's the time to dive into the pool, wear vibrant clothes, and enjoy various outdoor activities. However, summer can also mean humidity, pollution, and the sun's scorching rays. All of these can impact your skin and damage it. 

However, this doesn't mean you won't leave your home during summer. A better idea is to follow a proper summer skincare routine to beat the heat and keep your skin looking its best.

You must do these five things to protect your skin from sun damage.

#1: Wash Dirt and Dust Away, Twice a Day

The face wash is the first and formost step in a summer skincare routine. During summer, pollution, humidity, sweat, dirt, impurities, and other factors can make your skin appear dull and lifeless.

Cleaning your face twice a day with the best face wash to brighten skin can help you to regain and retain your glow. The Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Advanced Pink Glow Brightening Face Wash would be an ideal choice. This face cleanser comes with the goodness of Bulgarian Rose and Saxifraga Extracts, is suitable for all skin types, and has anti-pollution properties. The Bulgarian Rose reduces pores and fine lines and soothes the skin. Saxifraga Extracts reduce dark spots and fade discolorations. Regular use of this facewash can help lower dullness while giving your skin a luminous glow. Use it in the morning and night to remove dirt, grime, and excessive oil and keep your skin looking fresh.   

#2: Rejuvenate Your Skin With a Face Serum

Serums are easily absorbed due to their lower viscosity and are lighter than moisturisers. Thus they provide a very effective first layer of moisturisation and protection. Applying a face brightening serum also nourishes your skin and reduces its dullness. Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Skin Brightening Serum+ Moisturiser is a unique blend that minimises dark spots and pigmentation. This serum tightens pores and refines skin texture to give a sheer glow. It also offers the benefit of a skin moisturiser. Applying this serum twice daily can help to keep your skin looking hydrated, supple, and healthy.   

Use a few drops of this serum after cleansing your face with facewash and incorporate it into your skin with a light massage. Due to its light and fast-absorbing formulation, this serum quickly sinks into the skin and does not make it feel or look greasy.

#3: Apply a Skin Lightening Cream to Remain Tan-Free

Sunburn and tan are the most common summer problems that can darken your complexion and steal its natural glow. You can protect your skin against the sun's harmful rays by applying an effective skin-lightening cream like Lotus Herbals WHITEGLOW Skin Brightening Gel Cream SPF 25 PA+++. It has an innovative gel-based cream formulation that facilitates fast absorption, moisturises, and imparts your skin a natural glow. This cream is enriched with saxifrage, mulberry, and grape extracts that work to make the skin look brighter and fresher. The milk enzymes in this formulation lighten skin tone by acting as fairness agents. These enzymes help to improve your skin texture while bringing about a visible difference in your skin tone. Regular application of this cream with SPF 25 and PA+++ can protect your skin against the harmful effects of the UVA and UVB rays of the sun.

You can include this cream in your daily skincare routine. After cleaning your face and nourishing it with a face serum, apply a generous amount of this skin-lightening cream. Use your fingers to gently rub the cream into your skin.

#4: Nourish and Brighten Your Skin With a Night Cream

The night is the time when your skin cells repair and regenerate. Your summer skincare routine must include an intensive night cream that can accelerate this process.

You can provide your skin with the night care it deserves with Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Skin Brightening & Nourishing Night Cream. This night glow cream is a luxurious advanced formulation created to enhance your skin's radiance naturally. The grape extract enables active ingredients to penetrate deep into your skin and reduce dark spots, blemishes, pigmentation, and uneven skin tone. The milk enzymes help to brighten your skin by blocking melanin production. Mulberry and saxifrage extracts nourish your skin and provide a natural radiance. This cream has a light, non-greasy texture that gets absorbed quickly, leaving your skin soft and supple. 

Use a small amount of this night glow cream after washing it and applying a face serum before bed. Massage the cream on your face and neck until completely absorbed. 

#5: Use Sunscreen at All Times

Summer is perfect for spending time outdoors, going sightseeing, and enjoying the warm weather. Sun rays can damage your skin, causing skin tan, wrinkles, sun spots, and cancer. That's why it's imperative to use sunscreen, whether you're stepping out or not. Try Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen MatteGEL Sunscreen SPF 50 PA+++. Comfrey, Horse Chestnut, and Vanilla extract naturally protect the skin from free radical damage. SPF 50 optimally protects the skin and provides broad-spectrum protection. 

One should use sunscreen after using moisturiser. Remember to reapply it every two hours, especially if you're sweating or swimming. In addition, consider wearing a hat or sunglasses when spending extended time in the sun. Following this simple tip can help to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the summertime sun.
