Skin care in summer

Author: Alex Rador
Summers are here again with skin ailments like tanning, dehydration, pimples and blemishes. This season demands special skin care. Be ready to fight the heat by following a few skin care tips so that you will look as beautiful as you were and your skin will be soft as well as nourished. Firstly, keep your skin hydrated by using honey, milk cream and yoghurt. Apply this daily for twenty minutes and then use the scrub made of flour. You can also use scented lotions if you wish to. Do it just after the shower so that your skin absorbs the moisture.
Secondly, you should cleanse your skin by using cold raw milk. After that use rose water as toner. You can apply this before going to bed for proper skin care. Tanning is the most common skin problem. The best way to lessen tanning is to apply tomatoes and honey. This will work as natural bleach for your skin. All this will take hardly a few minutes of yours before going to bed and you can have your skin care routine. There are some more home made recipes for skin care. For making bleach, take four tsp milk and two tsp lemon juice. Mix and apply on the skin for about fifteen to twenty minutes. Wash it with cold water. For making cleanser, take yoghurt, honey and lemon juice. Mix and massage for three minutes. Wash with cold water. It is very important to exfoliate your body as our skin cells are damaged every single minute which results in blocking of pores with dull, rough and wrinkled skin.
For glowing skin, you have to exfoliate at least two to three times a week. For making exfoliating scrub, take oatmeal and baking soda in equal quantities. Make a paste by using water. Rub it in circular motions all over the body and wash thoroughly. You can also take gram flour, lemon juice, mint leaves, curd and grated carrot. Mix it well and make a paste. Apply in circular motions to clean the dirt. If your skin is looking dull, don’t worry. Here is the remedy. Take pulp of pineapple and papaya, grape seed oil and turmeric. Mix and apply for twenty minutes. Rinse with cold water. You will find your skin fresh and soft along with a cooling effect like never before. Do not leave your feet. Use a foot scrub to remove the dead skin so that your feet will look nice in sandals.
File your nails and apply a bright nail polish on toe nails as compared to finger nails. Do not forget to use sunscreen whenever you go out. Apply it again after every two hours to ensure happy safe sun.
