Derm Approved Solutions For Summer Skincare
When it comes to summer skincare, we cannot emphasize enough on wearing sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays and minimize sun damage! Since our bodies and skin are transitioning from season to season, we bring you some tips for summer skincare and the answer to the most asked question of all times, “Do I still have to use moisturizer if I have oily skin and sweat a lot?” Yes. Yes and a hundred times YES! Your oily skin does not compensate for the moisturizer.
Tips for Summer Skincare:
1. Use lightweight skincare products.
Be it a cleanser, a serum or a moisturizer, switch to products that feel light on your face. A lightweight foaming cleanser instead of an oil-based cleanser can be more beneficial in summers. VW Recommends using the Beplain Greenful pH-Balanced Cleansing Foam
Using a light plus watery moisturizer, or a gel-based moisturizer would prove to be calming, soothing and hydrating at the same time. Or better, use a moisturizer that can double up as sunscreen that has SPF more than 15 in it! VW Recommends Votre Day Gel Moisturizing Gel SPF 25
2. SPF! SPF! SPF!
We have already emphasized, dermatologists cannot emphasize enough on wearing sunscreen all day everyday whether you are indoors or outdoors, irrespective of the weather. Wear sunscreen with SPF 30 and above. SPF 50 is an ideal recommendation for summers. VW Recommends the Minimalist Multi Vitamin SPF 50 PA ++++ Sunscreen
3. Vitamin C
Invest in a good Vitamin C serum, as it becomes all the more important in summers! It protects your skin from sun damage, prevents dark spots, fine lines and signs of ageing. VW recommends the Fixderma C-Enhance-25 Serum.
4. Refreshing Body Showers
To keep the body free of germs and bacteria and to smell as fresh as a lime all time, VW recommends the Myoho Pure By Priyanka Lemon & Apricot Soap, which has lemongrass oil among other refreshing ingredients that make your shower rituals reinvigorated at all times.
5. Non Comedogenic and Waterproof Makeup
It is important that you wear makeup during summer which does not occlude your skin and causes clogging of your pores. Make sure the base you apply has the label “Non-comedogenic” so as to prevent your skin from getting irritated.
