Skin Care in Summers
Your skin requires more
attention in Summers when due to sweating it is always sticky, requiring
frequent washing. Due to exposure to the sun and hot winds the skin
becomes carped and complexion becomes sallow. Moreover, the pores get
clogged due to perspiration and the skin can't breathe.
If you have a greasy
skin, steaming once a week is advisable, if you have a dry skin steam it
once a fortnight. For steaming a special electrical gadget is used.
But if you are trying it at home, the procedure to follow is simple -
Boil water in a pot and place your face on it so that the rising steam
comes on your face. Spread a towel on your head to save the steam from
escaping and going waste. 4 to 5 minutes of steaming is sufficient.
After this, sprinkle your face with ice cold water so as to close the
open pores. Regular steaming keeps the skin glowing.
Some hints to follow
to protect your skin during summer.
- Use soap at least once
- Clean your face and
neck with a good cleansing milk
- Use a good astringent
for oily skins
- After cleansing your
face, take a piece of ice and massage your face slowly with it
- Wash your face with
cold water at least thrice a day
- A light massage, with
cream, on facial skin before going to bed is useful, but the
quantity of cream required is to be less because in summers you
don't need much grease
- Protect yourself from
hot winds of the heat wave by applying on your face lime water mixed
with asli oil in equal quantity. Keep it for fifteen minutes.
Beware, that it does not go into your eyes.
