TeleLIFE cues you into packs and scrubs that will protect your skin and hair this summer.
Humidity accompanies the intense summer heat; this makes the skin and hair sticky. Humidity mixed with pollution can be very harmful for our skin and hair.
So, here’s what you can do to keep your face fresh and hair glowing during the summer season:
CLEANSE: Keep your skin clean. Too much of cleansing, however, can cause excess production of sebum and thus increase the oiliness and acne associated with it. Try a gel-based face wash that does not affect the natural moisture of your face.
TONE: It is necessary to tone your facial skin to maintain its natural ph balance. Use a good anti-bacterial toner as it’s easy for air and waterborne bacteria to attack your skin during the humid summer months. Do this before bedtime.
EXFOLIATE: Excessive humidity leads to extra oiliness. It is important to remove the oiliness in order to prevent breakouts.
MOISTURISE: The skin gets dehydrated due to the constant humidity.
Here are a few face packs for the season:
1. Whisk one egg white. Mix it with three tbsp of oatmeal powder, and a spoon each of honey and curd to get a smooth paste. Apply the mask and leave it on for 30 minutes.
2. Mash half a ripe banana. Grind a handful of mint leaves. Mix well. Apply it on the face and leave on for 30 minutes.
3. Add two tbsp of rice to a few cups of hot water. After 10 minutes, strain and grind the rice to form a paste. Add one tbsp curd. Apply this paste and leave on for 20-30 minutes.
