12 Simple Steps To Stay Healthy This Summer

1. Don’t Forget sunscreen

A generous coat is a must before you leave and don’t forget to reapply periodically. It would be even smarter to get a water resistant product with a higher SPF quotient, preferably close to 50.

2. Skin Cleansing

Excessive oil with sweating makes for a greasy look. In such cases, an alcohol free mild cleanser helps a great deal. It cleans up all the oil and dirt clogging the pores.

3. Exfoliation

What’s the point of cleansing if you are going to leave the dead skin in place? Exfoliate to make sure that this dead skin couple with germs and oil doesn’t lead to skin troubles. You can choose been the scrubs that are easily available in the market or opt for DIY scrubs. Try this homemade scrub by mixing 4-5 tbsp. of besan with a pinch of turmeric and 5-6 drops of rose water and milk or curd. Rub your skin thoroughly with this mixture and wash with lots of cold water.

4. Tone Your Skin

Leaving your pores open is like leaving your home open after sending out an invitation to a burglar! Open pores are a resting place for all kinds of germs and bacteria. Use rose water or a cucumber based skin toner available in the market. If you have oily skin, use an astringent.

5. Moisturize

Skin care can never be complete without the use of a moisturiser. If you have oily skin that tends to sweat a lot with the use of moisturizers , then opt for water based moisturizers .Moisturizers actually maintain the pH balance of your skin keeping it hydrated from outside.

6. Keep your skin cool

A face pack made with crushed cucumber and a tbsp of yogurt has a much needed cooling effect on your skin. Place two cucumber slices over your eyes that acts as cooling eye pads. You have the luxury of a spa at home now.

7. Foot care

Sweaty feet lead to rashes and fungal infections so opt more for sandals. A simple home remedy is to also soak your feet in warm water with a pinch of salt. That will keep it fresh and free from dirt.

8. Hair Care Tips For Summer

Always wear a scarf or wide-brimmed hat if you have to stay out in the sun for long. Take a break and spare your hair of all sorts of heat treatments and blow drying. Do not rinse your hair in hot water. Always use cold water. Hot water may further dry out your scalp and hair. Consider changing your shampoo this summer. Get a moisturizing shampoo.

9. Keep Yourself Hydrated

We tend to perspire a lot in summer and in the process we may lose a lot of fluid content. The mantra is to yourself hydrated as long as you stay awake. Drink lots of water. Alternatively squeeze out a few drops of lime into your water for a refreshing change. Opt for coconut water for a nutritious thirst quencher.

10. Summer Fruits:

Summers are the time for some exotic fruits. Choose fruits that are high in water content to keep you hydrated. We mainly depend on water melons for their high water content but we can also try out litchi, apple, mangoes, berries, grapes and bananas. These fruits are all high in vitamins and are cooling. You can eat them whole or make them into smoothies and shakes. Add cucumbers to your diet, they are cooling and refreshing .They aid in digestion and reduce body heat.

11. Water based vegetables:

You need to keep the water content in your body intact during summers. Aim to include water based vegetables in your diet. Stock your fridge with lots of carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, lettuce, pumpkins and cabbage. They provide a lot of nutrition; they also keep you hydrated from within by regulating your body temperature.

12. Non vegetarian foods:

If you are a lover of non-veg and can’t finish your meal without having one serving of it, cut down on the frequency of chicken and red meat; instead have fish. Fish is not only cooling compared to meat, but is also rich in omega-3 fats.
