Start early and take care of your skin before the summer heat makes the transition to an entirely new skin care system difficult. Find out more
It’s getting really hot and there are literally numbered days until the summer days arrive. While we’re definitely excited to bring out the big guns and take out our summer dresses for a joyride, we’re also skeptical that the summer heat is putting a strain on our skin. This is literally the problem any time of year, and while temperature and weather changes will ultimately change our wardrobe, it will also change the way we look at skin care.
If you’re someone who doesn’t like turning things upside down when it comes to skin care, it’s time to rethink your regime. The products that worked for you in the winter will be of no use in the summer season. There are a few more steps you need to add to keep your skin hydrated and nourished in the summer heat. So while you’re sticking to your usual CTM routine, here are five home remedies to help nourish your skin throughout the season.
A face mist is clearly a must on hot days. Just as your body needs moisture, so does your skin. Make sure you have a spray bottle around you all day and spritz a generous amount every few hours. This will keep your skin looking soft and hydrated.
You can use a store-bought bottle of rose water straight out and give them a call for a day (if you’re lazy like us) or take the time and make your own organic rose water. To do this, you need to boil water and soak fresh and clean rose petals in it overnight. While straining the liquid in a spray bottle, you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to the mixture and you’re done!
Cooling face mask
One of the best ways to freshen up is to try face masks. They contain all the nourishing ingredients the skin needs. Depending on how your skin feels, you can change the recipe.
Here is a simple 2-ingredient recipe that is a fan favorite:
You will need two tablespoons of tomato paste and one tablespoon of honey. Apply this mixture on your face and leave it on for 10 minutes. If you are feeling very oily, you can even add a teaspoon of a gram of flour to remove the excess sebum.
If you’ve followed our beauty page religiously, you’ll know how much we swear by this extraordinarily simple tip. All you have to do is rub ice cubes on your face or dip your face in a bowl of ice water. The cold cubes definitely refresh everyone and work wonders for your skin too. It’s a popular way celebrities use it to glow on the red carpet before an event.
