Summer is officially here, as evidenced by the oppressive heat and soaring temperatures. And while the summers cause a lot of dehydration in the body, did you know that your skin can also become dehydrated? Your skin may be dehydrated if it appears dry, flaky, itchy, or red. While we can drink plenty of water, juices, and other beverages to replenish our bodies, this does not always work for our skin. That requires more than eight glasses of water. Summer is not everyone’s favorite season; after all, it wreaks havoc on our skincare routine.
As the weather changes, it also affects our skin texture and appearance. Because of the sun’s harsh rays, it becomes even more difficult to keep the skin soft, protected, and glowing during the hotter months. Then there’s pollution and dirt to complicate matters. While we may be unable to perform every beauty ritual required to protect our skin, one important thing to keep in mind is to keep it hydrated. This can be accomplished not only through a healthy lifestyle but also through a basic beauty regimen.
Thaicare has dominated the skincare industry for many years and thus knows the trick to keeping your skin hydrated this summer. Here are some beauty rituals to incorporate into your summer beauty routine to keep your skin healthy and glowing.
Cleanse and exfoliate
To remove dirt and grime from deep within the pores, cleanse your face twice a day and scrub your skin two to three times per week. This is critical because your skin will not benefit from the moisturizing lotions and face masks you try to use.
Moisturize your skin
Another summer skin care tip is to moisturize your skin. During the summer, most people avoid moisturizing their skin because it makes them feel greasy. However, if you do not use a moisturizer in hot weather, the moisture in your skin will easily evaporate due to air conditioning or dry weather, leaving it dry, itchy, and causing fine lines. During the summer, the oil glands, or sebum, become more active and secrete excessive oil, allowing pimple-causing germs to grow. Thaicare’s incredible LX LEXIA Hydrating Moist gel is a lightweight moisturizer that absorbs in seconds and leaves skin hydrated for up to 48 hours.
Increase Your Water Intake
It’s overhyped, but it works! Like most of our organs, the skin requires water, and a lack of water can cause it to feel dry, dull, and unhealthy. As a result, drinking 2 to 3 liters of water per day during the summer is advised, equating to 7 to 8 glasses of water per day.
A good sunscreen is essential. Excessive sun exposure can cause wrinkles, premature aging, pigmentation, sunburns, and even skin cancer. This step should not be skipped. You can even apply makeup after you have applied your sunscreen. Always put on sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going outside. When sunscreen is washed off or not applied frequently, its effectiveness diminishes. So, remember to reapply it every 3-4 hours. It should be used all year, even during cloudy seasons and winters.
Stay low on makeup
We all enjoy wearing makeup, but in the summer, you should keep it to a minimum. To preserve the skin’s natural glow, avoid wearing heavy makeup and remove it before going to bed to allow the pores to breathe.
Change your skincare products
In the summer, look for natural ingredients and skin nutrition products, as these tend to neutralize free radicals caused by pollution and sun exposure. Thaicare has an amazing collection of moisturizers and serums designed to protect your skin during the hot summer.
