This is the most vital part of your summer skin care regime. Use foaming face washes instead of soaps. Use products especially designed for sensitive skin if you are susceptible to rashes or get suntanned easily. L’Oreal, Olay, Neutrogena, Ponds, Cetaphil, and Uriage are some of the known brands whose products you can try without any hesitation. Towards the end of the day, apply cleansing milk and then wash your face.
After cleansing, the next step is toning. Toning is not all the time required. Toner comes into the picture when you keep on sweating during the day, but cannot wash your face every time. Simply use a cotton ball soaked in a toner and wipe your face with it. Toner works like a cleansing agent.
Moisturizing is also one of the most important steps in skin care. It becomes more important while you are going to bed. While buying a moisturizing cream or lotion see to it that it contains antioxidants like Vitamin A, C, and E. As these antioxidants protect your skin from the free radicals that result due to pollution and stress. It also prevents your skin from premature aging. You can try out products from various brands like, La Roche Posay, L’Oreal, Vichy, Olay Total Effects with multivitamins.
Chuck away your last year’s unused sunscreen because they are not intended to last forever. Be on a safer side and pick a new one. Any sunscreen cream or lotion will make you feel a little greasy, but you can use a loose powder or compact powder to avoid that greasiness. If your skin tans, use a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 50. Try out Nivea, Vichy, Neutrogena, La Roche Posay, L’Oreal solar expertise, Copper tone, Banana Boat, for tanned skin. Apply these lotions not only on your face, but on you’re those body parts as well which are exposed to the sun, and apply it in every 1-2 hours for better results.
