As the summer comes, our skin is more vulnerable to damage due to the sun's UV (ultraviolet) rays. The intensity of sun rays increases during the summer months which leads to various skin problems such as sun tan, dark patches, acne, premature aging, pigmentation, and many more.
The excessive sweating and sebum secretion due to the extremely hot and humid weather can clog skin pores causing breakouts, acne, skin irritation, redness, and blackheads.
A regular and appropriate skin care routine can protect and keep your skin healthy and beautiful to a great extent. Some basic skin care tips such as applying sunscreen with the right SPF, using a hat or umbrella, drinking sufficient water, using more hydrating products, and eating seasonal fruits can help you to achieve the skin that you always look for.
By taking care of your skin during the summer months, you can help prevent damage and keep your skin healthy and glowing.
