Understanding Different Skin Types

Before diving into summer skincare tips, it's crucial to identify your skin type. Here's a brief overview of common skin types:

Oily Skin Type

Characterized by excess sebum production, oily skin is prone to shine, enlarged pores, and acne breakouts. During the summer, individuals with oily skin may find their skin becoming even more prone to excess oiliness and breakouts due to increased heat and humidity.

Oily Skin Summer Care

  1. Focus on thorough cleansing to remove sweat, dirt, and excess oil that can clog pores and lead to acne breakouts.

  2. Using a gentle, oil-free cleanser twice daily helps to maintain skin cleanliness without over-drying. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Mint Cleanser is a soap-free cleanser that gently sloughs away the day’s dirt, grime, and makeup. This is a boon for oily and acne-prone skin.

  3. Incorporating a lightweight, oil-free moisturiser with mattifying properties can help control shine while providing essential hydration. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Juniper Berry Oil Free Moisturiser is enriched with SPF 15, this lotion protects, moisturises and brightens your skin. It helps regulate the oil level in the skin. The non-greasy gel formula helps heal acne and fades blemishes leaving the skin nourished, fresher and brighter.

  4. Regular exfoliation with salicylic acid-based products helps to unclog pores and prevent the formation of blackheads and whiteheads. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Peppermint Exfol Gel is enriched with active enzymes that deep clean & brighten the skin leaving it blemish-free and refreshed, without irritating or scratching.

  5. Applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily is essential to protect oily skin from sun damage and premature aging without exacerbating oiliness. Blossom Kocchar Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Sunscreen Gel has all-mineral, gel formula that creates a physical barrier between you and the sun

  6. Keep oiliness at bay throughout the day by blotting the skin with oil-absorbing sheets as needed.

Dry Skin Type

Lacking in natural oils, dry skin often feels tight, and rough, and may exhibit flakiness or redness. During the summer months, individuals with dry skin may experience heightened sensitivity and dehydration due to increased sun exposure and warmer temperatures.

Dry Skin Summer Care

  1. To combat dryness and maintain skin health, it's essential to focus on hydration and barrier repair.

  2. Using a gentle, hydrating cleanser helps to cleanse the skin without stripping away its natural oils, preserving moisture levels. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Cleanser is a creamy soap-free cleanser that gently sloughs away the day’s dirt, grime, and make-up. This provides adequate moisture without stripping the skin and its essential nutrients.

  3. Following up with a rich, emollient moisturiser immediately after cleansing helps to lock in hydration and prevent moisture loss throughout the day. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Almond Moisturising Lotion is Enriched with SPF 15, this lotion protects, moisturise, and rejuvenates your skin. It revives the skin leaving it with a lustrous and healthy texture.

  4. Incorporating hydrating serums or essences containing ingredients like hyaluronic acid or vitamin B5 can provide an extra boost of moisture and plumpness to the skin. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Hyaluronic Serum is enriched with the powerful ingredient, hyaluronic acid. This serum is designed to deliver exceptional results, starting with its ability to boost moisture levels, providing deep hydration to the skin.

  5. Applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily is crucial to protect dry skin from sun damage and premature aging. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Carrot Sunscreen Lotion moisturises, soothes and protects your skin.

  6. By prioritising hydration and sun protection, individuals with dry skin can keep their skin comfortable and supple during the summer season.

Combination Skin Type

Combination skin features a mix of oily and dry areas, typically with an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and drier cheeks or vice versa. Combination skin poses a unique challenge during the summer months as individuals may experience both oily and dry areas on their face.

Combination Skin Summer Care

  1. To address the needs of combination skin in the summer, it's essential to strike a balance between managing oiliness in the T-zone and providing adequate hydration to drier areas.

  2. Using a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser helps to cleanse the skin without disrupting its natural moisture balance. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Turmeric Cleanser is a soap-free cleanser that gently sloughs away the day’s dirt, grime, and makeup. It helps improve the skin and imparts radiance.

  3. Applying a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer to the T-zone helps to control shine and prevent congestion while using a richer, more hydrating moisturiser on the cheeks replenishes moisture in drier areas. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Clary Sage Moisturising Lotion is enriched with SPF 15, this lotion protects, moisturises and nourishes your skin. It keeps the skin calm and rejuvenated with each passing day.

  4. Spot-treating acne breakouts in oily areas with targeted treatments containing ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide help to keep skin clear and blemish-free.

  5. Applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily is essential to protect combination skin from sun damage and premature aging. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Cucumber Sunscreen Lotion is an all-mineral, ultra-light formula that provides natural sun safety and soothes your skin.

  6. Pay attention to how your skin responds to different products and environmental factors, adjusting your skincare routine as needed to maintain balance and clarity.

Lifestyle Habits

In addition to skincare routines, adopting certain lifestyle habits can help keep your skin protected and healthy during the summer months. Here are some lifestyle summer care tips:

  1. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body and skin hydrated.

  2. Eat a Balanced Diet: Incorporate fruits, vegetables, and foods rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids into your diet. These nutrients help nourish your skin from the inside out and protect it from sun damage.

  3. Limit Sun Exposure: Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, especially during peak hours between 10am and 4pm When outdoors, seek shade, wear protective clothing, and use sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to shield your skin from harmful UV rays.

  4. Wear Sunglasses and Hats: Protect your eyes and face from sun damage by wearing sunglasses with UV protection and wide-brimmed hats. This helps reduce the risk of eye damage and premature aging of the skin.

  5. Avoid Hot Showers: While it may be tempting to take hot showers, they can strip your skin of its natural oils and lead to dryness and irritation. Opt for lukewarm water instead and limit shower time to prevent moisture loss.

  6. Get Sufficient Sleep: Aim for seven to nine hours of quality sleep each night to allow your skin time to repair and regenerate. Lack of sleep can contribute to dark circles, fine lines, and overall skin dullness.
