Summer is on its way. And it’s the perfect season to flaunt your beautiful summer collection straight from your wardrobe. Floral dresses with a huge variety of seasonal fruits are obviously one of the best parts but it’s also time to spend some more time while caring for your skin. The scorching heat of the sun, polluted wind, dust particles and the fluctuating weather conditions cause severe damage to your skin by clogging the skin pores and tanning it badly. So, let’s be very careful and pay attention to your skin so that even after excessive sweating you look fresh and healthy.
Take a look at these easy home remedies to stay glowing and glamorous throughout the summer.
Grab the sunscreen first:
Sunscreen is your best friend throughout the year, especially when you are going to participate in a beach party. But often you forget it at your place.

Don’t forget to put your sunscreen in your daily makeup routine. Some sunscreen lotions are there which contain antioxidants to boost your skin health with everyday use. Opt for lip balms rather than lip-gloss or lip colors since they help in keeping the moisture intact. While purchasing lip colors or lipsticks, look for SPF in it, at least 15! Get a sun-kissed glow with the application of self-tanners. If your skincare budget is higher, a salon visit can be worthy enough. Apply the sunscreen just 15-20 minutes before you go out. Choose the sunscreen sprays to avoid that sticky feeling throughout the day. Stay covered and protected with a pair of smart sunglasses, scarf and don’t forget to re-apply the sunscreen in every 2-3 hours.
