THE HEAT and the summer sun require special consideration when determining your beauty regime. Here is some advice to make sure you stay looking your best and indeed remain healthy during the heat of the day:

  1. Use a high quality sunscreen and you should normally go for a Protection factor of at least 30, preferably 50, Apply the sunscreen at least 30 minutes before you go out in the sun, so that it has time to soak into your skin.
  2. The strong summer sun can also harm your hair. The hot and humid conditions can cause your scalp to sweat. Shampooing daily can be harmful. The best way to protect your hair is to use a protective hair mask at least once a week.
  3. Along with a protective hair mask, you should also invest in hairspray. Hair tends to become frizzy and unruly in summer and the best way to keep your hair looking fresh and shiny is to use hairspray.
  4. .4. Maintain the pH balance of your skin with glycerine-rich facial water. This will nourish your skin and keep it soft and supple.
  5. Summer is also a time of dirt and grime in the air. A face wash is a handy thing to keep in your bag. The lotion will help you to keep your skin clean.
  6. It is very common to have chapped and dry lips in summer. This is because the lips are the thinnest and tend to get dry easily. Make it a point to carry a sun-protecting lip balm and apply it before you head out.
  7. Consider using an anti-deodorant, rather than an antiperspirant. You need to perspire in the heat, this is the body’s natural way of cooling your body down and stopping this action could cause your body to overheat and for you to develop heatstroke.
  8. It is common to sweat in summer. Also, the summer dust and environmental damage can make your skin dull. Use a suitable scrub to cleanse your body of the dirt and grime.
  9. Make sure you stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water and avoid excess alcohol. This should be an essential part of your health and Beauty regime at any time of year but obviously is even more important in the heat.
  10. Invest in a good moisturising facial once a week. It will help to nourish dry skin and also keep it healthy. So we hope you look your best and enjoy the summer.
