Skin is the largest organ of our body and performs many vital functions. This sensory organ or tactile organ starts functioning as birth takes places and is the largest eliminative organ which removes toxins / waste from body. Thousands of tiny sweat glands act as a regulator of body temperature. Skin insulates body from outside and protects from microbes and insects etc. The skin is capable of understanding many types of touch qualities, like pleasurable sensation or pain, cold, heat roughness, dryness, smoothness, hardness and softness.

Top 5 Skincare tips for Summer:

        i.            Drink water & Stay hydrated: In summer, skin care loses a lot of water/moisture in form of perspiration, therefore it is very important to keep restoring body’s water level. Drinking good quantity of water and liquids will keep your skin soft and moisturized all day long.  

      ii.            Go for water based moisturizer: Don’t make a mistake of using oil base moisturizer. In summer, oil glands of skin are over activated hence it might clog you skin spores. Water based moisturizer is always a better option.

    iii.            Sun Protection: If you can, try and stay indoors between 11 am and 3 pm. That’s when the sun’s rays are the strongest and can have an adverse effect on your skin. Anyhow you wish to go out, don’t forget to use sunscreen that suites your skin.

     iv.            Cleanse your face frequently: At least 2 to 3 times a day. This is important to do even if you’ve been home all day and feel like your skin is clean. Cleansing and moisturizing your skin before sleeping is an absolute must.

      v.            Cool your skin: Blending half a cucumber and 1 tbsp of yogurt in mixer is simple yet effective homemade face pack. Apply this to your face for 15 minutes and feel completely pampered.
