Moisturise with a light lotion every day after taking a shower. Creams can be used in winters and lotions in summer unless you have very dry skin in which case you can use thick body butters and creams even in summer

In summers the heat humidity and sweat can take a toll on your skin hence it is important to change your skin care routine as per season. Exfoliate all the dead skin cells sitting on your body. All the dead skin that has accumulated over the winter makes your skin look dull and lifeless. Make your own scrub or get yourself your favourite scrub and exfoliate gently every other day in circular motion. Dr. Shuba Dharmana, dermatologist, Lejeune medspa gives some tips

Moisturise with a light lotion every day after taking a shower. Creams can be used in winters and lotions in summer unless you have very dry skin in which case you can use thick body butters and creams even in summer.

Use sunscreen with SPF 30 or more over the exposed areas of the body as well as the face. You must use enough to ensure adequate protection. Spread a thin film over the skin that acts as a barrier.

Hydrate plenty in summers to combat the heat. Carry a glass bottle of water with you which you may flavor with berries or mint or lemon to make it interesting. Tender coconut water is a good alternative.

Go light on the makeup. If you have clear skin sunscreen and a light BB cream may be all you need but if you do decide to use foundation, use sunscreen underneath over which you can apply a light liquid foundation.

Nutrition: It is important to eat plenty of vegetables and fruit for the antioxidant properties and drink up to 2-3 litres of water a day to increase the hydration levels in summer. Try and decrease the intake of coffee as it can dehydrate skin.

Incorporate more healthy smoothies, probiotic drinks, fresh fruit, and vegetable juices whenever possible. Avoid canned drinks and anything else that comes packaged in a can as they always have preservatives, additives, and sugar that can wreak havoc on your system.
