How to take care of face in summer at home
Keep the skin clean

It is important to use a suitable facewash to remove the grime from the skin and keeping it clean at all times. It is probably the top suggestion among summer makeup tips.
Do not forget to moisturise
We are sure you have often seen the importance of skin moisturisation iterated while lookig for beauty tips. Moisturising is not just for the cool winter months.The hot air and burning sun during summer can dry out your skin depriving it of glow and suppleness. Even sitting in air-conditioned room for long periods deprives the skin of moisture. Always keep your trusted moisturiser handy and apply at least twice a day or as when needed. You may switch to a lighter, water based moisturiser that will keep the skin supple while avoiding the oiliness.
Scrub a dub dub
Cleansing the surface of the skin is only first step. It is important that it’s also cleansed from within. Exfoliation helps to get rid of dead skin cells and grime that is often responsible for clogging the pores. Blocked pores can lead to pimples, white heads and blackheads leading to more severe skin problems. Exfoliate your face and body 2 to 3 times a week to scrub keep the skin fresh looking always.

Additionally, it can make your skin oily and prone to breakouts. Include seasonal fruits and veggies in your diet and stay away from junk food and sugary drinks as much as you can. Drink 8-10 glasses of water at least every day. Opt for cooling drinks like buttermilk, nariyal pani, aam panna, jal jeera etc. to keep your body hydrated and fresh from inside.
Wear makeup with SPF
