It’s never too early to start thinking about how to keep your skin smooth!

With summers just around the corner, its time to air out the sundresses and bring out the shorts (Delight the Barneys of the world eh?!) , time to flaunt the skin that you have carefully pampered through the winter months........but with the long days under the sun, the exposed skin quickly takes a harsh beating. As it gets warmer outside, our skin gets dehydrated and moody, it can be oily one day and parchment like the next.It needs special care to make sure it gets what it needs and keeps looking its best.

We can’t forget about our legs and arms as we change our beauty routines to gear up for the heat. This summer my legs are going to look great, and so can yours with these simple summer-skin upkeep tips.

Dab dont Drag. Pat yourself dry after the shower no matter how much of a hurry you are in.The humidity and the water makes your skin very sensitive and  dragging the towel across the vulnerable skin not only strips it of the oils but also damages it.

Moisturize! The summer air sucks the moisture out of your skin just as much as the winter skin does.  To keep up with the changing climate, you should moisturize your skin with a non sticky lotion at least once per day. Apply your moisturiser onto slightly damp skin, it gets absorbed better.

Use the Right Razor.  A dull razor leaves your skin irritated not to mention the hours it can take to get it done.  Change the blades or replace your disposable razor often during the summer. Opt for razors that contain a moisturizing strip above the blades to soothe the skin.
Shave Often.  It’s a misconception that shaving your legs too often causes the skin to dry out. Actually,if done correctly, shaving often provides much needed gentle exfoliation for your legs. Don’t forget to shave in the direction that your hair grows, going against the grain might give you freedom from having to shave too often but it can 
cause in-grown hair too.

Use a Mild Soap.  Harsh soaps can strip the skin of natural oils. Surprisingly, most antibacterial soaps are too harsh and change the pH of your skin until sebum balances it again , causing your skin more harm than good.  Choose a milder soap for the days you shave. Consider investing in an unscented or hypoallergenic soap.

Dont step outside without a covering of sorts! Indian summers are called so because of a reason and that is the strong sunshine.Do your skin a favour and keep it away from direct sunshine  and if you do venture out make sure to carry scarves, caps or umbrellas with you.Even newspapers can come in handy I tell ya! make sure to cover your eyes with dark sun glasses as the skin around the eyes is super delicate and gets damaged very easily! 

Control your intake of alcoholic beverages. I know Summer means parties but alcohol helps in drying out your system and as a result you are dehydrated.Opt for fresh juices and sparkling water instead!

Till next Time Stay Beautiful Girls!!
