Come summer and your skin takes a toll because of the harsh heat. Times like these, it calls for special attention to avoid looking dry and dull. Besides following a strict beauty regime – cleansing, moisturising, sunscreens and treatments – it is also important to maintain a healthy diet. We’ve compiled a few tips below that will have your skin glowing all Summer long!
For flawless and healthy skin in summer, drinking water is an absolute must. Six to eight glasses of water everyday helps in flushing out toxins. Secondly, avoid eating junk food. It not only creates deficiency of nutrients, but also leads to toxins in the body. Instead, eat food rich in vitamins and minerals such as salmon, leafy greens and nuts.
You must also drink adequate water in summer to keep your skin looking youthful and fresh. Dehydration can make it look dull and aged. Avoid sodas, aerated drinks and packaged juices completely. Replace these with healthy and natural substitutes like coconut water, refrigerated green tea which is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body including improved brain function, fat loss, and watermelon juice which is also among the richest sources of lycopene, a cancer-fighting antioxidant. For an instant boost of hydration try using our SUPERLIFT® 3D Deep Hydration Lifts Masks containing Hyaluronic Acid to help restore moisture and elasticity.
