Summer is knocking on the door – Get ready to take care of your Skin

Don’t you think there is an insufficiency of publications covering the topic of summer skin care? To make sure you don’t become a victim of heat and hyper-pigmentation, do you know what adjustments you should be making in your skin care routine? There are so many things that you must know in order to take proper care of your skin all through summer.

Don’t forget to wear quality sunscreen. Summer months mean, scorching sunlight. You should always wear a proper Sunscreen as hanging out in summer makes us more prone to freckles and hyper-pigmentation. Most of the people worry about the sun spots that start appearing on their skin as soon as they get in their 30s. If you want to keep your skin safe from the deteriorating effects of Ultraviolet-A and Ultraviolet-B present in sunlight, you should apply a sunscreen of SPF 20 or higher on your skin on a regular basis. Apply a suitable sun screen or moisturizing cream with SPF, after washing your skin with water and drying it for a while. You can then wear make up if you want. If you are going to stay for the whole day under the sun, it is necessary that you apply sunscreen after every 2 to 3 hours. Time to reapply sunscreen varies person to person – depending on how much the person is sweating.

It is recommended that you combat oil with oil! Some people buy sun screen wipes for that purpose but oil cleansing method is way better to moisturize your skin without overdoing it. These types of cleansers are less messy and lightweight. Olive oil is mostly recommended to the people having dry skin. However, people having oily skin can benefit their skin with grape seed oil. Let your skin soak for a few minutes after applying oil on it with gentle hands. Then, place hot towel on your skin for some time... this way oil penetrates the epidermis and dissolves the other oil present on your skin. And then, rub off the oil present on your skin. You may need to moisturize your skin after this if it gets dry; however, most won’t need this as the weather is warm. This method effectively cleans your skin and moisturizes it without making your skin heavy with the use of a lotion or cream. This method, however, is not recommended for removing makeups.

Moisture is no good... you have got to be watchful. In summer time, even the people having dry skin don’t complain much about its dryness. If you have dry skin, you just need to apply some light weight oil in areas where you feel there is a need. Exposure to sunlight can cause dry patches on your skin and you can feel more oil on your skin. It is not recommended that you put oil on your skin multiple times during day time. Rather, you should only use it where you feel it’s dry. One more thing that is worth knowing here is you must use the same type of oil for cleansing every time.

Some crucial Beach Accessories

Packing all the right accessories for the beach is the surety that your beach experience is going to be pretty amusing, sensational, and elegant. Dressing up perfectly for the beach is just as important as for any other place... irrespective of whether you are going to the Jersey shore or a holiday cruise. I am about to discuss a couple of beach accessories that, I think, are crucial for changing your field day from ordinary to extraordinary!

A pair of King-size Sunglasses

No, simple shades are not going to work there! You will need to get a pair of fabulous looking king-size sunglasses that are good for covering almost half of your face. They are not only good for giving you a stylish look, but they are also considered indispensable for keeping your eyes protected against sun. They are available in a huge variety of attractive frames... cat eye, aviator, and pilot. Their shades may differ from light brown to standard black. Getting your pair of sunglasses from the wholesale market is far better than getting them from the store... the reason is they are highly priced there in the stores. Sunglass junkies will certainly opt for getting them from the wholesale market. Vintage stores are also a better option as well as there are chances of finding old-fashioned 70s style king-size sunglasses in a variety of shapes.

Sun Screen Wipes

No wonder, sun screen wipes is a great invention. You must be well aware of their advantages. Soppy sun screens are nothing more than a mess, especially when it comes to applying it on your whole body. With the help of sun screen wipes, you will be able to give your whole body the most needed protection of SPF, with the blink of an eye. Sun screens are likely to leave a residue on your skin and make it a little oily. These wipes makes your skin fragrant and tender to touch. Sun screens wipes are also considered perfect for traveling as they don’t create a mess. Most of the sun screens meet security guidelines so there is, ostensibly, no problem in getting them through the airport, which is definitely another plus.


If you have never taken a sarong on beach before, do it this time... believe me, you are going to thank me for the tip. Activities on a beach are like numerous; believe it or not, sarongs are just appropriate for that each and every activity. They give your bod an eye-catching look so no matter what you are up to, playing beach volleyball or just walking on the walkway, you will love to put it on. Sarongs come in a variety of colors and styles, so you are definitely going to find one just right your bod.

A pair of Erogenous Sandals

It is not because you are at the beach so you have got to wear the rubber flip flops. Getting an erogenous flip flop type rubber sandal with some animal prints or a little wedge is important as it gives you the feeling that you are at the beach to celebrate your vacation. It is going to be a good idea to put on your ankle wrap sandal or the beaded sandal while hiking slowly on the footpath of the beach, don’t you think?
