Top 5 budget friendly Skincare essentials for summer

Summers are beautiful, the gleaming sun and happy skies make it all the more pleasant but at times it can get hotter than usual and your body cannot adapt to it like your mind. You need to have a skin routine that involves baby steps at healthy and glowing skin all through summers.

These are top 5 essentials you will need to keep your skin unharmed and energetic throughout the summers.

1. Rose water

Known for its soothing and calming effect, a splash of rosewater will take away leftover dirt and skin follicles and help it breathe more. Carry a spray on rose water bottle in your bag instead of wet tissues for instant refreshment and skin cleansing.

2. Aloe Vera gel

A very budget friendly remedy for so many skin problems like oiliness, acne, blemishes and dullness, Aloe Vera is an ingredient you will swear by through the summers. A massage with an aloe Vera gel or an aloe Vera face pack will instantly brighten your skin. It is also known for its detoxifying and purifying effects.

3. Sandalwood Face pack

Sandalwood is known for its anti-tanning, anti-ageing and skin softening properties. 15 minutes of sandalwood pack once a week will take away all the ill effects of heat and pollution on your skin. It is easily available at general stores and can be used with milk, rose water or drinking water.

4. Sunscreen

Precaution is always better than cure, which is why sunscreens are your best mate these summers. After a good shower apply a handful of sunscreen all over your hands, legs and face around 30 minutes before stepping out in the sun for it to show its effect. Sunscreens tend to be slightly expensive because they are constructed to prevent skin from severe damages, hence they are totally worth the investment.

5. Anti septic and germ killers.

Stock your toiletries with Dettol, Suthol and other anti septic and germ killers. The moisture level during summers is higher than usual, encouraging germ building and resulting in infections. To maintain hygiene and sustainable lifestyle it is important to stay germ free.
