The skin always suffers the most. It is the first point of contact with the environment, and the environment is usually not very friendly to the skin. The worst enemy is the weather, whether it is hot or cold. Winters have a typical detrimental effect on the skin, and the same applies to the summers. But you would like to keep a fresh look on the skin at all times of the year, so here are a few tips.
Mud packs are wonderful coolants for the skin. A mud pack could easily be prepared at home using some fuller's earth, lemon, and curd with a bit of water. Apply the mixture to your skin and leave it for about 15 minutes. Wash the face with cold water. Repeat the steps regularly for best results.
Drinking a lot of water would be a positive effort on your part towards the goal of keeping a healthy skin. Dry skin is more susceptible to infection and breakouts. Keep sipping in water regularly throughout the day.
Don't step out in the sun without a sun guard. Lotions and creams with a high SPF should be used to maintain a healthy and glowing skin. These creams and lotions should be repeatedly used on the skin.
Clogging of the skin-pores is fostered by the use of soaps. The oil content of soaps fosters blocking the pores of the skin, and this is what makes the skin amenable to development of acne. So, avoid using soap. Use an oil-free face-wash instead.
