Skin Care Tips For Summer

Don’t get us wrong, we love summers. How can we not? It’s all about bright colors, fresh fruits, beaches & ice cream, but we know that it’s not all rainbows & sunshine. Each year the season also brings along dry skin, breakouts, itchiness, acne, and so many other frustrating skin conditions. The season takes a toll on our skin and leaves it looking lifeless and dull. Be it the blazing heat, pollution, or humidity - each factor contributes to our skincare woes.

Our skin and the way we do our skincare change with each season. Just as we switch from our fluffy woolens to breezy dresses come summer, we also need to make tiny changes in our skincare routine to keep our skin fresh.

Choosing the right products and creating a daily skincare routine that suits you can be quite the challenge. Even though each person’s skin is different and when it comes to skincare there can’t be a one size fits all solution - but there are certain skincare tips and tricks that work for everyone. A few ground rules can help you maintain naturally clear and glowing skin in summers, and make all the difference in the world in retaining the youthfulness of your beautiful skin.

If you’re anything like us, hydrated, and well-nourished skin is your holy grail for summers too, and you want to know more about how you can give your skin that extra TLC this season. Cheer up because here are our top seven skincare remedies to keep you glowing this season.

#1 Exfoliate for healthy skin

A common mistake is to leave out exfoliation from the daily skincare regime, fearing that scrubs will dry out the skin. However, exfoliation helps remove dead skin from the body and allows it to breathe freely. It also gets rid of unhealthy tans, impurities and clears out pores. Choosing the right scrub is what makes all the difference! We recommend a gentle scrub to keep your skin nourished, but clean.

Our Coffee Body Scrub With Coconut is a popular pick, and a close second favorite is the Detox Green Tea Face Scrub. These are the perfect choices if you’re looking for something to scrub off a rough day. They’ll get rid of all the build-up and leave your skin feeling soft and loved! (A huge plus point would be how amazing they smell!)

#2 Sunscreen is your best friend

We cannot stress enough the importance of sunscreen during summers. UV rays are harmful all around the year, but more so during summers, all thanks to the harsh and direct sun rays.

In order to avoid premature aging, wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots, make sure to choose a sunscreen with a minimum SPF between 30 to 50. Irrespective of whether you’re under direct sunlight or not - use sunscreen every day! Daily application of sunscreen goes a long way in keeping your skin bright and young.

You can try our Detox Green Tea Gel Body Lotion, it’s packed with vitamin C which is a natural sun protector. It improves the overall health of your skin and helps with sun damage protection.

#3 Don’t go light on the lotion

Moisturization can be a tricky business during the summer. Most lotions are either too thick or too light. The fine balance between a lotion that allows for instant absorption and doesn’t sit on your skin or make it look dull and oily is the perfect choice. Any product that blocks your pores will only lead to more breakouts.

From our range, your perfect moisture partner is this Oil-Free Face Moisturizer - the secret ingredients being caffeine-rich coffee and hyaluronic acid which keep your skin toned and hydrated. For the body we’d go for the Raw Coffee Body Lotion - its non-greasy formula gives lightweight moisturization which is ideal for everyday use.

#4 Self care is evergreen

The easiest way to unwind after a tiring day for us is to indulge in a bit of self-care. Nothing can help you relax better than a cooling face mask after a sultry day of chores or work. A good face mask will leave your skin fresh and supple.

Take your pick from our amazing range of Coffee Face Masks. Each of these masks offers you a boost of hydration and is an instant pick-me-up. Uniquely crafted for different kinds of skin types, these masks are vegan, cruelty-free & PETA certified.

#5 Go hand-in-hand with hygiene

Summers can get really sweaty and hygiene plays an important role. A cold shower in the morning and at night washes away all the day’s impurities and helps you sleep better. Having a shower twice a day not only helps you feel more active but also prevents any kind of skin rashes. Our fav bath time products are these uber-cute Coffee Bathing Bars. Elevate your shower experience with these bars, they’ll leave you feeling rejuvenated throughout the day.

#6 Antioxidants are our friends

Products enriched with antioxidants are what give our skin that extra glow. Ingredients like vitamin C, green tea extract or caffeine help prevent skin damage and boost collagen. They also help in settling inflammation which might be caused due to the extreme heat. Adding in a layer of serum rich in antioxidants is a good way to layer on some extra summer protection.
The Naked Detox Green Tea Face Serum works wonders for all skin types as it’s fueled with anti-inflammatory properties of natural green tea which soothe the skin and make it more radiant.

#7 Age-old home remedies

Ever since we can remember people have relied on home remedies for glowing skin in summers. Some evergreen ingredients that you’ll easily spot at home have properties that work as great skincare remedies. Our top favourite is aloe vera, which works wonders to soothe dry and itchy skin. You can also try DIY face packs, like the classic sandalwood and rose water face mask. All of this from the convenience of your home!

Apart from these suggestions, there’s another thing we can’t forget to mention.

When it comes to self care and caring for your body, being mindful about your fitness and food habits always goes a long way. Don’t forget to get in some light physical activity even if it’s just a short walk. Similarly, eating the right food will help you regulate your body temperature and beat the heat naturally. Lastly, to get that glowing skin naturally in summer remember to stay hydrated and drink lots of water.

These would be our tried and tested, most loved suggestions, recommendations, and products to make your body feel cared for during a harsh summer. Don’t just take our word for it, go ahead and try them out and let us know what your thoughts are.
