Skincare for this hot, hot summer!

Summer is the season when you have to take special care of your skin.The changes in the weather and weather conditions makes it essential to modify and adjust skin care techniques so as to fittingly combat the varying climates. Make sure pamper your skin.All you have to do to love your skin is keep it healthy. Look after it and love it
(Wow, Lindsay barely looks 40 in this pic I wonder what kind of skin care routine she follows? Ohhh, tell us Lindsay! Share your secrets!)
Here are some ways to arm your skin against the harsh summer sun. Hydration is the key to healthy skin. So do not forget to stock up on water and aqua rich foodstuff such as fresh foods and vegetables. External hydration is also essential. Remember to moisturise your skin after taking a shower at least once a day if your skin is oily and thrice a day if you suffer from dry skin. Exfoliate your skin using a mild, deep facial cleanser to keep your skin smooth and clean.
Try avoiding skin exposure to the sun when it is the most powerful from 11am to 4 pm.
Do not use hot water on your skin when bathing or washing. It is advisable to go for gentle skin services like microdermabrasion or glycolic facials under medical supervision. Try to use minimal makeup because some fragrance and products can induce sunburn especially when the skin is exposed to the sun.[Source]Keep skin nourished with an herbal moisturizer your. Ayurvedic formulations that sandalwood, turmeric, Brahmi, Amla and Aloe Vera are the skin-friendly herbs look for. At least once a week, do yourself a fruit or vegetable mask appropriate to treat your skin type. Cucumbers, avocados, apricots and papayas lend themselves well to homemade masks. Puree fruit or vegetable and some yogurt, honey, oatmeal and lemon juice for oily skin (with a mixture) or rosewater (for dry skin) and apply evenly to face. Let stay for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with warm water [source]
