Summer care tips for your Skin for Men !


Summer sun and temperatures are beloved because they provide you with the opportunity to spend more time outdoors doing the things you love in vacations or taking short weekend breaks However, the sun and temperatures come at a price and it is your skin that pays that price. Sun damage can lead to premature aging of the skin, wrinkles, marks, dry skin, and even skin cancer over time. The hottest season of the year requires careful thought for your skin even as you enjoy the heat and freedom of summer. Especially in our country it is very important that you special care of yourself because the temperatures during summer in our country may go as up as 50 degrees Celsius.

I would be sharing a few tips today on how to take care of skinn during this harsh summer.

  • Wearing Sunscreen :

Not all sunscreens are made alike – some provide a physical barrier (minerals) while others provide a chemical barrier that absorbs ultraviolet rays. SPF stands for “sun protection factor” and indicates the length of time you can stay in the sun; you calculate the SPF by the number of minutes you can stay in the sun without burning normally.[3] (For example, if your skin turns red after 10 minutes in the sun, a sunscreen with SPF of 15 should allow you to spend 150 minutes in the sun.) However, concerns have peaked about what is in your sunscreen and just how effective sunscreens really are. Many sunscreens penetrate the skin and add to the chemical overload that your body is already subjected to with daily modern living.[4] There is no consensus that sunscreens work and there is no proof that higher SPF sunscreens are any better than lower level SPF and they may simply contain more chemicals

Thus sunscreen should be used only as one part of your approach to guarding your skin during the summer; it cannot be the only method and it isn’t foolproof.

  • Stay out of Harsh Sun :

The hottest part of the day during the summer is the most damaging time. Don’t stay out in the sun for long periods of time around the hottest hours; the longer you’re outside, the longer your skin is exposed to the radiation. Get your exercise and activities done in the earlier, cooler hours, or in the later, cooler hours of the day. So it is advisable to avoid sun from 10 AM – 16:00 hrs.

  • Wear Protective clothing and Sunglasses
  • Cover up as much skin as you can, using lightweight fabrics when it’s really hot and uncomfortable. Choose fabrics that won’t itch, scratch, or overheat you and prefer light colors over dark ones, to keep the heat level down. Wear a cap and helmet during walking or riding a motor cycle.. Your facial skin will benefit enormously from a permanent ring of shade over it. Wear sunglasses to protect your sensitive eye skin (and eyes). Eyes are prone to melanomas and cataracts, and the sensitive skin around your eyes is prone to fast aging.


  • Take a Shower after swimming As the chlorine can dry out your skin or even may cause allergies to sensitive skins.


  • Avoid applying perfumes or deos directly on your skin: The alcohol in your perfumes or deodorants can result in marks or stains on your skin. So it is advisable to avoid using them directly on your skinn especially during summer. Alternatively you can spray them on your clothes to be on the safer side.



  • Drink plenty of Water: Lastly the most important of all is having water regularly throughout the day. It is easy for skin to become parched during the summer months. Dehydration results in dry skin, frown-lines, spots, a sluggish complexion and a lack of “glow. Water will both hydrate your skin and flush out toxins that can mar your complexion. Hence it is advisable to drink water regularly throughout the day to keep you and your skin hydrated.
