Mumbai, India (PressExposure) May 22, 2009 -- Mumbai, May 22nd, 2009: Summer, the time for beaches, endless days of sparkling sun, cool drinks and lazing around, can also bring a lot of skincare woes for a woman. Some common problems that women face due to the increased exposure to sun include pigmentation, uneven skin tone, tanning and acne. So when summer should be all about wearing your best summer wear and flaunting glowing, sun kissed skin, most of us go about hiding our skin in a poor attempt to protect it.
Here are a few tips from Dr Aparna Santhanam (MD) from Kaya Skin Clinic on how to take care of your skin this summer and flaunt smooth, glowing & flawless skin: - Use a sunscreen at all times between the timings of 8 am to 6 pm. Ensure that your sunscreen has a UV A and UV B block. Look for words like broad spectrum and dual protection which indicate this.
- Apply the sunscreen at least 20 minutes before you step outdoors. Ensure that you cover all exposed parts including ear lobes, neck and arms liberally with the sunscreen. Reapply the sunscreen every four hours. If you are spending a day at the beach or the pool, ensure you apply the sunscreen every one hour.
- Use sunglasses to protect your eyes. Try using an umbrella when you go out in sun. This will protect your skin and your hair.
- Bolster your diet with food high in anti oxidants like carrots, papaya, pomegranate, beetroots and water melon, for internal sun protection. And donât forget to drink at least 2 litres of water every day!
- Indian skin, especially the lips are prone to darkening and pigmentation. Do use a lip balm with sunscreen to prevent darkening.
- Check areas like forehead and around your mouth to ensure you detect and seek help early for pigmentation.
- Services like skin polishing and detanning peels can help you reverse tanning quickly. Do check with your dermatologist regarding the same.
- Wear loose cotton clothes in light colours and avoid wearing socks and tight, closed shoes. Try and catch a shower twice a day, to feel cool and refreshed.
