Summers are just around the corner in Pakistan. In fact in some parts of the world summer has already begun. Despite of all the benefits it brings, skin care becomes a big issue in this season as heat brings with it grease and sweat and it is a nightmare for people with oily skin, dry or normal skin alike.
While in winters dryness and lack luster skin were a big problem, in summers acne, clogged pores, blackheads and greasy skin becomes the common complaints. Here we list few skin care habits that you should adopt in order to keep your skin fresh and shinning even in the sultry summer heat.
Cleanliness is the key to prevention of acne and moles. Due to oil and sweat, the pores are clogged causing bacteria to grow and that results in stubborn acne that even when cured leave behind scars. So exfoliate at least once daily. If you have oily skin do it twice once in the day and once in the night. Otherwise once in the morning is must. Use quality products that is suited to your skin type. Do read the ingredients and side effects of the face wash that you buy before using.
Lemon is a good natural cleansing agent and is an ingredient in many skin care products.
