Chilling on the poolside, picnics in the gardens, having a cookout… but have you stopped to wonder what effects the sun may have on your skin? Think of a damaged face and scalp from the exposure to harsh sunlight – Think. Think about it. There is no secret that excessive exposure to the sun’s rays on our body tends to burn our skin. Think of your hair getting some strange colouring. The UV A radiation tends to age the skin, whereas the UV B radiation tends to burn the skin. These are the havocs of the sun. How do you, however, make sure that your skin and hair stay healthy even as you enjoy your summer days? Below are some of the best summer tips to keep your skin and hair healthy. Always!
1. Take skin treatment therapies
When summer comes, your skin may dry and crack from both the heat and the dehydrating effects of the sun. To stay happy with a revitalized skin, free from cracks and a drying effect, hop into Metamorphosis clinic for an advanced skin treatment which should revitalize your skin beyond what mere lotions can do. However so, you may not be a victim of cracking skin or badly dried skin. But you still want to look good over the holidays. Worry not. There is a treatment option for you too. Contact a skin specialist in Mulund. Say you want skin polishing – skin polishing is a controlled pain-free procedure exfoliating dead skin to make the skin glow brighter than the sun. Polishing doesn’t stop with scraping dead skin. You can also have pimples removed with the same process. This can be done for the face or even the full body.
2. Opt for Laser Hair Reduction

You can enjoy the results of the cutting edge laser technology and wear anything at any time without having to worry about unwanted hair. Also, it is absolutely pain-free.
3. Invest in a good Vitamin C serum
Vitamin C serum is always very essential but it is most important in the summer months. It helps to prevent hyperpigmentation. It also protects your skin from absorbing the damaging UV rays. Use this 10 minutes before putting on your sunscreen.
4. Avoid hot and long showers
Most of us tend to shower multiple times during the day in summer months as the sweat builds up. However, you should keep the showers short and a maximum of 2 per day. The first shower should not be more than 5 minutes and the second shower should not be more than 3 minutes. Also, try to bathe with cool water only.
5. Update your Looks – put on a hat
As much as it will be fun experiencing new looks, you will be protecting your scalp from direct sun heat. You will be helping to create a shade to your hair for a cooler scalp and a happier hair day. On the moderation side, you should consider going gentle on shampoo because you don’t want to have your scalp parched either. Remember, it is summer. Everything should be bright. The best of all advice is however to seek the advice or services of a skin or hair specialist for absolute treatment options.
6. SPF is the key !!
It is just so important to apply a good sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 and a PA of +++ inorder to protect your skin from both UVA and UV B radiation. You should just not step out of the home without applying sunscreen-this should be a thumb rule. It should be applied 30 minutes before stepping out and minimum thrice a day. Apply it on other sun-exposed areas like hands, neck and feet as well.
P.S. – Put an alarm in your phone to remind yourself to reapply sunscreen
7. Wear sunglasses and use non-comedogenic makeup only
Sun exposure can tend to try out our eyes too causing significant problems later. Wearing good UV protection sunglasses can go a long way to prevent future problems.
Non-comedogenic makeup means it will not clog your pores. The products you use should be oil-free and lightweight.
8.HYDRATE! HYDRATE! HYDRATE!
I am sure you would have heard this before. But it is extremely important to keep yourself hydrated even more in summer than any other months(does not mean you should not have enough water in other months). You must have 10-12 glasses of water every day. It will help to recover from sunburn too if you have one!
9. Sip your antioxidants
You can incorporate antioxidants in your diet in a routine way. The easiest way is in the form of juices. The following are most rich in antioxidants: watermelon, muskmelon, pomegranate, broccoli, walnuts, carrots, green tea and cranberries.
10. Take Hair treatment Therapies
Hair treatment therapy is the only guaranteed way to keep your hair easier to style and let it loose. After all, it is summer, isn’t it? And in summer you want that hair which you would braid; you want to enhance your hair for faster growth and you want to accessorize afterwards. For goodness’s sake, take Metamorphosis’s hair nourishment treatment option. This medicated treatment will repair fissures present in your hair. Remember, hair nourishment is the most effective and recommended treatment for hair loss. Is it a cure you want or is it prevention?
