Summer-Proof your Skin: Top Tips for Indian Men

Now that summer is here, the blazing sun is turning up the heat on everything it touches. In these fiery months, your skin needs all the care it needs to survive its wrath. The first task is to peel back the layers and peek at what makes your skin tick during this season.

Here's a quick rundown of the skin types commonly found among us Indian men:

  1. Oily Skin: Characterized by excessive sebum production, oily skin often appears shiny and is prone to acne and blackheads.
  2. Combination Skin: This type combines oily and dry skin with an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and dry cheeks.
  3. Dry Skin: Dry skin is devoid of moisture and may feel rough. It can become flaky and have rashes during the summer due to sun exposure and dehydration.
  4. Sensitive Skin: Some men may have sensitive skin and are susceptible to redness, irritation, or allergic reactions to environmental factors.

Summer Skincare Tips:

  • Cleanse Regularly

Regardless of skin type, cleansing is needed to remove sweat, dirt, and excess oil building up on the skin's surface. Opt for a gentle paraben-free cleanser to remove impurities without stripping away natural oils.

  • Moisturise

For dry and combination skin, use a lightweight, non-sticky moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated without feeling greasy. Look for moisturizers with ingredients like proline (amino acid), which helps in healing after prolonged sun exposure

  • Use SPF 

Protecting the skin from harmful UV rays prevents sunburn and skin issues. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and apply it generously to all exposed areas, including the face, neck, and ears. Reapply if you are out for more extended periods. 

  • Exfoliate Weekly

Regular exfoliation with a scrub and face mask helps remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and improve overall skin texture. Apply once or twice weekly to help reset your skin.

  • Follow a Healthy Diet

A balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and omega-3 fatty acids supports overall skin health. Foods high in antioxidants, like berries, also reduce damage caused by environmental pollutants.
