Indian summers, best known for their harsh nature, brings news about a close acquaintance or friend who has to deal with sunburns or heat strokes for spending prolonged hours in the open under the hot sun. Our parents and grandparents remembered to include ways to keep ourselves hydrated and insulated during summer season. At Venkataeswara Hospitals, we understand your concern and have come up with natural remedies that can protect yourselves and your loved ones from the harmful UV rays from the sun.

  1. Never step out without sunscreen
  • Always use a sunscreen that has both UVA and UVB cover and an SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of 30 to protect your skin from harmful UV rays of the sun. 
  • Ensure that you apply the sunscreen at least 30 minutes before stepping out. 
  • Remember sunscreens work only for 4-5 hours and you must reapply the sunscreen at least thrice a day (07:00 AM -11:00 PM – 03:00 PM). 
  • If you are planning to engage in water-based activities, you must use a water-resistant sunscreen to protect your skin.
  1. Create a skin care regimen
  • Follow a skin care routine to improve your skin tone and texture. 
  • Use a mild cleanser twice a day to wash your face and pat dry. After patting your skin dry, simply apply a fragrance-free moisturiser to keep your skin feeling supple and hydrated. Follow this routine twice a day to get a glowing skin.
  1. Drink fresh fruit juices
  • Water and fresh fruit juices can only keep your body healthy and hydrated. Avoid fizzy carbonated drinks. 
  • Stay away from junk foods. As they contain unhealthy oils, they can induce acne breakouts and make you prone to other skin conditions. 
  • Fruits and vegetables that are high in Vitamin C help your skin to be healthy, glowing and perfect.
  1. Use natural face packs
  • Natural ingredients are more favourable to your skin and can ensure that no harm or foul is caused to it in case it stays on for a longer period of time. 
  • Natural face packs produce quick results to get a glowing skin even with your first application! 
  • A simple face pack to follow. Take a banana, which is rich in Vitamins A, B, and E and potassium, and mash it well. 
  • To that, add a few drops of honey, which can exfoliate your skin, and apply the mixture on your face for 15-20 minutes and wash it off. 
  • You can apply this face pack twice a week to see excellent results. 
  • Once in a week, you can use natural ingredients like coffee powder available at home to remove dead cells in your skin. Follow these steps diligently to ensure that your skin stays flawless and protected this summer.
