The weather is hot and the way we care for our skin should change.

What worked during harmattan will not work now. This is what you must do to keep your skin fresh.

I know a lot about skin and my skin care line @suavecosmetics has been filled up with skin care products that will take care of you no matter the weather.

Hydrate Your Skin From Within – Hot weather may cause your skin to be dehydrated.  If your skin is dehydrated, it can appear flaky, dull and dry and the first step to hydrating your skin is hydrating your body. It is recommended for you to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Your body may require more, depending on your daily activities and weight.

Cleanse Your Face – Skin produces more sebum and oil when the weather is hot. You sweat more and your skin will simply get dirty. Cleansing your face with mild, especially soap-free cleanser will help keep your face beautiful and soft during the hot weather.

Have a Healthy Diet – You are what you eat – this is absolutely true also in this case. Your skin is most of the time, a reflection of your diet. For a beautiful, healthy complexion and an way of beating the negative effect of heat on your skin, eat unprocessed food, lots of fruit and vegetables, HEALTHY FATS, avoid sugar as much as you can

Exfoliate Your Skin- I love scrub and this the main reason why I have a great skin. I have scrubbed twice a week for more than 2 years.

Use a face and body scrub at least twice a week to remove excess dirt and oil from the skin. Only, remember to use a scrub suitable for your skin type and massage the scrub gently in a circular motion.

Avoid Heavy Makeup – Heavy makeup prevents the skin from breathing. Humidity and heat also impact the skin’s ability to breathe. Instead of heavy foundation and other cosmetics, you could consider using just a lightly tinted moisturizer if you need to wear some makeup.

Moisturize well – A moisturizer is vital to protect your skin when the weather is hot. You should choose a non-greasy formula based on your skin type but be sure you check the ingredients to be sure you will not be applying products that will harm you.

It is best to apply a moisturizer immediately after your bath.

Wear Breathable Clothing – Cotton is the best fabric to wear during summer. Wear light and loose clothing. Avoid tight fitting garments in synthetic fabrics. These can increase your discomfort and make you sweat more, which in turn makes the skin itchy and can lead to infections.

Shower and take care of your skin always– Maintaining good hygiene is very important during summer. A cool bath in the night before you go to bed can help remove all the dirt, grime and sweat your body has accumulated during the day and prevent rashes.

Refresh Your Skin Often – A good toner can be effective in helping to close your pores. To prevent sweat and oil from clogging these pores, use aloe Vera, Rose or cucumber-based toner or mist as they are lighter.

Follow a Good Skincare Regimen – Maintain a vey good skincare regimen and follow it religiously. Choose a water based and non-greasy product. Cleansing, toning and moisturizing twice a day will help.
