I am going to be nagging about the weather everyday from now on. I don’t like summer, everything about it…except for food. Here in Pune, the morning arrives too early with the heat that irritates you out of bed. My eyes become sore with super solar brightness, and getting out of the house means I have to be plastered with a million inches of sunblock.
Summer sunlight is harsh, especially in India and other tropical countries where it can damage your skin intensely. Sun damage causes dullness and premature skin aging. Taking care of your skin in summer is crucial. Sunscreen with high SPF is pretty much your best weapon to fight the summer skin problems. Use non- greasy type of moisturizer and mineral body mist to moisturize and hydrate your skin as summer breeze gets your skin dry out your skin pretty badly. Water and those colorful fruits and berries also help nourishing your skin from within.
But first of all, let have a shower talk…. Ahem! I mean… I mean all skin care routine should start off with nice cleansing. Summer is the time when you can forgot about water heater. Cold water is the way to go. Cool shower can be very refreshing when you use natural products enriched with fruit flavour. Exfoliating your skin regularly also helps removing dead cells and help your skin glow, but you don’t want to step outdoor right after exfoliating. I usually do it at night, so the skin can rest for at lease 12 hours.
My husband gave me this Sweet Raspberry by Fresh Sweet as a summer treat. It is a 3-pieces bath set consisting of shower gel, body lotion and body scrub with a sweet raspberry scent. It’s what my bathroom smell like at the moment. I am in love with this lovely scent of raspberry very much right now. I especially love the body scrub, it’s very light and soothing. The scrub gives an instant smooth and refreshing skin. It’s truly a perfect gift for summer. This cutest package contains 22.75FZ indulging raspberry smoothness. It retails for 15 USD and you can check it out here.
After refreshing shower, I sank in a soft couch with a very big glass of strawberry-orange smoothie and my laptop…. Relax… Z Z Z Z ZZZZ
