Beating the heat can be really tough, especially when you know that the second you will step out of the house, you’ll face the harsh heat. In this weather, breathing is a task. Surviving through the day is like surviving a long drawn out battle.
But taking care of yourself, like wearing the right clothes and carrying water is crucial, however, taking care of your skin is equally important.
The hot Summer winds can leave a deep tan on your face. They can even leave your hair brittle and dry and in the worst case scenario, an allergy that might need medical attention if your work involves long hours under the harsh rays of the sun.
So, here are some products that you most definitely should apply before stepping out of the house:
1. Prep Your Skin With Sunscreen
Start by taking some sunscreen and dabbing it gently all over your face. A regular work week means long hours of exposure under the sun which means you need to prep your skin with sunscreen to save your face from the exposure of the harmful UV rays.
A good SPF doesn’t just prevent a burn or a tan but saves you from toxic UV that is known to cause skin cancer. Also, remember to use the sunscreen thirty minutes before you step out in the sun for maximum effect.
2. Carry A Balm Stick With You
The harsh rays of the sun don’t just affect your skin. They also affect your lips. And if you don’t take proper care of your lips, you might end up with chapped lips that look unattractive and unhealthy. To nix that, carry a lip balm that you can use whenever you feel dryness.
3. A Face Mist/ Face Wipes
After long hours outside, if you find yourself, sweating profusely use a face mist or face wipes. It’s not practical to constantly find a washroom to wash your face in situations like these. A face mist or wipes do the job and freshen up your face in seconds.
4. A Good Moisturizer
It’s important to not just moisturize your face before stepping out in the sun but also your entire body or at least the parts that will be exposed in the sun. This will help fight the dryness. Keep your arms, elbows, knees, feet etcetra moisturized.
