Summer season is here! The umbrellas and funky shades are out. Bright colors are waiting to be flaunted. It is bright everywhere. Summer spreads much energy and cheer. As the weather warms and the humidity skyrockets, our skin reacts too. During summers the skin is subjected to a variety of external factors like the sun, UV rays, dust, heat etc. which can result in several skin problems. So, when the mercury continues to rise and the heat waves batter the skin, it is time to take extra care of your skin. Here are some great tips you can follow under the supervision of a dermatologist to keep you going and glowing this summer season: Clean well - Use an appropriate cleanser as per your skin type and skin concerns twice daily followed by an appropriate toner. Do not cleanse too often because this can break down the skin’s protective barrier, causing excessive dryness and irritation, and may also lead to breakouts. Replenish Moisture - Whatever be your skin type, you must moisturize. Apply a moisturizer appropriate for your skin type and skin needs to keep your skin soft and supple. A lighter, preferably water based moisturizer is recommended. If you are susceptible to acne or pimples, use a non-comedogenic and oil free moisturizer. Protect from the sun - The sun's UV rays can damage your skin throughout the year. Choose a good broadspectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30. Apply your sunscreen 20 to 30 minutes before going out. Apply a good amount of sunscreen on all exposed body parts and reapply every two hours or after getting out of the water or after exercise. Apply and liberally re-apply a lip balm with SPF to protect your lips as well, even if you are using lipstick. Cover yourself well - Lightweight, cotton clothes along

with a cap, scarf or broad-brimmed hat and sunglasses act as shields from harmful UV rays. Exfoliate - Facial scrubs and masks may help lift off the dead, dull, sun-damaged skin cells revealing the healthier skin below and remove the tan. Use a mild facial exfoliator for the face and a good body scrub for the body. Use Instant face packs - Instant face packs like curd with honey for dry skin, lemon with rose water for oily skin and lemon with honey for normal skin used at least twice a week may help. Maintain proper hydration - Drink adequate amount of water throughout the day. If you are on the go, try carrying a bottle of water and a container of fresh fruit with you to prevent dehydration and heat stroke.

Wedding happens once in a life and to make it memorable, everyone wants each and everything perfect, best and impeccable. Indian weddings are full of colors, and beautiful mix of traditions, culture and family values. So make it memorable. Start with your attire. Create your own style statement by not just focusing on red. Try different colors like gold, emerald green, silver, violet, pink, fuchsia etc. Opt from the fabric i.e. brocade, crepe-silk, georgette, tulle and brocade. Either you opt for a sari or a traditional lehnga but choose the right fabric for your look and complete your look by donning a traditional piece of jewelry. Precious jewels are the best options to indulge in. You can wear bangles in gold, silver or glass with traditional neck-pieces and chand-bali earrings. Gold can easily be replaced with other metals such as silver, gold plated, glass, diamonds and pearls. Kundan & polki accessories are big in this season. For hair style, you can opt for beautifully shaped buns, braids or plaits which can be accessorized with hair accessories. For make-up use natural make-up base and to add some shine you can apply gold dust. You can use eye shadow and lipstick which should compliment and match with your outfit. Always remember, you should not look like a plastic doll on your wedding.
