The blazing summers are upon us in all their glory. And with the hot weather comes summer skin that’s dry, parched, pigmented, and acne-prone. Just going out in the sun becomes a burdensome chore. And you know what is worse? Not making a skincare routine that according to our skin type when our skin is literally baking. A perfect Summertime skincare routine will not only protect you from dry and parched skin but also will keep your skin looking hydrated and plump. But don’t cha worry, simply following a CTM routine will bring your skin a glow that you are going to surely love.
Step 1: Start Your Mornings With A Lightweight Cleanser During Summers:
Living in Dubai means your skin will go through many ups and downs, all thanks to blazing sunlight almost 24/7. Free your skin from impurities with a gentle cleanser in the morning. Period! It is basically your best defense mechanism against grime, dirt, oil, makeup, and any impurities that get accumulated in the skin. So, start your morning with a lightweight cleanser, and help your skin breathe better.
• For Oily Skin: A Gel-based cleanser Should be chosen.
• For Dry Skin: A cleansing milk or foam cleanser is a better option.
Dubai peeps can get a hold of Cetaphil gentle cleanser from Pharmacies around here. Also, the Ordinary skincare line has got some amazing cleansers, cheap and effective. Korean cleansers are another great option too.
Step 2: Post-Cleansing Use A Toner To Help Set The Stage For Rest Of Skincare Regimen:
A toner makes sure to remove any extra layer of impurities, makeup, grime, oil, and dirt that was left post- cleansing. There are many contradictory views on the importance of using a toner but it does wonder if used consistently. It tightens the pores, restores your skin’s pH level, smooths skin by refining rough patches, and improves skin tone. So many benefits!! Some of the ingredients that any good toner should contain are
• Tea Tree oil
• Green tree
• Aloe vera
• Rosewater oil
• Witch Hazel
Some of the best facial toners available in Dubai are Neutrogena Alcohol-free toner, Pixi glow tonic, and ordinary Glycolic Acid toner. Just take a cotton ball and swipe it across the face every morning post-cleansing
Step 3: Lock In Hydration And Smoothness With A Fab Moisturiser:
Nopes!! that plump face isn’t an illusion!! That’s right! Totally achievable. Do you know why 8 glasses of water have been advised by health practitioners for ages? To remove toxins from the body and for ultimate hydration. Goes the same for a moisturizing cream. Our skin repairs itself at night when you give it some rest. By using a good moisturizer cream, you help your skin to repair itself faster and regain its elasticity and glow again.
Our skin tends to get all parched and dry in UAE, all thanks to the blazing sun and constant air conditioning environment. With a good moisturizing cream, this is going to tackle skin issues. Moisturising creams by Cera V, dramatically different moisturizing lotion by Clinique, Neutrogena Hydro boost gel are some of the moisturizing creams easily available in UAE.
