The approach of summer triggers the onset of new skincare concerns. With climate change, you need to change not only your wardrobe but also your skincare products. Many feel that caring for your skin during summer is easier than winter when the weather is cold and arid, making your skin dry, rough and flaky. But that doesn't mean your skincare regime can take a back seat in summer. Using the right skincare product for your skin type and skin concern can prove beneficial in flaunting healthy, hydrated and glowing skin. Let's get the scoop on getting well-hydrated and glowing skin this summer.

How To Keep Your Skin Hydrated & Glowing This Summer?

Making minor changes in your skincare regime will prove beneficial in keeping your skin in optimal health. A well-moisturized and glowing skin is the sign of a healthy and problem-free skin. Consider these pro tips to keep your skin hydrated and achieve that extra glow this summer.

1. Keep Your Skin Clean

Face wash

Wash your face regularly with a face wash or a facial cleanser. But your regular face wash can strip the natural oil from the skin, causing itchy and irritated skin. Look for a hydrating facial cleanser which gently cleanses your skin without stripping the natural oil? ThriveCo's Hydrating Foaming Facial Cleanser can benefit your regular skincare regime by gently cleaning the skin without disturbing its moisture balance. It's your first step towards achieving healthy, glowing skin.

2. Don’t Skip Exfoliation


The dry summer weather can affect your skin health, making it look dry, rough and flaky. Oil buildup, accumulation of debris and dead skin cells can make your skin appear dry, rough and dull. Exfoliation is recommended to keep it healthy and radiant. Instead of physical exfoliants, experts recommend using chemical exfoliants such as AHA and BHA to exfoliate, as they are mild on your skin. We recommend using ThriveCo's Exfoliating Foaming Facial Cleanser with AHA+BHA, which clarifies the skin and buffs away all the dead skin cells from the skin surface. But remember, over-exfoliation can cause skin irritation, so exfoliate your skin once or twice a week, depending on your skin type.

3. Apply A Toner


Large open pores on the skin are a common skincare concern during summers. They can lead to breakouts. Investing in a good facial toner helps with reducing the appearance of large open pores and aids in better absorption of serums and moisturizers. ThriveCo's Pore Minimizing Ultimate Toner helps minimize large open pores and unplugs the gunk from the pores, clarifying the skin from within.

4. Apply Hydrating Facial Serum

6. Avoid Heavy MakeUp

Heavy MakeUp

Applying heavy makeup in summer can clog the skin's pores, resulting in breakouts. Opt for minimal makeup to allow your skin to breathe. Also, try to use mineral-based makeup products instead of cream-based ones.

7. Use A Hydrating Face Mask

Face Mask

During summer, your skin tends to get dehydrated, so a regular supply of hydration is required to keep your skin in optimal health. Experts recommend using a hydrating face mask or a facial mist to boost the skin's hydration level. Hydrating face mask should be applied on a clean face, preferably at night before going to bed. Facial mist can be used as and when required.

8. Don't Forget Your Lips, Under Eyes & Feet

Under Eyes

Exfoliate your lips and apply a lip balm with SPF to protect your lips from chapping and darkening. Wear sunglasses when going out in the sun to protect your under-eye area, as the skin under your eyes is very delicate and prone to dryness. Scrub your feet regularly and apply a moisturizer with an SPF of 30 or above to protect your feet from sun tan.

9. Keep Your Body Hydrated

Body Hydrated

Your diet and lifestyle can have a huge impact on your skin. Proper hydration and nourishment can improve the appearance of the skin. Drink 2-3 litres of water daily to keep your body hydrated and flush out all the toxins from the body. Consume lots of fresh fruits and veggies rich in antioxidants to improve the texture of your skin.

Harsh summer weather can wreak havoc on your skin, but the best part is that a tailored skincare regime and using the right skincare product can help restore the skin's moisture balance, giving you healthy and glowing skin.
