While summer brings with it a holiday vibe and sun-soaked days, it also brings with it skin woes aplenty. From sudden breakouts to acne, blackheads, pimples, and greasy skin – ugh! The list is endless! But there is a way out because here’s what you need to remember – when the weather changes, your skincare routine must change too. That’s also because new seasons mean new temperatures and new challenges. And in the warmer months, your oil-producing glands work overtime hence producing more oil.
But wait, all is not lost. There’s good news, though! Combating summer skin problems is as simple as adding a mud mask to your routine. Mud masks are a boon and work like a charm when it comes to relieving skin of toxins, oil, and impurities.
But before you invest in a mud mask, make sure you read the ingredients carefully. For scorching summers, it’s best to use mud masks that contain cooling ingredients. Here’s a list that you need to look out for:
More popularly known as Multani Mitti, this has been a favourite for centuries. It is a cooling agent and helps to exfoliate and nourish skin by absorbing oil and impurities.
Mint Oil cools, soothes, and tones the skin. Apart from this, it also has antiseptic and antibacterial properties that naturally cleanse and relax the skin and help relieve it of irritation, rashes, or inflammation.
This epitome of excellence has cold potency, which means it cools and soothes the skin, and works fabulously on skin that lacks luster in the heat, and helps with issues like pigmentation and sunburn.
This age-old beauty ingredient has powerful cooling properties. It not only hydrates and moisturizes the skin but also zaps out excess oil to keep skin acne-free and blemish-free.
