With the sun blazing down on your neck, and sweat making your shirt stick -- one cannot help but feel uneasy in summer. Dr Rashmi Ravindra, consultant Cosmetologist and Dermatologist, BGS Global Hospitals tells us how to maintain hygiene and keep clean in this hot weather.
Smelling nice is the most basic and most difficult thing in this season.
Taking a bath twice daily will go a long way in making you feel fresh. Try to change your garments each time. Spray a deodorant over the clothes and not directly on the skin, as that may cause an allergy or irritation.
. Keeping your feet sweat free and stink free is a must in summer.
Wear cotton socks and use a clean pair everyday. You can also soak your feet in water for 5 minutes.
Adding a few crystals of alum will keep your feet clean and germ free.
The heat causes eye infections. To keep your eyes protected, always step out with a pair of sunglasses or an umbrella.
Summer is the time when you can flaunt all your cotton clothes. The material absorbs sweat easily and also keeps the skin breathing. Wear lighter hues and avoid dark coloured clothes.
After a bath, use dusting powders for areas like the thighs and axilla as this helps in absorbing the sweat and also from sweat stains.
Sunscreen is very essential for your skin in summer. Apply it half an hour before stepping out.
Keep yourself hydrated as the sun can cause dehydration. Drink juices, water and avoid fizzy drinks.
