The hottest season is here! It’s tough to make past each day without feeling parched or dizzy - all thanks to the scorching heat. While you’re surviving on cold water or icecreams, have you thought about your skin? Yes, it gets severely affected by the sun too. Beyond nasty breakouts and excessive oiliness, summer can do some crazy things to your skin—like making it feel and look as dry as the desert.
It’s possible to have the fresh, dewy skin you’ve always dreamed of if you follow our words of wisdom. We promise that dull, dry skin will be a thing of the past much sooner than you thought.
Tip 1: Get 8-9 hours of sleep
A good night’s sleep is the best remedy for everything! Yes, it is indeed the best time that your skin cells repair and rejuvenate themselves. It helps in boosting collagen and further, firms up your skin. So, we suggest you indulge in your beauty sleep. But, here’s a tip! Don’t forget to use a humidifier in conjunction with your air conditioner to keep moisture in the air and on your skin.
Tip 2: Limit showers to 5 to 10 minutes, and ditch hot showers
For many, nothing is more relaxing than a soothing soak in the tub during the winter season. It can help in relieving stress, inducing sleep, and help clear nasal congestion. Although your tub time may feel like a luxury, if you bathe for a longer period of time with hot water during summers, you can end up damaging keratin skin cells, due to which you may have to face skin problems like rashes, dryness, or itching. All this will ultimately lead to dehydrated, dull skin.
Tip 3: Drink enough water.
We know this may sound obvious but it definitely needs a reminder. You need to drink more water in the summer. Heat can easily drain you in no time and you need hydration to keep going. Dehydration soon starts showing on your skin too. It can cause irritation, acne, and redness. Drink about two liters of water daily.
Tip 4: Limit coffee, alcohol & smoking.
Healthy skin is a reflection of your lifestyle! These unhealthy habits may soak water from your body and further cause dryness which starts showing off on your skin immediately.
Tip 5: Switch to a gentle cleanser.
In this hot weather, it is important to not overdry your skin as it is already deprived of moisture, to an extent. You do not want to make that worse. Opt for gentle cleansers that do the job and nourish your skin at the same time.

Tip 6: Eat a varied diet that’s rich in essential fatty acids.
Summer brings with it fresh fruits and vegetables that are a delight to devour during the intense heat, and they come with the added benefit of being healthy for your body and skin.
Tip 7: Use products containing hyaluronic acid, lipids, and fatty acids.
As summers come knocking, it’s time to combat the heat with our light, summer dresses. All the same, we must also do away with heavy-weight and greasy creams meant for winters and switch to products that are adept at keeping our skin fresh and hydrated through intense heat. As we look for light-weight, quick-absorbent formulas that act as a breath of fresh air in the parching summers, Hyaluronic Acid is a quintessential ingredient that makes them so perfect for summers.
This wonder ingredient is naturally produced by our skin cells to maintain moisture levels. It has a unique capacity to attract and hold up to 1000 times its weight in moisture. Harmful UV rays from the sun break down the sensitive Hyaluronic Acid that is naturally present on our skin and less. But don’t worry! Because all you need to do is add our newly-launched Ultra Hydrate Multipurpose Gel with Hyaluronic Acid to instantly infuse oodles of moisture to the skin to maintain that smooth, healthy, and radiantly hydrated skin!
Tip 8: Use a hydrating all-day gel.
Switch to light, gel moisturizers in summers. Gel-based moisturizers are non-sticky, absorb into the skin in no time and get the job done. RAS Luxury Oil’s new launch - Ultra Hydrate Multipurpose Gel is a fabulous pick for the summer. It locks in hydration for up to 24+ hours and combats any dryness or irritation.
