New Delhi: Summer is the season of bright colours and fun dresses, of playful shades and untied hair! Summer, on the other hand, makes it difficult to enhance your appearance with makeup, as many people do.

As the temperature rises, many people suffer from skin damage. But don't worry, we've got some hacks to keep you safe during this storm!

Moisturise your skin

It may seem counter-intuitive to use moisturiser during a season when you're prone to excessive sweating, but moisturising is the most important thing to do in the summer. Sweating unclogs pores and removes all moisture from the skin. Using a generous amount of moisturising cream after bathing is the best way to keep your skin hydrated during the summer.

Primer are must

Summer primers are an absolute must. A primer, whether used in other seasons or not, is the best way to prepare and even out your skin tone and texture. Primer is the best way to combat shiny skin without clogging up your makeup. It does not clog pores and allows the skin to breathe, which is essential in the summer.

Foundation need changes

Except in the summer, cream-based foundations work very well. With the temperatures rising, it's a good idea to avoid as many creams as possible. To help the foundation last longer, use powders on top of the primer. Another advantage of powder foundations is that they keep your makeup from matting up throughout the day.

Be shimmerless this summer

In the summer, your skin will sweat regardless of the makeup you wear. There will be some sweat that gets through the products you use, even if it is only a little bit. And sweat on your skin in the summer heat will glisten – even more so when exposed to the sun. If you use makeup glimmer to add a glimmer to your skin, the sweat will mix with it and you will have too much glimmer. So, for the summer, avoiding glimmer is a good idea.

Bright colors for the season

Unlike the previous tips, which were all based on heat and practicality, this one is entirely based on fashion sense. Summer is the season for light, bright colours and nude tones. Dark colours are not recommended in the summer for two reasons: first, they attract more heat, and second, they do not flatter the shape or volume of your face. Deep, rich colours are best saved for the colder months.

Protect your lips

Before you reach for your favourite lip colour, apply a lip balm with SPF. The sun can be harsh in the summer, and your lips, like the rest of your skin, need to be protected. Yes, you'll need to reapply your lip SPF every two hours, just like you should reapply sunscreen throughout the day.
