Summer Skincare Myths Debunked: Separating Fact from Fiction

Summer Skincare Myths Debunked: Separating Fact from Fiction

As the temperatures rise and the sun shines brighter, it's important to keep your skin healthy and protected. However, with so many skincare myths floating around, even with the best skincare products, it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction. Let’s debunk some common summer skincare myths.

Myth 1: Sunscreen is only necessary on sunny days
Truth: Even on cloudy days, up to 80% of the sun's harmful UV rays can penetrate your skin. It's important to wear sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day, regardless of the weather. Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. One of the best sunscreens in India that you can try is Spawake’s UV Protect Aqua Gel with SPF 30/PA++, it’s smooth, non-sticky, and absorbs quickly into the skin.

Myth 2: You don't need to reapply sunscreen if you're not sweating
Truth: Sweat and water can remove sunscreen from your skin, so it's important to reapply every two hours, or more often if you're swimming or sweating. Don't forget to apply sunscreen to all exposed areas, including your ears, neck, and hands. If you are going to be outdoors for long, your skin will need intense protection with Spawake’s UV Cut Silky Milk with SPF 50+/PA++++. Extremely water resistant, the Spawake sunscreen is lightweight, moisturises your skin, and enables an easy absorption.

Myth 3: Oily skin doesn't need moisturiser
Truth: Even if you have oily skin, it's important to use a non-comedogenic moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated. Look for a summer cream for oily skin that is lightweight or is heavy on water, or glycerin, which helps to attract and retain moisture.

Myth 4: You only need to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes
Truth: Sunglasses are just as important as sunscreen products for protecting your eyes from the sun's harmful UV rays, but they can also help to prevent wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes. When you squint in the sun, you're more likely to develop crow's feet and other signs of aging. Look for sunglasses with 100% UV protection and wear them whenever you're outside.

In conclusion, don't believe everything you hear when it comes to building a summer skincare routine or sun block face creams. Protecting your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays, keeping it hydrated, and choosing gentle skincare products are all important for maintaining healthy, glowing skin. By debunking these common myths, you can enjoy a beautiful, healthy complexion all summer long.
