Home remedies for healthy skin and hair during summers

Frizzy locks and sun-parched skin are common after-effects of a sun-filled vacation period. Frizzy texture, split ends and a dehydrated mane- thanks to UV exposure and excessive heat. Dull, dry and lacklustre skin due to a build-up of sunscreen over the summer is another problem we have to tackle. The reason for this is that summer heat causes a lot of sweat making the pores open to release sweat. Irritation and itching is accompanied by this problem.

The reason as to why we lose hair and get parched skin during summers is because we sweat a lot; the pores on the surface of the skin are opened to release sweat. Irritation and itching on the scalp and skin usually result for this reason. You would feel like scratching your head and this would only compound your problems.

You can avoid these hair loss and skin problems in summers by the following these home remedies.


Drink water

Drink lot of water during summers for the obvious reason that summer heat makes you lose your moisture. This will keep your skin moisturised and therefore, the hair roots would be stronger.



Exfoliate your skin during summers, if not throughout the year. This is because the problem of dead skin prevents blood circulation throughout the body. You can buy a cosmetic scrub from the market or make one at home. Use 4-5 tablepoons of gram flour, six drops of rose water, pinch of turmeric and yoghurt or milk. Make a paste of all these ingredients and use that for exfoliating your face. End this skin treatment with a facemask or moisturiser.
