The Ultimate Summer Skincare Routine: 2 Face Packs for Dry Skin
If there's one thing to do justice to your warm-weather skin care routine, it's a face pack for dry summer skin. Even though heat usually brings on sweat and isn't as harsh on dry skin - as in winter - it can still cause problems for sensitive skin and develop cracks and fine lines. UV sun rays and drying with dirt and pollutants in the air can cause skin to become flaky, making your face look dull and irritated. Sunscreen acts as protection, and helps repair sun damage, but some pre-preparation before heading out will ensure your skin maintains its glow.

Dry skin leads to dehydration and a damaged skin barrier. This makes your skin vulnerable to pollution and UV rays during summer, leading to skin irritation, sun-damaged skin and premature skin aging. Making your own face pack with natural ingredients for summer dry skin can help in skin hydration and skin repair and provide anti-aging skin effects in the long run. You can always opt for simple ingredients like papaya, yogurt, aloe vera, or cucumber to remove dead cells and retain moisture in your skin. You can also opt for a traditional sandalwood face mask that can cool the skin during the summer heat. All you need to do is apply the face mask of your choice for 20 minutes and see the results over time.
