With summer comes melting makeup, smeared eyeliner, and super-sticky hair hence it is important to give proper hydration and relaxation to your skin and hair to be easy breezy as the temperature soars up.

Sushma Khan, National Creative Director-Makeup, Lakmé Salon and TIGI Educator Audrey D’Souza have listed the summer switch that must be made your regime to make your makeup last long and hair stay strong.

* For make-up

* Go light: Through the summer ‘less is more’ should be your mantra. The lesser the products you use, the lighter your skin will feel and make-up will not feel heavy. The summer is known to make your skin sweaty and layering more make-up on the face will add to it. Hence, it is highly recommended to use products with anti-bacterial properties.

Replace your foundation with a concealer to hide imperfections and feel light. Products with SPF of 30++ at least are a must. BB Creams are also a great option as it is an emulation of moisturizer and tinted foundation. Use more of light water-based products to make it feel light during summer, heat and sweating. Cut down your make up products to less than half and use the bare minimum.

* Multitask with your makeup : Invest in a product that does it all – for the lips, lids, and cheeks. It would cut down your routine to half and help keep your bag light. Simply choose from a range of summery bright or light lip and cheek tints as it will add a healthy glow with minimalistic colour.

* Switch to waterproof: Invest in waterproof eyelines, mascaras and eye pencils. With the temperatures rising high, one tends to rub and wipe of the face regularly. This might, at times, end up in either smudging or fading. Choose between a highly or lightly pigmented waterproof eye products so that the look is as fresh as it was in the morning.

* Shortcut to volume: Wash and condition your hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner to combat the limp and sticky hair. Prep your hair with volumizing lotion before the blow dry to give your hair volume for days. Brush backwards and say hello to 3x more volume!

* Beach waves for days: Boho-inspired beachy waves are the ultimate summer hair-do. Apply curling mousse on wet hair and scrunch it up in a bun. Use tongs to achieve the wavy look. You can also opt for dry shampoos to fight the stickiness on your third hair days. It also adds to the beachy texture.   BOLLYWOODCOUNTRY

With pollution comes the requirement to be extra cautious of your hair as the chances of it getting dull gets higher. Make sure you treat it well.

Pankaj Chaturvedi, Director, Senior Consultant Dermatologist and Hair Transplant Surgeon at MedLinks list down some steps to get rid of frizzy hair due to pollution.

* Take cover, wear a hat: Always carry with you a hat or hairband to protect your hair from damage. If you really can’t help being in a really polluted area, keep your hair covered if you can, (or tie it back).

* Wash your hair regularly: Fortunately, pollutants sit on the outside of the cuticle and so can easily be washed off, so in order to reduce the microbial content of the scalp and make it less itchy and prone to flaking, we recommends regular shampooing. For men, alternate days to everyday and for women twice or thrice in a week.

* Adjust your styling routine: Hair that has been exposed to excessive amounts of air pollution becomes damaged, feeling brittle and making breakage and split ends more likely. Keep this in mind when using heat from a straighter, curling iron or hair dryer. Minimize the amount of heat you use and always use a heat protecting product.

* Add back hydration: When in doubt, hydrate. It’s a good rule for your health and your hair. Jojoba oil is one good ingredient to look for as it both moisturises and strengthens the hair’s natural hydro-lipid layer, which coats the hair to help keep it hydrated.

* Deep condition: Start a deep conditioning routine weekly. Deep conditioners are used to repair damaged hair, penetrating deep into the hair hydrating and repairing it.

Chiranjiv Chhabra, Director and Consultant Dermatologist at Skin Alive Dermatology and Aesthetics also has some inputs to share:

* Oil your hair regularly and properly: You should regularly oil your hair as it nourishes the scalp, cleanses dirt and dead cells. Almond oil is an effective hair cleanser, keeps hair healthy and facilitates hair growth as it is rich in Vitamin E.

* Try some do it yourself hair masks

* Ingredients: 1 Banana (it nourishes and repairs hair); Whole milk (moisturizer); Cocoa Powder – 2 teaspoons (moisturizes)

Method:

* Step 1- Peel and break the banana and put them into the bowl, mash the whole banana with a fork to get a fine pulp.

* Step 2 – Add enough whole milk to thin out the banana mixture. Add two teaspoons of cocoa powder, wisk all the ingredients in the bowl to form a nice smooth paste.

* Step 4 – Wash your hair with a cleansing mild shampoo and let air dry your hair.

* Usage of right shampoo and conditioner: You should always use a shampoo according to your hair type. If your hair is oily and greasy then you should use oil-free shampoos which will make your hair less oily. For dry hair, you should always use a conditioner or a moisturizing shampoo to protect your hair from frizzing up.

* Add extra protection for your hair: You should keep your scalp well protected in terms of both physical protection and nourishment before stepping out of the house. You can use a sunscreen serum or spray to protect your hair from harmful UV rays and toxins. (IANS)
