Summer Skincare


With warmer weather right around the corner, the prospect of heading out in lighter layers with exposed skin is afoot. So, it’s time to think about in what condition the harsh winter weather and constant central heating have left your skin. If it’s feeling dry and patchy, several things will rejuvenate your skin and boost your confidence. The following tips are a few of our favorite ways to bring a fresh look and healthy glow this spring.


When you’re wrapped up in several layers all day long, overlooking how dry skin becomes is easy. Dry skin begins to look and feel dull and patchy if left for any significant amount of time. Thankfully it’s also a simple fix to remove that dull, dead skin by exfoliating regularly. A gentle facial exfoliant will take care of delicate skin without irritation, while a sugar scrub a couple of times a week will make your legs and body feel wonderfully smooth.


Once you’ve sloughed away the old dead skin, it’s vital that the new healthy skin underneath is taken care of properly. Moisturizing day and night will keep fresh layers looking dewy while protecting them from drying elements. While it may sound counterintuitive, facial oil is an excellent way to help your facial skin retain moisture and balance its natural oil production. And due to the natural ingredients in oil, your skin will benefit in ways traditional moisturizing creams can’t provide.


When daylight hours are reduced, it’s easy to push sunscreen down the list when you think about your daily skincare routine. However, as the day becomes longer, our exposure to damaging UV rays increases. Therefore, applying a Cancer Society-approved sunscreen daily becomes a vital component of everyone’s routine. The bonus of daily sunscreen use is that long-term skin retains its moisture and elasticity more effectively.

Drink Up

One of the simplest ways to keep our skin looking in top form is by avoiding dehydration. Dehydration affects many bodily functions, not least on our skin. Ensure you drink plenty of water throughout the day, so your body doesn’t pull water from the skin. Also, limit the number of sugary, alcoholic, and caffeinated beverages you consume, as they suck water out of your system quickly.

Warm Wash Only

Speaking of water, stick to warm water when washing your face, as it’s less harsh on your skin than hot water. Hot water strips the natural oils from the skin, causing dryness and unnecessary damage. Warm water will remove dead skin and dirt while leaving beneficial oils intact, and a cold splash at the end will tighten pores and invigorate the senses.

If your skin feels neglected after the long cold winter, now is the time to show it some TLC and have it looking healthy and fresh for the summer. Step up your skincare routine with regular exfoliation, moisturizing oils, and essential sunscreens. Intaking plenty of fluids, thus avoiding dehydration, ensures a solid foundation for daily skin care.

Hi, guys! Today I am here with another review. Himalaya Herbals has recently launched a body lotion that claims to be a lightweight,  soothing, refreshing and at the same time hydrating. Let’s see if the Himalaya Herbals Aloe & Cucumber Refreshing Body Lotion is actually true to its claims.

As summer is here with all its glory and intensity, we all are hunting for the most lightweight skincare and makeup products, aren’t we? Moisturizing is an important part of out skincare regime that we often tend to skip during this hot and humid weather. We might feel that we don’t need that extra moisture as the skin is always sweaty and moist, but the fact is that we still need to hydrate our skin right after cleaning our face and body. Cleansers or soaps has a tendency to remove the excess oils from our face and body, sometimes leaving them dry. Adding a layer of moisturizer will ensure your skin regains the moisture that was taken away by the soap/cleanser. Himalaya Herbals Aloe & Cucumber Refreshing Body Lotion is exactly what you are looking for this summer. This product moisturizes your skin without making it greasy.

Texture and Consistency- The texture and consistency of the Himalaya Herbals Aloe & Cucumber Refreshing Body Lotion are really suitable for the summer. It is light-weight, has a lotion-y texture, not too thick nor too runny. I love it because it easily gets absorbed into the skin and does not at all feel like I have applied anything on my body. 

Fragrance- This product has a very refreshing, summery scent to it. The fragrance is not overpowering and lasts long.


  • Sturdy packaging.
  • Light-weight.
  • Long-lasting.
  • Gets absorbed easily into the skin.
  • Refreshing fragrance.
  • Makes the skin soft and supple.
  • Apt for summers.


  • May not suit someone with very dry skin.
  • Does not contain SPF.

Overall, I liked this new launch by Himalaya Herbals. The weightlessness of this lotion makes it my favourite lotion for summers. It barely feels like a lotion when applied, thus, it does not feel greasy. I have normal to dry skin and this body lotion provides the adequate amount of hydration to my body. It makes my skin touchably soft and hydrated. The best thing about this product is that it lasts long, for almost 5-6 hours on me. It also has a mild cooling sensation to it which makes me feel fresh every time I apply it. This product is meant for all skin types but I think it won’t suffice the needs of an extremely dry skin. I wish it had some sort of SPF to it.
