Perfect skin for summer

By Gurneev Panesar, Contributor

This is dedicated to all you gals. For a woman, having good skin is an important asset, not only for appearance but also for confidence. Yes there is makeup, but walking around with a bare beautiful face is the best feeling in the world (well, for me). Going through college or university with acne or excessive breakouts can be a girl’s worst nightmare. Fear not. I have some suggestions, which depend on your skin type: dry, normal, or oily.

Dry skin: Your skin will feel slightly papery, dry, and dull. It might also feel tight, flakey, and rough. Try using a rich moisturizer that will protect your skin from harsh environmental factors, while making it supple and soft. It will also provide hydration that will leave your skin smooth and velvety. Your skin is most likely suffering from dehydration. Steer clear of juices and soda, and substitute towards fresh fruits and lots of water.

Normal/combination skin:  Your skin feels vibrant, elastic, and supple. It is the least problematic type. However, most of us have combination skin, which has dry or oily patches (e.g. the forehead, nose and chin, or T-zone). The oily areas can be dealt with by cleansing, and dry areas with rich moisturizers.

Oily Skin: Your skin is shiny, greasy and coarse. Sometimes pores are large and visible, and are prone to break out into acne or pimples. To deal with this type, wash your face with a mild cleanser twice daily and limit sugary and processed foods in your diet. Hydrate your body frequently by drinking a lot of water.

And finally, no matter what your skin type, wear sunscreen. Summer is almost here and we are all crazy about getting our tan on, but use sunscreen. The sun can damage your skin and, over time, cause wrinkles. Avoid staying out in direct sunlight during peak hours. Use an SPF between 30 and 50 depending on the sun intensity and your natural skin colour.

  5. Along with the car sales, the Japanese used car sellers also supply the dismantled
    parts of the vehicles in cube containers of size 20ft or 40 ft.
    The turbo 4-banger in the Volkswagon GTI Mk5 is fairly unique among such engines in that it produces huge
    amounts of torque at a relatively low number of RPMs.
    This is a rear-wheel drive car, and that means that unlike front-wheel drive cars – which typically can’t
    be used much beyond B class – the MR2 can be upgraded
    all the way to the top of A – although going into S class is probably a bit much.

  6. Everything published was actually very reasonable. However, think
    about this, what if you added a little content? I ain’t suggesting your content is not good, but suppose you
    added a post title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean The Other
    Press | Perfect skin for summer is a little boring. You should peek at
    Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to
    grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
