Summer skincare: Here what you should do to prevent sunburn
“First things first, change your diet. Eat a lot of antioxidants in your food. Lots of fruits, lots of vegetables, amla, these are all the things that will help you in your diet improve your skin resilience to the sun rays,” she said.
Next, she suggested a few supplements to add to this skin care routine. “Supplements like Heliocare for example have vegetal extracts that help improve your resilience to the sun.” Dr Kiran emphasized on the usage of sunblock. She says, “2 tablespoons, every four hours, you apply it whether you are indoors or not.” In the Instagram caption, Dr Kiran added, “Stay home, be healthy and eat well. This can be our time for rest and rejuvenation.”
Earlier, Dr Kiran shared some tips on consuming the right kind of summer food. She advised to keep the consumption of mangoes in the summer under check. According to the dermatologist, some may experience acne due to mangoes and hence should be eaten in moderation.
She also recommended staying away from spicy food as they trigger acne. Apart from these hacks, she added that almond milk in a fruit shake is a better option in order to get more nutrients.
