How to Keep You Skin Cool in October

Our skin can take a major beating due to the hot weather conditions. After all, it is during this second summer that our skin feels irritable and yearns for something cool. Precisely why we’re giving you 5 skin care tips for the summer that will ensure it doesn't get under your skin...

Embrace a cooling potion for your skin

The hot weather can make your skin rather dry and parched. This is when you need your skin to cool down by way of a cream that lends your skin optimum hydration. Do this by relying on the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème. This one feels absolutely cool on your skin as well as keeps your skin hydrated all day. Giving your skin the nourishment and sheen, it deserves, this gel crème contains a light glaze with mineral laden glacial water to keep your skin moisturised.

Rely on a face mist

If your face feels parched after a day out in the sun, a face mist is all you need. This is like the perfect pick-me-up for your face when you’re feeling tired. Our suggestion is to cool the spray in the fridge and then apply it on your face once you’ve returned home from an outing. All you need to do is mix equal amounts of coconut water and aloe vera juice. Follow this up by adding 1 tsp almond oil to the mix and then refrigerate.

Use an eye mask

Your eyes need some considerable amount of cooling too during this weather. This is why you must rely on a gel-based eye mask. This will help puffy eyes and also combat fatigue to a great extent.

After a hot day outside, your skin feels rather tired. Exactly why an ice massage will come of use because it not only reduces swelling and shrinks pores but also leaves your skin feeling cool and gives you a natural glow.

Hydrate your body

One of the best and most effective ways to internally keep your body cool is by drinking at least 3 litres of water every day. Drinking water will reduce body heat and in turn, cool your skin down.


The month of October can be a trying time for the skin. The humidity in the air stimulates our sweat glands that leave our skin irritated and full of impurities. Worse, when sweat comes in contact with the pollution and grime, it leads to bigger skin concerns like acne, blackheads and more. It is this time that you assume you don’t need a skin moisturiser or lotion thinking that your skin doesn’t require added hydration. But sadly, this could be the biggest skin care blunder you’re committing.

Why it is imperative to moisturise in the October heat?

Despite the weather being humid, the summer sun can dehydrate your skin. In addition, being in the AC for several hours every day also robs your skin of moisture. Surprisingly, this can be a concern for those with oily skin too—when you don’t lend your skin adequate hydration by way of a mild moisturiser or lotion, your skin overcompensates by increasing the level of oil through your sebaceous glands. Precisely why it is of utmost importance that you keep your skin moisturised no matter how hot the weather is irrespective of your skin type.

What does your skin need?

It is during this time that your skin is yearning for hydration from deep inside. Aloe vera is one of the best solutions to fighting the October heat. It not only increases the water content in your skin leaving it hydrated but also has healing properties since it can treat sunburn because it is rich in antioxidants. For those with oily or acne prone skin, the good news is that aloe vera also has anti-bacterial properties that help the skin stay away from acne and other kinds of skin concerns.

What must you opt for?

If you truly want to give your skin the goodness of aloe, reach out for the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Body Lotion. This one has a non-sticky formula that contains pure aloe, stratys-3 multi-layer moisture that deeply moisturises the skin without making the skin feel greasy. We suggest you apply this twice a day. Apply it in the morning once you’ve taken bath and then once again, before sleeping since that’s the time your skin can absorb all the necessary moisture.
