Summer is not an easy season to deal with, especially in the northern part of the country. The scorching heat brings with it a range of beauty and skin issues like peeling, sunburn, rashes, so on and so forth. While it is important to include the right kinds of food to keep your skin healthy, you need to follow a beauty regimen too if you don't want this season to take a toll on your skin. Instead of relying on commercially available, chemical-induced products, include natural remedies to keep your skin healthy and supple. Here are five home remedies to help you fight different summer skin issues.

Aloe vera for prickly heat rashes

This is a problem that occurs commonly due to the friction caused by sweat and moisture in the creases of your skin. Such rashes, which come with a burning sensation, can be very irritating. One of the major culprits behind this skin care issue could be synthetic clothes. It's best to resort to cotton, especially during the summer. However, the first thing you need to do to heal your ailing skin is splashing some cold water on the affected area. You need to leave it open for some time. This health condition is also a result of wearing synthetic clothes. Applying aloe vera gel will also soothe your skin.

Honey for wrinkles

The strong and harmful UV rays of the sun may cause thickening and dryness of the skin leading to wrinkles and premature ageing. If you do not use a sunscreen, it is time you switch to honey. Being an excellent source of minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, honey protects your skin from age-related damages.

How to

  • Apply a thick layer of raw honey on the affected area.
