From scorching heat to too much sun exposure, your skin goes through a lot during the summer season, which is why it is essential to hydrate the skin. Dryness, heat rashes, and acne are common problems in this hot season. Most people tend to ignore taking care of skin in the summer as their skin is not as dry or itchy as in the winter. However, our skin needs attention to keep skin problems at bay, even in summers. 

How to keep my skin always hydrated?

During summers, keeping your skin hydrated is a must or it can become dry or flaky. The below tips will help you overcome skin problems and make way for that healthy, glowing skin.

  1.   Exfoliation 

Exfoliation is a very important step for a proper skincare routine, especially in summer to take off the oil and sunscreen. You need to exfoliate your facial skin at least twice a week to help get rid of all the dead cells accumulated on your skin. After cleansing, just exfoliate your face and voila! Soft, supple, and glowing skin.

Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Scrub is a great choice for your exfoliation needs. It has extra-fine particles that will make the whole exfoliation process easier.

  1.   Moisturizer

Moisturizing is a must in summer! Yes, you read that right. Many people make the mistake of avoiding moisturizer as the skin is already greasy in this season. But you should not ignore this important step, especially if you stay mostly in AC. Artificially de-humidified air can dry your skin, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Make sure you get an oil-free moisturizer that contains an SPF of 30 or more.

  1.   Drink water

We all know this, right? Lack of water can make your skin dry, firm and flaky. So, drink 7-8 glasses of water every day. If you are bored drinking the plain old water, then just jazz it up by adding some lemon juice or mint leaves or some cut fruits and ta-da, your flavored water is ready.

  1.   Proper diet

Include fresh fruits, fruits with high water content, and green leafy veggies in your diet. This will not only keep skin hydrated but will also give you a bright looking skin.

  1.   Sunscreen 

Using a good sunscreen is a must. Sun exposure can lead to wrinkles, premature aging, pigmentation, sunburns, and even skin cancer. Do not skip this step. Even if you want to apply makeup, you can do it after you apply your sunscreen. Always make sure to apply your sunscreen at least 30 minutes before stepping out. The benefits of sunscreen reduce when it gets washed off or not applied frequently. So, don’t forget to reapply it every 3-4 hours. In fact, it should be applied throughout the year, even during cloudy seasons and winters. 

  1.   Always carry a good face mist

During summers, always carry a face mist. It comes in handy when you need some cooling down and instantly hydrates your skin. It also has a light emollient effect and suppresses the effects of saltwater, chlorine, and tap water. We recommend that you use the Pilgrim White Lotus Natural Face Mist & Toner. It is an alcohol-free formula that will hydrate your skin and restore your skin to its youthful luster.

  1. Change your skincare products

Look out for products with natural ingredients and skin nutrition as they tend to neutralize free radicals from pollution and sun exposure in the summer seasons. Avoid using a creamy cleanser and better, switch to a sulfate-free face wash.

As teenagers, many of us had skin pore generating habits like popping pimples, often without realizing what we were actually doing to our skin. Pores can be really annoying and embarrassing for both men and women. The skin of the face is more sensitive than the body. So, even the most innocent daily activity can cause unwanted breakouts. 

What are the bad habits that lead to clogged pores?

The pores clogged with dead skin cells and sebum can develop into pimples. Here are 9 habits that might be clogging your pores. If you have any of these habits, change it immediately, and let your skin breathe.

  1.   Not washing your face at night

It is hard to think about your skin when you are exhausted. Not washing your face at night can have some severe consequences. Washing your face not only removes makeup but the dirt and dust that your face accumulated throughout the day.

 Use Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Wash to clean your face every day. It will clean your skin and calm it down while ensuring that the protective barrier of the skin is not sloughed off.

  1.   Not exfoliating

Dead skin cells that are present on our skin are one of the main reasons behind clogged pores. You don’t need to exfoliate daily, but to get rid of the outer dead layer of the skin, it is important to exfoliate once or twice a week. Use a gentle face scrub to exfoliate your skin. 

  1.   Not taking a bath after a workout

Working out does not cause breakouts, but all that sweat after a workout gets mixed with dirt and sits on your skin. The bacteria on the skin start to proliferate because of all the perspiration left behind. This causes rashes and breakouts.

  1.   Touching your face

Many people have the habit of touching their face too often. By constantly touching your face, you are transferring the many allergens, oils, and bacteria from your hands to your skin, which can clog pores. Dermatologist recommends keeping your hands off your face as much as possible or better use sanitizer before touching your face to prevent the breakouts.

  1.   Talking on the phone

If you spend a lot of time on your phone and worry about your acne as well, then your phone is to be blamed. Phones are indeed filthy collecting bacteria, oil, and makeup and can transfer dirt and bacteria on your face. Wipe your phone every day or better use headphones to talk. 

  1.   Not washing your bed sheets

If you are one of the people who don’t mind sleeping on dirty pillowcases and bed sheets, your skin might be facing some tough times. Bed sheets and pillows can easily harbor an accumulation of dirt and oil, transferring that all to your skin at night, leading to clogged pores.  

  1.   Sleeping with Makeup on

Makeup resting on your face covers the skin and does not give it any room to breathe, which means allowing pollutants, oil, and makeup to settle into your pores while you sleep. It coats your skin and leads to clogging of the pores. So, before going to bed, get rid of all the makeup residue. Also, avoid using expired makeup products. It is a good practice to use Pilgrim Vitamin C Night Serum before going to sleep. This is a non-greasy formula for fighting off premature aging and environmental damage.

  1.   Not washing makeup brushes

Washing your face is the basic step in getting rid of the clogged pores and washing your brushes is the second. Not cleaning your makeup brushes can lead to bacteria build-up. This causes irritation of the skin and breakouts as bacteria continue to grow on your skin.

  1.   Tanning

People think that tanned skin looks better and helps with the clogged pores. In reality, it is one of the reasons for clogged pores. During Sun tanning, the skin tissues get damaged. So, sun tanning actually leads to more clogged pores. The pores become larger and saggier.

You can try some topical creams containing natural ingredients. Remember to always use non-comedogenic moisturizing cream and sunscreen before going out.

Having a naturally glowing skin is every girl’s dream. To achieve this, you should take care of your skin properly and prevent it from damage that is caused due to various external factors such as pollution, sunrays, dirt, etc. Along with this, you should also be careful while using products on your face. There might be some ingredients that do not suit your skin and may cause an allergic reaction. You should also only use products that suit your skin type to get the maximum benefit out of the products. Here are some ways that you can achieve naturally radiant and glowing skin:

  • Formulate and follow a proper skincare routine

     – Having a proper skincare routine and following it religiously is an important step to achieve naturally healthy and radiant skin. You should formulate a skincare routine according to the time and products you have and then make sure to follow it every day. This will help your skin immensely and keep it clean and nourished.  

Clean your face twice a day  

A clean face is the first step of any skincare routine. To achieve glowing and radiant skin, you should clean your face using a mild and suitable face wash at least twice a day. Washing your face once in the morning and once in the evening will help keep your face clean of any unwanted dust particles, dirt, and excess sebum. Along with this, a face wash will also help prepare your skin for the next steps of your skincare routine.

A mild and specialized face wash such as the Pilgrim Volcanic Ash Face Wash with Yugdugu and White Lotus would be a great addition to your skincare routine. This gentle and effective face wash will help you refresh your face.

  • The ingredients present in the face wash will gently pull out any unwanted particles such as dirt, dust, pollution, grime, and excess sebum without stripping off the essential oil and moisture of your skin. Using this face wash will help you get naturally radiant and glowing skin.
  • Exfoliation should be done at least once a week

     – Our skin continuously makes new cells and sheds the old and dead skin cells. Exfoliation is required to remove these dead skin cells from the skin and get a naturally healthy complexion. Using an exfoliation scrub once a week can help you clean up your face and remove the dead skin cells. Once the dead skin cells are removed, your skin will look healthy and radiant. We recommend you use the Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Scrub with Yugdugu and White Lotus. This gentle exfoliating scrub will detoxify and deep clean your pores without damaging your skin. Exfoliating with this scrub will also help in removing tan, whiteheads, and blackheads. The ultra-fine particles in this scrub will ensure that you get soft and supple skin after exfoliation.  
  • Apply sunscreen every time you step out of the house – 

    Sunscreen is essential whenever you step out of the house. The sunrays could damage your skin and make it look dull and unappealing. Moreover, damage from the UV rays can cause permanent damage to your skin. Therefore, you should use a sunscreen with high levels of SPF to protect your skin from the harmful sun rays. The Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream SPF 50 with Camellia and Yugdugu helps improve complexion, reduce wrinkles and fine lines and also deals with pigmentation caused by sun rays. It also helps in preventing the formation of age spots and hyperpigmentation. 
  • Moisturize your skin even if you have oily skin – 

    Moisturizing and hydration are very important for your skin. Dried and dehydrated skin will make your skin look dull and lifeless. Using a moisturizer will help your skin remain hydrated and in turn, will heal your skin. Lack of moisturizing can make your skin super dry or excessively oil, both of which can lead to other severe problems such as acne, large pores, cracked skin, etc. Properly moisturized skin will have a natural glow and will look radiant.

Use products that suit your skin type and address your skin issues – 

Using products that suit your skin type and address your skin issues is important. Wrong products can do more harm than good. If you have oily skin, you should focus more on gel-based products and products made specifically for oily skin. Similarly, people with dry skin should use deeply hydrating products to maintain healthy and naturally radiant skin.

With the temperatures soaring over 40 degrees, it is essential to follow summer beauty tips. Summer can be extremely harmful to your skin with grime, dirt, and makeup build-up. It is essential to take extra care of your skin during the endless summer days. You need to pay attention to your skincare routine and opt for fresher and lighter essentials for reviving your dull and fatigued skin. 

Sunscreen

This is an essential skincare product regardless of the season. However, during the summer, there are chances that you will be out in the sun for longer. So, you must invest in a good sunscreen.

Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream SPF 50 is a great choice in that regard! It protects your skin from the damaging sun rays and prevents sun/age spots. Not just your face, you should apply sunscreen on your body too. 

Tone down the makeup

Most of the time, makeup doesn’t combine well with sweaty skin. The foundation will start moving around and your eyelashes and eyebrows melt off, which is not a good look for you. So, during the hot summer days, it isn’t a bad idea to go naked with makeup. You can use a tinted moisturizer instead of a foundation that will eventually appear cakey. You are likely to have that extra glow during the summer anyway! 

Other makeup products you can consider leaving out include blush and highlighter. Due to the sweat, you will look shinier than usual. So, adding more shine to your skin is not needed. However, it can be a great idea to add a lip gloss. Just make sure you use a hydrating one since your lips can dry out due to the sun. 

Face mist

During the hot season, nothing can be more refreshing than a face mist. If you are not aware of the potentials of a face mist, you must know that it is much more than just water in a fancy bottle. The most important job it does is refreshing and hydrating your skin. It is a perfect hydration solution when the sun dries out your skin. Even if you have oily skin, there is nothing to worry about. You can easily use face mists on oily skin. Get the Pilgrim White Lotus Natural Face Mist & Toner with Camellia & Witch Hazel. It comes with extra hydrating ingredients and keeps your skin moisturized throughout the day. 

If you are careful in choosing your face mist, it helps control oil production. The most amazing thing about face mists is that they are multifunctional. 

Furthermore, a face mist doesn’t mess up your makeup. Instead, it can even be used as a setting spray. You can get even more out of this product if you are wise with its use in your makeup routine. For instance, you can use it between your makeup and moisturizing. It will help you seal the moisturizer while also creating a dewy look. Not just that, face mists can also be used as makeup primers. An essential product for summer!

Hair Accessories

If you have long hair, summer can be particularly tricky. Sweaty neck and hair do not give you a good feeling. Thankfully, you have options to manage things. Hair clips and headbands come in very handy during the summer season and they must be one of the essentials. Furthermore, you can even experiment and give yourself a new look!

Give yourself a glow

Glamming up your skin will make you more confident to show off your skin during summer. There are many options for giving your skin that additional glow. You can even use fake tan, or a body lotion that has fake tanner, to make your skin look more tanned. If you are happy with the color of your skin but want to make it glow more, you can use a body shimmer. Not just that, you need to keep your skin hydrated during summer. So, a body lotion, preferably with Aloe Vera, after a shower is one of the essential summer beauty tips. It allows your tan to stay longer even after summer. 

Protect your skin and hair

It goes without saying that you need to be more careful about protecting your skin during summer. Similarly, your hair needs additional care during the hot season. The importance of a good skin and hair care routine cannot be emphasized enough. You need to take the necessary steps to protect your skin and hair from the danger of the sun. In that regard, it is best to use natural products and avoid products with harmful ingredients. Skin and hair care aren’t just limited to when you are out in the sun. Aftercare is just as important. Take time to give your skin and hair the extra love it needs!

When it comes to tips for skincare, you are usually concerned about your face and tend to neglect other areas like your neck and chest. Signs of aging such as uneven skin tone, sagging and crepey skin are likely to show up on body parts that are not protected from the sun. Given how delicate your neck and chest are, they are bound to show the first signs of sun damage and wrinkles if you don’t take proper care. 

Do you need a separate cream for your chest and neck?

In an attempt to keep your neck and chest looking young for as long as possible, you might be tempted to buy a separate décolletage or neck cream. However, more often than not, buying a separate product is not necessary.

The biggest reason why separate creams are not necessary is that if you use a well-formulated product on your face, it will work just as well on your neck and chest too.

Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream is an excellent all-round product you can use. Skin requires the same kinds of beneficial ingredients, be it on your face or any other part of your body. These include skin-replenishing ingredients, skin-restoring ingredients, soothing agents, antioxidants, and sunscreen when you’re out in the sun to delay the signs of aging skin from appearing. 

Skincare tips for your chest and neck

Here are a few things you can do to keep your chest and neck appearing healthier and younger:

  • Be consistent:

    Make sure you use the same skincare products on your neck and chest like the ones you use on your face. You should only use separate products for these areas if you are addressing different skin concerns like dry skin or acne. 
  • Stay protected:

    Most clothing exposes your chest and neck to the sun, which is why they are particularly vulnerable areas. Make sure you protect your exposed chest and neck with regular application of a sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater. This single step is the best one you can take for keeping this particular area of your skin looking smooth and youthful for many years. Furthermore, if you use sunscreen and take other sun protection measures, you also reduce the chances of developing skin cancer. 
  • Even out your skin:

    If there are patches of uneven skin tone in your neck and chest, a great way of addressing it would be with a skin brightening product. You can use the same product you use on your face. 
  • Anti-aging boosters

    : You may consider adding these skin boosters to your skincare routine. The best products are the ones that contain potent anti-aging ingredients. You can apply them directly to your skin or mix it with a serum or a moisturizer. 
  • Moisturize your skin:

    While it may seem one of the obvious tips for skincare, a lot of women may forget that the neck has to be moisturized regularly, just like the face. There is no need for a special cream. Your regular face cream will be sufficient for your neck as well. 
  • Gentle and regular exfoliation:

    Buffing mildly helps in triggering collagen production of your skin, keeping your neck and chest skin even-toned and smooth. However, you shouldn’t be too aggressive, as it can result in redness and irritation. 
  • Limit the use of perfume:

    Perfumes contain different aromatizers and alcohol, which can dry your skin out and affect its elasticity. So, make sure you don’t overuse your perfume in these areas. 
  • Avoid heavy jewelry:

    The gentle skin on the neck can get irritated by heavy pendants and necklaces. You should only wear them on special occasions. For the same reason, you should also avoid wearing synthetic turtleneck sweaters with tight collars. 
  • Keep your posture in check:

    Bad posture can cause neck pain and headaches. Not only that, constant bending results in the appearance of wrinkles, which aren’t easy to get rid of. 

The most frustrating thing about the neck is that it sags faster than other body parts. While skincare or the lack of it is responsible for this to an extent, but the pull of gravity affects the neck sooner than other body parts. So, eventually, there will come a point when your neck will sag, no matter how much care you take of your skin. However, this doesn’t mean you should ignore your neck. All it means is that you need to be realistic with skincare and use natural products for your neck and chest too.

There is nothing more annoying than getting wrinkles on the face and realizing that these wrinkles are carved on our faces every time we laugh, talk, or eat. Mouth wrinkles, also known as perioral wrinkles are more common than you may think among people, irrespective of the age. They are fine and deep lines that appear on and around the mouth area. Wrinkles around the mouth indicate that skin has started to lose its elasticity and natural collagen, the primary reason which leads to wrinkles.

Causes of Mouth Wrinkles

There are many facets that can lead to wrinkles such as genetics, age, smoking, and sun exposure. 

Age- Wrinkles around the mouth are a part of the aging process because of the loss of proteins called collagen and elastin, which keep your skin agile and steady. 

UV Rays- Ultraviolet rays from the sun damage the fibers in the skin called elastin and when these fibers breakdown, the skin begins to slump, stretch, and become inept to go back into place after stretching. 

Smoking- Smokers are vulnerable to mouth wrinkles because of the squeezing of the lips, which occurs during smoking. Drinking with a straw is similar to smoking and also leads to the formation of wrinkles. 

Types of Skin Lines in Mouth wrinkles

Vertical lip lines- They are also known as smoker’s lines, but they aren’t certainly from smoking.  Everyone gets them as they age but smokers just get them earlier due to pressing the lips together when they smoke. Waxing and threading your upper lip can also lead to these lines, but they are not as harmful as smoking. 

Marionette lines- These are the vertical face wrinkles that can be found at the corners of your mouth.  Marionette lines can give your face a plunge expression that can make you look angry or serious even when you are just relaxing. 

Smile Lines- They are also known as Nasolabial lines that sneak from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth. They are more perceivable in women as compared to men as they age. 

Prevention is Key

Prevention is always better than treatment. Lips and the surrounding skin are delicate and more vulnerable to damage than other parts of the face. That is why it is important to adopt a skincare routine with an anti-aging product early. You can go for serums that have the required nourishment and can target elastin and collagen synthesis for preventing fine lines and wrinkles on face. Use a serum that is light and gets absorbed into the skin immediately. Also, you can use the serum under sunscreen and moisturizers.

Don’t forget the sunscreen

The key to healthy skin is using sunscreen daily.

Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream is built with SPF 50. It will protect you from the sun, prevent sunspots, and even provide coverage for slight discolorations like hyperpigmentation and redness.

The main cause of wrinkles is the changes in the skin like the breakdown of elastin and collagen tissue that are the result of chronic sun exposure. It is important that you use a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and one mineral component like titanium or zinc. Also, you should use lip sunscreen for enhancing protection.

Try a Night Cream

For avoiding or reducing the pesky face wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, you have to invest in a night cream. Through quality night creams, you will be providing your skin with deep thermal hydration that leads to thickening of the skin and effective reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. There are a few night creams that have been designed specifically for maximizing overnight hydration. You can also try using Vitamin C Night serums that are effective for mouth wrinkles and fine lines. Vitamin C also boosts the production of skin collagen. We recommend the Pilgrim Vitamin C Night Serum that has a non-greasy formula that helps in fighting the signs of premature aging and environmental damage. 

Facial Exercises

Facial exercises target the mouth and cheek areas, helping in increasing the blood flow, and improving muscle tone which eventually leads to reducing fine lines. Facial skin with sufficient muscle tone and collagen can dissuade wrinkling around the mouth.

It is important that you don’t let the concerns regarding wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth prevent you from enjoying the humor and happiness. Yes, laughter and smiles can stretch the skin surrounding the upper link and lead to wrinkles on face over time, but it shouldn’t stop you from living life with unapologetic joy.

Vitamin C Night Serum with Hyaluronic Acid & White Lotus

Our lightweight, easily absorbed and non-greasy formula is the perfect warrior to fight against premature ageing and signs of environmental damage. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that brightens the skin and combats free radicals.

Face packs and masks are essential during summer. The onset of summer not only brings fun and frolic associated with outdoor activities but a lot of skin problems too. For people with dry skin, it is hard to lock all the moisture. The high humidity levels can cause peeling and cracking of the dry skin. Summer acne, rashes, sun allergy, and insect bites can make you want to hide and cover-up. All the pollution, dirt, and UV rays can make skin lusterless, boring, and dull. The cumulative effects of sun exposure can increase the risk of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Fortunately, most of the summer skin damage is easy to treat. You can have the best summer with these amazing face packs. They lock in the moisture and improve the condition of the skin. Here are some more reasons why you should apply for a summer face pack this summer:

Relaxation –

Face masks not only improve your skin’s overall appearance, but they can also be therapeutic. Some summer face pack that are infused with essential oils like rosemary and mint can stimulate your senses and your spirit.

We recommend the clay-based Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Mask that can help in drawing out irritants, excess oil, and pollutants and preventing breakouts. It will leave your skin supple and smooth.

  1. When you are using a skin mask, you can set some ‘me’ time for yourself. Have a warm water bath, light some candles, put on soothing music, and let the magic begin. It will give you a wonderful experience that will relax your spirit and mind.
  2. Deep cleansing –

Cleansing is an important part of your skincare routine. It removes dirt, makeup, oil, and other impurities from the skin. But, with a face mask, the cleansing process can be taken to a completely new level. A good facial mask will be drawing out impurities hiding under the epidermis’ top layer. It can be said that a mask helps the skin through a complete detoxing process. You will be able to notice immediate changes in your skin. 

  1. Unclog pores –

As mentioned-above, masks can help in absorbing excess oils and removing dirt. They also help in removing the dead skin cells accumulated on the skin. Once all the debris is removed from the skin’s surface, your pores will get unclogged too. Clogged pores are a common skin issue. Impurities can get trapped in the pores and are pushed down into the pores where it can lead to the development of bacteria. It can soon turn into blemish, breakouts, or a giant pimple. Using a face mask regularly will help in keeping the skin clean and pores unclogged.

  1. Glowing skin –

Masks can also aid in stimulating blood circulation. The mask dries on the skin and starts to harden. When this mask is removed, it leads to an expansion in the skin’s blood vessels, resulting in an overall improvement in the skin tone. You will have a smoother and softer skin along with a refreshed appearance and a radiant glow. 

  1. Help your skincare regimen –

    When you use masks, it helps other skin care products work better. It helps your serums, day lotions, and night products get absorbed deeper and quicker. This is why a face mask is a must. When you use a skin mask on a regular basis, you are ensuring that your hydrating, toning and protecting products are performing better and giving the results at a faster pace.

Applying a face mask in simple steps

Step 1: It will be a mess. So, be prepared for it. If you are applying the mask in the tub, you can just cover your face, throat, and neck, and just relax. If not, you have to pull back your hair so that it doesn’t get tangled with the face mask. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting messy. 

Step 2: Start by cleansing your face. Use a cleanser for removing all the surface dirt, makeup, and oil before applying the mask. This will ensure that your skin gets all the benefits your mask can deliver. We recommend Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Wash, it is a powerful and gentle cleanser that will not disturb your pH or strip the moisture barrier from the skin. It will help in maintaining the youth of your skin and getting a bouncy and clear skin.

Step 3: Use damp hands while applying the mask directly to your damp skin. You should not rub the face mask into your skin directly. Apply it like you would add frosting to a cupcake. Avoid the eye area, and keep the nostrils clear. The mask can be extended from the face to your neck and throat. You don’t want to end up with a young-looking face with an old, wrinkly neck. 

Step 4: Use these 10 minutes for relaxing, styling your hair, checking your email, or doing anything that you want. Just don’t forget to keep track of time and make sure to follow the directions. If the directions say that the mask should be left on for up to 15 minutes, you have to do exactly the same. Don’t extend the time for 20 or 30 minutes. The benefits of the product are tied to the usage directions. You have to follow them properly.

Step 5: The last step is removing the mask. Masks are created to adhere to the skin. Don’t be too rough while removing it. You can use a washcloth and plenty of water for washing away the mask gently. Don’t rub. Just pat the skin dry using a towel.

Before you apply the summer face pack, you can dab some eye cream or eye gel around the eyes. It will protect this delicate area from getting dehydrated because of the face mask. Also, when the face mask gets dried and you have to take it off, you can place a wet, warm washcloth on the face and hold it for a few seconds. Repeat this a couple of times for loosening and dissolving the face mask from the skin. This will make the process of rinsing off the face mask gentler for the skin.

A skin mask is an important part of a good skin care regimen. In just a few minutes, you will be able to see and feel a noticeable transformation.

Tips To Care For Your Sensitive Skin During Summers

Truth to be told, be it summer or winter, taking care of your sensitive skin is a time-consuming process and demands proper care. To fight your sensitive skin in summer, along with summer face packs, you should also keep an eye on some of your daily practices. Here are some tips to take care of your sensitive skin-

  • Facial Cleansing:

Cleansing is extremely important for all kinds of skin. For sensitive skin, you need a gentle cleanser but effective. Find a cleanser that suits your skin type without over-drying it, yet still, removes the build-up of pollutants and dirt. We recommend you to try the Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Scrub with Yugdugu & White Lotus. It helps remove dead skin cells and impurities, giving your skin the much-needed glow. 

  • Avoid Hot shower:

Hot shower might not be the ideal option for you if you are struggling with sensitive skin. The hot water strips away natural oils and damages the skin faster. So opt for cold or lukewarm water.

  • Sunscreen:

The importance of sunscreen can never be overstated. UVA and UVB rays are harmful to your sensitive skin. Not only the rays can cause skin rash and uneven tanning, but can also lead to premature aging, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, etc. Investing in a good sunscreen is a must for everyone. Try Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream SPF 50 with Camellia & Yugdugu. Built with SPF 50, the cream not only helps protect from the sun but also controls sebum and improves the elasticity of the skin.

Oily and greasy hair tends to look flat and dirty. People who have oily hair have to struggle with greasy looking hair even after washing their hair. Moreover, with the greasiness, your hair can be difficult to style and maintain daily. An oily scalp can also be a reason behind why your scalp is all itchy and irritated even after proper cleansing and washing. However, it is important to understand that not all oil that our scalp produces is bad and causes greasy looking hair. Some amount of oil on the scalp is essential for the proper functioning of the body and for maintaining the oil balance on the scale. However, excess of the production of this oil, known as sebum, can be cause for severe problems such as seborrheic dermatitis and fungal infections. Therefore, it is imperative for everyone who has oil and greasy hair and scalp all the time to know how to take proper care of their hair. Some of the tips that could be useful while dealing with oily and greasy hair are:

  • Washing your hair properly and frequently

    : This may seem like an unimportant tip as everyone knows how to wash their hair but for people with oily and greasy hair, it is important to know the best way to wash their hair so that they can avoid getting oily scalp and severely damaged hair. It is easy to misunderstand and assume that aggressively scrubbing your scalp will help you get rid of the excess oil. On the contrary, this will do more harm than good. The correct way to wash your hair is to take a small amount of shampoo and massage it into the scalp gently so that the surface of your skin is not irritated. You should not apply a large amount of product to the ends of your hair as that is not the area that needs your attention. Focus on the scalp and the roots to deal with oily and greasy hair. Along with this, you should also figure out a routine for washing your hair. For oily and greasy hair, it is advisable to wash them every day or every other day. However, figure out what suits your hair best and set a routine for washing them to help with the problem of oily and greasy hair. 

Using a gentle and mild shampoo to clean your hair:

Using gentle and mild shampoo will help you improve your condition significantly. Harsh and strong shampoo can lead to an excess build-up of oil on your scalp and can even worsen your problem.

Therefore, using a mild shampoo such as the Pilgrim Sulphate Free Shampoo with Argan Oil, Camellia, and While Lotus will help you clean your hair and scalp without damaging it.

  • This shampoo will help nourish your hair by gently cleaning it and soothing the scalp. It will leave your scalp feeling clean and oil-free without drying it out and stripping off all the essentials oil on your scalp. By using this shampoo, you can improve the strength of your hair, make your dull hair come to life and cleanse it gently to provide deep hydration. 
  • Using products made specifically to deal with oily and greasy hair

    : Using specialized products that have been made to deal with your issues rather than general products can help you solve the problem of oily and greasy hair. By doing this you can ensure that all the money and efforts you put in are working on the problem you have. Sulfates and other chemicals are often what cause your scalp to be itchy and irritated and can often be the reason why the condition of your scalp is not improving. Pilgrim products are sulfate-free, which makes them effective in cleaning your scalp properly. 

Using a hair mask:

Including a hair mask into your hair care routine can help you deal with the issue of oily and greasy hair. By applying a hair mask, you can give your hair a naturally smooth look and deal with the issue of dullness caused by the excess oil and greasy look of your hair. We recommend you use the Pilgrim Argan Oil Hair Mask with White Lotus and Camellia to make sure that you get properly nourished and strong hair. A hair mask will help you give volume to your hair which otherwise may look dull and flat due to the excess oil. This hair mask, infused with Argan Oil, Camellia, and White Lotus will give your hair a healthy bounce and make your scalp clean and oil-free.

Pamper your hair with our Argan Oil Hair Mask to infuse dull, lifeless hair with shine and a healthy bounce. Argan oil, an age-old beauty secret, provides protection to the hair from UV damage and other environmental pollutants.

Having a bad hair day? For God’s sake! Not today!? There they are, staring right back at you . . . your luscious locks look not-so-luscious, to say the least. You know you don’t have the time to go through the whole shampooing and blow-drying routine. Now you’re thinking this is going to be the worst day ever (pardon the exaggeration) and already have an excuse ready – my hair has a mind of its own! 

Well, if you have experienced this, then high five girls! Welcome to the ‘We all have Bad Hair Days Club’.

How to manage a bad hair day?

Here are some tips that don’t involve hiding out from your colleague and friends. They are so awesome that they might change the whole melody to good hair days. 

  1. Use dry shampoo

Well, if you don’t own this product, you should get it right away because it is a life-saver. It’s exactly what the name suggests – it’s essentially a shampoo, but one that you can dry-spray over your hair and you don’t need to rinse out. Spray lightly on the roots when lifting your hair and let sit a minute or two before brushing it out. It soaks up the excess oils from your scalp and also gives your hair an instant volume. Your hair will look fresh and you won’t have to think twice before running it over to tame flyways.

Consider getting a Pilgrim Sulfate Free Shampoo. This shampoo has three key ingredients – White Lotus, Argan Oil, and Camellia. With this, you will strengthen your hair, nourish the roots, and repair the damaged strands.

  1. Tie them in a ponytail 

Who doesn’t love ponytails? They look cute and take less than a few minutes. But, if you are thwarted with bumps, then apply heat or wet it out. You can also use the trick called double ponytail if you are running out of time. Gather the back section into a ponytail and secure with elastic, repeat the same with the front section. This trick will take away any unwanted attention from your bad hair. 

  1. Braid them down

Accept it – they looked great on Katniss Everdeen and you know they look great on you. Braids actually look better in dirty hair and they infact hold better, you can play with so many different variations as well. Finish with a glossing spray encompassed with tight braids. Also, if you’re feeling a little trendy, go in for the side braid – it’s a red carpet look and it is super easy to do!

  1. Bun them up

Just that – bun it up! Buns always look better with greasy hair because there will be no fly-aways and works best when it is already a frizzy mess. In fact, the best part about buns is that the messier they are, the better they look. Hairagami is also a wonderful way to get a classy bun. Tease it out, swirl it around, and there you have!! 

  1. Leave-in conditioner

Another great product is the leave-in conditioner. Hair that has not been washed for a day or two will only tend to get worse as the day progresses – oilier and frizzier. This problem is very common in the winter, you can use a leave-in conditioner to manage bad hair so that your hair stays soft and manageable throughout the day. The best bet to prevent frizz is to put the product in it before it dries. 

  1. Accessorize

There are so many ways in which you can take the focus away from your hair! The best is to just hide it – wear a cap, hat, bandana, or scarf (if you can) to just not let the world know of your hair miseries. But if you can’t for some reason, embrace accessories such as fancy pins, clips, hairbands, or elastic bands. Use a couple of bobby pins, twist it in a cross design and hide it under your hair. 

  1. Change your parting

If you don’t want to distress yourself with any of the above-mentioned exertions, then you can combat your bad hair day with this simple trick. You can simply change your parting if you usually part your hair on one side. The other side will have more volume or a better shape to strengthen your hair. You can also try the upside-down hair flip to give it a healthy look. 

  1. Serum

Get yourself a good serum for unforeseen bad hair days. Dryness and frizz can easily be tamed with serum. The Pilgrim Argan Oil Hair serum is a quick fix for frizzy and dull hair. It will detangle your most difficult knots and give extra boost and conditioning to your hair.

The best way to avoid bad hair days is to know your hair type. If you have oily hair, you should use products accordingly and the same goes for dry hair. Hair loss, an itchy, and dry scalp deserve a doctor’s attention. Visit a trichologist to determine the cause. He will examine your hair and scalp to diagnose your disorder.

Sulfate Free Shampoo

Thoughtfully crafted with natures’ best, to bring you the most loving yet thorough care. White Lotus, Argan oil, and Camellia work together to soothe the scalp, strengthen the hair, repair the damaged strands and fights dandruff.
