Summer heat is definitely uncomfortable not only for you but also for your skin. Are you aware that the skin tends to bear the maximum brunt of the harshness of the sun? The humidity and the heat with the temperatures soaring make the oil glands hyperactive. Some of the problems you can face are sun-burn, tan, rashes, itchy skin, excessive oil, and the list can continue. To make this short, here are some tips that can help you get glowing skin even during extreme summers.
Face Mask of Cucumber:
