Help: yellow/whitish shades on senetti pericallis leaves

My potted "reblooming senetti pericallis" is showing some yellow/whitish shades on its leaves, and overall is looking quite haggard. Got it about 2-3 months ago, was doing fine until I put it outside under full sun (facing south-west). it started showing minor yellow shades during the rainy season..but not much. but became more prominent recently and has been looking dry recently. wondering if it was because of the rain during spring or the intense heat in the recent month (no more rains, but strong heat)? or maybe it's because I've been watering it less often (once in 2-3 days instead of every day)
i put it in a shadier spot this week, but hasn't shown much improvement, though there are still flowers blooming.
Would appreciate any advice on what to do to improve the condition of the plants, and ideal location to put it.

thank you very very much

An indoor plant that's put outdoors into full sun will scorch/burn. The damaged tissue won't recover.

If you want it outdoors, you will need to gradually expose it to outdoor conditions - i.e.: harden it off.

thank you for your advice. I will put it in a shady location then outdoors. For the damaged leaves, should I just cut them out? will new leaves grow? thank you
