Monsoons taking a toll on your skin? Whether you’re dealing with dry, oily or combination skin, these tips will help you revive that glow:
1. Excessive oil and dirt on your face leads to humidity, sweat and heat. Cleanse your face with warm water atleast 3-4 times a day. Warm water will prevent you from pimples and acne.
2. Do not use face wash each time you clean your face. This will further lead to accumulation of oil on your face. Use a natural remedy like neem or aloe vera face wash to cleanse your face.
3. Use a gentle body wash because a stronger one will tend to make your skin dry and dehydrated.
4. Your skin tends to get itchy when it comes in contact with the rain water. Therefore, it’s best to use a soap-free, mild face cleanser. For all those with a dry skin, use a cream-based cleanser and if you’re dealing with oily skin, we suggest, you wash your face multiple times in a day to get rid of the greasiness.
5. Scrub your face 2-3 times in a week. This will help you get rid of clogged pores as well as dead skin cells. Also, make sure to use a mild scrub that will not cause any damage to your skin.
6. Never say no to sunscreens. Yes, even though it’s cloudy outside and the sun is not visible, it does not mean your skin is under protection. Ensure the sunscreen is of SPF30 or more and is waterproof. Apply it every time you step out of the house.
7. Lightweight makeup is all you need during the monsoon season to protect your face from looking too cakey. Because cakey skin can lead to acne, thus, damaging the texture of your skin. Water-based products are your best bet during the humid monsoons.
