The monsoon is a pleasant change after the sweltering summertime. As you step outside, the climate is finally comfortable, and a gentle breeze greets you. While there are many benefits to consider throughout this season, keep in mind that it can invite some skin issues. Your skin struggles to react to the variations and preserve its radiance as the weather becomes more erratic and moisture levels rise.
Here are the skincare tips you need to follow during monsoon season for glowing skin:
Use soap-free cleanser
Soap-free washes are mild and don't destroy the skin's natural oils. During the rainy season, shift to a soap-free face wash to remove grime and sweat without drying out your skin. Ensure not to overwash your face; though it seems oily, washing your face three times a day is sufficient.
Exfoliation is key
Exfoliation should be a compulsory step of your rainy season beauty routine on a constant schedule. It aids in the removal of dead skin cells and provides a natural glow to the face. Exfoliating your skin three times a week improves blood circulation, which aids in the removal of pollutants.
Use a toner
Because the increase in moisture makes your skin looks oily and tacky, applying a toner is essential throughout the warmer months. This will keep your skin hydrated and non-greasy during the monsoon season. To keep your skin healthy, choose a product that contains antioxidants such as green tea or cucumber. It's critical to use a toner following scrubbing to remove dirt and minimise pores.
Don’t skip sunscreen
Many individuals make the mistake of removing sunscreen from their skincare routine as early as the rainy season begins. The fact that the sun is masked under clouds does not remove the fact that it has an impact on your skin. Because intense UV rays can readily enter and injure your skin, sunscreen should be used all year, not just in the summer.
Include vitamin C
We recommend including vitamin C-rich fruits and veggies in your routine to fight infections. Raise your daily Intake of Vitamin C by drinking orange juice and eating other citrus fruits. To keep that natural glow, include a vitamin C serum in your monsoon skincare routine. It prevents infections, minimises pimples and scars, and prevents the symptoms of ageing to give you glowing, perfect skin.
Face mask to pamper your skin
A face mask should be used at least 2 times a week in addition to a standard beauty regimen. To soak all the extra oil, including a clay mask in your rainy skincare regime. Products that contain aloe vera, green tea, or other antibiotic components remove germs and pollutants that trigger blisters. A mask made with multani mitti will also work well.
Use antifungal powder
Skin infections are very common during the rainy season. Dirty water and splashes can indeed lead to infections in the foot due to the moisture in the environment making skin moist and causing wetness. During the monsoon season, it is vital to sprinkle some antifungal powder after every bath to prevent infections. With your face, take care of your body too and add any antifungal powder to your daily routine.
