We all like the cold, breezy rain. Although the monsoon has many positives, it does have its share of skin concerns. The rainy season has the potential to harm or worsen skin conditions such as acne, allergies, rashes, and infections. As a result, it is vital to look after both your skin and your entire health. Making minimal dietary modifications is the simple answer.
Follow these tips for a healthy body and skin in the season-
Drink plenty of fluids
In order to restore the moisture lost in the body during monsoons, it is important to keep hydrating yourself. You can add your favourite masala chai, juices, or herbal concoctions with ginger to the list giving you that boost of flavour and strength.
Consume seasonal fruits
The rainy season delivers a variety of seasonal fruits which and their high antioxidant capacity, may do magic for your skin. Oxidants defend the body against oxidative stress. Excess oxygen radicals action can make your skin fade and wrinkle. Add vitamin C-rich fruits to your rainy day's diet such as litchis, pears and peaches.
Avoid eating oily street food
We understand how tough it is to control your hunger pangs during rains, but eating pakoras and samosas, and other street food on a daily basis may lead your skin to wrinkle and lose its shine.
Cook your green veggies properly
During the rainy season, leafy veggies attract more bacteria and pathogens. You do not need to throw them or stop consuming them completely because they are high in vitamins and minerals. Just make sure that the bacterium is killed, simply rinse and boil them.
Seed nutrition is a micro way to ensure healthy skin and body. Sunflower and pumpkin seeds have a lot of vitamin E, which can make your skin look younger, tauter, and more vibrant.
