Seasonal changes bring along a host of issues for our skin. For instance, the humid, sticky weather during monsoon leaves our skin irritated, red and oily — and that’s just the tip of it. Skin allergies, rashes, acne, itchiness and eczema are all common skin woes during monsoon.
The only way to keep these issues at bay is to make sure that we keep our bodies dry and clean while also taking good care of them. We have picked out five floral ingredients that you need to add to your monsoon body care routine to get your body monsoon ready.
The smell of a velvety rose can make anyone’s day brighter and happier. Keeping aside the entire romantic aspect of this flower, did you know that rose and rose water works wonders on your skin too? Rose water has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe skin irritation, redness and prevent infections in the monsoon. Including rose petals or products enriched with roses like the Vaseline Rose Water Moisturizing Gel can do wonders to keep your skin hydrated and supple throughout the day. Since it is a gel-based moisturiser, it spreads easily on your skin without making it greasy — just what you need during the monsoon.
The sweet fragrance of jasmine is a common ingredient in many perfumes. The jasmine oil is also antiseptic, has anti-inflammatory properties and comes in handy while treating skin infections, making it a monsoon essential for your body care. The Dove Coconut Milk and Jasmine Petals Body Wash is infused with the goodness of coconut milk and jasmine petals to soothe and pamper your skin in the monsoon.
The bright mimosa flowers are a sight for sore eyes. Mimosa flower extracts are known to lighten blemishes, stimulate collagen production, and do a great job of exfoliating dead skin too. The Love Beauty & Planet Natural Coconut Water & Mimosa Refresh Body Wash is formulated with ethically sourced Moroccan mimosas and natural coconut water that leave your skin feeling energised and smelling oh-so-divine.
The enchanting lavender is more than just a pretty flower. Most commonly used in aromatherapies due to its calming fragrance, lavender is also amazingly good for your skin. You can use lavender oil to fight acne and even soothe eczema and dry skin. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, this flower is exceptionally good for your skin.
The Vaseline Lavender Moisturizing Gel is a non-sticky body moisturiser enriched with the goodness of calming lavender that will soothe your skin and keep it hydrated for up to 24 hours.
Bright and big, sunflowers can not just make you happy but your skin as well. The sunflower seed oil has emollient properties that make it a superb moisturiser. The abundance of vitamins A, C, and D in sunflowers make it perfect for fighting acne. At the same time, its anti-inflammatory properties help soothe inflammation, making it a perfect ingredient for your body care, especially during monsoon.
The Lux Bright Skin Sunflower & Aloe Vera Body Wash is a paraben-free formula that contains pure sunflower extracts. This body wash is subtly scented and cleanses your skin deeply, keeping it soft and glowing.
