Monsoon is here in full swing and it is that time of the year when your skin is most vulnerable to dullness, bacterial and fungal infections.
It doesn't have to be that way though. Here are a few monsoon skin care tips that will ensure you looking happy and pretty.
Cleanse your face every day without fail. Use a soap free cleanser to clean your face before you hit the bed and make sure you’ve wiped your skin clean of all the grime, dirt and sweat.
We suggest you opt the Pond's Pure White Anti Pollution Face Wash to cleanse your skin thoroughly as it contains activated carbon which easily absorbs and takes away the dirt and impurities from your skin.
Monsoon can make your skin dull, oily and greasy. So remember to exfoliate your skin every weekend. You can opt for a mild scrub or just whip up a natural scrub at home. Use this to gently slough off dead skin cells and the dirt from your face.
To wash away all the dead skin cells, you need the St. Ives Fresh Face Apricot Scrub as it works to remove excess oil and dirt from your skin. It also contains the goodness of apricot which heals, soothes and protects your skin. Its Vitamin A, B and E content leave your skin glowing and hydrated.
Avoid heavy duty makeup
Because the humid air and the muggy climate during monsoon makes your skin vulnerable to skin infections and breakouts, it is important to avoid heavy makeup. But for occasions when you absolutely have to doll up, don’t forget to use a good makeup remover.
It is extremely important to wipe that makeup off before you go to bed. And we suggest you go with the Lakmé Absolute Bi-phased Make-up Remover as it combines the cleansing properties of oil with the refreshing properties of water to give you a complete cleanse. The bi-phased makeup remover works two ways, the oil phase lifts off makeup while the water phase refreshes and conditions skin without leaving any stickiness. Isn't that your makeup remover dreams come true?
Use tea-tree oil
Face oils might not sound like a great idea when your skin is already oily and greasy but tea-tree oil is a great anti-bacterial agent and works well to eliminate acne.
Opt for face masks
If your skin is too oily and greasy use face masks to cleanse those pores and excess oil from your skin. Clay masks tend to work well on oily skin.
Avoid chemical treatments
Chemical treatments like bleach and extensive facials can be kept on hold during monsoon.
Clean your skin care tools
It is even more important to keep your makeup brushes and sponges clean and dry during monsoon to prevent skin and bacterial infections.
