Monsoons provide a much-needed respite from the heat and humidity of the summers. But rains can also make your skin look extremely dull and lacklustre. To avoid this issue, it is of prime importance to follow a solid skincare routine to help you maintain the health of your skin.
For this very reason, we have listed below a few skincare tips that will help your skin glow all through monsoon...
The weather is cloudy and you can’t see enough sunlight, so you can easily skip sunscreen during the monsoon season, right? No! Even though it may be a rainy or cloudy day, you still need to wear sunscreen every single day of the year. You may tan lesser than usual, but the UV rays still damage your skin, making it mandatory to wear sunblock. But remember to pick one that does not wash off easily. The Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Gel Sunscreen blocks up to 97% harmful rays and effectively prevents sun damage.
During monsoon, there is an excess build-up of dust, oil and grime on your face. Therefore, it is really important to wash your face at least three times a day using a mild cleanser. This will prevent the impurities from clogging your pores and leave your skin feeling fresh, clean and rejuvenated. We suggest you use the Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash that washes away dirt and grime to leave your skin clean and hydrated.
Remember to exfoliate
Monsoon is the time when your skin becomes a breeding ground for a plethora of germs and bacteria that can lead to serious acne and other skin infections. To prevent this problem, use an efficient scrub at least once a week and ensure that your skin is squeaky clean. You can use the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Face Scrub to boost your skin’s radiance.
The humidity levels during monsoon rise and hence you may feel like you don’t really need a moisturiser. But this humidity actually tends to dry your skin and rid it off its natural oils. Therefore, it is super important to use a light, oil-free moisturiser like the Pond’s Light Moisturiser Non-Oily Fresh Feel. The water-based formula is ideal for all-round use and leaves your skin perfectly soft and nourished.
Keep yourself hydrated
Apart from a solid skincare routine, it is important to keep yourself hydrated and nourished from the inside as well. Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water every day to help flush out the toxins from your body and keep your skin looking radiant through the rainy season.
