We're blaming all our trust issues on the rainy season. Much revered across cultures, the monsoons seem great at face value — but boy, do they do a number on our skin. From increasing acne and greasy skin, to causing itchiness and allergies, our list of monsoon woes is never-ending. And it's not like we haven't tried; if you're like us, half your paycheck probably goes into finding the right skincare products for your skin. But this season, we’ve found the answer. We're turning to clean beauty to fix our skin for the rainy days to come.
Why clean beauty? Full of non-toxic ingredients, clean beauty plays an important role in maintaining the skin's health. Replacing irritating and potentially harmful chemicals, preservatives, and synthetic fragrances found in conventional skincare with all the goodness of clean beauty can help soothe monsoon-related skin problems. Also, since your skin absorbs up to 60% of what you put on it topically, and your skin is the largest organ, having a thoughtful skincare routine is super important, don’t you think? So if you’re ready to dive into the world of clean beauty this monsoon, here are the skincare products you'll need to get started.
01. Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash
While we don't recommend over-washing, cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser that doesn't dry out the face but does get rid of impurities is essential during the monsoon, and the Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash needs to be your go-to. Remove all dirt, oil, and impurities with this non-comedogenic face wash that contains triple purified water for cleansing the skin gently.

02. Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner
We often associate toners with alcohol-based, drying astringents, but the Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner is none of those things. A baddie-free clean beauty toner, it will refresh and hydrate your skin, while also soothing it during the monsoon. It's got antioxidant-rich chamomile, anti-inflammatory witch hazel, and soothing allantoin that will take care of a plethora of monsoon skincare problems.
