Caring for your skin during the monsoon can be a little difficult. Exposure to rain water coupled with the increase in humidity can take a serious toll on the health of your skin. So what’s a girl to do? The answer is pretty simple – switch up a few skincare products to suit the needs of the season, and your skin will definitely thank you for it. If you don’t know where to start, then here are four monsoon skincare essentials that every girl needs to add to her beauty routine ASAP…
 

Dove Beauty Moisture Conditioning Facial Cleanser

Dove Beauty Moisture Conditioning Facial Cleanser

Owing to increased humidity, your skin can feel slightly oily and greasy. While this is absolutely normal, a great way to solve this problem is to use a light foaming face wash such as the Dove Beauty Moisture Conditioning Facial Cleanser. This face wash lathers up to do away not just with dirt and impurities, but also eliminates oil and sweat quite effectively.

 

Pond’s Light Moisturiser

Pond’s Light Moisturiser

Using a moisturiser is extremely important, irrespective of the season or your skin type. But monsoon is not the best time to slather on a rich, creamy moisturiser as you don’t want your skin to feel greasy or lead breakouts. Therefore, using a lightweight moisturiser such as the Pond’s Light Moisturiser is ideal for this job. Enriched with vitamin E and glycerine, this moisturiser intensely hydrates your skin minus the greasy texture we all --------------*hate.

 

Lakme Sun Expert SPF 50 PA+++ Ultra Matte Gel Sunscreen

Lakme Sun Expert SPF 50 PA+++ Ultra Matte Gel Sunscreen

Even though it may be cloudy and raining outside, it is mandatory to wear sunscreen, because your skin is still susceptible to UVB damage. We recommend you to wear a sunscreen with SPF 30 and our favourite has to be the Lakme Sun Expert SPF 50 PA+++ Ultra Matte Gel Sunscreen. The lightweight, gel-like texture absorbs into your skin and gives you an all-round protection.

 

Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist

Because of the excess humidity in the air, your skin can feel really oily and sticky, which can also lead to breakouts. Therefore, using a hydrating face mist or toner is really important. The Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist is an excellent product that delivers your skin with a boost of hydration, while keeping your skin tight and firm.
