Now that the rains are finally here, it is time to make some essential monsoon beauty swaps and upgrade your beauty kit. As monsoon brings with it its own set of skin woes, it is important to use products that will ensure that you’re rain-ready at all times. To make this easier for you, we have curated a list of products to help you ace your beauty game this monsoon.
If there is one thing that you should never (and we mean never) step out of your house without, then it has to be a foaming face wash. Monsoon is the time when your skin tends to harbour a lot of bacteria and the dirt sticks to your face. This is why washing your face at least once in the middle of the day is a wise decision. The Pond’s Pure White Anti-Pollution + Purity Face Wash is the perfect choice for this. Enriched with activated carbon, this face wash thoroughly removes dirt, dust and impurities to make your skin glow.
Facial cleansing wipes are God-sent during the rains. If you happen to get wet in the rains and your mascara smudges, cleansing wipes are perfect to take care of your smudges without ruining the rest of your makeup. The Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes are the best for this job. It offers precise cleansing without tugging or pulling at your skin.
No matter what a sunscreen claims, it is never waterproof. If you get drenched in the rain, you have to reapply it to protect yourself from the harmful UV rays of the sun as well as your computer screens. We suggest you use the Pond’s Sun Protect Non-Oily Sunscreen SPF 50. The non-comedogenic and dermatologically tested formula won’t clog pores and keep acne at bay too.
Monsoon is the time when your hair experiences maximum frizz. No matter how much conditioner you apply, frizz is something all of us need to battle during the rainy months. To help solve this problem and keep your hairstyle from looking like a nest, always keep a bottle of hair spray in your bag. We highly recommend the Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray as it gives your hair a super sleek look and shine in just a few spritz.
Probably the most indispensable product of monsoon beauty kit has to be compact. This is that one product that successfully salvages the appearance of a rain-havocked face. A few swipes of a compact are enough to mattify your skin and correct minor makeup meltdowns. The Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 Pa+++ Compact is a great product to have on you at all times. Enriched with SPF, this compact not only prevents sun damage, but also gives your skin a super smooth and matte finish. Oh, how we love multitasking products!
